Tea Review

Tippy Orthodox Assam GFOP

Upton Product TA40. 2.2 grams steeped for 5 minutes at 212℉. Impression: orange pekoe-size bits, see photo. Dry tea has typical spicy black tea scent. Brewed tea scent is malty and a little stale. Taste: malty, like all Assams. Trace of bitterness. Not astringent.


An excellent Assam black tea. This has been my favorite black tea since I first opened the package in May. I am running out just now, and am sad.
