  About :

I started drinking tea as a young girl and have loved it ever since. My choices used to be quite simple: English and Irish breakfast blends or strong Earl Grey. A family member finally introduced me to loose leaf tea and from then on, I was hooked. Once I was old enough to buy my own tea, I started to experiment a bit more. I discovered Upton Tea Imports first as a satisfied customer but now enjoy tea daily, as an employee.

My tastes in tea and my appreciation for variety has grown significantly since working here. Though my journey with tea started with a love for strong, hearty breakfast teas, I find that I now prefer lighter, more floral teas, such as lightly oxidized Formosa Oolongs and First Flush Darjeelings. My preferences continue to change and I find new favorites everyday.

    1. TC93 :  Adam's Peak White Tea

By far, my favorite white tea. This selection has a sweet flavor and is an interesting change from a China white.

    2. TE06 :  Saint Isaac's Blend

While I don't usually drink Earl Greys, this selection is an interesting choice. It has lighter bergamot but with other citrus flavors. Tastes good iced, too.

    3. TP60 :  China Congou Panyang (Panyong)

I like this as an every day tea. Smooth and not overly strong, it's an enjoyable cup to wake up to.

    4. TT88 :  Formosa Oolong Spring Dragon

One of my favorite Oolongs! The aroma of the infused leaf reminds me of the beginning of spring when all the flowers begin to bloom. A delicious afternoon treat.

    5. ZG39 :  Organic China Ho-ji Cha

This is my favorite green tea. Because it's roasted, it doesn't have the typical vegetal quality that one comes to expect from a green tea. It has a smooth, toasty flavor with absolutely no bitterness.

    6. ZY84 :  Yunnan Rare Grade

I start craving this tea when it starts to get a bit colder and the leaves begin to change colors. It has warming cocoa notes and a bit of a spiciness which makes it perfect choice to start an autumn or winter day.
