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.
