From the robust to high-register flavor notes...

Chocolaty AND citrusy! I am a Vithanakande addict and found this tea hit many similar receptors.

Minority view
Mike – CA – December 18, 2019

The aroma and flavor of this tea are very good, but I have to agree with Howard that the silty cup is offputting.

Great way to start the day.
Stephen – CA – September 15, 2019

I've tried other breakfast teas from Upton, but South Street Breakfast Blend is still my favorite way to start the day. It is rich in flavor yet has a very smooth mouth feel. For a consistent experience always carefully measure the amount and temperature of the water, as well as the brew time. It's a somewhat but not totally forgiving blend.

Smooth, Flavorful Tea
Michelle – ME – August 05, 2019

I am so glad I tried this tea. It is at once smooth and robust, as started and there are so many flavors for me: cocoa, caramel...I don’t know what else, but it works. It is a regular for me.

Fragmented, bits, and powder.
Howard – WA – July 16, 2019

The color and taste were quite good. Great strength to start the day. The problem is, the leaves were so fragmented that they were mostly dust and powder. These tea "particles" escaped even the smallest holed strainer i have. The filled cup looked more like a brown "snow globe".

Susan – VA – June 20, 2019

With medium depth and some brightness. This is a somewhat elegant tea. Quite versatile, though I especially enjoyed it in the afternoon.

One of my favorite breakfast blends!
Alice – CA – May 02, 2019

This has become one of my favorite breakfast blends along with Mincing Lane. It is certainly rich and complex, just up to the edge of over-steeped at 4 minutes. Dense with flavor but well ballanced. I do add a splash of milk.

Definitely an eye opener
Rebecca – MI – April 07, 2019

I bought this tea because I've loved the teas from Colombia I've tried. This is a strong cup of tea - the boldness surprised me a bit on the first pot. I scaled back on the amount on my second pot and it was perfect. I will purchase this again.

nice tea - smooth
Mary-Pat – MA – April 04, 2019

I wasn't what to expect. "Robust" and "eye-opening" to me can sometimes mean "TANNINS!", of which I am not a fan. Not so here: a smooth lovely cup and luxurious with milk.

So Smooth and Flavorful
Michelle – ME – March 03, 2019

I tried this tea on a whim. Tea from Columbia paired with tea from India? It is amazingly smooth, bold, and rich tasting. A nice caramel-like flavor with a splash of milk and a little sugar.

A wake-me-up tea
Martin – CO – February 28, 2019

This is definitely a wake-me-up tea. It is plenty strong at the standard 2.5 grams per cup and 4 minutes steep time even at Denver’s altitude! This one is silky smooth and can take quite a bit of sugar. There is a hint of cocoa.
