We've transformed our Covent Garden store...

Set across two floors in the heart of Covent Garden Market, we’ve transformed our famous store into a glorious full-scale Emporium.

When our founder Walter Whittard first flung open the doors to his little store on Fleet Street in 1886, customers flocked to try his astonishing range of tea, coffee and cocoa. Walter wasn’t averse to sharing a cuppa over the counter, and today we continue the tradition in true Whittard spirit at our Covent Garden store...

We've filled the windows with lovely loose leaf teas, giving off the most wonderful scent and taking the market back to the old days of open air, fresh food stalls. 

Wander past the wall of tea boxes, to our circular tasting bar down in the vaults of the market. Here, you'll find a selection of freshly prepared loose leaf teas, ready for you to help yourself or perhaps ask one of our staff members to help you find your ideal brew. The centre of the tasting bar is planted with live camellia sinensis tea plants, adding a pop of green to the white walls of the market.

Help yourself to as many tasters as you'd like, at the tasting bar. But perhaps you'd like something to take with you? Head to the Brew Bar, or the Tea Bar at either end of the store, where our staff will craft your perfect tea, coffee or cocoa to go expertly served in our Whittard of Chelsea take out cups. 

If you'd like to recreate your perfect brew at home, our staff would be very happy to advise on the best loose tea or coffee beans for you. Plus, they'll help with brewing tips and the best equipment for you, if you'd like...
