This’ll make you pucker! Definitely malty, not much else to comment on.

Most companies send samples to make me want to buy, and I kinda wonder if Upton was trying to unload some tea that backfired with this sample. This is one of those teas I’m okay to finish but won’t even look up the price for. I love Indonesian coffees, but maybe tea just isn’t Java’s thing. Or, being as positive as possible, maybe it’s absolutely fantastic in blends!

You may like it more with a lower temp and shorter steep. Otherwise, try it iced or cold brewed to tame it!

Fair enough. I still have some!

Brewed Western method, in a filter bag and mug.

I received this as a free sample from my last order. It is Incredibly brisk in strength. The flavor is heavily malty, so much so that it is overwhelming. This can’t be drunk without milk or sugar, or both (unless you have taste buds of steel). I had to add A LOT of milk. There was still this bitter taste that wouldn’t go away though. Best suited as an early morning tea, for those who need a hammer on the head equivalent of a wake up call in terms of tea.

I bought this thinking it would make for a nice, brisk black tea in the morning. It’s far too astringent for my taste. I brewed it 3-4 minutes, and still bitter with no other notes to make it drinkable for me. It is bland, like the other reviewer mentioned.

There is no depth. The taste is not bad, just one dimensional . Try for iced tea
