This is my first tea from Upton.

It smells like other English Breakfast blends I have smelled. That is not necessarily a bad thing, this is a straight black-tea after all.

This tastes very rich. Full flavored. The aftertaste is slightly bitter, but not in a bad way. I get just a slight bitter note that lingers at the end. The tea itself is not bitter, it is just in the aftertaste.

I would definitely drink this again.

Tea: I am relatively new to tea, and joined Steepster to learn more about it. I am very open to suggestions, and enjoy reading everyone’s tasting notes. I think this community is awesome.

Me: I am a software developer working for a small company and absolutely love my job. Despite being a “computer guy”, I love the outdoors, and enjoy backpacking and camping. I also really enjoy philosophy, photography, reading, and music.

69 and lower: I probably would not buy this tea again. I might enjoy it, but I have had other teas that are much better.
70-79: I find this tea good, but have had better teas. I would gladly have another cup, but it probably wouldn’t be my first option.
80-89: This is a cup of tea that I really enjoy, and would buy again.
90-100: This is a cup of tea that I not only enjoy, but find something unique about it. This is something I would definitely order again.
