Still clearing the shelves of the teas I've accumulated and tucked away. Here's an oldie but goodie from 2013. I think I bought it at World Market. FYI World Market has a good collection of Twinings teas, especially the seasonal ones -- Head's up for the Fall and Winter blends which should start appearing in the displays soon if not now already.
The Prince of Wales Tea was specifically created by Twinings for HRH The Prince of Wales in 1921, who later became King Edward VIII. I thought I would still give this tea a chance, since I wanted to keep the metal tin.

It brewed to a pretty reddish brown.
For a label description which reads "Light Flavor Strength" (2 leaves out of 5), it was pretty strong. That could be because I forgot to set the timer while I was going about fixing morning breakfast, but I would guesstimate it was probably 4 minutes, well within the recommended range of 3-5 minutes. It had a nice beginning bite to it, but an astringent finish. Even after adding creamer, I couldn't finish it.
