All Tea is plucked from the Camellia Sinensis plant – depending on what time of year, how it is then treated, oxidized or not gives each tea its unique name, flavour and character and determines whether it is a black, green, yellow or white tea.
Put simply, blends are a
mixture of teas usually from different
origins. Twinings Everyday Tea blends strong African and Indonesian teas, with the rich malty taste of Assam as well as rare tea from Yunnan to create a unique taste. Creating a blend is
an art form, which comes only from years of knowledge and expertise of being a blender. Every harvest is different and ultimate blending skills are required in order to make sure your favourite blend always tastes as amazing as you'd expect.
This is the alchemical magic when boiling water meets your tea leaves. Our master blenders always include detailed instructions on the brewing time, allowing the tea to steep in the water for the perfect brew.
