There is an excellent tea out there called Raspberry Thriller. I like the
Twinings Brand although other brands taste similar. This to me is one of the
great flavoured teas out there. It is a nice change from the traditional but
wonderful earl grey's and so forth.

Hi,

I have tried Twinings before, I just don't care for the Bergamot that is
incorporated into it. I went back to Lipton ``The Brisk Tea" in the
form of tea bags.

I don't like bergamot either- and I sometimes drink Twinings. Prince of
Wales hads no bergamot. The only tea that has bergamot is Earl Grey, and
most major tea sellers have some version of that.

When i first start drinking tea seriously about eight years ago, I
have bought some tea from London. before that i usally used to drink
only Bangladeshi CTC teaand Indian darjeeling and Assam tea. My first
twining tea was English breakfast tea( A blend) I really fallen love
with blend tea. Then I bought there irish breakfast blend and
Traditional afternoon blend. All were excellent tea. Twining is one of
the world,s oldest tea company ,started in 1706. if you don't like
bergamot Twinings has more to offer. I can't exactly tell how many
kinds. But i can assure you, you will like there Prince of wales( its
chinese Keemun tea blended from different estates). you can also try
there Finest Cylon(high grown tea from Dimbula region). There Oreng
Pekoe( Blend of indian and Cylon black tea), They have lapsang
Souchong(Scented chinese black tea, smokey).

They have many excellent blends. You will like them. The reason I
don't buy Twinings anymore because-they never mention the sources
name. Actually this is english tea business tradition. If you are
American you already know there are many tea vendors and they
commercialise tea too far. I heard of 3,000 varities of tea but
believe me there are not that many varities of unique taste. I grow up
in Bangladesh where tea culture in more then a century old and also
Bangladesh is a tea growing counry. Don't fooled with advertisment
just enjoy your unique taste. Twinings is a great brand to start with.
check there web site at www.twinings.com if you don't like bergamote
forget it go for there other black teas or blend. Blends has exotic
taste which you will never find in any single estate tea. Once you are
familier with Twings 75% tea, i can tell you-you have tried almost all
kinds black tea.

Thanks. Enjoy your cup of tea in your way.

My first experiences with "loose" tea was also with Twinings, something like
35 years ago or more! Although I don't drink Twinings today (I've dealt with
Ted at Tea Trader for probably a decade now), I do remember some fine cups.
Or perhaps it was the marked distinction between bagged and loose tea,
properly brewed. But I remember the English Breakfast as very nice.
