Twining’s Earl Grey Loose Leaf Tea

walker | May 15, 202105:18 PM     4

I make a pot of tea nearly every day, steep the leave for 4 minutes. I used to buy the tins from Cost Plus World Market but have been buying 6 big cans at a time from Amazon, better price, convenient.

I opened a can from my last order and the tea looked very different, very fine with a lot of debris falling through my glass filter. Before, the tea looked like little strings.

I called the distributor in New Jersey; customer service mailed me a new can and it looks about the same as the can just opened. I had a can from a previous order; I opened that one and the tea definitely looks better.

Some reviews on Amazon for this tea have the same complaint. What do I do? Change brands?
