You know how, when you near the end of a tea tin or packet, there’s more than you really need for one cup, but not enough for two? Not wanting to be a wastrel, I put all of the last of my leaves in a DIY filter bag and grabbed my biggest work mug. Turned out very nicely. My first review highlighted the rye toast aspect, but this morning, maybe due to the added strength, it reminds me a little of a good keemun with apple peel as well.

Next time I can see my way clear to invest in an Upton order, this one needs to be on it.

“see my way clear” relating to tea brings up fun imagery of wading through a giant tea stash :D
