Twinings Tea

Another memory from the Tea in London Tour 2007.
Nancy Reppert and I visited Twinings (and many other tea places) on our "free day" 
I chose to purchase this tin of tea because this blend  is not avalilable for sale outside the UK.

"Thank God for tea!
What would the world do without tea?
— how did it exist?  I am glad I was not born before tea."
~ Sydney Smith, 1771 - 1845 ~

We do like Twinings. And I have found their Lady Grey over here -- but perhaps the American version is different?

I love the tin, I sure Lady Grey is wonderful in it, and in your cup! Love for you to join me for Tea Time on Tuesdays. I also love the poem!

Hey, I've been there! (And it was heavenly!) I love that tin, and like you I bought teas I couldn't find back home. Wouldn't it be great if they opened tea shops here?

Twinings Tea is the best as far as I am concerned, I love Earl Grey.

I have heard so much about Lady Grey, but not had the pleasure of the taste. Love tea tins and this would be a nice one to add to the collection.
