From Twinings

Our English Breakfast is over 80 years old and tastes even better than ever. This blend is the perfect mix of Assam, Ceylon and Kenya to complement any breakfast whether it’s a healthy bowl of fruit to a wholesome full English. Even though this blend is perfect for the morning it is also fantastic throughout the day, whenever you need a little pick me up this one will help.

I would say this tea compares a bit unfavorably to the Trader Joe’s English breakfast tea bags. The Twinings is more expensive and less flavorful. The Twinings is an adequate cup of tea, but definitely lacks the crisp and bright flavor that one seeks in a cup of tea in the morning.

So I have made an oops.
I was doing so well on the sipping down, and feeling good about the shape of the cupboard, that I got a little soft.
I was reading an article about Jane Austen, and it was saying that she was in charge of the tea chests in her family, and in charge of the ordering of tea from Twinings. How neat! So I may have wandered over onto the Twinings website, and seen that they had special edition packaging of some teas, tying in with the Beauty and the Beast movie. And as I love tea, and as Beauty and the Beast is my favorite fairy tale, and I love almost all versions of it, and those teas are all non caffeinated and I’ve been wanting to drink more tea in the evenings and…..
Well. Ooops.
In addition to my new herbal teas they also sent along sample sachets, ballooning the cupboard totals up again, and argh, whoops, oops.
Fortunatly, single sachets are great for the office, and I brewed this up to help with the headache.
Its a basic but quite decent breakfast blend. It doesn’t make my taste buds sing or my mind fall into rapture, but nor does it bore or repel me. Its basic, solid, and perfectly pleasant in many ways.
I enjoyed my cup, but will not run out and buy any, and I am pleased to have another tea to knock out of the cupboard.

This is the Canadian version which is made with Ceylon and Indian Teas. I bought this one at Walmart for $8 Canadian.

Looking at the dry leaf, you will notice that it looks like it has been all ground up. Hopefully, the lighter colour are tips and not twigs etc. A quick tip: if you roll the bowl of leaf around a bit, you can get an idea of how much dust there is in the tea. There is little aroma in the dry leaf. The brewed leaf has juat a little tea aroma.

The brewed cup is just as unexciting. I tested two David’s breakfast teas yesterday and this one and they were all like this.

My advice is to find a good quality Ceylon.

Strangely, I have a package of Twinings English Breakfast in Teabags that has been sitting around for two years and it is better than this as well. A nice clear reddish brew that I have drunk without milk and sugar. Note that the Brits get a different blend in their home country as well.

I decided to brew this morning as well in a more concentrated form, because I had watched Twinings brew it this way. I measured out a teaspoon (3 grams) and 200 mL of water for 3 minutes. The tea was more brisk this morning. There was almost a metallic taste on the tip of my tongue. My tongue now feels furry and a numb.

When I was much younger (think single digit age), this tea was a treat. Now that I am buying my own, this is my basic tea. It’s strong enough to go with copious amounts of milk, or as a cold strong lemon tea. It still tastes good even when over-steeped by my fiancé who always leaves the bag in the cup. It’s basically my pantry staple. I buy the tea bags.

I love the full bodied nature of this tea. I highly recommend the loose leaf over the bagged — the tea doesn’t taste metallic like some of the English Breakfast tea bags I’ve tried. Great for any time of the day!

Solid everyday tea…good strength and flavor, what most people are looking for when they see “English Breakfast Tea.” I usually go to it for my second cup of the day, after starting with a stronger Assam. I haven’t had this one in a while, just commenting on it now because I’m looking forward to adding it back. I have a lot of it back in North Carolina, and I’m heading back the end of the week. I’m definitely planning on starting my first day back to work with this one! :)
