This was the best I could find at the suburban grocery store, and indeed, it is a teabag. In spite of that I am enjoying it. Maybe because I just finished reading “My Man Jeeves” by P.G. Wodehouse, I can imagine Jeeves giving Wooster a cup of tea like this in bed along with a morning cigarette.

It is supposedly a blend of chinese black tea, I believe I can taste some yunnan in here along with something else. A keemun, perhaps? But it is not smoky, just very smooth and rich, nice and mild. I could imagine buying this in the loose leaf tin and keeping it around the house for a day when I just want to wake up and have a nice black tea of goodness. It is very delicious with some soymilk. Good for you, Twinings, you’ve managed to turn a suburban teabag into something quite drinkable… :)

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
