There’s nothing more I like than tea, well next to coffee that is. When Twinings sent me a can of their limited edition tea I made myself a cup or two. Perfect to drink on a lazy Sunday afternoon. All I needed was some scones. Too bad they didn’t send me that too.
A Tea Party for Her Majesty!
Twinings honors Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee with a special blend in commemorative tin cans
Twinings, the official tea of the British Royal Family since 1837, joins the world in celebrating the 60th year of Her Majesty, The Queen’s accession to the throne with a special blend of loose whole leaf tea in limited edition commemorative tin cans.
The world-famous English tea company has combined the rich, malty, second flush Assam tea from the Brahmaputra Valley in North Eastern Assam with the smooth, mellow Yunnan from South Western China for that perfectly blended blacktea – fit for a queen! For an additional touch of royalty, Twinings makes available the special commemorative blend in elegant pink, green and blue tin cans that provide you with a special keepsake from the Queen’s diamond jubilee year.
To enjoy the Twinings Diamond Jubilee Blend, add one teaspoon of loose tea leaves per cup of freshly boiled water. Leave to brew for 3-4 minutes. For best results, use a China or iron teapot, and enjoy with milk, sugar, honey or lemon, depending on your preference.
Crowned as Queen Elizabeth II in 1953, Elizabeth Alexandra Mary is the second longest serving monarch next to Queen Victoria. Her Majesty, The Queen and His Royal Highness Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, reign over the United Kingdom and 15 other Commonwealth realms, including Australia, the Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Canada, Grenada, Jamaica, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and Saint Lucia.
The celebration of Her Majesty The Queen’s 60th year in throne kicked off with a Diamond Jubilee Weekend last June with a big Jubilee lunch, the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant, a BBC Concert at the Buckingham Palace, a service at St. Paul’s Cathedral, a lunch at West Minister, a carriage procession to Buckingham Palace and a balcony appearance by Her Majesty. The year-long celebration is a tribute to Her Majesty, The Queen’s lifetime of duty to her people.
Granted the Royal Warrant for tea by Queen Victoria 175 years ago, Twinings has had the honour of supplying every successive British Monarch’s household with tea. The company has likewise celebrated countless milestones with the Royal Family through specialty tea blends, including the recent Royal Wedding of Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and the 50th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth’s reign.
The Twinings Diamond Jubilee Loose Leaf Tea Blend (100 grams) in limited edition commemorative tin cans is now available in all Santi’s outlets in the Philippines with a suggested retail price of Php 580.00.
