The Twinings story began in 1706, when Thomas Twining opened the House of Twinings in the old Tom’s Coffee House on London’s Strand. By 1717, Thomas’ shop evolved into London’s very first exclusive tea shop, then called The Golden Lyon. In an age where coffee shops were prevalent, Thomas worked tirelessly to bring his love of tea to the people of London. The response was overwhelmingly positive.
More than 300 years later, the vision of one man – to sell only the finest teas, herbs and infusions available – remains. We still sell tea from Thomas’ original shop, but now tea drinkers in more than 115 countries around the world enjoy 200 varieties of Twinings tea. Available in flavoured and traditional Blacks, spicy Chais, refreshing Greens, flavorful Herbals, delicate Whites and savoury Oolongs – the choices are nearly endless.
I have always enjoyed the selection that Twinings offer.
This Earl Grey is one of my favorites. It has just the right amount of bergamot blended with black tea. It is a lighter strength of tea, as you can see on the box they give you a Leaf rating for strength and this one is spot on for me. I also like their Lady Grey Tea.
You can purchase Twinings Teas in loose leaf form as well as the teabags. The smell of orange was perfectly balanced with the black tea. I let it steep for 3 minutes and the aroma was really nice and the taste, always consistently smooth.
Great for the afternoon break! and since it is just a beautiful day…here’s a treat too!
