Every sip of Twinings® tea is a marriage of experience—yours and ours. Our expert blenders source only the finest leaves cultivated to our exacting standards by trusted growers around the world. From these tea gardens we hand-select the leaves that will shape your next Twinings moment.
Select a Tea Type
Black, the world's most common variety, are fuller-bodied and have the strongest flavours. Black tea is made by exposing enzymes in the tea leaves to oxygen through a special process that turns the leaves from green to brown. Of the major tea types, black teas undergo the longest process of oxidation.
Green teas aren't oxidised at all, which lets the tea leaves retain their green colour and keep their very delicate flavour. To prevent the freshly picked leaves from oxidising, green tea leaves are either pan fried or steamed to kill active enzymes in the leaf before rolling.
Oolong teas are given the same treatment as black teas, but with a much shorter fermenting time. Oolong teas have a rich, red colour and flavours that range from light and fragrant to dark with a taste of toasted caramel.
Spicy and rich, Chai is in a class by itself. We expertly blend our finest black tea with the flavours of cinnamon, cardamom cloves and ginger to create a vibrant tea with a warm, soothing aroma and fresh, zesty taste.
Herbal "teas" do not come from the Camellia sinensis plant, thus they do not contain tea. They are commonly made from infusions of herbs, spices, fruits, and flowers. They are naturally caffeine-free and low in calories.
Red "teas", or Rooibos, are herbal infusions made from the leaves of an African red bush. Red tea is naturally caffeine-free. The leaves are gently oxidised to produce their distinctive reddish-brown colour and pleasantly sweet flavour.
White tea comes from the tender, young leaves and unopened buds of the tea plant. White tea leaves are picked early and barely processed, which helps them retain their delicate flavour and aroma.

Twinings Decaffeinated Teas are decaffeinated using ethyl acetate. The solvent used, ethyl acetate, is a combination of vinegar acid and the ethyl alcohol that comes from the fermentation of sugar cane. The tea leaf goes through a process in which it is moistened with water and/or steam. The moistened tea then comes into contact with ethyl acetate, which selectively absorbs caffeine and removes it from the tea. Any excess ethyl acetate is eliminated from the tea as it dries. The use of ethyl acetate as a decaffeinating agent has the full approval of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Decaffeination removes most, but not all of the caffeine from the tea.
