I began my 'journey' with Twinings bags way back in 1974, when I was 12. The moved into their loose leaf tins: Earl Grey, Prince of Wales, Irish Breakfast, Lapsang Souchong -and the Darjeeling, the tin was of violet colour - guess it still is
It's been a long journey. And if it hadn't been for Twinings, I wouldn't be where I am today. Enjoying the gorgeous 2nd Flush Single Estate Darjeelings I get straight from India: from Thunderbolt Tea, Lochan Tea, Tea Emporium, Goldentips & Kho-Cha.
And their teas aren't actually that bad at all, Twinings I mean !!!
Thank you, Twinings, for having introduced me into loose leaf tea 36 years ago
