So I was wandering around London and I came across the original Twinings merchant store, from 1706! Inside they have a little bit of a museum and of course a fairly awesome store, and the tea lover in me was in heaven! Even though I don’t usually drink Twinings, I can recognize their importance in tea’s history!
Anyway, in all honesty, I bought this one because it comes in such a pretty tin, and I really like pretty tins…I wasn’t expecting to be a huge fan as I rarely am of blacks that are not super fruity or super chocolatey, but in my loose-leave deprived state I got a lot of enjoyment out of this cup! It is a mild and smooth black with a yummy malty finish. No astringency (which I can’t stand in a black), just good old yummy tea!
