Agree with other reviewers that the Assam golden tip is a shadow of its former self. Weaker, less flavorful. Unfortunately that seems to be true of many of the loose leaf teas since the change over to Mighty Leaf. And my local stores carry fewer varieties of black teas than before. The better quality Assam - Extra Fancy - for example, is never available. Actively looking for a new source for loose leaf teas.

Assam golden tip is my favorite! I buy it by the pound, and I have not found it to be any different under the Mighty Leaf brand.

It is with great sadness that I learn Peet's is out of the tea business. I've been a customer for well over 20 years and it has been my go-to source for tea. The quality of Mighty Leaf is significantly lower that what Pete's provided. Unless the quality changes, I'm afraid Peet's has lost a long and loyal customer. What a disappointment.

Mighty Leaf (horrid name) is cheap tea....nothing like Mr. Peet's justifiably priced fine tea. This is overpriced mediocrity, trading on a previous reputation. It was a point of impeccableness, pride, for Mr. Peet, scion of generations of Javanese tea and spice traders, to only sell the best tea. Now that the new company has taken over, the quality has plummeted. Don't waste your money. Bet they don't publish this.

I wrote a review here last week, but I see that it is not showing so I will write another. I enjoyed Assam Golden Tip tea for about 10 years. Unfortunately, this new version by Mighty Leaf is not at all the same. It is terribly bland and not as aromatic as the old version. BRING BACK PETE'S TEAS, PLEASE!
