Great Yunnan scent. Large leaves. Nice honey colored liquor. Taste is good, a bit mild. I'm sure this will be a great 'all day' tea. Might be a bit mild for milk or cream. Minor problem with I needed to purchase 10 packets to get the full amount I wanted.

Nice amber colored liquor. Subtle aroma and flavor. The 'pearls' open up during steeping. Would not be my first choice if I wanted a 'strong' Yunnan. Very enjoyable.

Strong flavor and aroma. Delightful Yunnan. I bought these for dining out. When I go out for breakfast, I take some of these along. I enjoy this tea and find it much more flavorful than the national brand the restaurant offers.

Dry, this tea has a very subtle aroma. The liquor is amber colored. Overall, a bit milder than I expected from previous black snail.

Yunnan GFOP from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Black Tea – Region: Yunnan, China

100 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Feb. 2nd, 2014

My tea tastes are rather narrow. I rarely stray from Assam or Yunnan loose leaf. Trying this reminds me why I enjoy these types the best. Lovely "peppery" smell, beautiful liquor, and most important, excellent taste. Upton, in my opinion, never fails to deliver an excellent tea at a great price.

Picture of China Pu-Erh Leaf

China Pu-Erh Leaf from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Pu-erh Tea – Region: Yunnan, China

57 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Dec. 5th, 2013

This is my first try of Pu-Erh. It's very strong. The aroma is similar to damp soil. The liquor is very dark. I think this tea is strong enough for milk or cream and sugar. I will be careful in my next selection of a Pu-Erh. If you enjoy a really bold cup of tea, this might be what you are looking for.

The aroma is "earthy". The leaves are rolled into small balls, thus the snail name. Liquor has rich color. Excellent clean clear flavor. I'm impressed with this tea. Certainly it has made it to my top 3. I will purchase this tea again and again.

I really enjoy this Yunnan. Great aroma. Excellent flavor. I make a large pot and keep it in a thermos and sip all day. I never add milk or sugar, but it might be a bit "strong" alone for some tastes.
