Learn about the history of Tom Twining’s shop and get an introduction to every type of tea.
The ornate front of this British tea institution nestles between buildings at the end of Fleet Street. If your eyes don’t drag you there, your nose certainly will: the fresh, aromatic smell of every type of tea leaf lingers around the doorway, which has stood in this spot since 1706.
Inside, dishes of tea are laid out ready for you to touch, taste and smell, or you can amble over to the tasting area at the back of the shop, where friendly staff will add hot water to your chosen samples. The tiny museum will tell you everything you need to know about the history of Tom Twining’s shop, before you pick up some souvenirs for the pot at home.
