It was at these premises in 1706 that the famous tea company R Twining was founded. Originally a tea shop, it now houses a small museum showing the history of Twinings and a tea shop. It is the oldest shop in the City of Westminster, trading on the same site with the same family and the same product, tea and coffee.

Ok so it doesn't have the sun shining out of it's backside and Stephen Fry isn't on hand to give you a cup of tea and sit down but it does what it says on the tin and it does it well enough. They sell tea. Lots and lots of different types in different arrangements including their 15p individual bags so you can try some interesting teas. I managed to find some camomile and spearmint tea here...more
