Twinings Teas

A while ago I was sent some Twinings teas to try, as they have launched a new range of teas ready for everyone’s January health kick.

I was sent Winter Spice, Purify and Camomile & Maple sensation, but their range includes white teas, green teas and herbal teas.

The winter spice was the first one I tried.  On the box it says “Spicy, sweet cinnamon and rich tasting licorice snuggle down with fragrant rose-hips  hibiscus and blackberry leaves“, which sounds wonderful, and when I brewed the tea it smelled amazing too. But the taste did not live up to the smell- I was disappointed really. I had it with my breakfast for a few days, and left it brewing for longer each day, but that didn’t seem to make much difference. I think it would be nice in something baked, and also it would make nice iced tea I think, so I will save it for that.

Then I tried the Camomile & Maple Sensation. This lived up to the name much better. The ingredients include camomile, natural cocoa and vanilla flavourings, Madagascan vanilla flavouring and cocoa beans. I really like camomile tea, whenever I have tried it- I think it tastes naturally sweet anyway, and quite soothing before bed-time. The vanilla (and maple flavour) added to the sweetness, but not too much. The fact they come in individually wrapped packets means I can take them to work too, although not as good for the environment.

The Purify tea is billed as being a “delicate, cleansing blend” and includes nettle, dandelion root, milk thistle, spearmint, apple, cucumber and aloe vera. It reminded me of the nettle and mint tea in the Twinings mint multi-pack- even though mint is way down the list of ingredients, the flavour came through. I like mint tea with my breakfast, and so this made a nice change.

They have loads more on their website- I like the sound of the Double mint sensation, and the Lime and Ginger sounds interesting. Although I think the Christmas teas sound the best of all!

 Do you choose different teas/ drinks for different times of the day?

  1. Long time, no comment. I’m been reading all your posts, but haven’t had a chance to comment in quite a while. I like the sound of these teas – I love Twinings Morning Detox at the moment.
    I’m a tea fanatic! My ultimate favourite is peppermint and tend to have that during the day. I also have green tea, chai, redbush and the odd cup of the black stuff.

  2. The vanilla and maple sounds like a nice combo. I definitely have a routine, coffee or black tea (with almond milk) in the morning – I love chai tea at the moment, then green throughout the day with perhaps a herbal chai after lunch then after dinner I like a sweeter tea like the sugar cookie one 🙂

  3. These all sound really nice. I like chamomile in the evening, green tea in the monring and something with mint or fennel after meals. I love Pukka teas, so I’m working my way through a few boxes of them at the minute

  4. I’ve stopped drinking black tea at work since about September. so every fornight I go shopping and pick out two to three different teas for my desk, so I’ve tried quite a few recently! I’ve had a lovey dandelion and burdock tea which I finished yesterday, and now I have twinings green tea with apple and pear, which I’m not a massive fan of, but I will drink it!
