Time for tea please?
Now we are full on autumn mode as well as being back in lockdown , taking time out for a cuppa is much needed. So when Twist Teas approached me about trying there teas of course I wasn’t going to say no !
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.

Orange and Lemon
For this tea , Twist Teas blends : Apple Pieces, Rosehip, Hibiscus, Lemongrass (14%), Lemon Peel (12%), Orange Peel (7%), Orange Blossom (4%), Natural Flavouring .
On opening the tea pouch you are instantly hit with citrus notes of the blend. The lemongrass is the shining light in its dry state.
The blend itself just looks tealicious!
Now this brew is part of Twist Teas cold brew range however I’m going to have it hot.
The aroma whilst brewing is a complete marriage of the two main ingredients the orange and lemon so it screams st.clements
I was rather shocked by the brewed liquid colouring of a pink shade but then remembered the hibiscus and rosehip within this tea blend.
Let’s get Sipping.
First sip is just tealicious.
The orange and the lemon are a match made in heaven. It screams St. Clements. For me it’s a 2 sip tea. At first the tea tastes of orange and then the after taste of the tea is lemon.
Despite the other ingredients within the blend they aren’t majorly noticeable. The odd occasions you can taste the use of the apple , hibiscus and rosehip it’s does change the sipping dynamic. However they are used more to support, enhance and enrich the flavour of the orange and lemon.
You can tell that this tea is made to be had cold as well as hot due to the strength of the blend. As well as the fact that the flavour stays the same strength throughout the whole cuppa.
I really enjoyed the drink as a hot brew but served ice cold or even as a cheeky cold spritzer it would be just BeauTEAful!
Happy Sipping 🙂
