"This is my family's favorite tea, we drink it almost every morning. Rich, dark cup, forgiving if oversteeped. Slight earthy flavor. Great on its own or with milk." Margaret L Snowden

"The previous reviewer got me interested with the rave review. That only makes it more disappointing. This is a fairly lackluster tea, not bad, but not good. I don't blame Upton, it certainly is inexpensive, but the truth is you get what you pay for here."
