Twinings Earl Grey Teas (**GIVEAWAY**)

Tea is a big part of my daily life, from waking up with it to winding down in the evening with a cup of tea.  I love how it has so many great benefits, from relaxing to warming up.  One of my favorite teas is Earl Grey, for its fragrant aroma and taste.  Recently, Twinings Teas released three new Earl Grey teas that I couldn’t wait to try.

Twinings Teas have been around since the early 1700’s, when the House of Twinings was opened in London.  Their Earl Grey was blended in 1831 by Richard Twining, and given royal approved by the Prime Minister, Mr. Charles Grey.  To this day Twinings Earl Grey is enjoyed throughout the world, and the company has grown to offer over 200 varieties of tea!

While I have enjoyed Twinings Earl Grey teas for years, I couldn’t be more excited to try their new Extra Bold Earl Grey.  This tea is described as “an intensified Earl Grey Blend”.  If I were to have a tea personally designed for me, this would be it!  What I love about earl grey tea is that beautiful fragrant scent when you pick up your cup, and the perfumed flavor melting in your mouth.

This tea is quick and easy to make by bringing water to a boil and pouring over your tea.  Let the tea bag steep for 3 minutes or to desired taste.  While I love to drink this plain, I prepare the Extra Bold Earl Grey in a variety of ways.  Sometimes with a little sugar, or sugar and milk.  My friend even makes macarons with Earl Grey tea!

Another version that is downright amazing: The “London Fog” Earl Grey Latte.  This involves preparing the tea with steamed milk and vanilla syrup (I use my electric frother to mix it up and create a little foam).  The best description I have for this is simply that it is beautiful.

While I love Earl Grey and a variety of other teas, because I drink so much tea, I am always looking for new flavors.  I can’t say I have had anything other than a plain Earl Grey tea, so I was intrigued by the idea of Twining’s Jasmine and Lavender Earl Grey teas.

Twinings Lavender Earl Grey is perfect for those times I need a little “zen”.  When I have had a long day and I need both a little pick me up and something to help unwind too.  I love the combination of the Earl Grey with the Lavender, which come together to make a beautifully fragrant cup of tea.

I am usually accustomed to drinking Jasmine tea as part of a green tea blend.  As an avid tea drinker, I love finding new tea flavors that keep my tea routine fresh.  Twinings Jasmine Earl Grey has a lovely floral aroma to it.  I often start my day with this tea, helping me bear those bitter single-digit temperatures while we wait at the bus stop so early in the morning.

These Earl Grey teas are a fantastic addition to the line of Twinings Teas.  They are so versatile, yet at the same time, are a unique selection of flavors.  I highly recommend checking them out, and you can easily find the Twinings brand at local retailers.  A box of 20 tea bags runs about $2.99.

    As a tea collector since I was a little girl, Twinings is about the only tea I actually like that is bagged. I usually go for loose-leaf, but while I was in London I visited Twinings and learned a lot about their process. The Queen’s tea as I like to call it (Queen Elizabeth drinks their tea). I make my husband iced-tea a lot and I’d like to try their cold brews for him!

    I like the idea of their seasonal teas, like Christmas Tea and Winter Spice. Thank you for the contest!

    I grew up with Earl Grey tea as a special treat when we were being fancy. It was a pleasure to grow up and realize that I could have it all the time!

    We drink a lot of tea here so would love to win this! My daughter prefers fruit teas and just took a container of it to school this morning. She gets migraines so I like that she has found something to drink that’s more natural and not full of junk.

    I bet the lavender tea is so good. My husband drinks a lot of tea. I think he would like this one.

    I love, love, love Earl Gray tea. It’s a nice way to enjoy a relaxing few minutes with a good book or just a lack of kids screaming in the background.
