My mom is a massive tea drinker. Oddly, she is FInnish, though she has now lived in Canada well more than half her life - I say "oddly" because the Finns traditionally drink enormous amounts of coffee, but she doesn't touch it and adores tea. She said she got turned onto tea when she lived in England as a student and when first married to my dad - because of the chilly weather! She bought Twinings sometimes but I think also found it expensive in Canada. In England, it's kind of in the middle - not one of the cheaper teas, but there are many that are more expensive, too.
