Mmm. After a really disappointing string of Bigelow teas that made me very, very sad, it’s nice to try something good from Twinings! This was the perfect cup to start off my morning. When I opened the little packet, the smell made me smile. It’s a really perky blend of citrus, and it smelled absolutely delicious!
The tea brews up fairly dark, and I have to say, the taste is superior to Twinings’ regular Earl Grey. It’s still got a floral edge to it, but the citrus flavors are more pronounced and a bit more complex. The combination is the perfect blend of soothing and eye-opening. It doesn’t jolt you awake; it coaxes you.
This is the last of the blends in my Twinings variety pack to taste, and I must say, I pretty much enjoyed every flavor in here. I’m looking forward to finishing up the rest of the bags. If loose leaf tea tastes a lot better than this, then I can’t wait!
