Props to Twinings for recommending this be brewed no more than 2 minutes and enjoyed without milk.

My Twinings order arrived yesterday! I bought individual teabags (pick and mix) of about 20 flavours that I can’t get in North America. Only one bag of each. I’m trying as many as I can today so I don’t have to add them to my cupboard/spreadsheet, because that is a hassle for 1 teabag.

I am not normallyi nto green teas and I don’t like apple flavoured candy/soaps, but I actually love this tea. I would consider buying more of it, especially if they had a decaf green option. The apple flavour is not acidic or artificial, the caramel flavour is bright and reminds me of brown sugar and the thin caramel sauce that my grandmother would make for us to put on icecream. The apple is actually paired very well with the green base, the green tea isn’t bitter or unpleasant at all.

Other tea companies take note: you can use apple in a blend without making it sour or artificial.

Flavors: Brown Sugar, Caramel, Fruity, Green, Green Apple

I am a biochem major hoping for a career in research genetics and evolutionary biology. I love science fiction and spend too much of my time reading comic books. I’m a passionate keeper of spiders, cacti, and exotic plants. I eat a vegan, plant-based diet for moral and environmental reasons (I mention this only because it is relevant to which flavoured teas I drink).

I drink mostly flavoured and low caffeine teas/tisanes, but I will try anything twice. As far as pure teas go, I gravitate towards whites, yellows, and jade oolongs. I’m always open for trades and sample sales/exchanges. Message me any time :)

My cupboard is mostly up to date. For a more comprehensive list, see my stash spreadsheet here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-HjWKR3um-xEnj6HC9vMvKXOAyj_bpW5u_2ixEC20-k/edit?usp=sharing
