drank French Vanilla Chai by Twinings
31 tasting notes

The smell is there you really get your hopes up and I actually liked this for awhile until I began tasting other chai teas and this one really doesn’t compare. It also tastes really mild and I find you don’t taste the flavor until you added milk and sugar where with a really good chai you don’t need too.

Flavors: Cardamon, Nutmeg, Vanilla

This is perfect for when you have a sore throat and you’re not feeling very well. To be quite honest with you yes its a bagged but it really does the trick. One box will last you awhile.

Flavors: Ginger, Lemon

Help I am stuck with all this awful tea! Now I like Camomile, I love honey and Vanilla so I naturally thought that I was going to love this tea. WRONG too many flavors competing that my tea tastes like mothballs. Yuck!

This tea is perfect for when I am looking for that Mandarin/Orange flavor! Just perfect

This one caught my attention immediately in the grocery store last night. Vanilla-flavored mint? Sign me up!

It radiates a weird, rubbery smell while brewing, kind of like the way new Converse shoes smell, with a dash of minty toothpaste thrown in.

I tried not to let that initial smell turn me off, though, and I was glad for it— The experience of drinking this tea is amazing! The vanilla gives it a thick, creamy mouthfeel, like melted frozen yogurt. I get notes of custard, vanilla pudding, sweet mint, and it finishes with a slight cooling sensation on the palate, characteristic of peppermint.

You can’t really oversteep it, either, because it’s so mild. 7/10, would recommend to anyone who doesn’t let the initial smell of a tea deter them!

Flavors: Creamy, Custard, Mint, Peppermint, Sweet, Vanilla

drank Lapsang Souchong by Twinings
6 tasting notes

Got to say that I am a Islay Whisky fan and I love my smoked Bamberg beers. So I was expecting to like this. In fact this little box of tea on my local Tesco supermarket shelf has got be interested in tea other than Yorkshire Tea. So begins my newbie trip after rating a few random boxes in my cupboard that have built up over the past few months with no consideration.

On opening the box I got the aroma of Laphroiag or Highland Park, just a hint of it and no where near a Lagavulin. After brewing it, the aroma wilted a little to a moderate smokiness. The tea is Amber in colour. The taste is cigar, leather jockstrap and some wood and earth. Good stuff. Certainly an experience for someone like me.

drank Lady Grey by Twinings
6 tasting notes

While living in Japan, this was my daily mid-afternoon tea. This tea and a piece of chocolate was a heavenly break. I only wish I could purchase the loose leaf tea to refill my tin like I was able to back in Japan rather than having to buy a new tin each time.

I bought a bag of these on the strength of all the good reviews I read about them at least a year ago, and then never got around to drinking them. At least that’s been remedied now – I’ve been drinking this one pretty steadily since November, mostly in my Timolino at events. Hence, I’ve never logged it either. I’m in the office today, though, and drinking this one. It’s really good. Hazelnut is the main initial flavour, followed by a dark-ish chocolate. It reminds me a lot of nutella, which is probably the intention. There’s not a whole lot else going on with this one, except a light maltiness from the base tea. It stands up to milk well, if you give it a decent brew time (I went for 4 minutes), but it’s best to drink it hot because it seems to get bitter as it cools…

I like this one. It’s probably my favourite Twinings tea.

drank Rose Garden by Twinings
2 tasting notes

As I am an addicted tea lover of very different kinds, brands and blends, I must admit that my preference goes to the smoky tasting teas of Twinings which appear suddenly…and if you like it or not the best ones dissappear immediately as they appeared…unannounced!!
Such as the predessesor of this one here which was a top rating one , namely Rose Pouchong (tea bags of Twinings)
I hate such a policy of one of the oldest Tea producers of the world (if not the oldest?)

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 30 sec 3 OZ / 100 ML
Teasmoker

As I live abroad (as British people tend to say) it is hard to get the ‘golden labeled’ Twining products and even the limited versions of Twinings in Belgium (therefore you need to shop in the Stonemanor shops around Brussels!!

drank Decaffeinated Earl Grey by Twinings
1092 tasting notes

Very solid Earl Grey, especially considering it is a grocery store bagged tea, and decafs are thought to be weaker/disflavoured by some.

Although I prefer my plain Earl Grey as a latte and a lump of sugar, this is decent on its own. Strong bergamot, very full bodied black base. Not a black tea I like, but pretty standard for an Earl Grey; I knew what I was getting into. I do find the base a bit tannic and on the bitter side, but I also steeped in near boiling water (rather than my standard 86 degrees C). The bergamot comes on too strongly for me taste, which makes it taste a bit medicinal, sort of like that lemon cough drop taste.

Flavors: Bergamot, Citrus, Citrus Zest, Citrusy, Fruity, Lemon, Medicinal, Tannic, Tannin, Tea

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 3 min, 0 sec 15 OZ / 450 ML

This is a drinkable basic black tea, but I prefer Bigelow American Breakfast. I’ll be saving this tin for blending.

One of the teas I drank at The Start Bed and Breakfast in Hay-on-Wye, Wales. Wonderful, fragrant strawberry aroma. I enjoy the initial taste of this tea, although once it starts to cool or steep for too long, it is too tart for my taste.

Flavors: Strawberry, Tangy, Tart
