This is a newer blend from Twinings that I enjoyed so much I intend to buy a box.

The clove and cardamom are fabulous. The chamomile gives a sweet, dry hay taste. The apple is like dried apple chips (not green apple candy or fake apple flavour), and that works nicely with the vanilla bean and cinnamon. The clove is incredible, though. Vanilla and fragrant clove is a stellar combination. It was so good I had to resteep it a few times just because I kept drinking the entire cup. For a bagged herbal, this exceeded my expectations.

Flavors: Apple, Cardamon, Cinnamon, Clove, Dry Grass, Hay, Lemon, Spices, Sweet, warm grass, Vanilla

Iced 3 min, 45 sec

Oh…this one sounds interesting. Will have to see if I can find it

VariaTEA

Yeah, you definitely make it sound great…alas chamomile and I are usually not friends.

Arby

I would try it anyway. I think you could drink it without liking chamomile because the spices and vanilla really hide it well. You can get the teabags individually on the twinings.co (UK) site under their pick and mix section. You have to pay a fee for shipping, but there selection is way better.

Hmm, I can usually get by on herbals that hide the chamomile in the background, and I have found Twinings relatively impressive so far for bagged tea. If I see this in my area, I’ll give it a try.

Bio

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
