I picked this up on my vacation last week. First I want to say I love Twinings tea, always have and no doubt always will. Twinings got me started as a tea person and while I have branched out to many different types of tea, this company holds a special place for me.
I am an undisputed fan of black teas. Especially Assam. Pairing the Assam with Yunnan takes the malty edge off, and makes for a more refined and regal cup of tea. Remaining true to English tea heritage, the Assam is present, just tempered a bit in honor of the Queen. It steeps up the color of coffee and lingers long on the tongue post sip. A hint of maltiness at first descends to a mellow, easy Yunnan finish. My only regret is that I bought but one tin in blue. Should have purchased the pink and green as well.
Long live the Queen!
