A wonderful tea for the Christmas season. Our Chrismtas Tea is a spiced malty black tea that has been expertly blended with warming, spicy, Christmas flavours off safflowers and orange peel. Enjoy with or without milk for a delicious festive treat.

The caddy depicts a wintery scene in the heart of London where Twinings was founded in 1706. When Thomas Twining opened his Golden Lyon shop at 216 Strand, it was the first of its kind and London's love affair with tea started to blossom

4) 2019 First Flush Darjeeling Loose Leaf Caddy

Each year in Darjeeling, the Holi Festival of Colours signals the arrival of Spring. At Chamong, four to five thousand feet up in the misty foothills of the Himalayas, estate owner Ashok and his family watch and wait for the right time to pick the year’s first harvest of young Dajeeling tea leaves. And as the mists clear ahead of the rains, they set to work, especially for Twinings.

Darjeeling tea leaves grown this high and plucked this young are simply unique. We love the bright emerald twists and abundance of silvery tips; the amazing intensity of fresh, fragrant flavours in the honey-coloured liquor and the lingering finish. Twinings First Flush Darjeeling tea has a lovely sweetness and quality that is characteristic of Chamong Estate, from whom we’ve been buying tea since the 1880s.

This is a 2019 limited edition.




The jar contains the ultimate selection of our Loose Leaf Pyramid teas and infusions. Packed with flavour and taste, it is bound to create a stir in your cup every tea time.

These particular blends are specially designed for cafés and tea rooms so keep your eyes peeled if you'd like to enjoy these lovely blends on the go.

Presented in a large ribbed glass storage jar with a stainless steel lid beautifully designed in Italy.



6) English Morning Signature Blend Loose Leaf Tea Gift Box

English Morning is a blend of second flush golden tip Assam and a low-grown Ceylon with silver tips and black leaves.
