    Refreshing

    I first tasted JING’s Assam tea at a local bakery and had to find out what it was. I’m very fussy about my tea and I found JING’s tea tasty and refreshing. It is now my go-to company for an excellent cup of tea.

    Assam breakfast tea

    Had this tea in the loose variety at Boringdon Hall for an afternoon tea. Has to be the best tasting tea I have ever had. I ordered the teabags, right there and then; quite simply amazing taste and quality.

    Fabulous taste and aroma

    Bought after enjoying it so much in the Cathay Lounge at Heathrow - and it was just as good as remembered. The honey like aroma is wonderful straight from the pour and the taste won’t disappoint. Really fabulous tea.

    What a great way to start the day!

    Having tried this tea in Raffles hotel and loved it, it seemed indulgent to have them at home however just bought 100tea bags and most definitely will be replacing them when used up! I doubted the Jing recommendation of being able to reuse the teabag but I tried it for my daily morning 2 cuppas and it did not negatively impact the flavour. Worth every penny!

    In a different league!

    JING's loose leaf teas are supreme but, for convenience and everyday use, these Assam English Breakfast teabags are superb and in a different league, quality-wise, to other big-name brands. Just terrific.

    Fine teas are like fine wines!

    Teas are like wines, they are an acquired taste and opinions are always split. I came across Jing breakfast tea by accident in a upmarket London hotel and have been converted ever since. I am often unfaithful in my quest to try something new but I’m always drawn back to this blend of tea that encapsulates what is, a classic English breakfast tea.

    Yes please

    I have to admit choosing these as an alternative as my favourite was out of stock for a while. What a joy!
    Beautiful refreshing tea with no hint of bitterness or tang. I don’t enjoy strong tea so don’t stick to the suggested infusion time, they re-infuse perfectly - these are going to definitely be repeated.
    I did read the blurb and chose because of the second flush tea used, fabulous flavour..
    Tea bags suit our lifestyle so am relieved that Jings have introduced these to the range..

    I challenge you to find a better tea!

    I was first introduced to this tea in a renowned 5*London hotel and it was love at first taste. Since then I have ordered many Assam teas but have yet to find one that is as satisfying as Jing’s. To refer to it as a breakfast tea is a disservice as this is most definitely to be enjoyed all day long. I mainly drink it black but occasionally I will add a 1/2 teaspoon (that’s not a typho) if I want to mellow it out. If you like milky tea then you’ll ruin it in my opinion. This is the king of teas’s, long live the king!

    Most delicious English Breakfast tea ever

    I ordered from the USA and it arrived quickly, I was happy with the turn around. I was introduced to this tea from a friend and decided to spoil myself with my own box. There’s nothing like this available in the states. It’s simply divine.

    I first tasted the most beautiful English breakfast tea at Sexyfish in Mayfair and had to ask what the tea because it was that good and it was JING. I had to buy some for myself as the taste is fabulous, much better than any other breakfast tea I’ve tasted. Really distinctive yummy taste! Will buy again and again!

    English breakfast - First order

    I first tasted this tea at the Four Seasons Hotel in canary Wharf and was very impressed, with the strong but not bitter flavour, no furry after taste. I made the order easily on the website and delivery for very quick. The tea bags that I received tasted every bit as good as the leaf tea originally sampled. Would recommend Jing.

    Jing Breakfast Tea

    The tea is excellent and I have now been drinking it for nearly a year after being introduced to it at a hotel in Lytham. It is expensive but worth the money apart from the delivery charge which is a bit too much. Prior to this I seldom drank tea and mostly drank coffee. I try to buy it when there is the offer of free delivery
