Picture of Black Label Breakfast Fannings

Black Label Breakfast Fannings from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Black Tea – Region: Blend

55 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 4/5
Apr. 22nd, 2018

Mine was called Breakfast Blend (not Breakfast Fannings.) This is light and bland for a breakfast tea, with some metallic tannins and a cereal-like taste. The price is certainly low enough, but it is nothing special.

Upton China Jasmine Green Tea from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Jasmine Tea – Region: China

60 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 4/5
Apr. 21st, 2018

Here is a mediocre jasmine tea from Upton, which does offer some better ones. The base tea is not very interesting, and the flower aspect is not the best. It is still drinkable tho, and it does smell nice. It is called "China Jasmine" on the website but the label reads "Jasmine Green Tea." Offered at a low price.

Extra Bergamot English Earl Grey from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: Blend

90 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Apr. 20th, 2018

This has a little more bergamot than your average earl grey, but it is not overwhelming - it is still within the normal range for an EG. I find this to be a very good tea, nice with lemon (which is my favorite way to take EG), and possessing a pleasant aroma. It is not my favorite EG from Upton, but it is one of the ...

Gen-mai Cha from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Genmaicha – Region: Japan

65 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Apr. 16th, 2018

It is sencha with toasted brown rice - I wonder who thought that up? This provides a little heft and cracker-like flavor to this green tea. I'm rating it in 2018, but I liked it a little more in some prior years.

Bancha First Grade Organic from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Bancha – Region: Japan

55 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
Apr. 13th, 2018

I have purchased this a number of times, and the quality varies from year to year. This 2018 batch is not the best, but it is still a pleasant green tea, with a light vegetal flavor. The price has steadily increased over the years.

Rose Congou from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Rose Black Tea – Region: China

85 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Apr. 11th, 2018

A favorite of mine. Lots of rose flavor and aroma mixed with a Chinese black tea makes for a lovely cup! It doesn't taste artificial at all - I'm guessing the rose effect is coming from real roses. And the price ($5 for 100 grams in 2018) is fantastic, given the quality.

Style: Yin Hao Jasmine – Region: China

65 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
Apr. 10th, 2018

Very tasty, with a light, green smokiness blending with the sweet, floral flavor. Clearly an above average jasmine tea.

Green Tea Blueberry from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Flavored Green Tea – Region: China

65 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 1/5 Value: 4/5
Apr. 10th, 2018

The picture is a little deceptive - it appears to be packed with dried blueberries, but so far I haven't seen any. It is a bland green tea with blueberry flavoring, which makes it taste like chewing gum. This would probably be OK in the summer, maybe on ice.

Nutty and flavorful, but still pleasantly smooth. A good Assam imo.

Mine was called Doomni Estate Black Tea, but it has the same number as what is on here. A smooth, lightly nutty Assam. Good.

Moroccan Green Mint from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Green Tea with Mint – Region: Blend

95 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Mar. 30th, 2018

This is one of their cheaper teas, but for me it hits the spot. There is a good amount of spearmint and it blends well with the tea that is used. Make sure to add sugar and not oversteep, and you will have a delicious cup. It is a fine choice when a low caffeine tea is called for.

This is one of my favorites, and I buy a bag of it every autumn. With flavors of apple, clove, and spices, it works perfectly with honey.
