From Twinings

The blend is made from China black teas. The strong earthy scent of Prince of Wales Tea comes from high grade Keemun tea from the Anhui Province. The Keemun is blended with other teas from around China such as Gunpowder, Oolong, and Lucky Dragon for a mild and complex cup.

The tea was a personal blend of Edward, Prince of Wales, later Edward VIII.

Its many variations are produced by multiple companies. Edward granted Twinings Co permission to resell his personal blend using his royal title, in 1921. Twinings of London however recently withdrew its Prince of Wales tea from the United Kingdom market (although it is still marketed abroad), as witnessed by their official regional websites.

This blend is light in color and has a smooth and mild taste, with a well-rounded character. Great in the late morning or in the afternoon, it is perfect with or without milk and can be sweetened to taste.

A nice afternoon blend, just my style. Refreshing, smokey, and not overwhelming. It could be the placebo effect, but using an infusion basket instead of the Ikea teaball yielded a more pleasant flavor.

I really like this tea. I always make it very strong and hot. it is the standard against which I compare all other POWs. Most put too much black currant in it and it smells like a cat sprayed it -eeeeouuuw

I like the mild flavor of the tea. It’s forgiving if you brew it too long, but flavorful and not overpowering.
