49 Tasting Notes

A staple of my tea cupboard, always. I’ve always been a fan of Twinings teas, and this one is no exception – made strong enough to knock over large livestock, it’s seen me through many an early morning.

I’m a big fan of Earl Grey anyway, but with the addition of raspberry, it’s even better. The raspberry balances out the bergamot rather nicely.

I admit to accidentally setting my cup down to brew and walking away for a bit, so I’ve got NO idea how long I actually let it brew, but this tea is a pleasant surprise. I was a little worried because of how strong the rose scent was when I opened the tin, but it’s actually pleasantly subtle now that the tea has brewed. The black tea base definitely comes through, but the hint of rose over the top is actually really nice – I was a bit worried it would taste like I went out and grazed on my mom’s rose garden, but it’s just enough to give the taste, but not be overpowering.

A good basic green tea, with the side benefit of being decaf, so I can have it while I unwind before bed!

A lucky find in the kitchen cabinet – mom bought some ages ago, and I ran across it in my wanderings. I don’t normally put milk and sugar in my tea, but this one just seemed to call for it, and I’m glad I did. I know there are more quality teas/chai out there, but this is tasty enough, and it was handy. It’s nice and spicy, and the milk makes it smooth and creamy. It only needed a LITTLE sugar to make it properly sweet. A nice accompaniment to an episode of Burn Notice and a sewing project :-)

I was excited about this tea the moment I opened the tin – it smells AMAZING, and it tastes just as good! It’s just spicy enough, and the coconut is nice but not overpowering. After reading some other reviews I may have to try my next cup with a splash of milk (so fitting during Indy 500 qualifying!).

I got this as part of a little 4-tin set, each with 4 tea bags – when I took the plastic wrapping off the stack of tins, I was a little alarmed that it ALL smelled like peach. I thought it would be totally overpowering and too synthetically sweet and fruity, but thankfully it’s proving me wrong – it’s nicely peachy without being over the top, and the ginger lends a nice little bite to it.

I got a bit of this as a sample, and have been pleasantly surprised – the lemon smell is lovely, and the ginger adds just the right amount of spice.

I’m about 3/4 of the way into my cup, and definitely feeling a lot more relaxed – not quite ready to doze off, but it’s definitely doing its job. The taste… eh. I’m not a fan of chamomile, but there are enough other ingredients with it to make it tolerable.

This is a fantastically strong tea that makes a perfect accompaniment to breakfast on those mornings some “get up and go” is needed.
