Richmond Park Blend

A mellow, whole-leaf blend of Keemun, Ceylon, and Darjeeling. An exceptional tea that is smooth enough for drinking plain, and sturdy enough to take milk or lemon.

It's fine, I guess?
Donna – NC – May 28, 2020

Smooth to the point of being boring. There isn't anything wrong with it; it just tastes flat compared to the other teas I've tried so far from my order. I've brewed it with a few different steep times and additions, but nothing made it click for me. I'll probably end up mixing it with something a little more flavorful to use up the rest of the tin.

Sometimes, something like Lipton is all that you need?
Nadine – VA – May 14, 2020

This blend is not bad, just a bit dull. Neither the scent of the dry leaves nor that of the brewed cup is any way memorable. The taste is fine, if one-dimensional. The bottom line is: If you want a serviceable cup of tea to carry your milk and sugar in the morning, this will do it. [3 stars -- in my calculus, anything less means I spit it out.]

Smooth and nice.
MATT – MI – March 17, 2020

This is a nice and smooth cup of tea. Light bodied with an almost sweet & tangy finish. Little to no tannins/dryness.

Marie – CA – November 23, 2019

I was looking at the blends and decided to give this one a try—I’m not disappointed! I switch-hit between all types of tea but this one will become a standard with me because of its lack of bitterness or bite. A good full body that is very enjoyable to drink plain (which I prefer) or with honey and/or milk (my husband’s preference).

Elegant and bright. Too nice to add a thing.

Spot On
Jean – CO – June 15, 2019

This blend of leaves is a medium-bodied go-to tea. Like most teas that are new to me, I need 3 cups over a few days to make my decision. And Richmond Park won. It is not bitter at all, and strokes its way over your tongue and down your throat. It's buttery and chewy. It will delight your mouth and warm your belly. Buddha belly for me.

Favorite afternoon tea
Priscilla – CA – June 14, 2019

My favorite afternoon tea, hands down. Has various flavors that come through whether brewed weak or strong; takes milk well and both wakes up and smooths the palate. I've ordered this many times over the years; the blend changed a bit at one point, but still delicious. Hope you carry this blend for as long as I can order tea.

A Steady Friend
Vincent – OH – April 24, 2019

This blend has quickly become my favorite everyday tea. Morning or afternoon, it's a perfect cup. Plain or with honey (I rarely use milk in tea) -- this blend is tasty either way. It is also very forgiving. I've been known to over-steep a time or two, and this tea never became bitter. It's that friendly.

New favorite!
Teresa – NC – January 16, 2019

This morning I tried Richmond Park blend for the very first time and I’m in love! What a lovely smooth and satisfying tea. All the previous reviewers are spot on! I think I’ll make some biscuits/cookies soon for an afternoon tea for one.

Ginny – NH – November 21, 2018

I like a strong tea, one that can stand up to sugar and lots of lemon, and this one is perfect for me. Great flavor, full bodied. I have tried all types of tea and this is my absolute favorite.

Carries you through an active day
John – NJ – November 15, 2018

Nothing quite stands up to an afternoon, especially in cold weather, like Richmond Park. I have British friends, great tea lovers, who have tasted this blend and marveled at its rich, satisfying flavor, with or without milk. It does wonders with a digestive biscuit or a scone. Kudos to Upton's for this offering!

My favorite tea
Judith – NC – August 27, 2018

This is the tea I drink first thing in the morning, and (sacrilege, no doubt) mixed with some Lapsang Souchong for afternoon tea. If I look like I'm running out, I panic!

Like honey
Harton – CA – May 17, 2018

Super tasty with or without milk. Very good

Nice afternoon blend
Gail – MA – February 25, 2018

I am a big fan of strong black teas and drink them throughout the day, but this one is a little lighter and nice in the afternoon and early evening. It has become my 4:30 go to. Lovely brew.

kelsey – CA – November 06, 2017

My favorite blend. I like bold black teas, but they are sometimes too tannic and can get bitter. This has the flavor I like, but is smoother and has less bite. Doesn't really need milk.
