Tea, tea, tea, what a wonderful thing. I know for a fact that my dissertation will never of been written without the power of a good brew. Now as much as I enjoy tea I have a soft spot for a good old builders brew – which isn’t the healthiest of teas to be enjoying. So I often try to switch my morning and evening cuppas with green tea, and even though I’ve found some which I enjoy the taste of I always feel like it’s missing something. This is where Twinings came in a saved my cup of green tea.
I was unable to attend what sounded like a fantastic tea workshop with their Master Blenders, so the guys kindly sent me some tea to try so I didn’t miss out completely. I received the new range of Twinings Sweet Greens Teas* – Caramelised Apple, Gingerbread, and Salted Caramel.
When opening the Twinings Sweet Greens Teas I was at first very surprised and intrigued by the flavours – they’re definitely unlike any others I’ve seen. However upon giving them each a try I was overjoyed. Finally I’ve found a healthy green tea with that little bit extra I’ve always been searching for! It turns out this is exactly what Twinings were aiming to do, in their own words-
“Knowing that people are looking for tasty ways to enjoy green tea and that nostalgic flavours like gingerbread are enjoying a revival. Twinings has created an innovative new range of teas which provide an irresistible twist to a feel-good classic. Available in three indulgent flavours and with just four calories per cup, the Sweet Greens range is a great way to experience the goodness of green tea with a great taste.”
The Twinings Gingerbread tea is definitely my favourite (maybe because it reminds me of Christmas) it has all the elements of a warming ginger cake – not too overpowering, but enough to make you go all gooey inside. The Twinings Caramelised Apple tea was a little more refreshing with a tangy apple crumble flavour, thanks to the undertones of toffee and cinnamon. The Twinings Salted Caramel tea was more sweet than salty and was definitely sweeter than the other two teas – perfect for those who suffer a sweet-tooth in an evening! I would recommend you to give them a try as they are definitely a new and more fun way to get your green tea hit each day!
Have you ever tried Twinings Sweet Greens range? Which was your favourite? Are there any other flavoured green teas you would recommend to others?
