Twinings tea might be a staple for some, but I only just recently noticed it on the shelf after reading this book. I've been a Tetley girl most of my life, but i'm really loving Twinings English Breakfast blend lately (shhh... don't tell my Scottish Granny).
Did you know that Twinings has been the official supplier of tea to the royal household since 1837? With a history that long, you can only expect a great cup of tea. At home I use a teacup and saucer, which somehow seems to make all the difference (even if i'm not dining with the Queen), and I've been experimenting with all kinds of recipes for hosting afternoon tea. There's so many classic treats and savoury bites to accompany a little break in the day... I almost feel like baking my way through the whole book Julie & Julia style.
What is your favourite kind of tea?
