  • This is my second 'go to' tea on a more daily basis. It's only preceeded by my all time favorite, Scottish Blend, for a bracing cuppa.
  • Nice daily drinker

  • New to Assam but enjoying this a lot so far. Malty like some have said, plus slight chocolate. Goes bitter quick early on though. My ritual is 1.5 tsp to 8-10 oz. I first steep 5-10 seconds and dump, to lose some of the astringency in the first cup. Then I do a cup for 4 minutes, and grandpa style after that. Love the sweetness towards the end.

  • My go-to morning tea. Double-strength with a strict 3 minute steep gives a rich, smooth and malty cup at a very reasonable price. Only downside is that it gets bitter very quickly if you let it steep too long.
  • Nice, fresh lot

  • Barry – MN – April 09, 2020
  • Fresh lot. Rich, classic, malty, no frills flavor. Strong performer for the modest price. Beats most of the broken leaf breakfast blends, but not the more ephemeral estate Assam offerings.
  • Excellent tea

  • Not bad

  • Malty, I guess. Don't know a lot about Assam tea. Rich, some tannin but not too much. Vibrant. Potent. Yum.
  • Delicious Morning Steep

  • After finishing my first cup from the sample I got I found myself craving more. I picked it because "This is our most popular Assam." and I see why. It sports the great nose of a malty roasted elixir and the taste is thick with slight roast, malt, hints of chocolate and honey. I can see this as my default Assam tea. Delicious.
  • An Exceptional Tea

  • Stephen – CA – July 05, 2018
  • I switched from coffee to tea a while ago and have tried a lot of Upton's teas to substitute my morning cup of coffee and finally I've found it. This is the smoothest most flavorful Assam I've ever had. It's rich and full-bodied without any unpleasant lingering tastes.
  • My Favorite Morning, Noon, and Night Tea

  • Sandra – AR – March 08, 2018
  • I have been an Upton Tea customer for over 15 years, but have been a tea drinker for most of my adult life. One of my first experiences of switching from tea bags to loose-leaf tea was in trying Upton’s, “Tippy Orthodox GFOP Assam”. Since then, it has become my favorite tea and I enjoy a cup of this fine beverage morning, noon, and night.
