Mild grassy taste – no intense flavors. Very clean tasting, yet unexciting.

I don’t dislike green tea, but it’s not my favorite. I can appreciate a good cup when I’m invited or when I receive one as a gift, but I rarely invest myself. However, there are times when I want that clean, distinct grassiness, straight in warm water without no additives.
Today I had something slightly greasy for dinner, and wanted a cup of green tea to cleanse it out. Usually I go for Puerh or Oolong, but I didn’t have any on my cupboard. Instead I tried this complimentary tea bag I just got from my last Twinings order, and it does its job. Steeped for a minute and a half, light and just right for my taste.
Straight forward green tea. Definitely pick up on the grassy notes. Enough flavor that it didn’t require me to add any sweeteners or milk. The brew time was short compared to other teas I drink to get the desired flavor (3 mins for this brew).
I tend to use green teas as a base to other teas I drink, but, tonight, I opted to go for it plain and found it to be pleasing and light on the palate. Nothing amazing, but nothing I would avoid, either.

Honestly I have grabbed this sample bag today purely to bring my cupboard down to three pages. I like the look of it when its three pages, not four with one tea dangling all on its own on the last page.
This strikes me as a beginners green tea. Unmemorable, inoffensive, practically unobtrusive. Not destined to make a repeat performance in my cupboard, for all it was easy to drink.
A cheat-y sipdown, but a sipdown all the same, and now my cupboard can be three pages again. Whee!
This is pretty much a standard in Canada and Great Britain.
It’s a good cup of green tea . They also sell 200 bag boxes, which really makes it a value, if you can find them.
Each one is individually wrapped.
Twinnings probably has the best blenders in the world. They deal with so much tea.
It’s better than the Walmart Brand here, as well.
Next time I get another box, I will update this.
