Twin­ings opened

Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - BEHIND THE HEADLINES -

Twin­ings tea room opened this year at 216 The Strand in Lon­don.

It was founded by Thomas

Twin­ing, a mer­chant who had learned his trade with the East In­dia Com­pany. Cof­fee houses were a com­mon fea­ture of Lon­don life, where men con­ducted busi­ness and gos­siped. Tea shops were now to de­velop a fe­male clien­tele for their gen­teel drink with its var­i­ous fine blends.
