A 300-year History
Twinings Tea began centuries ago in London, England with a man named Thomas Twining. In 1701, the young Twining began researching and studying various tea imports from the East India Company with the help of one of the company’s merchants, Thomas D’Aeth. In 1706, Twining opened up shop at Tom’s Coffee House, where he sold hot tea mainly to the upper classes who could afford the trending new beverage. In the years that followed, Twinings Tea became so well-liked that it was served to royal clientele. Today, Twinings Tea satisfies people of all stations at an extremely affordable, low price.
