Twinings Tea Shop & Museum


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 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.

Don't miss the Loose Tea Bar where you can sample Twining's finest tea.

My 500th Yelp review!!

Prior to our travels to London, I was studiously reading the Twinings UK website to find out what teas were available there and not in America (and there are quite a few). So it was with great anticipating that we trudged through the spring rain to the Strand.
