I don’t believe I could call myself a fan of Twinings. I mean, tea is tea and I’ll drink it, and unfortunately a lot of restaurants serve this brand. To me, it tastes bland and boring.

I don’t dislike green tea, but it’s not my favorite. I can appreciate a good cup when I’m invited or when I receive one as a gift, but I rarely invest myself. However, there are times when I want that clean, distinct grassiness, straight in warm water without no additives.
Today I had something slightly greasy for dinner, and wanted a cup of green tea to cleanse it out. Usually I go for Puerh or Oolong, but I didn’t have any on my cupboard. Instead I tried this complimentary tea bag I just got from my last Twinings order, and it does its job. Steeped for a minute and a half, light and just right for my taste.
I’m divided between feeling if I should be generous or critical with this tea. When it comes to green teas this is nothing to brag about or promote as an excellent example of a really good one, neither is it a really bad tea that needs lots of sugar to be considered drinkable. This one is more of a generic green tea without any special character to it, which depending upon one’s perspective may or may not be a good thing.
I keep a box of Twinnings green tea at work, and drink it iced, unsweetened, every day with lunch. Because it doesn’t have a very strong flavor, I can pour 16oz over a 24oz cup of ice, and and sip on that all afternoon, right down to the last bits of melted ice. I don’t care for it hot; it’s a bit acidic.
