I sniffed the contents of the can the moment it arrived and I immediately noted the strong Assam tea scent. Ohh...milk tea! ♥
This blend has a perfect mix of Assam tea from the Brahmaputra Valley in North Eastern Assam with the Yunnan tea leaves of South Western China. The best way to prepare this is to use a Chinese or English tea cup where you can strain the loose tea leaves from the water. In my case, I made use of a french press that did the job perfectly as well.
I drank my tea plain, no sugar, no honey and yet it was very flavorful. However, I'll try to be more creative next time by adding honey, milk or perhaps a dash of cinnamon to give me that Christmas-y feel.
The Twinings Diamond Jubilee Loose Leaf Tea Blend (100g) is available for a limited time in all Santi's Deli outlets in the Philippines. They're selling it for only Php. 580 which I think is a good deal as you get the commemorative tin can too!
