prince of wales
by twinings (4 reviews)
This tea was specifically created by Twinings for HRH The Prince of Wales in 1921, who later became King Edward VIII. This special blend combines teas carefully selected from the Jiangxi, Anhui and Yunnan provinces in China where their high altitude and mountain mists help protect the tea bush from excessive sunlight, forming conditions ideal for tea leaf and bud development. Joined together with tea from the Hunan province, these teas create an aromatic blend that is brownish-red in color and has a light, mild taste and slightly woody characteristic. Perfect for a cool autumn day or a cold winter night, this smooth, mellow tea will leave you feeling renewed
I like this tea. It holds good flavour and isn't bitter.
As a history buff, it's good to read up of the history of this blend. If anyone if worried about the strength of this blend, I thought it was stronger than basic Earl Grey. It's not one of my favorites, but I'll drink it if someone offered it.
