Twinings Dark Collection

The Dark Collection is a set of teas with a stronger flavour. The black tea base of these teas has gone through a long oxidisation process to give them a dark, rich taste. They’re balanced in flavour, smooth in texture with a real depth of character.

Every flavour in the collection has been selected to delight the taste-buds and show the versatility of tea, giving something for everyone. From the sweet toffee flavours of the Dark Caramel or the smoky seduction of Dark Grey, the Dark Collection has the perfect one for you.

Great with or without milk, but try with your favourite milk alternative to give the Dark Collection an extraordinary burst of flavour.

Twinings Dark Brew No.7

Dark Brew No.7

Tasting notes: Our strongest blend - malty & warm toast.

Beautifully golden and wonderfully rich. 

We explored the tea gardens of the world to find a way to intensify our most famous breakfast brews. The tea extract we discovered gives a boost of bitterness that we know and love in our tea, with a whole heap more flavour as well. 

Behind the number: We know that perfection takes time. This, our strongest brew, is the ideal cup of tea for any day, 7 days a week. So it's no surprise why we chose No.7. 

Alternative milk pairing: Oat milk.

Twinings Dark Caramel No.22

Dark Caramel No.22

Tasting notes: Sweet, toffee & golden syrup.

This is exactly how it sounds, a black tea with the smell and taste of caramel, perfect for those looking to cut down on their usual "milk and 2" cup of tea.

There are hints of toffee, the taste of molasses and notes of brown sugar, making this Dark Caramel the perfect guilt free indulgent treat for the middle of the day.

Behind the number: As of 2019, 22% of people in the UK added sugar to their regular cup of tea. This caramel flavoured tea is for that 22%; a tea that is already slightly sweet - just boil, brew and enjoy!
