Drinking tea makes me happy. Sometimes it’s my mind that needs healing. Sometimes it’s my entire spirit. And a hot cup will do that. Ever since I can remember, my dad has had a big hand in educating and indoctrinating me on the joys of sipping. And one of the first teas he introduced me to was Twinings.
For this posting I sampled the Decaffeinated Earl Grey. And the flavors and aromas take me back to having a cup with my pop.
How could only two ingredients, decaf black tea and bergamot, taste so good? I think I just answered my own question. Sometimes two is all you need. It’s the simple things. Thankfully this is decaf. Because as of this writing, I’m three cups in and could drink this all night. It’s the right balance of sweet, and maybe the slightest hint of bitter.
As soon as I dipped in the bag, the scents were intoxicating. And how about that beautiful color?
With all the brands of teas popping up, it’s easy for one of the originators to get lost in the shuffle. Luckily, Twinings has kept up with the times, with new packaging, innovative new teas, and affordable prices. There’s a reason they have been world renowned and respected for over 300 years. I get goose bumps thinking about that fact.
This is only the beginning in posting about this legendary company. They have so many flavors I want to try and as the weather breaks, And with some of the most user friendly instructions on how to brew perfectly, it’ll encourage me to do just that.
In the meantime, I am enjoying myself with a return of one of my favorite mugs from Assateague Island, and with some yummy Cadbury Eggs. This is the perfect post holiday treat! And I find this to be the perfect way to relax and settle my stomach after overdoing with unhealthy foods this past weekend.
I hope you all had a tremendous holiday. Here’s to a happy and healthy warm weather season!
