It has been far too hot around here to drink any hot tea until now. Sad but true and I haven’t had time to make anything iced either. Shame on me! Today is very cool and we’ve also had rain off and on since 3am. Perfect tea weather in my book! So I figured I’d dig into some of the Upton samples I purchased a month back. This was the first one out of the box.

I love that there is that touch of malt to the tea and I’m getting a slight hint of something darker too. There is also a fruit finish on the end that makes this a lovely cup for afternoon tea taking. Good to be back!

I am a tea lover, a wife, mom of one, and servant to three cats (all rescues). I love to read and write. I’m also a BIG fan of the following shows: BBC Sherlock, Doctor Who, Law and Order, Supernatural, Bones, and more – bless Netflix.

I started drinking and enjoying tea when I was 7 (sure it was bagged Lipton, but it got me started) with my grandmother. As I said it was Lipton with milk and sugar (and peanut butter and jelly on toast) and my love just grew from there. I was brought to loose leaf through a trip to Teavana. But my taste has expanded to many different types of tea since then. I review teas at the link provided, check it out!
