This was a gift and I love it. Normally I prefer loose tea to tea bags, but I am drinking this instead of my loose tea. Assam is one of my favorites and the hint of ginger is awesome. What a wonderful way to start the day. I had just a splash of milk and feel like I'm drinking tea and eating gingersnaps.

This tea has spoiled me for all others! Love it.

Just like Downton Abbey I love this tea! It has an overall spice flavor to it, just right for a cuppa anytime of day. Love the fact that RoT came up with the series i have purcased many for friends in Europe as presents, but so far have only tried this one. I agree I'd love them in lose leaf form. too!

I tend to prefer loose tea. This was given to me by a friend who knows I like Downton Abbey and tea, so I gave it a try. It is now on the top of my list of favorite teas. I am not a sophisticated enough taster to talk about flavor notes or subtle overtones of this or that, but I can tell you that I love this tea. Most likely because of the ginger, it is one of the few teas I can drink on an empty stomach in the morning that doesn't make me ill. When the limited edition time for this ends, if it doesn't make it into a regular collection, I will be very sad. Please relabel this as a regular, and if it gets renamed, please be very clear of the former name in marketing, so I don't miss out on it.

I went a little crazy at the Downton costume exhibit at Biltmore and bought more tea than I probably should have. But this morning I am very much enjoying the Breakfast Blend. The ginger brings this over the top; unique and with the right amount of zip to begin the day.

Too delicious to make a limited edition!

I received this tea as a gift from a friend who knew I loved Downton Abbey as much as I loved tea. The mix of black tea and ginger quickly became a favorite! The smell is outstanding. Everyone comments on how fantastic it smells when I make it at work. Please keep the tea available after the collector packaging is no longer available.

Give this tea to a friend trying to get off coffee; they will love you. It is satisfying without being bitter. The ginger makes it a digestivo tonic. As everyone else has said, Please re-label and keep this tea. This is the first Republic of Tea for which I will return.

Keep making this tea!

This tea is my all-time favorite! I've tasted many of your teas, and they're all delicious, but this is the one I drink every day. It's just a perfect blend of Assam and ginger. Love it!! Even if Lord Grantham's handsome face no longer graces the canister after Downton Abbey has had its run, please keep making this tea!!

I wasn't too fond of this at first, but after trying it with two spoons of sugar and a splash of milk as was suggested by a fellow Citizen I'm in LOVE with this blend! I hope you guys keep this around even after the licensing from the show goes away.

Amazingly ginger goodness. I love a strong black tea that isn't bitter, and Assam is it. Adding the ginger takes this over the top. Nice addition without a bunch of other spices. I even put in some candied ginger pieces-- yum. Please keep this tea and you'll have one happy citizen!

I love the show, so, naturally, I wanted some of the tea; so, I chose Grantham Breakfast Blend. Well, this was definitely a good choice. The Assam black tea with the ginger is a perfect match. The ginger gives the tea a crisp "snap" on your nose, but it is also very smooth to the palate. And, as mentioned, it is perfect with just a little milk and sugar. I recommend this blend without reservation.

I've been shopping at Republic of Tea for years and never written a review, but I'm compelled to in this case because I'm very afraid they're going to take this limited edition tea away. I really hope the Minister of Tea will consider rebranding this when the Downton promo is done and making it a regular item. This is a very simple tea but the amount of ginger is perfect - refreshing, just enough flavor and bite, without being overwhelming. It is glorious iced!

This tea is fantastic! Assam is my absolute favorite black tea and the addition of ginger has absolutely won me over. The two go remarkably well together. It's enjoyable on it's own, with sugar and with milk and sugar. The only thing that would make it better is selling it loose leaf style (I generally hate bagged tea.) and offering it in bulk. I hope you decide to do this if it's a blend of tea you produce.

This tea is AMAZING. I was traveling in Nepal and have been trying to replicate the ginger-infused tea I drank all the time there - now I don't have to. Who knew the Earl of Grantham was into ginger? This is a sturdy black tea that meets its match with a rich ginger kick. PLEASE keep this around and sell in bulk - it's become a staple for me. I've bought 5 tins and dread the day it's gone for good!

Such a good black tea! I love this with the strong ginger flavor in the morning...or really anytime. Please keep it around as I have been searching for a good ginger tea that only had black tea and ginger. I was worried this would have "accesory" flavors to enhance. But its a simple black and ginger tea. Love this!

The ginger adds a delicious zip to the Assam. It still surprises me with the first sip, but is very relaxing to drink. I only wish they would sell it in refill packs so I don't end up with a collection of empty cans.

This tea is more than just an association w/Downton Abbey. It is a stand-by-itself terrific tea. That it carries the Downton name is frosting on the cake to Downton lovers. The blenders have hit just the right amount of ginger to black tea, providing the drinker w/a very lovely & bracing cup of tea. I hope it will be part of the ROT family in the future with or w/out the Downton affiliation.
