Nice honey hued liquor. Smooth taste. Classic Ceylon. I think milk or sugar could be added without over powering this tea. Ceylon fans should give it a try.

Amber liquor. Aroma is very mild. The taste is very mild. It would be fine for all day sipping. To my taste, milk or sugar will overpower this tea.

Strong flavor and aroma. Delightful Yunnan. I bought these for dining out. When I go out for breakfast, I take some of these along. I enjoy this tea and find it much more flavorful than the national brand the restaurant offers.

My brew had a very dark, deep brown liquor. Good taste with a hint of a smoky after taste. Probably strong enough for milk or sugar for those who indulge. Some lemon might be just the thing.

Dry, this tea has a very subtle aroma. The liquor is amber colored. Overall, a bit milder than I expected from previous black snail.

I bought these sachets for when I go out for breakfast. I have a usual place I go to on Saturdays. That restaurant only has Lipton (fannings grade). I prefer a full leaf tea, and this does the job nicely. Good flavor and easy to take along.

Dark brown liquor. Mild flavor and aroma. A bit "anemic" for my taste. I never use milk or sugar, I think this tea would be overwhelmed by either.

My tea tastes are rather narrow. I rarely stray from Assam or Yunnan loose leaf. Trying this reminds me why I enjoy these types the best. Lovely "peppery" smell, beautiful liquor, and most important, excellent taste. Upton, in my opinion, never fails to deliver an excellent tea at a great price.
