A smooth black tea with a hint of orange. Nice but not worth a special effort.
Merry Christmas Winter Spiced Loose Tea (Twinings)
212° for 2 min
The Twinings Christmas blend this year is Winter Spice.
It is a black Assam tea from North-East India, expertly blended with warming spice flavours, safflowers and orange peel for a delicious festive treat.
This is a very strong tea and easy to overbrew! I had to try four times before I got it right… but it was worth the effort. It tastes almost like Constant Comment and the only reason it does not get five stars is that Constant Comment is so much easier to get.
