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.

Christmas Tea

Style: Chai / Spiced Tea – Region: Blend
Nov. 3rd, 2018

If this were all Christmastime had to offer, I'd say, fast-forward to the new year. Fortunately, it's not. "Christmas Tea" is one of the better Twinings black teas I've tried, but...
1. That's not saying much, and
2. It's a very poor approximation of Bigelow's much richer, more-flavorful Constant Comment blend. ...

Earl Grey Decaffeinated

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: ?????
Oct. 16th, 2018

A weakly-flavored, not very aromatic tea experience. If you're looking for a very mild, decaffeinated tea that's easy on the stomach, this is a good choice, but if you were hoping for intense flavors, maybe try something else.

Picture of English Breakfast Decaffeinated

Like the others who reviewed this, I was surprised that it tastes nothing like the regular Twinings English Breakfast. I remember that tasting more woody and malty, with a bit of the usual Assam dried fruit note. This has some slightly tangy tropical fruit notes that make me think of Keemun, but it also has this weird ...

Picture of Mixed Berry (formerly Four Red Fruits) Black Tea

Nice taste - better than I was expecting! It's better than Twinings other berry flavored tea's, for sure. I can taste the black tea, but still wish I could taste it more. I like a noticeable added flavor, but still a dominant tea flavor, for flavored tea's. Nothing great, but not bad.

Lemon Twist

Style: Lemon Black Tea – Region: ?????
Jul. 2nd, 2018

It's good, but it's just a very simple lemon flavor. The black tea flavor is too weak. Tastes a little too artificial. Twinings has better lemon/citrus flavored tea's, for sure.
