I bought this tea a few weeks ago when it was on sale because my local grocerystore is selling out tea’s to make shelve space. Had alot of bagged twinnings over the years but never loose leafe from them. Because i usualy drink high quality jasmine pearls i was curious about the taste off this one.
Upon opening the package the loose leaves look pretty good, they don’t smell alot tough u can smell the jasmine. Brewed them for about 2m30sec with 80c water like i do most off my greens.
When the tea cooled down a bit i started tasting and i was a bit dissapointed in my opinion it can’t come close to jasmine pearls but for being a supermarket tea and the very cheap price it was sold to me i cannot complain!
I would probably not buy it again tough, because i’m more into high grade organic’s but for a quick jasmine cup its pretty good, but then again if i want a quick tea when i have not enough time to brew loose leave i buy bagged tea :)
I’m happy i tryed this one out so i know the difference between supermarket loose and organic loose leave tea’s! :)
edit: i forgot to mention i realy like the style off tin where its put in, gonna reuse that one later on!
