11 Tasting Notes
This is a great quality tea and looks beautiful. The leaves are rolled up into tight little balls, and unfurl to deliver a liquor of good strength and freshness. I personally don’t like to let it steep for too long or it becomes a tad bitter. The people in the Taylors shops are always so lovely too!
I used to drink this infusion a lot, but after drinking more loose leaf, this one tastes less fresh in comparison. It also tastes slightly artificial… I wonder whether the added flavourings were natural. Having said that, in order to get any flavour into a fruit tea in a tea bag variety, I guess you have to add extra flavourings. I prefer my drinks to be a bit more natural tasting, but then again I have lots of friends who don’t drink infusions that much but like this one because of the stronger taste and deep red colour. I like Twinings tea a lot, but I’ll gladly give this one to my friends.
