From Twinings

Pure black tea expertly blended with a subtle hint of citrus flavor and aroma of fresh succulent grass on a summer’s day.

Ceylon Tea comes from the country that today is known as Sri Lanka. Twinings Ceylon tea is made using the finest quality high grown teas from the Dimbula region in western Sri Lanka. In the 1870’s, Ceylon became a major tea producing area after the coffee crop failed. Its tea is still referred to as “Ceylon” despite the country changing its name to Sri Lanka in 1972 following independence. Ceylon is ideal to drink at any time of day and is great for ice tea too. Drink black, with a little milk and sweeten to taste.

This is one the first loose leaf teas I bought about a year ago when I started to get into loose leaf tea. (This and Earl Grey also from Twinings)
I spent last night mostly sleepless, tossing and turning to try to relieve pain from a pinched nerve in my neck.
This morning, it is not so bad, but my neck is stiff and sore.
Mainly, I am irritated, How dare my body slow me down! I have stuff to do!
But, my husband ordered me to take it easy today.
When I was thinking of what tea sounded good to me today this uncomplicated Twinings brew came to mind.
Its a pretty straight forward tea, yet it is not bitter, even if you are trying to pry your knitting away from your kitten and over brew it a bit.
So, today will be spent mainly on a heating pad, trying to relax muscles and nerves, but some knitting will get done, some pots of tea drank and some clothes folded and maybe later, even some cookies baked.
Its supposed to be chilly and snowy today, so all of those things sound perfectly acceptable to me.

Oh jeez all of those activities sound lovely on a cold snowy day! I am jealous of the snow (trade you for some rain!).. I do hope your neck gets better soon! Perhaps a hot bath?!

Sometimes you just need tea. Nothing special—just a nice, cozy unassuming mug to keep you upright and moving forward. This is exactly that. Good, stout, takes milk well. Thanks to michelle for a good cuppa on a drizzly day.

Wanna know something cool, and nostalgic? This tin, was the very first tea I ever purchased. Im 24..I bought it with my allowance when I was 11. The canister itself is vintage – the logo doesnt even look the same and I love it. I came across this looking in my tea chest to log on this site, and though omg…please tell me this isnt empty. It had maybe 3 teaspoons left. I remember how much of this I WASTED teaching myself how to brew it. lol…
It smells strong and reminds me of childhood—-in the winter time reading goosebumps at the dining room table, with my hot tea LOADED DOWN with sugar right before bed (8:30 pm…) lol. Lord..the cavities. That’s why I haz them. I dont know whether to finish it off or to auction this off on ebay when my son is getting ready to go to college lol. Ah, memories.

This was my early tea today. I haven’t had it in a long time. It is a decent cup, nothing too spectacular but not bad. I think I should have added a little more leaf and maybe a little more time, but this is definitely a milk and sugar tea for me.

I haven’t had this one in a while, and it’s better than I remember it being. The second infusion tasted almost as strong as the first!

Twinings Ceylon Orange Pekoe is a good standard generic black tea (or at least in the American sense) that likely got a lot of us started drinking tea. The loose tea variety is actually pretty good as long as one is careful not to over brew it. I normally brew blacks for 3 minutes but with this tea 2 minutes is a must as 3 will make it a bitter barely drinkable mess. At the very least a good tea to keep on hand for any guests that just want a cup of “plain normal tea” when they become overwhelmed with our selections of “fancy teas” on hand.

Nothing special, I love stronger flavours, but it’s not bad for a sunny afternoon and a good book :)

It’s been a while since I last drank a cup of this, but it holds a special place in my heart. I had tins of this stuff all over the house, and at work too. I really should make myself a cup. :)

Really wasn’t crazy about this one until I made iced tea with it. I think that is the best application for me, personally. Made this with the cold brew technique. I don’t even have to sweeten it.
