Twinings Australian Afternoon Tea11

Posted on June 5, 2011 by ChristieFood News, Taste Tests

With all the sweet stuff that has been sent to me lately, it was with some relief that I opened up a package filled with five tea bags.

Twinings recently gave a tea blending kit to 40 celebrities and asked them to come up with their own signature tea that will be mass produced and sold as ‘Australian Afternoon Tea’.

The top 5 entries for the competition were (in no particular order); Kevin Rudd, Kerri-Anne, Alan Jones, Layne Beachley and John Williamson – see picture above!

Hubby and I taste tested them all and my favourite was Kerri-Anne’s (citrusy and very ‘girly’) and his was John Williamson’s (smokey and ‘manly’, ha!). How completely stereotypical!

You have a chance to taste them too and cast your vote as Twinings are having special tasting events around the country (more details here). The winner will be announced on August 29th!

I think it’s quite exciting to have an ‘Australian’ tea blend rather than having to ask for ‘English Breakfast’ all the time in cafes. Although I have to admit, if I order tea out, it’s usually a chai with soy milk.

What’s your favourite tea?
