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.
