    Nice enough but not my favourite

    I love Jing... I mean I absolutely love Jing. I have developed a slightly worrying tea habit over the past few years and was excited to try this tea.

    Maybe my expectations were set too high but this is the first tea from Jing that I have regretted buying... Maybe the batch I had wasn't the usual standard, but for me it lacks depth of flavour when compared to other breakfast Assam teas.

    That said, I have only sampled one batch of this tea and it is perfectly drinkable.

    In summary, this one isn't for me (for the price I'd rather drink another brand of Assam) but Jing remain by far my favourite company for quality teas and teaware.

    ==============================

    Hello Simon,

    Thank you for your feedback about our Assam Breakfast tea. We're sorry to hear that it didn't meet your expectations in terms of depth of flavour and that it wasn't to your liking. However, we're glad to hear that you enjoy our other teas and that we remain your favourite company for quality teas and teaware.

    We take great pride in sourcing the best teas from around the world, and we're constantly striving to achieve a balance of strength, colour, and depth of flavour that represents the best of each year's crop from each origin. Our goal is to produce breakfast teas that are the best in their class, and we're sorry that this particular batch didn't meet that standard for you.

    We appreciate your feedback, and we will take it into consideration as we continue to source and blend our teas. We hope that you'll give our Assam Breakfast tea another chance in the future and that you'll find it to your liking.

    Thank you again for your support of Jing, and we look forward to continuing to provide you with the highest quality teas and teaware.

    Full of flavour - a real treat.

    Wonderfully strong flavour even when you refresh the teapot with more boiling water.

    Started with selection box

    After sampling 3 different teas moved on to buying single loose teas. I have enjoyed every cup from delicate green tea to robust breakfast teas, and some in between!
