Does anyone else line-up their yet-to-be-tried-new-tea-packages like lil soldier/men? Well, apparently that is what I’m doing these last few days! LOTS and LOTS of tea to be tasted! Woot!

This one smells REALLY nice! Festive, even! A Combo of vanilla, almond, apple, orange, spice, and more! Ahhhhh!

It gives off a lovely color a bolder orange-brown.
As for the taste I can first pick out the apple and mellow spices followed by the citrus and it ends with the welcoming spec of vanilla. I really enjoy the end sip finishing with this vanilla – it’s a nice creamy segue to the aftertaste of that and the almond.

The flavors in this tea aren’t over-the-top which make is all work well and worth while. I like it!

At the beginning of this cup I was listening to the Rolling Stones and now I am listening to…The Beatles.

Now that you mention it, I too line my tea samples up like little soliders lol
I sort of daydream about having a little tea cupboard with many little drawers that I could put the sample tea in instead. that would be fun. and a lot more organized

LiberTEAS

Well, what I do is the day before a “normal” day for me (that is, days that my husband will be at work so I can therefore drink tea and review the teas that I drink … so I focus on new to me teas on those days), I put the teas that I want to drink for the next day in a bowl, and I sort of line them up according to the order that I will drink them. LOL Like if I’m going to have a yerba mate or guayusa, that comes first, then the black teas, then Matcha, then, green teas, Oolong, and then White. Then caffeine free choices.

LOL I guess I am a nerd.

I have my teas divided by type: Black, naturally flavored blacks, questionably flavored black, green, on and on…Each one is in a box or cupboard space, and they are in a line of sorts, so that I ‘have’ to use the one in the front, which then goes to the back. Anytime I get new teas, they go to the front of the line.

Of course, this system is null and void anytime I’m in a bad mood, or just don’t feel like following my own ‘rules’, or if someone comes for breakfast I let them pick any tea they want to share. Also, admittedly, they get mixed up all the time, and are always outgrowing their various boxes, baskets, and shelves. I need a really an awesome big cabinet with lots of nice compartments, just for tea!

Just another right brainer’s attempt at organization…

The smell of this one was surprising when I opened the packet. It’s very apple-y, with cinnamon and orange and sweetness. I love the smell! It’s almost like apple cider, but better somehow. Hopefully it doesn’t disappoint after steeping.
Well, I’m pretty disappointed. It’s nearly flavorless. I’m wondering if I somehow didn’t put in enough leaves? I’m going to reserve my number rating until I can try again with a stronger infusion.

Don’t you hate it when the scent is exquisite and the flavor is meh? Just like dangling a carrot under your nose, then yanking it away. (Unless, of course, you don’t like carrots.)

IrishBreakfastLass

I do! It’s the biggest disappointment!

Terri HarpLady

yeah, that’s a real bummer.

Another sipdown! While this isn’t a bad tea it is for sure a winter tea. I’m not overly a fan of black spiced sort of teas in the summer. Still though, a decent enough blend that i could take or leave from upton.

Thanks IrishBreakfastLass! Mm this smells so good! It made my entire kitchen smell like cinnamon. It’s strongest flavor is cinnamon(maybe a bit too much for my liking) but I can get hints of apple, vanilla, and orange. Mm :] Thanks again!

I’m glad you liked this one. I wasn’t getting much flavor at all, which made me really sad since it smelled so darn good! lol

Since I found Upton by following Steepster, it’s perhaps fitting that my first remarks on the site is for theirs. I just received 8 samples today, and decided to test 3 “spiced” ones tonight. First up is this one, but will be comparing with Cinnamon Chai and Tropical Spice.

One of the problems I’ve had with flavored black teas, is the black tea itself can be very bitter (looking at you Adagio). This one isn’t (phew). Overall, the spices are blending well, with cinnamon definately the star. I’d classify this a “medium” spice, leaning towards mild. For those who don’t like chai spices that are too heavy-handed, this one might please. For me, they’re a little too light, but tasty/good (will finish sample).

Hi Cheryl! Welcome! From your two reviews, I think you will be needing to try some Hot Cinnamon spice from Harney & Son’s! It is like red hots in a cup (loose seems to be spicier than sachet or bags…). Oh, and I so agree with you about Adagio’s tea base. :/ I do think you will like Upton’s Tropical Chai. I just had Upton’s Rooibos Chai this evening….. Think chai but a little heavier on the anise than the other chai spices.

Cheryl

Thank you for recommendations. Will add those 2 to my (rapidly expanding) shopping list !!!

This was one of the best teas we’ve had in a while! What a pleasant suprize! We had this sample in our cupboard for a while, and just decided to brew up a pot this evening. It has a nice spiciness and is also kind of creamy and smooth. Went really well with milk!

Wow, this was fantastic.

The official description calls it a “Fireside” tea which is very fitting. That mulled-wine style vibe of cinnamon, orange peel and cloves is right there for the taking. It’s kindof like a Black Chai Spiced tea, but a lighter version of that. Not overwhelming, just very well balanced. I really liked this.

What a beautifully warm tea! Nice cinnamon aroma and flavor, enhanced by adding milk/half-and-half and sugar. Well-rounded, smooth, relaxing tea with a good moderately strong flavor – not overpowering, but not weak and therefore lost if adding said milk and sugar.

I am old enough to remember the “Market Spice” tea craze of the seventies (which thankfully is over….I could barely walk into a store that sold tea without nearly gagging on the overwhelming clove-cinnamon-fake orange smell. This tea on the other hand has a wonderful citrus, woodsy and spicy quality without losing the tea flavour. It is my fall evening around the campfire tea.

Spicy aroma, but not overpowering; reminds me of hot cinnamon candies. Tannin level a bit high for my taste, but a dash of milk helps smooth this out. A warm, comforting cup.
