Prince of Wales Tea Entering the World of Chinese Tea

This unique beverage was named after the Prince of Wales, later King Edward VIII, as it was his personal blend. In 1921, Prince Edward gave permission to Twinings Company to sell this tea using his royal title and that is how Prince of Wales tea reached the world as we know it today.

What lies behind a tea that deserves such royal honours? First of all this is not just one type of tea, in fact, the Prince of Wales blend has at least three different types of tea in it that come together to create a peculiar light-coloured liquor for your enjoyment.

Let s not keep you waiting any longer and reveal which teas are used to make Prince of Wales Tea.

The main base of this tea blend is Keemun tea, one of the most famous Chinese black teas, which brings with its black tea leaves an earthy scent and a unique essential oil named myrcenal to this mixture.

Then we travel to the world of Chinese green tea where we have the pleasure to introduce you to Gunpowder Tea and Lucky Dragon tea, a fine variety of Hyson tea.

Both teas are fantastic and add to this blend the well known green tea health benefits. Gunpowder tea stands out for resembling gunpowder grains and for its nutty taste. You will feel this nuttiness surfacing in your cup of tea. On the other hand, Lucky Dragon will bring its smoothness and freshness to this full bodied tea.

To top off this peculiar tea blend an Oolong tea is added, an extraordinary type of tea that stands out for undergoing one the most complex processing methods.

When blended together, each tea leaves its own mark and adds more character to your tea. Each will offer you its own powerful benefits of tea that flow inside you, eager to protect you and your loved ones.

In the end, Prince of Wales tea is a mixture of fragrances, flavours and colours that get together to create an amazing tea. This is a world worth knowing and the health benefits are tremendous!
