We were invited for Iced Tea, Tea-Cocktails, Canapes, Live Music and an Iced Tea Demonstration this June 2015 at Urban Tea Merchant’s Garden Tea Party.

This exceptional collection includes TWG Tea classics from TWG Tea such as the French Earl Grey,Eternal Summer Tea, Moroccan Mint Tea and Darjeeling, as well as TWG Tea exclusive blends such as Sweet France Tea, Pink Flamingo Tea and Cocktail Hour Tea. Whether you are craving something sweet or in the mood for something light and tangy, TWG Tea’s Iced Teabag collection has carefully handpicked it all in this collection.

Luxuriously handcrafted with natural materials, every TWG Tea Iced Teabag contains the exact same handpicked, whole leaf teas retailed loose at TWG Tea Boutiques. The teabags are entirely hand sewn are free from metal staples and glue which are detrimental to the quality and flavour of the tea. Made of light, transparent silk and round in shape, reminiscent of the summer sun, TWG Iced Teabags are all handsewn and beautifully placed in TWG Tea packaging embossed with the name of the tea in gold lettering.
