LAST IMPRESSIONS

 

Sometimes when I visit tea shops, I fear that I won't be able to take it all in for a lack of time. The Twinings Tea Shop, however, is full of rich tea history but small enough to experience it all. I left the shop feeling as though I was able to take a piece of England's history with me, a history with such deep roots. If I am ever in London again, I will stop by jusst to take a step back in time and to pick up some tea, of course.
