Twinings Tea Honors Her Majesty’s Diamond Jubilee
A Tea Party for Her Majesty!
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.
Twinings of London, the official tea of the British Royal Family since 1837, honors the 60th year of Her Majesty with a special blend of loose whole leaf tea in limited edition commemorative tin cans. 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 Special Blend
The rich, malty, second flush Assam tea from the Brahmaputra Valley in North Eastern Assam combined with the smooth, mellow Yunnan from South Western China makes for a perfectly blended black tea fit for a queen. 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.
For an additional touch of royaltea, 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. The gold ornate design mirrors the Queen’s lifestyle throughout the years.
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.
