From Upton Tea Imports

This selection is notable for its smooth quality and robust cup, accented with a pleasant, light toasty note. The rich, dark liquor lends itself to the addition of milk.

I’ve been trying to find my pefect Assam, and this came as one of several samples that I’m trying over the last few and next several weeks.

I couldn’t find any malty or toasty notes in this tea-the dominating flavor and aroma was of tomato. That’s right. Tomato. I don’t know what happened to this in the chest as it came over from Assam- or what it was stored next to, but it was really wretched. Drinking it I thought I was going out of my mind. V8 juice? Really? Really.

Just to be sure, I asked several people to take a whiff. Do you smell tomato? Yes! Every one said the same thing. Sorry Upton, this one was a total bust. If I want tomato in the morning, I won’t look for it in my tea. Not my cup, that’s for sure.

Since I had two more people at work wanting to try out teas, I figured I’d grab some samples to do some comparisons while I was doing ordering. Not like I can place a tea order without getting something myself!

This is an okay Assam. Nothing too special, but definitely drinkable. A bit toasty. As it cools, it seems to get stronger and maybe tends a bit to the bitter side. This was only at 1:30. I think at 4-5 min as recommended it would be near undrinkable, at least for me. On to the next!
