I confess to starting out with strong coffee leanings from the time I was old enough to drink it. The occasional cuppa served well as a comfort beverage. It was not until around 2002 and at the insistence of converted family members that I had no Idea what I was missing that I began to make the transition to loose tea. Made easier, I suspect, by the aid of some good Pu-Ehr and Assam teas. Today I still favor those strong cups as well as vegetal Japanese greens but have vastly expanded my range thanks to the education I've recieved over the years from fellow staff members and Upton customers.
Lively yet full bodied with pronounced muscatel character, this small lot wil go fast! It's very complex, almost oolong charecter reveals itself with each sip. A smooth cup and a wonderful treat for any time of day.
The vanilla in this Earl Grey selection blends seamlessly with the bergamot and the base tea, creating a smooth, sweet cup. Even those who would not traditionally reach for an Earl Grey should give this a sample.
