Normally I like most things that come out of Upton Tea, so it pains me to say that I thought this was a truly yucky cup of tea.
The tea leaves are extremely broken up, like fannings. I followed the instructions which said to steep for 3 minutes at boiling. The tea liquor is very brisk, bitter and tannic. In short, everything I do not want in a tea! Might try steeping it again at a lower temp., but I truly could not finish the cup.
