For decades Afternoon Tea has been all about the elegant surroundings, the delicate crockeries and the delicious food. But what about the tea?
Tea has been relegated as a side-lined supporting character, sometimes almost forgotten and often over brewed.
Here at Twinings’ historical store, we want to bring the focus back on the Tea.
To do so we have created a different Tea Experience, where our customers won’t simply enjoy delicious food with a decent cup of tea. We will to take them on a sensorial journey, from the welcoming cocktail, to the last food pairing.
All while we walk them throughout centuries of Twinings and Afternoon Tea history, showing them where the tea they are drinking comes from and how it is made, and why we paired it with that specific food, based on the art of food pairing with tea.
At the Strand we want to make the quintessential British experience of Afternoon Tea as memorable as possible for all of our customers.
