Miss Cole's Tea Time - Queen's 90th Birthday Tea
To celebrate Her Majesty's 90th birthday, Twinings have released a special edition tea. I picked this up at Heathrow on my way to the US last month. What can I say, my response to flight cancellations is to buy so much tea, the USA's TSA felt the need to search my suitcase :P I'm sorry, American security people. I just really like tea! I am that English stereotype.
The tea is a blend of leaves from three Commonwealth countries. It has such a sweet scent. This translates into a light taste that's perfect for the afternoon. The Kenyan and Sri Lankan teas add a gentle touch to the Assam. I like to think someone reaching their 90th birthday will find this tea to be a very relaxing way to celebrate with a good slice of cake. For those of us who are a few years short, I think it makes an excellent accompaniment to editing.
