Twinings Tea – Steeped in Tradition.


Twinings Tea

I love a good British period drama. I also love a good historical novel, especially with a European flair. It seems to me that many of the world’s political problems along with society’s personal problems are discussed and solved over a good cup of tea. While I don’t drink traditional caffeinated teas, I do love a good cup of herbal tea. Nothings calms and soothes better than waiting for a cup to brew, and then relaxing to enjoy. The art of Tea drinking is a time honored tradition for good reason and Twinings Tea has the art of tea making down to a time honored science.

I recently received several varieties of Twinings Herbal Teas to sample and I was wowed! I’ve tried several herbal teas over the years, and I must say Twinings Teas are packed with flavor and just the right touch of each herbal combination. It seemed that I could taste the history behind the legendary British Tea House.

A few years ago I read a novel series based on the building of a Tea Dynasty. The woman behind the tea dynasty wished to own a tea shop in London one day, but was forced to flee to New York. There over the years her dream came to fruition. I found it interesting that her main competitor in obtaining the finest teas was the Twining Tea House.

Twinings Tea

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. Thomas worked tirelessly to bring his love of tea to the people of London. His hard work paid off and his success was positive.

After 300 years Twinings is still known to sell only the finest teas, herbs and infusions. Tea drinkers in more than 115 countries around the world enjoy 200 varieties of Twinings tea. Available in flavored and traditional Blacks, spicy Chais, refreshing Greens, flavorful Herbals, delicate Whites and savoury Oolongs – the choices are nearly endless. I found the website to be very interesing with loads of historical information about the history of tea making, as well as all that Twinings has to offer in their tea varieties.

I think Americans could benefit from adopting some of Britain’s tea traditions by slowing the pace of life enough to enjoy a soothing cup of tea along with conversation or lively discussion.
My personal favorite was the Camomile, Honey & Vanilla. It was soothing and expertly blended with pure camomile and the naturally sweet flavours of honey and vanilla and delivered a smooth, creamy aroma and velvety taste. A close second was the Nightly Calm® Tea with a blend of camomile, spearmint, lemongrass, natural spearmint flavor, linden, orange leaves, orange blossom, lemon myrtle, rosebuds, hawthorn berries. It prepared me for bedtime, and I easily drifted off to restful sleep.
