5.0 out of 5 stars Great bagged black tea for a great price!, October 20, 2008
This review is from: Twinings English Breakfast Tea, Tea Bags, 50-Count Boxes (Pack of 6) (Grocery)
While I would not say that this is the best black tea on the market, as others have said in their reviews, I do want to point out that it is a great bagged tea and for an amazing price (especially when purchased off Amazon) although nothing really beats loose leaf tea. Because each bag is individually wrapped (while I feel bad about the environmental waste) it will stay fresh even if you purchase a boat load of these 50-count boxes. I enjoy tea nearly every morning (unless my significant other wants me to run out for some coffee... in which case I'll have a coffee) and prepare it in my travel mug and drink it on my way to school. It think it is a beautiful habit to prepare your tea every morning, and it is a peaceful activity that I enjoy. Twinings English Breakfast makes my morning routine easy, and it tastes great to boot. I generally steep this for about 4 minutes with 2-3 tea bags, depending on if I am using just a regular cup, or my travel mug which holds a lot more. I then squeeze the bags before I throw them out to get as much flavor as possible. I then add a little milk (not much though!) and a bit of sugar. I know some people enjoy the tea just the way it is without additives, but I am a former coffee drinker and find a bit of milk and sugar creates a very full bodied drink. Twinings English Breakfast has enough flavor that you are not drowning it if you add some milk.... but I never brew just one bag so I couldn't tell you how it is with a single bag.

This tea is a great alternative to coffee, and a healthier option as well. Enjoy!
