May. 31st, 2019

I bought a cup of this from a Dunkin Donuts and liked it, so I bought a box to brew at home. The sachets are large and each contains 3g of finely-chopped tea. The box doesn't say which teas are in the blend (other than "from around the World"), but the tea looks orthodox rather than CTC.

The brewing tea has a strong...

I really like this tea. It doesn't overpower with a single flavor, indicative of a good blend.

This has a smooth, rich flavor, although with a touch of sharpness (short steeping time is better). It practically begs to have milk added, which I don't typically do. Taken black, I find it a little lacking in sweetness. The aroma comes more from the Ceylon and is pleasantly nutty, while the Assam ensures a malty fini...

Mar. 24th, 2019

The most notable aspect of the flavor is that it's tannic, although not overly so. Still, it lacks much else to recommend it. I'd rather it had a bit more citrus to balance it, but there's just not a lot to it.

This strikes me as a tea perhaps intended for coffee drinkers looking to switch it up. It's also mild en...

This has a pleasant, earthy aroma that fades too quickly once you drink it. I was let down by the fairly bland taste. It's labeled as a blend of Ceylon and Indian teas; the Ceylon taste comes through the strongest and there isn't much to it past that.

It's acceptable with some additions, but I doubt I'd get it agai...

A good all-purpose, pretty mellow black tea. This blend of Keemun, Ceylon, and Darjeeling is a notch above supermarket teas.

A smooth and enjoyable tea. Not as hearty as claimed, but it is not wimpy either. Good with milk or with lemon and sugar. Worth the bargain price.

I usually enjoy Upton's British style tea blends and this is no exception. The mix of malty Assam with a lightly smoky Yunnan makes a super all-around tea. It is good with milk, or in a masala chai, and lemon and sugar, while eccentric, also works.

It's a very good tea without anything that makes it stand out. Just a well balanced blend.

I would like to try this loose-leaf.

My favorite breakfast tea. Less earthy than Adagio's English Breakfast tea, and smoother. Sadly, a little bit costly.

This is called an Irish breakfast, but for my tastebuds it seemed closer to an English breakfast or even a mainstream prebagged tea. It is pretty versatile and mellow. It goes best with milk but can take lemon or be used for masala also. Good.

This is one of the best breakfast teas I have ever tasted. This tea is a blend of a high grown Ceylon black tea and Assam black tea. It has several golden tips in the tea. It has a fine aroma, and a very fruity taste with a little malt from the Assam. I first had this tea at an upscale restaurant in Nashville where it ...

A good versatile blend that works well with milk or lemon/lime. Probably would be good on ice too. Fairly smooth with some iron/cedar taste. Good value too.

After bringing this breakfast tea home from a conference, I tried it at dinnertime while eating a tub of cottage cheese. The tea brewed up very dark, quickly, such that a spoon disappeared from view below about the top two inches of liquid. This wasn't too surprising, considering how finely chopped the dry-bag leaves...

"Devonshire" has one of the most full-bodied dry-bag aromas I've gotten from a breakfast tea, and unusually, it nearly matches the flavor for intensity. I detected virtually no difference between dry-bag scent, in-cup scent, and taste, the latter likewise being straightforwardly well-constructed within a nice, dark br...

Smells earthy, like a pu-erh, or one of the less sweet Yunnan blacks.

Numi's website says that this tea contains Keemun and that's the first impression I get from the flavor; it's full of dark molasses and prunes or raisins with a bit of cocoa. The finish is dryer, and the earthiness I noticed in the aroma lingers. ...

For a budget priced tea, I am very happy with this. Reasonably robust and flavorful, this shines on ice but is good hot too. Blends well with citrus and sugar. This is also an excellent choice for Indian masala chai. A very versatile and well priced tea. I've ordered it several times now.

This tea gets a B+ on quality and a C- on marketing and presentation. The name suggests it is a Darjeeling, but the description (and flavor) betrays that it is actually a blend of a Darjeeling and a Ceylon. I think this is a borderline shady marketing practice: Darjeeling is obviously the more prestigious name, so blen...

An above-average, basic black tea in a tea bag.

I've tried the loose-leaf version of this tea, and gave it a very good review, but I only had the opportunity to try the tea bag recently, when I stopped at a rest stop on the Ohio turnpike and ordered a cup of tea at a Gloria Jean's coffee stand.

First of all, I wa...

For a food-service tea, this seemed slightly above average...I've had worse, but wouldn't seek it out for home consumption. This is one that, if you spot it in a motel or (as I did) receive it as "hot tea" in a breakfast cafe off I-70 in Kansas, can be consumed safely and without obvious problems. I realize that's no...
