"This is a good tea, in the sense of being an above average tea. But, I have come to expect a lot from the Nuwara Eliya teas that I have been purchasing from Upton for several years. This tea, while a good tea for the price, falls a little short in the "Nuwara Eliya" flavor that I have come to expect."
