From Upton Tea Imports

The bold leaves of this tea yield a brisk and flavorful infusion with a dark-ecru color. The cup has a refeshing hint of mint that carries through from aroma to finish. A light pungency adds to the refreshing taste.

This was a free sample from Upton! The packet said that it made a good iced tea, so I decided to prepare it as a cold brew to accompany our picnic for our day at Winterthur

Delicious and refreshing. Great classic tea flavor. I was surprised how strong it was as a cold brew! I only added a touch of sugar, but I think a little lemon would have also complimented the classic flavors. A great treat.

Upton has several teas that they highlight for being good for iced tea, and I am now going to take closer note of their recommendations! This was excellent!

Iced 8 min or more

I now have two samples of Upton’s Adawatte Estate BOPSF and they recommend them for iced tea as well on the packet. I think I will go set them to cold brew now! How long did you let the Shawlands brew for? They recommend 12-48 hours for the Adawatte.


I would say about 16 hours. I don’t think you could go wrong anywhere from 12-24 hours.




I got this one as a sample, too. Now I’m torn between making it iced and brewing it hot — I’ve gotten into Ceylons lately, and I want to see how this compares with the others I’ve been drinking.

Hope you had a beautiful July Fourth at Winterthur. I must get to that gorgeous place one day!


LadyLondonderry – maybe you can do both! It is a generous sample :)

I am still chewing over everything I saw at Winterthur (and I didn’t see half of what they have there! I need to go back!). It really is a mind blowing collection and the gardens are just what I love – natural and wild but not necessarily native – a real collection of things from around the world artfully but respectfully grown.


Sigh. Lucky! I used to get their catalog, and I drooled over it.


I gave in to Upton’s (ever so slight) pressure and cold-brewed it while I was making breakfast this morning. It should be just about done by the time I get home tonight. As I poured the dry leaf into the pitcher, I could smell that minty note they mentioned!


ashmanra – I didn’t even let myself go into the gift shop or book shop – it would have spelled terrible, terrible trouble! I am a member of (which also has hardcovers!) and I was able to trade for a Winterthur needlework book and flower book, so I feel pretty happy about that!


Gasp! Thank you for listing that site!

Brisk, Bold, Refreshing! I even got a solid 2nd infusion out of this black!
An excellent one for my ‘any-time stash’

This was a sample that came with my last Upton order. I picked this out of the cabinet this morning just because it had gotten lost on my tea shelf and miracously appeared today. I put a healthy dose of milk and brown sugar in the tea and it is pretty decent. I’m not too big on Ceylons just because I like a little more heft to my black tea, but this Ceylon has a light malty quality that I really enjoyed. Would I drink this again? Yes, but it would probably suit me better iced!
