Twinings Traditional Afternoon Tea

I am disappointed by all the teas discontinued by Twinings. Just finished last tea bag of Traditional Afternoon as was one of my favourites but have just found not available any more. It was same when they removed their Irish Breakfast loose leaf tea in Auatralia. I rang to ask why and was talked down by the lady on the switch. So where can we buy Traditional Afternoon Tea? Do we have to pre purchase 5000kg from an ex employee so as we can distribute it to all the followers? Any ideas? Many Thanks Show details

Still missing this tea

This tea was like the coffee of teas - I still miss it so much and wish it would come back. It had a depth to it that others lack. There are so many similar tasting breakfast teas and even the strong ones aren't a patch on this.

Afternoons are not the same without the Traditional Afternoon Tea

It is so sad that this has just disappeared as it was the most perfect afternoon tea I have ever had. Please let it return. Good marketing and advertising would assist sales if that was the issue!!

The start of my day: 2 cups, each with 2 Purple Goodness bags. BUT IT'S DISAPPEARED!

Even though it's been MONTHS since I've found any of the glorious Purple Goodness on any of the usual shop shelves, I still hope for its return. My local ABC Radio (Perth) this morning raised its disappearance, and it is being missed by so many of us at a cellular level of ache. There are 2 other Twinings teas which come close....but it's not the same! Show details

Devastated. Please, I need my tea!

I love this tea. My favourite, my friend. Where is my purple tea?
Nothing else like it. I am bereft.
Beautiful warm red colour. Strong comforting flavour.
At least I have a few more boxes at relatives' houses which I bought for my visits. It'll last me a month or two when I collect them together. Show details

Bring bac Twinings Traditional Afternoon tea - please!

Can't believe it has disappeared from the shops. It was my favourite tea. Nothing better than having a Traditional Afternoon tea to finish the day! I am missing it's unique flavour. The others are nice, but this one hit the spot every time. Bring it back! Show details

I need my favourite tea back !

I really can't state how much I miss this tea. Twinings Morning Tea is just not cutting it. Even got desperate enough to see if I could buy it online from the UK. No luck unfortunately. Please bring it back.

Please bring back this tea!

This is the BEST tea by far! I can't believe it has been discontinued!
Everyone in our large family is very disappointed. Please bring back this favourite tea!
It seems a lot of people are also upset that they can no longer buy this tea.
Twinings - this must tell you something!

Very enjoyable satisfying tea

I graduated to Twinings Traditional Afternoon Tea after growing up on Tuckfields Tynee Tips Tea which then combined with Billy Tea until they both became just a memory. I'm terribly disappointed to find that Twinings 'purple box' has now disappeared as well. I wish I had stocked up. I would often pay $13 from Woollies and was thrilled if I ever got it half price or discounted. Please bring this much enjoyed product back. Nothing else is quite the same. Show details

This one is OKish but the Purple was THE BEST

I can't believe Twinings discontinued their best tea. Been waiting a few months now for it to come back. I guess we'll need to start looking at other teas. It was great while it lasted Show details

Best tea

Twinnings afternoon tea (purple pack) is definitely the best tea I have had. Since it disappeared I’ve tried all of the others and there is no comparison - please bring it back Show details

I too like many obviously, am extremely disappointed that Twinings would discontinue arguably their best variety (Traditional Afternoon tea).

If indeed they have done so as a result of Woolworths and Coles discontinuing the line, then shame on you Woolworths and Coles, for making such a poor decision, and start listening Twinings, to no doubt thousands of bitterly disappointed customers.

Yes, Twinings said on April 5th on their Twinings Australia Facebook page that they have discontinued it. It was one of my very favourite teas


Which tea is similar the twinges traditional afternoon?


I absolutely love this tea, but can't find it anywhere....not since the beginning of Covid. Did that have anything to do with it? Please, please...please bring it back!
