This is another really lovely white tea from teakruthi. I've often found it difficult to find a white tea I really enjoy, but both of theirs are quite pleasant and smooth. This one has a rich flavor without bitterness and it resteeps well, which helps to mitigate the relatively high price compared to their other teas.I...Read Full Review

I am normally not a huge fan of tippy, lighter-colored white teas like this, but I thought this was pretty exceptional and was one of my favorite lighter white teas that I've ever tried. It isn't exactly a silver needle, but I compared it as one, it would be the second-favorite one I've ever tried.Read Full Review

Style: Ceylon Black Tea – Region: Nuwara Eliya, Sri Lanka80 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5

I agree with Alex that it has flavors reminiscent of a Darjeeling -- a smooth black tea with slightly raisin-like notes. It would make a very interesting basis for sweet tea (brewed strong with plenty of sugar, then chilled with ice) as made in the southeastern U.S. I found that brewing the tea a bit strong didn't hurt...Read Full Review

This was remarkable, it was like a smoother rendition of a Darjeeling first flush. I found it hard to brew but once I figured it out, it was exquisite. The main downside I found about it, like some Darjeelings, I wasn't crazy about how I felt after drinking it.Read Full Review

I enjoyed this tea but thought it the most overpriced of Teakruthi's offerings so far.Read Full Review
Dry leaf smells quite good, like a Chinese tea, a little vegetal and slightly floral, suggesting of a slight edge. It reminds me of chun mee both in smell and appearance, but is more vegetal.
I like this tea but it can get ove...

This was an interesting tea, recognizable as white tea, and more like Silver Needle in style than any other style of white tea, but still unlike any other white teas I've tried. I've tried brewing this tea several different ways.Read Full Review
With a briefer infusion and lower-temperature water, it brews a pale amber with a slig...

This is the first broken-leaf Ceylon from Upton that has been drinkable to me, and I'm surprised to find it completely lacking in the harshness that the other ones I've tried have had.Read Full Review
The aroma is totally unlike any black tea I have tried...it reminds me of rice and rice pastries. I like Upton's description "brigh...
