From Twinings

In honour of Queen Elizabeth II’s 90th birthday, Twinings’ master blenders have created this very special commemorative blend of tea in a beautifully illustrated, limited edition collector’s tin.

The Tea
This lovely new tea blend uses the finest quality black teas from three Commonwealth countries. Full-bodied tea from Assam, India; refreshing Kenyan tea and a rich, smooth Sri Lankan variety swirl together for a marvellous celebratory cup. Make a pot and you’ll discover a flavour that’s bold, bright and uplifting. And for every commemorative tin we sell, we’ll make a donation to QEST: the Royal Warrant Holders Association Charity, supporting excellence in British craftsmanship.

Yours truly (J) was excited to try his first Twinings loose leaf tea, received as a gift from J’s work. It is described as a breakfast tea that is a blend of leaves from British Commonwealth countries to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday.

It doesn’t have any added flavors, so it’s just a black tea blend, which is exactly what the first steeping (1tsp / 8oz / 4min ) tasted and smelled like. It was pleasant but boring: Somewhat light in flavor and in tannin, and without any signature flavor or scents. I’m new to detecting subtle flavors, so that could be the reason I’d just call it ‘tea’.

Second steeping (6min) added milk until beige (1-2 tsp) to simulate the British experience. The milk drowned out a lot of the tea flavor, so next time I would use less milk or only add it to the first steeping.

The best part is the tin. It’s decorative and festive; fun while remaining pretty classy.
