tea

cup of green joy

Upton Tea (A local company, very close to here in Hopkinton Massachusetts) is my preferred tea purveyor and has been for years. Inexpensive, perfect customer service, and what they don't spend on marketing they pend on providing awesome tea at low prices.


I celebrated a long-delayed check with some green tea, which arrived today. And they had thrown in a sample of Gen-Mai Cha with it.


Oooh, this is nice.


A++, will drink again.

Another Upton fan! I've been buying from Upton for a couple of years. Their selection is impressive. Sad that the teas I want the most are also the most expensive, and 'most expensive' often means 'crazy expensive'.

Although I'm pretty sure that people pay for ordinary Starbucks stuff the per-cup prices I'm saying are 'crazy', so. Values differ.

Right now I'm drinking Pi Lo Chun, Lung Ching/Dragonwell, Sencha No. 2, and Gu Zhang Mao Jian. Also gunpowder from Stash. I'm fond of Upton's pre-Chingming Pi Lo Chun, it's quite different than the standard Pi Lo Chun, it has a savory, almost bacon-and-eggs taste, but last year it was absurdly expensive. Let's see how it comes around this year.
