About those Twinings tea samples …
The Pumpkin Spice Chai tasted musty and old. I'm used to a brisk, robust pumpkin flavor like the Harney and Sons Pumpkin Spice Tea, and this Twinings blend isn't even in the competition. I wondered if it was just an old tea bag.
The Jasmine Green Tea would surely be better. Meh. It was just a so-so green tea, drinkable, but with scant jasmine flavor. Nope.
Finally, surely, surely I would like the Organic Camomile with Mint and Lemon, right? But no, this just tasted like plain old chamomile tea, with maybe a teeny tiny bit of mint but no lemon flavor. And I had expected I'd love this one!
Are my tastebuds off? I think not, because I drank other teas that day that I enjoyed (including tea from a fresh box of a Twinings berry blend), just not any of these samples. Have any of you received yours? Did they taste old? I don't think I've ever said a negative word about Twinings, but I have to say these new samples left me wanting!
