I thought I knew a bit (at least) about Twinings but I learnt so much! They have been operating out of the same shop in London since they started in 1706 and have a huge variety of tea available; all sorts of flavours and blends. It takes five years to become a master tea blender and, once qualified, you get a special teaspoon engraved with your name on (I really want one of those!). I also didn’t know that Twinings originally created Earl Grey; that’s why theirs is called The Earl Grey.
We then tried their three new infused green teas: salted caramel, caramelised apple and gingerbread. I like green tea but (other than jasmine) hadn’t tried flavoured green tea before. The caramelised apple was my favourite; good job too as this flavour was made up in to a caramelised apple green tea martini. Delicious. I really enjoyed my trip to Twinings and I now have one of those glass teapots for making tea perfectly every time at home. I’m looking forward to making my own green tea martini too!
Thanks to Twinings for the invitation and samples. All opinions expressed are my own.
