drank English Breakfast by Twinings
50 tasting notes

Twining’s loose leaf teas are beautiful basics, particularly the black teas they are so renowned for, and definitely deliver a difference in quality and freshness from their bagged counterparts. Because my tea last night was, well, piss, I have remedied my mood with a strong swig of this. Makes my morning merry, and the smell is still happily tingling my nose.

Just-boiled water, ~ 4 min., w/ a dash of Sweet Leaf & milk

I’ve never been a fan of Twinings’ bagged tea, but I had no clue they did loose leaf. Huh. I’m glad this morning went better than last night. There’s nothing worse than drinking piss. Metaphorically speaking, of course.

I’m guessing that there is a Fresh Market near you. They carry the Twinings loose leaf tea in little tins. They’re ok, I think, but they are not using the impressive whole leaf tea one can order elsewhere.

I think since I’ve been raised on Twining’s they hold a special place in my heart. And the loose leaf really is pretty good; I don’t mind not having whole leaf only because I wouldn’t want to waste it (see: slightly clumsy attribute)!

Twinings are nice economic teas to fall back on. They’re easy to find and are mediocre quality(which shames plenty of store brands). Their English Breakfast is certainly their best tea blend, imo. And they have a few loose leaf varieties that are good…provided you catch them at the peak of freshness.
