Our story began in 1886 when Walter Whittard opened his first tea and coffee store on London’s Fleet Street.
His philosophy was to always ‘Buy The Best’, sourcing the highest quality teas and coffees from around the world and blending them to his customers’ specifications.
Today – over 125 years later – we still remain true to Walter’s founding philosophy. From one little shop on Fleet Street we continue to grow, sharing our innovative range and specialist knowledge across our UK stores, overseas and online. We’re still the blending and tasting experts, offering you something truly unique, wherever you come into contact with us.
• We have 130 varieties of tea, and still blend our own teas and infusions, just as Walter did.
• We are one of the few places that will grind freshly roasted coffee beans to your individual tastes.
• We have over 18 varieties of luxurious hot chocolate, tempting chocolate lovers with everything from White Chocolate and Strawberry to Chilli.
