“Box says strong and malty, but tastes weak to me.”

Written on: 27/01/2014 by kevin2105 (2 reviews written)

This is not a bad tea, but as a premium brand which charges accordingly, I expect much more. If you are going to state strong and malty on the box, then make it strong and malty. I use 3 bags in a small, 2 cup tea pot and even after 5 minutes, the tea is still weak. The only time it has actually been strong enough is when I left it for 15 minutes by mistake. Then it was nice, but lukewarm. Maybe they could try putting more tea in the bags. This is a very poor tea in comparison with the far… Read Full Review

As an utter 'tea shaman', I have had the privilege to go to Assam in India and sample the finest Assam tea in the world, as well as Dharjeeling during their second flush and Pu-Erh in China, with its deep, earthen red quality.

“Twinings Assam tastes like 'normal' tea - it's not...”

Written on: 18/09/2008 by nedbrab (22 reviews written)

Twinings Assam tastes like 'normal' tea - it's not funny flavoured like lapsang souchong or Earl Grey. It tastes like Tetley. That's meant as a compliment. Nothing like PG tips. I discovered that Tetley is made from a high proportion of Assam, whereas PG tips (which I don't like) doesn't have a high proportion of Assam. So, in a nutshell, if you like Tetley, you'll love this; if you prefer PG tips, you probably won't… Read Full Review
