Twinings Blueberry & Apple Infusion


There are few things more com­fort­ing than a crisp day under the rich col­ours of autumn, the sea­son for fresh apples, blue­ber­ries, figs and nashi pears. This here is Twinings Blueberry & Apple Infusion.

Infusing one tea bag in 200 ml of water at 90ºC for 3 minutes yields a trans­lu­cent ruby red liquor with an acid­ic fruity nose. A crisp apple fla­vour comes through briefly ahead of deep notes of plump blue­ber­ries in the body that are sweet with an acid­ity devel­op­ing that reminds of crunchy green apples before a tart blue­berry fla­vour lingers on the pal­ate.

This tea was a pleas­ant sur­prise for a fruit infu­sion as many berry-based infu­sions from Twinings often have little com­plex­ity in its fla­vour past its ini­tial acid­ity. The fla­vour and col­our of the infu­sion are both bright, mak­ing it the per­fect tea to tuck into on an over­cast autumn after­noon.

This box of Twinings Blueberry & Apple Infusion con­tained 20 envel­opes. It was packed in the United Kingdom and pur­chased in London, the United Kingdom in 2013.
