From Upton Tea

From the 2016 first flush season at Victoria’s Peak, this organic, first pluck offering has a wonderfully fresh aroma with hints of flowers and tropical fruit. The light-golden cup has a delicate note of mandarin orange sweetness and floral hints, with a mineral nuance in the crisp, lingering finish.

I always look forward to the first flush options from Upton. I have a goal, thwarted most years by problems (storms &c.) either with first flush harvest or follow-up harvests to someday have more than one flush from the same estate in the same year, in order to do detailed comparisons of how timing affects flavor. Maybe this is the tea and this is the year!

I brewed this using a large tempered glass measuring cup so that the leaf had lots of room to open up and so that I had a wide-mouthed vessel to fish the remains out when I was done my session. Consequently I did have to use a screen to ensure that only the water, not the leaf, got into my cup.

Nonetheless the results were thick, full, dense and delightful. This tea reminds me a very great deal, to the point I had to keep reminding myself what I’m drinking, of a bai mu dan white tea. Very fuzzy, soft, notes including warm hay as well as floral, green brightness &c.

This is excellent leaf. A “good year” for first flush.
