One of my all time favourites. I started drinking this tea as a child, and was like a sort of introduction to tea for me.
I love the strong body of this tea combined with the bergamot aroma. It offers a good value for money. Probably better earl greys can be found, but it’s quiet affordable and can be easily found in most supermarkets.
I’d say it’s a deffinitely must-have in my kitchen’s cupboard.
Flavors: Citrus, Earl Grey, Earth
Another bag from huge bags. Apparently I had similar one (see https://steepster.com/Martin-CZE/posts/397905 )
But I feel it is bit different. More strawberry, less mango. Quite Fresh and Fruity (good name for tea series). Taste is mostly strawberry, Mango… not here? It is not artificial (strawberry). And even juicy! Mouth-watering, great taste… just more mango please!
Flavors: Fruity, Strawberry
I wonder if US version is same or not.
But I have this one, based on bag design.
The aroma is strong, and unfortunately it smells bit like a dish soap to me. I think that lavender + bergamot don’t work very well in aroma.
Taste was pleasant on the other side, it was nice and mild, with floral notes of lavender and citrus, pleasant sourness. Base tea was present and nice too.
I am bit puzzled how to rate it. Taste was pleasant, but that aroma wasn’t great. Hmm… Fresh it would be much better I bet.
On the other news; my grandma had a stroke yesterday evening, so I am not really in mood even making tea. Luckily, it was just some minor and with “ups and downs”, so it was partially free, not blocked completely. Oh boy, and she was okay few hours earlier. But because of COVID, we can’t even visit her. I feel sad.
Flavors: Bergamot, Citrusy, Floral, Lavender, Pleasantly Sour
It was my first experience with Twinings and with White Tea. I steeped this tea several times, the best experience was 2 teabags (4g) in 250 ml of water at 80º.
I liked to drink at night, because it has a soft flavor.
I think this tea is very sensible, maybe because it’s a white tea, but I never drank another white tea so I’m not sure. You can try steep it in different temperatures and times. It will have different flavors, but not necessarily good ones. That part was I most disliked.
10oz in tea for one pot, my mid-afternoon break.
Another classic, Twinings has a straightforward approach that does not cut any corners.
Initial notes are a strong maltiness, thanks to the Assam tea used but with the tangy bite of a classic Ceylon black tea steeped perfectly. It will certainly wake you up! Or at very least put a little hair on your chest. This is partially due to the tannin on the finish, which lingers in the throat as a reminder that you are enjoying a good hearty cup.
This is a great breakfast tea since it would be very receptive to cream or your choice of sweetener. The tea equivalent of a good dry red wine or quality black coffee. The caffeine is present and welcomed.
Easy stock for the pantry and cost-effective. The sort of offering that comes from a company with centuries of blending and brewing experience. I would recommend this for a bright start to your day.
Flavors: Biting, Malt
This reminds me of Celestial Seasoning’s Candy Cane Lane. It’s good but I do prefer Candy Cane Lane. I would undoubtedly like this more if I didn’t already have something that resembelled it so closely to compare it to. Don’t get me wrong, I do still enjoy it but if someone asked me to choose between the two, I’d pick the Celestial Seasoning’s offering. The combination of peppermint and vanilla is soothing and is perfect when you just want to sit back and relax. Since Candy Cane Lane is a seasonal tea, I buy that one during the winter and Twinings during the remainder of the year.
Flavors: Peppermint, Vanilla
Another cuppa from big bags.
The aroma was bit funky, somehow off – but I could not really point what is wrong. It was like kind of artificial.
It was kind of tart as well, but it includes cranberry so I am not tht surprised. I had to search what Sanguinello Orange is – apparently it’s kind of blood orange, which I really enjoy and they were well present in the taste. Overall it was very juicy, fruity and enjoyable.
Flavors: Blood orange, Cranberry, Fruity, Tart
Another cuppa from huge bags
Quite tart from cranberries and hibiscus (I assume it’s in), not uch notes of raspberry and elderflower is not here at all (brewed and drank hot), when it cools down it is more into raspberry and elderflower, which is great. Cold brewing could make this tea even more tasty probably, but as I had only one tea bag, moreover, probably quite old…
But it was decent, yeah not that great, as I have maybe expected, but as fruit tea, it was quite tasty and all 3 notes it should have I think it have. Forgettable though.

Flavors: Cranberry, Floral, Raspberry, Tart
