Do the British drink Twinnings brand of tea? I know nothing about teas and tea brands and the wife kind of bought 5 different boxes so we can try to incorporate tea in our lives.
@cj wait hold on
It's not twinnings?
@mdszy Nope. I was mispronouncing it as such, lol.
@cj never realized I was doing the same thing, lol
@cj I’m British, so raise my hand as an expert source for this question. Yes, we do drink Twinings.
@jamie Thanks for confirming. I was raised in the American South, so the only "tea" I really ever had was sweet tea which is 99% sugar. I guess I am also not yet used to the fact that in Europe, buying something that says "a London company" means it is the real deal, not the "actually-made-in-America-watered-down-so-the-American-market-can-handle-it" deal.
@cj It’s pretty good tea. Enjoy!
@jamie Thank you!
@cj Another data point from a Brit for you: yes, we do drink Twinings 😀 It's a common "everyday tea" brand along with Tetley, PG Tips and (my fave) Yorkshire Tea.
Don't believe their marketing that they're some kind of fancy tea, they're not 😁
@cj loose leaf tea is always better than teabag tea.
@ailurocrat @cj It's Marcela, grows all around our area here in southern Brazil.
@ailurocrat You can get the best of both worlds by buying these tea bags that you can fill with your loose leaf tea https://www.tea-direct.co.uk/products/disposable-drawstring-empty-fabric-tea-bags @cj
