We believe that how you make your tea is equally as important as the tea you use, so here are our tips:
Use freshly drawn cold water
Use water at a “rolling boil” (100?C)
Use 1 teabag per cup or 1 teabag per person in a teapot
Steep for 3 to 5 minutes (or to your taste)
This light, delicately citrus tea is best drunk without milk (a slice of lemon is great) or with just a touch of milk
… and for freshness every time, keep your tea somewhere cool, dark, dry and airtight!
For many people, Twinings simply is tea. Since we first started business in 1706, we've been using our blending expertise to create high quality teas that now, nearly 300 years later, are enjoyed in over 100 different countries across the world.
But it doesn't stop there. We constantly strive to innovate and create new beverages to meet consumer expectations and changing tastes. We now offer a range of drinks that should quench the thirst of all tea drinkers, no matter what their preferred blend is. From everyday, traditional and speciality teas, to fruit and herbal infusions, aromatic teas, healthy green teas and iced teas, we are delighting the taste buds of a new generation.
Did you know? Earl Grey is named after Charles, the 2nd Earl Grey, who was given a special blend of tea by a Chinese Mandarin. As this began to run out, the Earl asked Richard Twining to match it for him. From then on the blend became known as 'Earl Grey's' tea.
Twinings is committed to the ethical sourcing of tea and we do this through our membership of a growing international organisation called the Ethical Tea Partnership.
The Ethical Tea Partnership works to monitor conditions of tea production around the world to ensure that tea estates comply with the relevant laws and union agreements of their country in the areas of employment (including minimum age and wage levels); education; maternity; health and safety; housing and basic rights. The Ethical Tea Partnership strives to work in close partnership with tea producers and other stake holders to encourage open dialogue to ensure appropriate living and working conditions of tea estate workers and seek improvements where needed.
