Recent Tasting Notes


Very light, not acidic or tart at all, very smooth. Almost doesn’t taste like “regular” tea.
A very nice alternative tea.

Medium Bodied black tea.

Bought on 1/24/07; still like, it’s a full-bodied tea, pretty nice although not the exceptional Mokalbari I had while in China 10 years ago that I was trying to find.

I’m honestly pretty tired of these upton samples.
This tastes like wet autumn leaves. Light barky kind of earth.
It reminds me of teavana’s Qilan Fired Oolong, which I got like 150g of because it was on sale I think they discontinued it way back when before I knew anything about tea. Anyways, the point is, I drank that one like twice and then gave the rest away because bleh.
Now, granted, this is a bit better, there’s some complexity, there’s a grassy sweetness and a bit of buttery burnt toast. Some minerals. There’s something about it that slightly repulses me on the sip, like a sort of dark acidity. It’s one of those teas that seems to be giving me a headache. It gets astringent in the middle..

You know what I’m gonna be honest, this session has, I’m sure, lots of longevity left, but I’m really not up for it.
I don’t like this.

I’m gonna drink some pu’erh. Pu’erh’s always nice to me.
