Just this morning I brewed a pot for an impromptu tea party with my sister who is ordinarily a coffee drinker. She loved it! It’s deep and malty with an unmistakeable nutty flavor that totally satisfies every single time. Twinings English Breakfast Tea is like a kind and dependable old friend that you can trust and proudly introduce to others.

I started drinking this tea when I felt that all too familiar pain in my throat and to my amazement I found that it stopped me from developing a full blown cold! Amazing. It tastes pretty good too. It’s the perfect drink for when your under the weather as it warms you right through.

One of my favorite teas. I drink it after every workout and whenever I am sick. There are a lot of other Lemon & Ginger teas, but for me, this one just works. It hits my taste buds just right.

You could do a lot worse buying tea at WalMart. Get the Twinings Classics Black Tea Variety pack, its great.
In-Depth:
Aroma
This smells like a ‘proper’ black tea to me. Very warm, inviting scent. Some malt to it, I also smelled some raisins and lemon citrus undertones. Could be just me. :S Wonderful nonetheless.
Flavour
Has some bitterness, or perhaps I just steeped it longer than I should have. I enjoy a little bitterness, but I imagine others may want to put some milk in. Sugar wouldn’t be necessary. Drink it while its still hot to enjoy it. I swear those raisins are in there.
Notes
I wouldn’t say its a relaxing tea, but who would expect “Irish Breakfast” to calm you down. Its a pleasant pick me up though, and I thoroughly enjoy it. It serves its purpose as a black tea, and serves it well.

Flavors: Lemon, Malt, Raisins

How i got it: Bought it

Experience: This tea is curious. In itself, it doesn’t have a clear flavor, because of the strength of the ginger and cinnamon added, both of which overlap tea’s taste. Nonetheless, the spiced touch is enough to enjoy the blend. Good overall.

Would i buy it again?: I’d like to try other Chai’s, but for now, i would say yes

Signs you may be Californian- when you check the weather and see its going to be 91, and you think “its going to be so cool today!”.
Ha.
I woke up six minutes before my alarm, which somehow never seems fair.
I really like this tea. Mint and black is an unexpected but tasty combination.

Come visit us in the wilds of Southwest Missouri—unusual cold spell here and we aren’t going to top 80!

Maybe it would of been better if i added milk. But its not a favourite but I wouldn’t not recommend it. Its almost as if your drinking hot orange juice toned down. It would be something more of a fall tea. Sitting outside and enjoying the breeze type teas.

I love drinking this tea in the morning to get ready for my day or in the evening to wind down. I add a little sugar and milk for a sweeter flavour. I recommend it to anyone and everyone when I have a chance. It is always fun seeing friends and family’s reaction to having this tea for the first as I only stock my cupboard with this flavoured tea.

My brother gave me a sample of this tea. I must say I did not have much faith in it until the moment I tasted it. It is easy to detect the different ingredients that make this tea what it is. The cherry on top was the the taste in my mouth after I took my first sip. A soft, gingery caress, as if the tea was inviting me to take another sip.

Kudos to Twinings for making such a great variety of teas for us to taste!

This is perfect for my office workday daily cuppa.
No fuss, no muss, tastes fine with the not-quite boiling water from the coffee maker’s “hot water” tap, doesn’t need milk or sugar. I always keep it stocked in my desk drawer.

How i got it: Bought it

Experience: This is a interesting tea. While it has a smooth and light flavor, it’s not clear and evident; i would say it goes more on the side of “nutty” and “malty”. At the other hand, its aroma is notable, and adds a special touch to the blend. Really good.

Would i buy it again?: Sure, it’s a good addition to the mix

Always delicious, always soothing. I’m getting a lot of vanilla tonight, which is different because normally the honey is more dominant.

In any event, it’s creamy and delightful. I think this is my favorite Twinings blend.

This one jumped into my grocery cart while shopping for the fourth of July. I have tried it several ways since then and I’ve settled on my favorite so far: two spoonfuls of sugar and some milk. There was already a lightness to the tea that the sugar helps bring out and the milk helps tone down the harsher element that the tea has without covering it up completely. So the additives in this case help blend the flavors of the tea together smoothly and it makes for a pleasant cup.

As compared to Twinings English Breakfast, English Afternoon is a much bolder tea. In fact, I would more likely have the afternoon tea for breakfast and the breakfast tea for afternoon!

I would recommend this tea to coffee people to help them get into tea and to tea people who are returning to tea from coffee. (like myself)

Tea bag! I was going to buy this in loose leaf but from what I’ve seen, the bagged form is actually better! So that’s what I went with and it doesn’t disappoint. Even Earl Grey haters might like this one. Someone mentioned it has the faint taste of orange froot loops haha and I’m happy to say that I can taste it too. Lovely :)

I’m mostly unmoved by this tea. For bagged tea, it’s perfectly pleasant. However, I don’t get much jasmine; it just tastes like a vaguely floral green. This is preferable to an overdone, bitter, perfumey jasmine, though, I guess. Also, this tea feels very dry on my mouth, but I don’t get bitter astringency from this tea. Overall, adequate.

Flavors: Floral

All and all, this is a very consistent tasting Earl Grey. It’s not the best, but I know what I’m getting from it, and it always delivers. It’s fairly tolerant to me screwing up the brewing too by walking away and letting it steep too long.

This isn’t my favorite Earl Grey, but it’s a bit cheaper than the others I drink, I can find it at a Mariano’s close to home, and I can re-use the tins of the loose leaf version for my other teas that don’t come in tins.

This tea is perfectly adequate given that nothing else is available. Slightly fruity and floral. Becomes astringent easily. I’ve had worse tea, but. I’ve also had better.
