About Upton Tea Imports

Upton Tea Imports is a loose-leaf tea company, founded in 1989, and headquartered in Holliston, MA. Upton originally was located nearby in Hopkinton, MA. Upton is the tea company that inspired the creation of RateTea; Alex Zorach started ordering teas from Upton and created RateTea as a tool to keep track of teas they were drinking.

Upton mostly sells single-origin teas, and often sells ones in limited batches; their catalogue changes frequently. Their offerings include many organic teas, certified by Baystate Organic Certifiers, as well as a few fair trade certified teas. Many of their organic teas are comparable in price to corresponding non-organic counterparts. In addition to tea, Upton also sells a few teapots and tea-related accessories.

Upton publishes the Upton Tea Quarterly, a mail-order catalog and newsletter which also contains educational and historical information about tea. Past editions of the Upton Tea Quarterly are available on Upton's website, going back through 2006. An incomplete archive going back to 1998 can be found on archive.org.

In order to ensure freshness, Upton tea packages tea only when it is ordered, marks the date of packing, and personalizes the labels on each package of tea ordered.

Organice Fukamushi Cha

Style: Green Tea – Region: Japan
Jul. 9th, 2021

This is a new one for me - a fukamushi tea. It looks like a bancha, but according to Upton's website fukamushi is its own category. A websearch shows me that it is a moderately to fully steamed green tea, usually a sencha. This has a wonderful earthy, fresh woodlands aroma. The taste is light and leafy, with a fair...

Wonderful aroma, with a slight sweetness. The liquor brews to a dark brown. The flavor is solid Assam, no after taste or hints of anything but tea. I will buy this again.

Meleng Estate Assam

Style: Assam – Region: Assam, India

The aroma is classic Assam with a hint of fruit (peach for me). The liquor is a pleasant dark brown. The taste is good, with a slight sweet after taste that lingers for a moment.
