Time for Tea Please?
Taking time to have a cup of tea is more essential to me now than ever. Time to escape from the madness of Lockdown life. Especially after a long day at work. Thanks to Twist Tea for sending me some of there teas to try.
Twist Tea was found in January 2017 by the Kavanaugh family to create ( taken direct from website) something really innovative for lovers of tea and set about creating a range of the finest whole leaf teas, herbs and fruits, blended to delight taste buds and bring a smile to its drinkers.
They’ve “always loved tea. There’s nothing like it to lift the spirits and raise a smile, whether alone or with others, out and about or in the comforts of your own home”.
That sentiment is absolutely lovely especially at the covid would we find ourselves in with Lockdown in full swing again.

Strawberry and Rose
For this blend Twist uses : Chinese White Tea, Apple Pieces, Rosehip, Hibiscus, Freeze-dried Strawberry (5%), Elderflower, Orange Blossom, Rose Petals, Orange Peel, Natural Flavouring.
As soon as you open the tea pouch the fruity floral aromas of the blend are coming through. While the white tea is taking a back seat.
Let’s get Brewing!
I love being able to see the tea blend through the pyramid teabags.
The aroma whilst brewing is primarily that of strawberry but on closer sniffing the Rose shines quietly through.
The brewed liquid is of a deep pink colouring. It certainly helps entice you in to want to drink it! Not that it doesn’t smell tealicious.
Let’s Get Sipping!
First sip and I am surprised at how delicate the tea sip is. The white tea within the blend adds it unique flavour as an under lying taste to the tea blend. With its clean taste. Hard to imagine a clean taste but that’s just white tea for you. Crisp and clear.
The Rose is actually more prominent within the sip in comparison to the strawberry side of the teas naming. With the use of the other ingredients the tea flavouring is fruity berry and citrus with a floral side mixed with crisp white tea.
This tea would be perfect hot , cold or as a spritzer it’s such a versatile blend.
Happy Sipping 🙂
