FROM GARDEN TO POT
Have you ever wondered where your favourite Twinings tea comes from? Then, join us on a fascinating journey that begins in the lush green tea gardens of distant lands...
Have you ever thought about what's in a teabag? Where it came
from, or why it tastes the way it does? We think everyone should
know the journey their tea's been on. So pop the kettle on, fill up
your favourite cup and have a read...
Has anyone ever asked if you'd like a cup of Camellia sinensis
sinensis or Camellia sinensis assamica? We didn't think so! But if
you're reading this, you've probably had quite a few of them as
they are the Latin names for the two main varieties of tea plant.
Sinensis is Latin for Chinese and Assamica means Assamese, in case
you were wondering!
sinensis: Can survive in really cold temperatures, mainly
grown in China, Japan and Darjeelinga and grows between 3−5m
assamica: Prefers warmer and more humid weather, is grown
mostly in North East India and can reach a height of 18m.
As they can grow to quite a height, tea plants need plenty of
space, so are laid out in rows about a metre apart in 'tea gardens'
or 'tea estates'.
We are so excited to be show casing our New Green Tea range,
