From Great British Tea Store

A tea fit for the first in line to the thrown. This blend has been created using both black and green teas. The dominant black tea is an Indian Assam, it is mixed with a Gunpowder green tea and a Lucky Dragon Hyson green tea. Our Prince of Wales is very flavourful and you will also notice an added hint of blackcurrant, one of Great Britain’s favourite berries. Cornflower and Safflower petals have been added for a bit of colour.

Why do tea companies insist on creating these black/green tea blends? I have yet to try one that actually tastes good and this is no exception. I steeped it at a lower temperature than the packaging suggested and kept the steep time short, but I still found Prince of Wales to b e quite bitter and astringent. It also has a bit of smokiness to it…I’m guessing that’s from the gunpowder green? All in all, a strange and rather unpleasant blend.

This was my very last sample from the giant Great British Tea Store sampler pack I ordered this fall. It has taken me months to get through them all, but I’m glad I purchased it. I enjoyed at least half of the samples I tried and all the ones I didn’t like have helped me to more clearly define my preferences when it comes to tea. And there were a few truly outstanding blends that I tried along the way…particularly their wonderful Irish Breakfast. I definitely see myself ordering from this company again…just not this particular tea!

Try Chocolate Covered Strawberry from Discover Teas. It is a black/green tea blend and is delicious.

Mmm, that does sound good! Glad to hear that someone managed to pull this blend off successfully, because my experiences so far have not been amazing.

I quite like Angel’s Dream from Metropolitan Tea Co, which is a black green blend.

Thanks for the suggestion! I do NOT need more tea right now, but it’s good to hear that there are enjoyable black/green blends out there.

Pretty good tea but not as good as the Irish Cream. This tea has a more astringent taste to it that I can’t get out of my mouth even after adding milk to it. There’s a very pleasant taste to it, but I can’t pinpoint what it is exactly. I want to say it’s something citrusy but I just can’t put my finger on it.
