An Oolong of the Lotus Kind..

I had once had a lotus scented green tea, and then it was lost from me and I never found it again. But, today while flipping through the Upton Tea Quarterly I found a Lotus Oolong..I ordered a nice little sample but while I wait...has anyone ever had it?

Just my thought on Upton, I have contacted them several times requesting that they post harvest info on their site and the Quarterly. They gave me a very hmmm, well a response any politician would love. So, I simply moved on.

I just know I have had too many teas from them that were not fresh. They did tell me I can email them to ask about individual tea harvest info. Well, I have a life and there are more than enough vendors who readily provide this info.
