A good, bold black tea. Reminiscent of Earl Grey in its citric hint, which may vary with the brewing time. A tasty cup anytime of day.

Delicious- strong, black and rough as a pure Ceylon should be. Again – no milk, no sugar, no sweeteners of any kind. Enjoy the taste!
A little faint for a black tea. The smell of cinnamon and raisins is there, but in all, it generates a kind of sweet smelling brew that disguises the taste of the actual tea. Those who like iced tea might enjoy this one better.
A blend of Keemun and Ceylon…so I´m gessing, is this the new version of Twining´s Traditional Afternoon?
For some rerason Im not finding the Traditional Afternoon to add a tasting note…maybe they´re not carrying it any more?
Anyway, would love to try this one. A blend of black by Twinings can´t be bad :-)
A very good cup! Mild for a black blend, with a distinctive hint of flowers and citric flavour. I would recommend trying it without sweeteners of any kind or milk, to appreciate its full taste, colour and aroma.
A good tea – but for a spiced blend, I expected a bit more of a kick. Spices were there – yes – but I expected a bit more presence and contrast between spices and tea. Good – but try adding one or two cloves to the cup for additional flavour.
A delicious blend of Darjeeling and Assam – if I dare risk, more of the second than the first one. Being a blend of black teas, it is of mild strength and flavour. Another of Harrod´s delights. Buy, enjoy and share wherever available…it´s just so impossible to find in some locations!
A good blend- but if you cherish a strong, black, dark and astringent cup an excellent Ceylon should be, don´t expect to be marveled.
An excellent wake-me-up tea. A flavourful reddish-dark brew, which may seem a little bitter for some palates but still, I prefer it with nothing added. Very similar in strenght to the Melroses´of Scotland Scottish Breakfast blend. A sharp, bold taste I enjoy in the mornings and at any time of the day.
A full bodied tea, probably one of the strongest black blends I know. I do not find it especially astringent or bitter – but then again, I cherish astringent, bold and somewhat bitter tastes.
Probably not the most magnificent variety available but still, one that is realtively easy to find and rather handy when needed.
OK – all thumbs up for my number one favourite :-) Dry, strong and astringent, the kind of cup you can´t put down. I would recommend taking it without milk or sweeteners of any kind to appreciate its full flavour. The perfect Irish Breakfast blend, with just the needed malty taste.
I horribly miss the bagged version of this tea…the lose variety is almost just as good but I confess I had become an addict to the bagged.
An absolute pleasure…thank you again, Twining´s!
This is one of the most flavourful Irish Breakfast varieties I have tried. With a rich black-golden color and a characteristic, yet very soft amber taste, it is a delight for any time of the day. It is only avaiable as lose tea as this company does not carry bagged tea. It is not as astringent as other Irish Breakfast varieties I know. I totally love it :-)
