4 Tasting Notes
This is not a tea I would typically choose to buy in the supermarket. I am only trying it as I got a bag in my free Twinings sampler pack that I got in the mail.
As soon as you put the water in, it appears cloudy, and there’s a very strong ginger smell – not so much lemon. Despite the strong smell, the flavour was not as off-putting as I had anticipated it to be, although there’s an interesting aftertaste.
Like some others have said, I think this tea could be good with some honey in it if you’re feeling unwell. It’s not my type of tea though.
I had read good things about this tea online, but was put off by the high cost. Then yesterday I was lucky enough to try this tea thanks to my dad’s partner having a sample in her cupboard.
I love how the little buds unfurl right there in the cup. The flavour was very light – we used 3 buds as they recommended 2-4, but I enjoyed it. We did use boiling water though, as we don’t have a tea thermometer, but it didn’t make the flavour bitter for me.
Thinking about it, I realised 100g of these little buds will go a long way with me using 3 per cup, so I took the plunge and put in an order from T2!
I never used to be a tea drinker, and I started on green tea. Then one day I opened my mailbox to find a 6-bag sample pack of Twinings teas – this was one of them. I loved it so much that I went straight out to the supermarket to buy 2 more bags.
I often have trouble getting to sleep at night, and find this tea calms me down a lot – I noticed I feel a lot less stressed and anxious when I drink it.
I leave the bag in so I can reuse it for 2-3 more mugs of tea.
