For someone who never ever used to drink tea, I now drink quite a bit.
I try to be a little adventurous too and will happily try a fruit tea or two.
I've always wanted to visit the Twinings Flagship store in London and Saturday gave me that perfect opportunity.
One thing I will say is that if you are not specifically looking for the shop then it can be easily missed, it is only a small shop front but what a grand shop front it is.
I loved the tiled floor just outside the door, very posh. I wonder how old it is?
The smell inside was just divine. And the choice of all the different types of tea was incredible.
I made a couple of purchases but had to restrain myself from making many more. A box of Vanilla tea and a box of Liquorice tea for my Mum. (How amazing are their bags, I love their illustrations)
We got there very late in the day (not long before closing) so had we of been there earlier I probably would have sampled some of the teas and in which case would have ended up paying out a lot more money but in all honestly its an excuse to go back again in my eyes. They had a couple of chocolate teas, now that is definitely something I need to try.
I'm always open to trying something new so if you have a favourite I'd love to hear about it.
