After looking at the statues above the doorway, Mr Monkey scampered into the Twinings shop, and ran to the back where they have a little exhibition about their history. Twinings have been trading from this narrow shop on the Strand since 1706, and Mr Monkey let his humans buy some coffee on the way out. The statues over the door were supposed to show that tea originally all came from China.
You can read about all about Twinings at the Twinings of London website.
