I thought that a review if Twinings Green Tea Keurig K-cups would be a great way to start off the New Year. As many of us are vowing to live a healthier life, drink more water, cut back on soda, lose weight...green tea is an essential part of a healthy lifestyle.
There are several varieties of green tea available in a K-cup. I will review all of them but, wanted to start with Twinings because first of all, Twinings is the ultimate authority on tea in my humble opininion. Second, they offer green tea in a very raw form. This K-cup tea is very unadulterated just, pure green tea at its finest.
I chose to brew my Twinings Green Tea Keurig K-cup on the highest water setting of my brewer. I have found that all Kcup teas are perfectly suited to stand up to the extra amount if water and maintain a strong body and taste. As a matter of fact, I have been known to use my K-cup teas twice.
When I hit brew in my Keurig a grassy aroma filled the air. This is exactly what I was hoping for. With this particular K-cup I want green tea and nothing else.
The taste is reflective of the smell...very grassy, very organic. The grass taste is followed by a pleasant, soothing lemon flavor that balances this K-cup out quite nicely. The pleasing lemon flavor lingers on the tongue, replacing the original green taste.
This grassy taste strongly appeals to me but, it can be an aquired taste for some. This might seem odd but, I think that I need to make my taste recommendation based on foods. This flavor is unique and can not be compared to any other K-cup beverages. If you like the taste of greens and don't need to coat your salads with dressing you will love this K-cup green tea.
If you are a person that eats a little broccoli with your cheese, this is not the K-cup for you. But, don't worry you can still enjoy the health benefits of green tea. Bigelow makes a green tea K-cup that may suit you better. It is flavored with hints of pomegranate eliminating the grassy sort of taste.
P.S. It taste's amazing over ice!
