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 In Zürich I buy tea at La Cucina, online at http://www.lacucina.ch/
I used to buy tea at Globus and Jelmoli, and I have mail-ordered from https://www.hemmi.ch/ and https://www.laenggasstee.ch, and I would have bought from https://www.schwarzenbach.ch/ but it just isn’t nearby.
I’m also nearly out of tea and expect to make a bigger purchase after Christmas. If you want to come over for tea tasting? 🍵
@kensanata I told the wife about this and she said "yeah!" excitedly. She may be lost browsing the La Cucina site now, haha.
@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 😁
