A never opened sample of this appears to be my last oolong sample from Upton. I have a few more from Canton, but in terms of the first-tasting-first-note project, I’m in good shape with oolong samples. I should be able to finish tasting them during this holiday break.

This tea is very pretty, festive-looking even. It has dark to medium brown leaves with flashy silver tips. Definitely extra fancy. The leaves smell pungent, toasted, slightly minerally and otherwise like a typical dark oolong.

Gaiwan, rinse, 195F, 15 seconds +5 afterwards through four steeps.

After steeping, the tea is pale yellow and clear, though it darkens with subsequent steeps to more of a golden color.

The aroma has notes of grape, raisin, peach, and peach pit. It has a suggestion of sharpness, but that turns out to be an illusion. The flavor is surprisingly smooth.

And it’s largely consistent from steep to steep, though the second steep definitely had a roasted peach and peach pit flavor front and center.

A very nice dark oolong.
