7 Tasting Notes
I have had the caffeinated version of this tea several times and liked it quite a bit. I am a big Twinings fan so I had high expectations when I bought the decaf version of their English Breakfast. I wanted black tea I could drink in the evening while studying. However, I found the tea tasted more like the paper that made up the bag than the tea. I was really disappointed. I might give it another try but right now I don’t feel inclined to buy this tea again.
I love black tea and this tea was ok in my opinion. I found it quite astringent and lacking flavor when I drank it plain, and when I added milk to knock down some of the astringency I felt like it had even less flavor. I honestly don’t think I’d buy it over something like Yorkshire Gold. It wasn’t bad but it didn’t excite me either.
