Twinings – The Year of Tea

Episode 088: Camomile, Honey and Vanilla

If you’ve been following this podcast for any length of time, you know I usually prefer loose leaf tea. But I also know that not everyone has the time to fool with filters and water temperatures and such when they just want a warm cup of tea. So to that end, I’m also going to review more bagged teas on the show. Today, it’s Twinings’ Camomile, Honey and Vanilla.

It’s a nice fragrant tea, but honestly, all the flavor is in the aroma (which reminds me of fresh baked biscuits with butter and honey). The resulting brew itself is extremely bland — light chamomile flavor punctuated with honey, but overall, it’s pretty forgettable.

Episode 099: Prince of Wales

It’s about time I got around to drinking some proper British tea, eh wot wot? (Forgive the bad accent, y’all.) Today I am sampling Twinings Prince of Wales.

The blend is a mix of Chinese and black teas from the Jiangxi, Anhui, Yunnan, and Hunan provinces. And for a bagged tea, it’s a pretty good cup! It’s a mellow and mild blend that would be great for morning drinking. There is a slightly coppery aftertaste, but I’d imagine a splash of milk or cream would cut right through that. Try it today!

Episode 107: Lady Grey

Today I’m sampling one of Twinings’ “classic” teas — Lady Grey. I’m using classic liberally here considering this variety was invented a little less than 20 years ago. Earl Grey is ligthened up a bit with the addition of lemon and orange peel, as well as cornflower.

While the lemon and orange do make for a brighter, crisper cup of tea, they also contribute a bit of a soapy aftertaste. I’m not sure if this is present is in the loose leaf blend, but the bagged tea definitely tastes a bit flat and uninspiring.
