From Twinings

From the box:
“Mary Twining was a woman ahead of her time. After the death of her husband in 1762, Mary was left to cope with a family and a flourishing business. During this time, tea was heavily taxed and often smuggled and adulterated. But Mary was a purist; she led the campaign to reduce the tax and proudly claimed to have sold only 100% pure tea. This blend of her favourite black tea and precious spices she so much enjoyed celebrates the remarkable accomplishments of Mary Twining, a fine businesswoman who ran the firm single handedly for 17 years – a remarkable achievement.”

Why can I no longer find this tea in New York City? Has production stopped on it or is for sale only in England?

It has been discontinued by the manufacturer.

Thanks for the response, Paul. It’s a pity that it has been discontinued as it was an excellent blend. Particularly liked it in the winter. Oh well, Lady Gray will have to do.

A good tea – but for a spiced blend, I expected a bit more of a kick. Spices were there – yes – but I expected a bit more presence and contrast between spices and tea. Good – but try adding one or two cloves to the cup for additional flavour.

This tea was given to me by my best friend I hadn’t seen or heardrom in nearly 40 years time. It was a perfect tea to relax with and remember old times. Great for cold winter days!
