With its distinct notes of citrus, this blend evokes playground memories of the poem, “Oranges and Lemons says the Bells of St Clements”. Thought to refer to the Church of St Clement Danes, we’ve given this tea the number 920 after the date 31 March 1920, when the church’s bells first rang out the famous nursery rhyme.


Ever since our founder Walter Whittard weighed out tea leaves behind his high mahogany counter, we've been experimenting with our own inventive blends. Today you'll find extraordinary creativity in our collection, from unique twists on classics like English Breakfast to more inventive blends laden with fruit and flowers.

Store in a sealed jar or tin, such as our Fill-Me-Up Tea Caddies.
