One of my first oolongs, this is a darkly roasted tieguanyin a very traditional and classic oolong but with a strong nutty kick. Perhaps not Upton’s highest grade of tieguanyin, and perhaps it wouldn’t satisfy some of the most pretentious tea masters of the world but for the incredibly cheap price and great taste this tea is absolutely worth it.
The pricing like all of Upton’s wares are incredible. I stocked up with as much as I could once it came back in season and have been making it gongfu whenever possible. Always left me satisfied.
Flavors: Nutty, Stonefruits
