Twinings and Waitrose - Tea and Trifle Fit for a Celebration
Tea and trifle. Ah, is there a better way to celebrate having a day off for the Royal Wedding than tucking in to Heston Blumenthal's Royal Trifle created for Waitrose, whilst sipping on some of Twinings Commemorative Blend tea? It's almost as if you were there.
The trifle is actually a combination of Eton mess and trifle, with strawberry and Champagne compote, saffron cream, amaretto biscuits, meringue, and topped with confetti of dried strawberries, dried sugared rose petals and caramelised almonds. For my money, I'd like to see this on the shelves again for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee next year. Delicious.
Twinings' Commemorative Blend is a white Earl Grey, with white tea leaves infused with bergamot and rose petal flavour. Very nice. Good to see white tea on the shelves too.
Good luck to the couple from all at Tweed Towers.
