About Twinings

The first Twinings shop. By Laika ac, CC BY 2.0
Twinings of London, typically referred to as just Twinings, is a tea company based in England and currently owned by Associated British Foods. Twinings was founded by Thomas Twining, who opened the first known tea room in 1706. Twinings also owns the tea brand Jacksons of Piccadilly, which originally started as a separate company. Twinings is one of the founding members of the Ethical Tea Partnership, in which it is still active.

Twinings sells both loose tea and teabag tea, and focuses on black teas, although it also sells some herbal teas and a few other varieties of tea.

In November of 2009, the company decided to close one factory in the UK and scale back a second, moving more operations to Poland and China, in order to benefit from cheaper labor, placing 400 people out of employment. These workers are unionized and have been fighting the move, working together with Andover's local government.[1][2]

In New Zealand, Twinings brand tea has been manufactured and marketed by Bell Tea Company since 1989.

Picture of Chai (formerly Indian Spiced Chai)

I got a coupon from Twinings to replace some decaffeinated Earl Gray, which was really quite awful, and I decided to spend it on this.

The spices were a tad different than other chai tea bags I'd had before. I've had chai in restaurants and have bought tea bags in the Indian sector of a nearby city, and the spices i...

Cup at home. Pours nearly clear light copper brown with no sediment. Clear but mild aroma of black tea, with very mild hints of caramel. Smooth but bitter flavour of black tea, ending on a dryish note. This is my staple black tea, which I drink several times a day when I don't have the time to enjoy more sophisticated ...

Earl Grey Decaffeinated

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: ?????
Nov. 10th, 2019

Twining's US uses a less-health-hazardous method for extracting caffeine from tea. I commend them for that, in principle. In practice, this is a terrible way of extracting caffeine because it takes all of the flavor along with it. There is a better way of doing it that is both less health-hazardous and maintains flavor...

Nightly Calm (Bedtime Blend)

Style: Herbal Tea – Region: Blend
Aug. 8th, 2019

The flavor of Nightly Calm is mostly spearmint with a hint of chamomile. The spearmint is nice and doesn't taste grassy or woody. The chamomile is mostly detectable as a faint richness and I don't taste any of the other ingredients.

Pure spearmint is hard to find as a bagged herbal tea and the brands that sell it ar...
