Tasted three Upton CTCs today. This one was my least favorite, and not worth the extra price over the other two. I tasted all three teas with milk.

Compared to the Upton Halmari and Irish Breakfast CTC teas, the leaves on this one looked more golden – a mix of gold and dark. The size of the granules were between that of the other two teas.

The tea seemed bitter at first, but this went away. It was dull compared to the Irish Breakfast. Good body, but no malt, just kind of blah.

Yeah, you nailed this one. Our impressions exactly…

Thanks – I did revist the Irish Breakfast CTC just recently and it was very good.

Interesting! Just goes to show that everything’s worth a second try!
