From what we’ve heard, our founder Walter Whittard was something of a morning person - well, you’d have to be, to queue up for the water pump on the famous ‘Street of Tea’ in Aldwych, and be back in time to open the doors for the first clamouring customers.
Walter needed a strong blend to allow him to start the day in true Whittard spirit - and something he could sip at leisure on those rare opportunities when he was allowed to snooze past dawn.

Medium roasted for force of flavour while maintaining a silky smoothness, this is an instantly reviving, full-bodied blend which you might just find yourself drinking all day…
