Twinings Superblends Review – A New Everyday Well-Being Tea Range
Unlike most people, I’m not a coffee nor a tea person — I’m both! I love coffee and it’s always my go to drink in the morning but I love tea too and often drink it in the afternoon and in the evenings.
Growing up in Sweden, I enjoyed many fun flavours as that’s what tea is like back home. It was actually strange moving to the UK where tea is such a big deal and having less choice than in Sweden. The British do love their tea but it’s mainly plain black tea. I like plain black tea too but really enjoy drinking different flavoured teas as it’s more fun and interesting.
Twinings have just launched a new range of teas called Superblends with seven blends to choose from. They are designed to support everyday well-being, the new range has been expertly blended with botanicals, natural fruit flavours, and added vitamins and minerals, to provide you with a helping hand to keep you feeling great.
The seven blends are: ‘Sleep’, ‘Energise’, ‘Glow’, ‘Defence’, ‘Detox’, ‘Matcha’ and ‘Turmeric’.
There are blends for all tastes and needs and they fit nicely into the natural daytime routine of most of us.
Rishi Deb, Twinings Master Blender comments:
“We know that consumers are increasingly looking for hassle-free ways to support a healthy lifestyle, and this insight was the very starting point for the development of our new SUPERBLENDS range.
With over three hundred years of experience, our team of Master Blenders are always looking for ways in which to innovate our offering to not only produce the best taste experience but also adapt to these changing consumer needs.
Through incorporating quality ingredients, vitamins and minerals, with unique and emerging flavour combinations – the new SUPERBLENDS range will support you on your journey towards feeling great every day, without compromising on taste.”
I have tried four of these seven blends: ‘Sleep’, ‘Energise’, ‘Glow’ and ‘Defence’.
I’m a huge fan of a relaxing brew at the end of the day to help me unwind before going to bed. My days are quite hectic and always busy and sometimes I struggle to relax at night and I find having a nighttime cuppa with calming ingredients really helps me. This blend contains delicious spiced apple, vanilla, camomile and passionflowers and is naturally caffeine free so ideal to drink in the evening.
I’m trying to cut down on my coffee consumption a bit as it easily gets a bit out of hand as I like my coffee very strong. I still want to keep my first cup in the morning but I’m trying to swap some of my other daytime coffees for tea instead and this energising green tea blend is a good choice with Guarana, Vitamin B6, mandarin and apple. It’s sweet and tasty and the added Vitamin B6 helps contribute to a normal energy-yielding metabolism.
This is my favourite Superblend! It’s a green tea with strawberry, cucumber, Aloe Vera and Biotin. It’s very summery and refreshing and would make a wonderful iced tea! Cucumber and strawberry works beautifully together and I’m happy to see Biotin in there too as I’ve recently added a Biotin supplement to daily routine so it’s something I’m interested in increasing.
This one is my go to choice when I’m feeling a bit run down as this green tea blend is packed with citrus, ginger, Echinacea root and Vitamin C — all great for supporting your immune system. It’s a tasty blend that’s warming and comforting.
The Superblends range is available to purchase both in-store and online at selected retailers nationwide (for example: Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Waitrose, Asda, Morrisons, Co-op) as well as from Twinings Flagship Store located on the Strand. They come in packs of 20 envelopes and have an RRP: £2.69 per box.
