The Twinings of London Story
In 1706, Thomas Twining began selling fine tea from an English storefront in The Strand, London. Today, Twinings continues to sell some of the world’s best teas from the original store and in more than 100 countries throughout the world.

“Twinings has been blending my family tea for years. Legend has it that my ancestor, the second Earl Grey, was presented with this exquisite recipe by an envoy on his return from China. He liked it so much, he asked Richard Twining to recreate it for him. Generations of my family have enjoyed Earl Grey tea and today, I am proud to continue this tradition with the tea celebrated throughout the world known as Twinings Earl Grey.”
-The Seventh Earl grey
At Twinings, we’ve been blending Earl Grey tea for nearly two centuries. But, sometimes, a little change can be good. That’s why we are excited to bring you Extra Bold Earl Grey – a modern twist to a classic tea. Starting with our original Earl Grey tea, we added more of its exquisite flavour to create a mouthwatering tea with a rich, vibrant taste.

To savour the full flavour of our teas, bring water to boil, and pour over the tea as soon as it reaches boiling. Over-boiling will cause oxygen to be reduced, making the tea taste “flat”. Brew 3 minutes or to desired taste.
*We do not recommend using a microwave to boil your cup of water.
Black tea, natural bergamot flavours with other natural flavours, lavender.
