Thursday Tea Time - "It's a Lovely Winter we are Having this Spring"

This week - Twinings Winter Spice

Cost:  $2.99 at Cost Plus World Market
Number of teabags:  20
Caffeine:  No
Type of tea:   Herbal
Steeping time:  5
Add ins:  Just a teeny bit of sugar
Tea fragrance:   Fruity cinnamon
Ingredients:   Camomile, natural apple flavor with other natural flavors, cinnamon, cardamom and clove
Opinion:   Might as well take advantage and review this tea while the cold front is blowing through!  Glad I did, and you certainly don't need a crazy Texas Spring to enjoy this.  It had a nice flowery-fruity-spicy flavor, with an apple-flavored kick at the end.  Not overly apple-y, not over-cinnamonized, the cardamon and camomile help hold it together quite well.  I really enjoyed it after supper last night, and the fact it was herbal and caffeine-free made it even better.  I plan to drink this through the Spring, iced as soon as our weather will be hot again...and look forward to getting another box this Fall/Winter.  What season is it again?!
Rating:  4.5
