Where there's tea, there's cake. We couldn't resist giving the iconic American Red Velvet cake the tea treatment, combining cocoa kernels, creamy coconut and sugared hazelnuts to recreate the taste of the rich red chocolate cake, complete with layers of frosting. Luscious liquorice, raspberries and blackberry leaves add a fruity sweetness, and hidden among the colourful cornflower petals you'll even find a hint of the authentic Red Velvet secret ingredient – can you guess?

Devilishly delicious red velvet cake
Try with buttery shortbread or creamy pastries
When foods were rationed during World War II, bakers used beetroot to enhance the colour of their cakes – the war ended in 1945 but the tradition lived on. No doubt countless Red Velvet cakes were baked for VE day, so 45 seemed a fitting number for this tea – it’s sure to add a celebratory touch to teatime.

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.
Our Fruit and Herbal Infusions
None of our fruit and herbal infusions contain the Camellia sinensis plant used to make tea. Instead, we've blended our own combinations of fruit, flowers, herbs and spices to create extraordinary new flavours, from jammy brews like Very Berry Crush to delicate evening infusions like Dreamtime.
