Nice, they suggested to drink it with milk but I think it’s good to drink straight, not very heavy, just the right taste

This company has instruction video on how to brew their tea, they suggest to brew by slowly pouring the water into the pot and stir the tea leaves with a spoon, then take away the tea leaves immediately and leave the tea for a while before drinking. The tea is light in taste, no astringency, slightly sweet, and has a very beautiful strong green aroma. Though the tea I made using the method is a bit cloudy, but it’s still in a lovely honey colour.
It’s nice to try but I wish it could be a little bit cheaper…

Flavors: Green

This taste sweet, but somehow doesn’t resemble vanilla very much to me, it’s a bit weird. I drank it plain hot. Guys please tell me how to enjoy this properly because I don’t want to waste them. Would it be better iced?

Update: tastes better with milk, but still not worth it

The usual ones are better and cheaper.

This one, I have to say, is plain (just the little bitterness), it is relatively strong though (not sure if it’s because the size of each teabag is larger with this one), as they said on the package, but I have hoped for a better flavouring profile with such price.
The aroma comes out mostly when it’s just brewed and becomes difficult to detect later. It feels like a stronger version of breakfast tea but is different to Scottish breakfast (not floral, maybe because it’s Assam), I can’t see what the golden tip brought. However, the good point is that the liquid itself is very smooth and silky.
Makes me believe more than half of the money probably went to the packaging design.
P.s. one of my teabag broke apart from its string when I unroll it, not ok twinings

I love this so much, wanted to get loose leaf but they sold out so it’s in teabag.
Ceylon aroma, strong full-bodied breakfast tea taste. Can’t find the weight of each teabag so I brewed it with 200mL water but turns out too bitter, maybe it’s 2.5g, so I added a little more water in it and it turns out well. I’m fond of strong teas and this one certainly caught me, it has less tannin than its bitterness, and the texture is smooth and a little thick. Definitely a caffeine boost, maybe not everyday but you’d want this from time to time. 1 cup seems a bit too much for me, half a cup would be just right.

Sweet strawberry candy aroma, very cute. It actually taste of a bit of berryish sourness, I drank this hot and look forward in trying it cold too.

Update: very nice if it’s iced, I enjoyed it with some peach syrup

A bit disappointed at how weak it comes out. I expected full bodied Assam flavour but this is just similar to usual flavoured tea, the Assam is not that easy to notice. Chocolate bit tastes like unsweetened oatmeal in water. The sticky thickness is obvious. Smells lovely of sweet chocolate.
I’ll try brewing it stronger to see if it can be better.
