Since 1706, Twinings has been at the forefront of the tea trade – blending and innovating, improving the design and packaging of tea. Customers in more than 100 countries enjoy Twinings products. And not just the popular favourites – products such as fruit and herbal infusions, aromatic teas, and iced teas are delightful to the taste buds. These fresh flavours reflect a worldwide trend towards a healthier and more varied lifestyle.
The new flavours are as successful as the traditional ones because Twinings prepare them using skills acquired through three centuries of experience. After quenching thirsts for so many generations, no one knows better than Twinings how to deliver a drink that's in perfect condition. In 1972 Twinings became the first tea company to win a Queen’s Award for Export. Every package of Twinings tea bears Her Majesty's seal.
Loose leaf tea is self-explanatory by name. Larger tea leaves indicate a longer brewing time period, although the tea leaves we use are smaller than most in loose blends. Because of the fine size, our tea strainer is also recommended for brewing loose leaf tea.
English Tea Store brand loose tea is made in India, Sri Lanka, or Kenya and packaged in the US in our Pittsburgh warehouse. While not all of our bagged varieties come as loose tea, we offer multiple kinds of English breakfast, Earl Grey, white tea, flavored black tea, Assam, Darjeeling, and gunpowder green tea in 8 oz. pouches. In addition, we carry loose tea from brand names like PG Tips, Twinings, and Taylors of Harrogate.
