Jack – TX – April 30, 2020

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

Delicious keemun
Linda – ME – March 23, 2020

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.

Stand By Me

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
Deborah – MA – August 14, 2019

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
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
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.
