Tea

When our founder Walter Whittard first set up shop in 1886, he brought two things to the tea table: a nose for quality, and a knack for innovation. Over a century later, our diverse collection of over 100 different teas extends from the timeless and traditional to rare single origin tea and exclusive blends. From the foothills of the Himalayas to the mist-shrouded mountains of Japan, we’re constantly seeking out the world’s most extraordinary tea gardens, and we’re leading the way with our inventive fruit and herbal infusions. Several of our all-time favourites are featured in our elegant range of tea gifts and taster sets - have a browse while you’re waiting for the kettle to boil…
