English Breakfast is our most famous tea.
We carefully pick the finest tea from 5 different areas to make this famous blend, each with its own special features.
Tea from Malawi and Kenya offers briskness and copper-red shade, while Assam provides complete body and taste.
The softer and more elegant tea complements the robustness from areas from Indonesia and China.

Thomas Twining quickly built a status for selling only the best teas – teas that well-heeled London ladies were eager to serve in their drawing rooms.
The Thomas Twining Son, Daniel, was the first Twining to export tea. His ledgers present that in 1749, Twinings tea being sold to America.
The Governor of Boston was a customer, and his tea seems to have made it to the USA to a mishap.
During the well-known Boston tea party in 1773, American patriots dumped English tea. Anyway, as a famous writer noted: “It was not Winnings tea the Boston rebels tossed into the sea.”
In 1762, after Daniels premature death, his second wife, Mary Little, took charge of the Twining family business.
In 1771, although he was just twenty-two years of age, Richard Twining took over from his mother. His elder brother, John, joined him in the following year.
Now in its 3rd century, Twinings operates its global business from the UK.
Twinings still sells tea in London at 216 the Strand, probably the world’s first coffee shop and dry tea.
Twinings is honoured to grip Royal warrants at Appointment to HRH the Princess of Wales and HM The Queen.
