Whether it's sunny out or it's pouring rain, I love a cup of tea. Hot or cold as long as it's tea I'll be happy. Twinings has been one of the most popular tea brands for many years. I'm sure having Nigella Lawson as a spokesperson for the brand definitely helps.
My home collection of teas & other goodies
As you can tell from the above photo, I have a wide variety of different teas in my cupboard. Twinings takes up most of the space, with the exception of T2, Lipton and a packet of Vanilla Sleepy Time. I like to pretend that I know what I'm talking about when it comes to tea.
For someone who doesn't drink tea regularly, it can cause a very overwhelming reaction when browsing the every so large varieties of flavours and brands. Hopefully I can help with this selection.
English Breakfast is without a doubt my favourite tea. It's smooth and creamy and perfect for any time of the day. I love having this in replace of coffee in the morning. It's also very relaxing to have a cup before bed. During summer time when I feel that it's too hot to have a warm drink, what do I do? I make iced-tea of course, and English Breakfast works best for that. I would recommend this tea for anyone who is hesitant to try to tea, or don't want anything out of the norm.
Chai Tea is my second favourite. Truth be told I didn't even know Chai could be a tea, I always thought it was known as coffee and I don't quite fancy that. That being said, the Chai Tea Twinings blend is so lovely to drink. With a touch of sugar added to your cup it really smooths out the flavours of cinnamon, ginger and cloves. It also comes in a vanilla flavour. If you're a fan of Chai I also recommend the Jarrah Chai Lattes, they're divine.
Green Tea with Lemon
Green Tea is not for everybody. It's taken me a long time to get used to it but now it's one of my favourites. Green Tea comes in many different flavours, there's green tea with mint, pure green tea, and other brands have flavours such as peach green tea. Whenever I've tried pure green tea I've always added lemon to it, so it just made more sense to buy the one that was already infused with it. Saves me from having to do it.
Camomile, Honey & Vanilla
This is a soothing bed time tea. I'm not the biggest fan of camomile, I used to drink it when I was little but as if my taste-buds really knew what was going on. Having the blend of honey and vanilla really makes this camomile enjoyable for me, I even add a little more honey or sugar to sweeten it up.
These are only a small handful of Twinings tea. Visit your local grocery store to browse the different flavours and give your taste-buds a new experience.
Remember:T is for Twinings. What's your favourite?

Thanks for the answers guys! It seems that Irish Breakfast and English Breakfast seem to be a hit favourite with most.
@Relle: I've never tried Russian Caravan, I'll have to buy it next time I'm at the local supermarket.

My favourite Twinings Tea is definitely English Breakfast just because i'm english I guess :P followed closely by Irish breakfast...

English Breakfast followed closely by Green Tea. Both very refreshing; I don't mind drinking tea when it is hot outside. I don't like flavoured teas though, it has to be the pure, real thing. Adding all kinds of artificial flavours spoil it for me.

Twining's Green Tea with Lemon. I found a Green Tea with Lime in powdered form in Canada, it was great but is not available in Australia - pity, Brian, Adelaide
