If there was a tea that best embodies the tea bush, it would be green tea. Fresh, vibrant and springlike, this tea category showcases some of nature’s greatest gifts. Unlike black tea, green tea leaves aren’t allowed to fully oxidise, meaning they retain their vivid jade colour. Depending on how it’s prepared and where it’s from, green tea will also possess a wide variety of inherent tasting notes, from fruits and vegetables, to nuts and grains. When combined with other ingredients, these natural flavours can be enhanced, mellowed or contrasted, making it an incredibly versatile tea base.
In recent years, we’ve seen a surge in green tea blends. Twinings has a huge range of green teas on offer, including some beautiful premium loose leaf options, and even an indulgent dessert-inspired collection. Green tea is also the main ingredient in four of our Superblends. Here, green tea features alongside added vitamins and minerals to give you a delicious helping hand with your everyday wellbeing. Discover your ideal green tea match below...
Green Tea With Vitamin C
Zingy citrus perfectly complements the refreshing taste of green tea in the Twinings Defence Superblend. Grown in lush, verdant Chinese tea gardens, the green teas in our Superblends have a crisp and mildly grassy quality. This one features sunny lemon and lime, comforting echinacea root, and ends with a fiery kick of ginger. A beautiful, light and bright blend.
You might also be interested to hear that a 200ml cup of Twinings Defence contains 25% of the Vitamin C Nutrient Reference Value*. Vitamin C helps to support the normal function of your immune system, helping you to feel your best with each new day.
Green Tea With Maganese
Not just one, but two kinds of green tea feature in Twinings Match Superblend. You’ve probably heard of the powdered form of green tea, matcha. With a history spanning thousands of years, matcha still plays an incredibly significant role in Japanese culture. Matcha tea has been finely ground and has an intensely concentrated flavour that is best described as earthy.
By contrast, our green tea leaves have been pan-fired over a wok, lending them more roasted and toasted notes. Together they deliver a balanced green tea blend, uplifted here by zesty lime and juicy cranberry. We’ve also added Maganese, which helps contribute to normal energy-yielding metabolism. Each 200ml serving contains 25% of the Nutrient Reference Value for Maganese*. Enjoy one cup of our Matcha Superblend a day as part of a varied, balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle.
Green Tea With Biotin
To support the maintenance of normal skin and normal hair, this green tea has been blended with added Biotin too. In fact, a 200ml mug of Twinings Glow Superblend has 100% of the Biotin Nutrient Reference Value*.
For those looking to add a little shine to their daily routine, why not try this luscious mix of fruits and herbs? The sweetest of all our Superblend teas, Glow is bursting with ripe strawberry flavours and plenty of greens. Experience the cool finish of aloe vera, cucumber and a hint of mint.
Green Tea With Vitamin B6
Finally, our Boost Superblend green tea has been expertly blended to create the perfect mid-morning pick-me-up. Because green tea is made from the tea plant, the camellia sinensis, it contains naturally occurring caffeine. To this, we’ve added exotic guarana. If you’ve never encountered guarana, it is a very unique plant, resembling a human eye just as it starts to open. Guarana contains high levels of caffeine and has a distinctive character.
You’ll also find Vitamin B6 added into the mix here, which contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism. There’s 25% of your Reference Intake for Vitamin B6 per 200ml cup of Twinings Boost*. In terms of taste, this green tea is a lively combination of tangy mandarin and slightly tart apple.
*Based on an infusion brewed with hot water for three minutes.
