What makes Twinings better than other blends?
Follow these simple steps to ensure that the tea you serve is perfect every time.
- Only use freshly drawn cold water, ensure that kettles or water boilers are de-scaled regularly and that teapots are spotlessly clean.
- Teapots should be warmed with hot water, which is then poured away.
- Use the recommended number of tea bags or one teaspoon of loose tea per cup. For one person use a 300mL tea pot, for two persons a 600mL tea pot is recommended.
- Water should always be freshly boiled and boiling when added to black tea.
- Leave to brew for 3-5 minutes before serving. Stir before serving.
- Pour a little milk into each cup before pouring the tea through a strainer if necessary, and sweeten as required.

The main difference is in the size of leaf. Loose-leaf tea is unable to be packed into regular teabags due to its initial size and the swelled size of the infused leaf, which can burst the bags. Other than this, at Twinings we try to ensure that the loose-leaf and teabag variants of a blend are sourced from the same tea type, but of a different leaf size. The smaller leaf has a larger relative surface area and tends to brew more quickly making it ideal for teabags.
