When Thomas Twining opened his shop on London’s Strand in 1706, little did he know that we would still be supplying some of the world’s finest tea to this date. Just like Thomas, our passion still burns brightest for loose leaf, the ultimate for the enthusiast to savour the subtle flavours of the freshest and finest teas and infusions. 2012 1st flush darjeeling, THURBO Garden Close to the Nepalese border and with a diverse range of altitudes between 3000 and 6000 feet, the Thurbo Garden produces some of the very best teas in the world. This fine example has the classic soft muscatel character and well defined honey notes expected of a Darjeeling tea, but also surprises with a stronger, fuller flavour.
