Create the blend of your dreams with our team of Tea Experts. We’ll help you find your perfect balance of premium single-origin loose leaf, or experiment with fruits and flowers.

You’ll gain insight into Twinings’ rich blending heritage, and leave with your own exclusive blend to take home with you. A beautiful wedding favour or a memorable gift.

HERBAL MASTERCLASS

With so many teas on offer, it’s easy to overlook the herbal options out there. But you can experience a full spectrum of flavour as we showcase seven carefully selected herbs.

Be transported from the pyramids of Ancient Egypt, to the botanic gardens of England, as we explore a millennia-old tradition. What exactly is a herb? Where do they come from? And how have myths and legends changed our ideas about herbs?

After this two-hour session, we hope you’ll view the humble herb garden a little differently!
 
Please note that our in-store masterclasses are not currently available.

Take a private tour of the world’s oldest tea shop with an After-Hours Shopping Experience and tea cocktails. Plan a themed VIP event at 216 Strand, or a location of your choice.
