A rich, full-bodied black tea provides a premium base for this naturally flavored selection. Refreshing notes of citrus fruit are prominent in both the aroma and the dark amber cup. Tiny juniper berries lend a crisp counterpoint to the lingering sweetness. Great hot or iced.

  • Like peeling a grapefruit in the desert in a pinyon-juniper woodland. I first tried this tea hot with honey and soy milk and it was delicious. But after reading the other reviews I made a batch of old brewed iced tea and that was even better.

  • When you open the bag you are greeted by the crisp, sweet fragrance of a of mountain meadow. Juniper berries give this tea a delightful, unexpected scent and flavor. I love this as ice tea. I add a half cup to a gallon of water and refrigerator it overnight. Then I strain it and discard the leaves. The tea is cool, smooth And delicious.

  • This is a fragrant cup of tea with a hearty black tea base softened by fruit and a little zing from the juniper berries. I was a fan of the teas from an Upstate New York tea importer that shall be nameless. The quality of their teas have declined. So glad to find Upton and their teas. The resealable bags are better than tins.
  • Heavenly!

  • The grapefruit smell billowed out even as I cut into the seal on the pouch. It is heavily present when you steep up the cup too. I bet this would be good with a touch of rock sugar. (I NEVER EVER sweeten my tea, but...) I can also see why people use this for iced tea. A worthy counterpoint to the St. Isaac's!
