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?
