drank English Breakfast by Twinings
49 tasting notes

I had this tea when a family member came to stay with us. I opened up my tea pantry and said ‘pick a tea, any kind,’ and she just asked for ‘regular tea.’ So this is what I chose. And I think that speaks a lot for this tea.

English Breakfast tea, or variants thereof, tend to be one of the most well-known basic blends throughout history. (Apart from chais, and green teas.) But you can’t go wrong with this tea, it’s a basic, black robust blend and a great medium-strength tea. I like it with milk, or black with honey. It’s a little bit malty, stews very nicely and is perhaps one of the most recognisable from the Twining’s brand.

I really like this tea, even if it’s not the most exciting or the newest blend, it never lets me down, and I’m never dissatisfied with it.

It’s the disadvantage of being a tea enthusiast. I no longer have the slightest idea about what ‘regular’ tea is. :)

Oh, yes I totally agree. I only picked this because she was from Northern Ireland so I figured a classic Twining’s choice would be my best bet. c:
