Lake Buena Vista in Orange County, Florida — The American South (South Atlantic)
English Tea Garden
Twinings Presents The
In 1706, Thomas Twining became one of the first individuals to introduce tea drinking to the English.
Word of this exotic, new drink quickly spread. Even eighteenth century English novelist Jane Austen and Charles II Earl Grey were Twinings tea enthusiasts. It wasn't long before Twinings exported teas to America, and the governor of Boston was one of the early American customers. Soon after, Queen Victoria appointed Twinings as supplier of teas to her royal household, as has every British monarch since.
As production increased around the world, tea prices became affordable to all citizens. Tea bags, decaffeinated, iced and herbal teas followed to popularize Twinings teas. Today, Twinings sells more than 400 tea blends.
Twinings pledged to create exceptional teas for everyone, a promise that has remained the company's cornerstone for more than 300 years.
