Jacksons of Piccadilly Fair Trade Assam

Teaviews Member: Tiffany Tiffany's review:
"This tea has a very strong, rich and powerful taste analogous to espresso. They both share the similar distinguishing component of slight bitterness. Definitely serves to wake up the senses."

Jacksons of Piccadilly Green Tea with Elderflower

6.8/10  —  4 reviews
Teaviews Member: Babette Babette's review:
"It is naturally sweet, like the berries; comforting and relaxing. The flavor of the Chinese green tea is overwhelmed but it is still a pleasant brew."

Teaviews Member: Shelly Shelly's review:
"The green tea is not the best quality I’ve ever tried, but it was good in its own right, and the elderflower seemingly smoothed out the astringent bite."

Teaviews Member: Stephen Stephen's review:
"The elderflower flavor here is a mixture of flowery and fruity/citrus, and really quite unique... though the actual tea used in this blend is decidedly sub-par."

"Not half-bad for a teabag... unfortunately its been discontinued so you'll more than likely never get a chance to try for yourself."

Teaviews Member: Stephen Stephen's review:
"A slightly malty crisp black tea... reminiscent of a good oolong, this is bound to please even the most fanatical Darjeeling connoisseur."

Teaviews Member: David David's review:
