I couldn’t resist breaking into my just-delivered (to my office) Upton order and making a cup of this one with my new Finum brewing basket. The first impression I got was honey, loud and clear, even though I had not added honey or any other sweetener. That honeyed note is staying with me as I drink it, and being joined by a tobacco-y quality that I’m finding quite seductive. I was hoping this might fill the “tasty, affordable everyday tea” niche, and I think it will do so nicely!

I just had a cup, and had to brew a second one to make sure there hadn’t been residual honey sitting in my mug.

Bio

I am a nearly lifelong tea drinker, a habit to which I ascribe much of my good health and good humor. I enjoy all types of tea but find special comfort in strong black teas lightened with a splash of unsweetened almond milk.
