There are several entries of this tea, as well Twinings and Twinings of London are same company I assume, so this will be hard to set it right, but I am sure there are people who will do that with pleasure.
Tea itself is postcrossing THANK YOU envelope 3/6.
Experience the bold, rich taste of this hearty tea
And again it is pretty much right. They suggest 4 minutes at least for steeping, I was okay with only 3 mins.
Tea was okay. Nothing spectacular but better than previous teas. Nice bold taste, quite tannic, rich and hints of malts. It was bit biting, spicy when colder too, certainly not that much one-dimensional as previous. I would not drink it on daily basis, but when I crave for strong black tea (hangover cure), it could work pretty well I assume.
I just hope that US and UK version do not differ too much.
Flavors: Biting, Malt, Spicy, Tannic
I have received this tea from postcrossing as thank you envelope from Florida, USA.
Ehhm, drank yesterday, but we had internet outage unfortunately, so I could not write anything down. Anyway, wasn’t much impressed.
First of all, there is almost no base (rooibos) in taste. I expected a tiny bit at least. Secondly, it is very, very aromatic of orange and cinnamon sweetness. And somehow herbal, my father picked up lavender, which is bit strange but okay. Thirdly, taste is full and round; but somehow “cinnamon spice” is overpowering, somehow unpleasant and not somthing I call enjoyable. It was just too strong and I wasn’t noticing oranges at all.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Herbs, Sweet
Twinings English Breakfast Tea is a simple, classic, and inexpensive tea, and has everything that is needed. The tea can be served in numerous ways. My personal favorite among the possible variations is to use the tea as a base for a beautiful jar of sweetened fruit tea.
Received from tea bag exchange last November. Since then it was in huge bags section.
I don’t really enjoyed it. It was easydrinking but meh. Red fruits in Italy probably mean big load of hibiscus and strawberry and raspberry flavours. They claim it is natural, but it is pretty artificial.
Natural flavour is an extremely vague term that really doesn’t tell us much about what’s actually in the product we’re eating (from Google search and quickly found)
Pretty much I understand it is that. Nothing and pretty artificial probably. There are no red fruits in ingredients.
And taste… come on Twinings, you can do better! Even in fruit tea category. Bleh, meh, only tartness from hibiscus and… little bit of strawberries. So little that maybe I just thought it’s there because of picture on tea bag.
Flavors: Hibiscus, Tart
I am always looking for a bagged tea to add to my travel stash, it’s just so much easier to brew on the go with a bag. And I try not to sacrifice taste too much. This Chai is very heavy on the clove with a second note of cardamon. I prefer more cinnamon or ginger in my chai, this one just seems a bit harsh and heavy to me. I do like that it is very forgiving, I can throw it in my travel mug and not worry about it getting bitter. I’m not sure that makes up for the overpowering clove, but maybe I should add another flavor teabag to make it more interesting.
Flavors: Cardamon, Clove
