Shop My Stash: Twinings Teas

I promise this post is not sponsored by Twinings - I just love their teas! I've managed to procure quite a collection, so I thought I'd share my stash with you!
 Twinings speciality teas
Twinings Strawberry & Raspberry Tea, £1.49/20 teabags
Ok, let's get the least favourite of the bunch out of the way first! This box has been in my cupboard for ages - oh, look, it's two months out of date now. Why? I really don't like it! I find this tea far too bitter and have to add a teaspoon of sugar to sweeten it, which just defeats the purpose of a healthier hot drink, for me anyway!
Twinings Relaxing Camomile & Spearmint Tea, £1.49/20 teabags
This is definitely one of my staple teas! It really is relaxing. I find it calming, so I like to start the day with this, and if it's been a stressful day, I'll end with this, too! It has a soft, subtle spearmint taste with a slight sweetness from the camomile.
Twinings Invigorating Peppermint Tea, £1.49/20 teabags
I remember trying peppermint tea at a very young age, and really disliking it! But, as I enjoy the above tea, I thought I'd give it another go. And yes, I do like it now! It's really refreshing and a good palate cleanser.
Healthy green teas
Twinings Peach & Cherry Blossom Green Tea, £1.69/20 teabags
This has a definite peach taste and is quite pleasant and refreshing. I like to have this alongside my evening meal.
Twinings Mango & Lychee Green Tea, £1.69/20 teabags
This is really fruity, refreshing, and pleasant. I also like this alongside an evening meal.
Twinings Fudge Melts Green Tea, £2.49/20 teabags
I bought this after trying and loving the salted caramel version. These are very similar, but not quite as good! It has a pleasant, sweet, fudge-like taste, which is nice for after dinner.
Tea for chocoholics
Twinings Nutty Chocolate Flavour Assam Tea, £3.49/12 teabags
This is the most luxurious of the bunch, and definitely one for us sweet-toothed gals! I was very skeptical about a chocolate tea - I mean, would it actually taste anything like chocolate? Well, yes, it does! It has a gorgeous chocolatey, hazelnut aftertaste, and I love the luxe mesh teabags! This is lovely to enjoy of an evening, or if the sweet tooth beckons during the day.
