The best Assam teas are only available for a few months of the year when their flavour is full, malty and strong. Over time these teas can become bitter and that's why we specially seal the teas used in this blend on the estates, to ensure that their best and freshest flavour is retained. Extra Fresh produces a strong, malty and smooth flavour. It's what Ringtons are good at.

My go to tea

I've been buying this for a while now and I love it. Super fresh but still strong tea, I love it and don't see myself ever changing to another tea brand. Nothing the supermarkets can do to match this.

Good quality tea if a bit unusual

This tea has a wonderful aroma, and seems to me (I'm no expert) to be fresh just as advertised. The leaves are small (not tiny/ dust) but I don't think this detracts from the quality. It has a very strong flavour (I had to reduce the amount of tea I used per mug) which I enjoy, although not the caffeine hit I associate with strong tea (I enjoy the caffeine hit but not everyone likes that). However, I find there's also an even stronger aftertaste the likes of which I've never experienced before. I hated it at first, but drinking nothing but this tea at the moment (to use up what wouldn't fit into my metal tin), it's starting to grow on me a little (particularly after reducing the amount of tea added and increasing the amount of milk). I would still say it's "not to my taste", but that doesn't tell anyone else anything. I've been drinking this tea for a few days, so I can't tell you if the aftertaste will continue to grow on me, but that's the only reason for a less than five star rating- it is genuinely good tea.
