Best of the breakfast teas samples I tried
SK – RI – February 17, 2020

I am not a tea connoisseur, thou after trip to UK and my F&Mason tea ran out, breakfast tea I was finding locally in US was disappointing. Tried 10 or so samples of breakfast style teas from Upton and this was my favorite.

a great morning brew
Martin – CA – February 01, 2020

This is a very flavorful breakfast blend. Full-bodied, quite malty and with a smooth finish. Although I take it with a modest amount of milk, I've tried it black, and it is not harsh in the least (at least brewed for 3 min.).

Perfect with milk and sweetener

Tried it in the Introduction to Fine Teas sampler. Best cup of Assam I've had. It holds up very well to milk and sugar. I'm ordering more.

BP51 East Frisian Blend
Peter – NH – January 23, 2019

This is by far my favorite. It has a rich, earthy flavor without any trace of bitterness. I was never into tea and always an afternoon coffee drinker until tried this. I'm hooked. Thanks

A lighter, sunnier treat
Jorge – NY – January 15, 2019

The leaves themselves have a muted look to them. Not as dark as the Assams I usually favor. When brewed, the tea has the color of a medium grade maple syrup, amber. Delicate taste. Sunny start then full, biscuity finish. Good for relaxed Spring mornings. Also lovely iced.

Best breakfast tea!

I originally tried this in Introduction to Fine Tea sampler. I ended up buying a bag. Essential it’s a breakfast tea. My stomach is sensitive to the tannins in tea (I usually need lots of sweetener—and in rare cases milk), I’m able to drink this with just a small amount of sweetener. I will definitely be buying this again!

Outstanding East Frisian tea, the real thing
Suzanne – PA – September 15, 2018

I bought East Frisian tea from a well known tea company for years. Loved it. They changed the blend and it was awful and unrecognizable. I finally found the real thing and I thank Upton tea. Your East Frisian tea is wonderful. A full bodied, malty, mellow cup of tea that is delicious and perfect for mornings and afternoon pick me ups. Perfect!

The real deal!
Angela – MA – July 08, 2018

I am from East Frisia in Germany and this tea is as good as my favorite home brand. It’s the real deal! Thank you for making me feel at home!

Always come back to this.
Wendy – CA – May 25, 2018

With all the teas available at Upton I used to sample different black teas, but I always came back to East Frisian BOP for my every morning tea. I love it with milk. I sometimes add a cinnamon stick to the pot. I even enjoy the leftovers slightly diluted and iced in the summer.

Bought a 125g bag by mistake - so glad I did!
Alesia – CA – March 03, 2018

LOVE LOVE LOVE this tea! Meant to purchase the sample size, since I've never tried it before. So glad I accidentally clicked on the bigger size. This tea is malty, strong, sooooo yummy with sweetener and milk. I have a new favorite tea. Almost didn't write a review, because I don't want to compete with other customers over this delicious tea.

Found it at Last
Bruce – CO – January 31, 2018

I traveled in Switzerland for a number of years. The hotels sold a wonderful tea I couldn't forget. It took me two years, but I discovered it to be this tea sold by Upton. I later found it at a local shop, but it was not even close in flavor. I love this tea and have ordered it many times. Milk and sweetener is best. My favorite!
