MediocreMediocreNot Worth Paying For

In contrast to Upton's broken-leaf teas from Darjeeling and other Himalayan regions, I am continuously disappointed by Upton's broken-leaf Ceylons, and this one continues the pattern.

Brewed as recommended, this tea is undrinkably strong. I recommend using less leaf and a much shorter steeping time. Even then, it's unpleasantly harsh. There's a bit of complexity, just a bit, in the aroma...a sort of bright quality, without being fresh. This tea is too heavy and I feel like it's bogging me down. I have yet to finish a cup of it!
