Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a bit of this tea. I can’t find this on Upton’s website anymore so I’m guessing it’s sold out.

I disagree with my Sister on one point regarding this tea … it doesn’t look like fannings to me, but it is a very finely cut CTC. It is a very rich and flavorful tea, nice amount of malt and a wine-y quality to it as well. A nice Assam … it definitely does have a harsh side to it and I think if it was left to steep too long it would have been bitter (I steeped it for 2 minutes and that produced a really flavorful cup with minimal bite)

A good Assam … I’ve tasted better, but, this one certainly would work as a good jump start in the morning when you need one.

After seeing their actual fannings I did see the difference :) I agree with you they are very fine…after comparing it to some of their others, for sure! :)

Glad you got the package ok! HUGS!

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes. I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. If you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
