  • Earthy, slightly sweet, no additives needed

  • I often like a strong black tea to which I add some milk and honey. This is a lovely later day alternative. It's med-strong, not at all bitter (assuming lower tannins), with some earthy, fruity sweetness. Would buy again.
  • Awesome.

  • Bold, nuanced profile at a super reasonable price. Sweet, a touch smoky, notes of chocolate, cinnamon and walnut. Lots to explore here.
  • Delicious keemun

  • I’ve been a keemun drinker for decades and have tried them all, including every keemun Upton offers. In my opinion, this one really stands out as a classic keemun, with a slightly smoky under note and a tiny hint of cocoa. It’s the best I’ve ever tasted and excellent value. You can’t go wrong with this one.

  • Been my dependable breakfast tea for years. Maybe decades. (Long time Upton customer.) Best price-quality ratio among the traditional style Keemuns - Hao-Yas, etc. Also very consistent.
  • My Favorite

  • I've been drinking this tea since I first began ordering from Upton Tea 26 years ago. My husband and I brew a pot every morning and really like the subtle smoky flavor. I drink my tea with milk and this Keemun stands up to that well. We've tried others but keep coming back to this one. Highly recommended.
  • My go-to everyday tea
  • 5 star rating
  • Susan – OR – June 03, 2019
  • I drink my tea strong, without anything at all in it. I not only love the taste of this extremely drinkable tea, but also the fact that it doesn't taste bitter when it's steeped for the 5 1/2 minutes I always give it.
  • Wine dark flavor
  • 5 star rating
  • Anna – MI – December 16, 2018
  • Love this tea. Been drinking it for 35+ years. Learned from a botanist that I really am hooked on the winey flavor component. This particular keemun has a flavonoid that gives it the subtle complexity that attracted me.
