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 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 Another data point from a Brit for you: yes, we do drink Twinings πŸ˜€ 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 😁

@ailurocrat WORD! Teabags are the instant coffee of tea. Sometimes in China the teabags are made of plastic (eek!)
@cj

@aran @cj show off... Lol... Seriously that looks yummy... What tea is it?
