I'd say that is exactly true, Upton is overpriced for the quality as far as greens, oolongs, whites go, but you just aren't going to find a better black tea anywhere, including Darjeeling if ya ask me. Being said, I get the TD20, Orthodox TGFOP Darjeeling blend for 5 dollars something for 125 grams. I don't buy the fancy single estate stuff, so can't comment on that. But that TD20 is the best cup I've ever had, just perfect. If you are an Earl Grey fan try the Extra Bergamot Earl Grey. I personally can't stand it, but I'm not big on Earl Grey either. Nevertheless Earl Greyheads go nuts over it and it is Upton's top seller.
