Not at good as the gunpowder green tea from iHOT. More astringency, smaller pieces.

Flavors: Astringent

Not sure if you mean broken pieces or smaller gun powder tea, which is a sign of quality tea. I have 3 empty tins of this in my cupboard. (I think Walmart ran out of it)

I would say broken pieces more so, and the tea from iHOT had more “pellets” where tuning’ tea looks more unraveled.

Either way, it’s not a bad tea: I just personally prefer the stuff from iHOT more.

drank Earl Grey Lavender by Twinings
577 tasting notes

Quite liked this one! Drank it black. The lavender and bergamot play well together and give it a flowery/ perfumey flavor, although not cloyingly so. A little bit of vanilla would have made this just about perfect. The base is a typical Twinings smooth, non-astringent, non-aggressive Chinese black tea. They make such good stuff.

I miss being able to find Stash’s Breakfast in Paris at the grocery store, but this is a perfectly acceptable substitute. Simultaneously relaxing and bracing.

Flavors: Citrus, Flowers, Fruity, Lavender, Perfume

Licorice gives to much of a sugary sweetness in the back of the throat. A bit too tart.

Was simply wonderful if you like Earl Grey but want some with less Bergamot bite.
Though I don’t like Earl Grey to begin with so I tried this instead, has a nice Lemony flavor to it, but still tastes a great deal like Earl Grey just lighter.

drank Earl Grey by Twinings
114 tasting notes

Water: 8oz

Leaves: tea bag

Measuring Spoon: no

Steep: 4m

Aroma: Peppery,Sweet/floral?

Color: Deep reddish brown

Clarity: a faint cloudiness

Taste: This was my first Earl Grey experience, pouring the water over the tea bag i notices a slight peppery aroma. After steeping the aroma had changed to a more Sweet/floral one, it’s quite interesting since i don’t think I’ve come across a tea like this scent wise. The color was a deep reddish brown with a bit of cloudiness but i could still see threw my cup. As for taste i found it to be a bit bitter as for the overall flavor profile it was tough to pinpoint exactly & leaves a dry mouth feel. Overall not the worst or best tea I’ve tried, it’s just okay.

Lately I have been drinking a lot of mint tea. Twinings peppermint is good, and has a decent strength which I’d call somewhere in the middle.

drank French Vanilla Chai by Twinings

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.

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!
