Tea for the horticultural hedonist…

We like to think that Walter Whittard dreamed up this blend while taking a stroll in Chelsea Physic Garden one summer evening. Or perhaps it was during a visit to the Chelsea Flower Show? After all, the event was first held in Chelsea just two years after Walter Whittard set up shop.

You'll find the base of our signature White Peony tea allows for a light and elegant brew, while the sweet suggestion of rose and flavours of ripe summer fruits add a delightfully characteristic twist. And the whole rosebuds? Well, allow Walter to express the more floral side to his personality. It's ideal infused in our glass Chelsea Teapot - the rosebuds make for quite the afternoon tea showpiece.

Brew the perfect cup

Add two teaspoons (around 4g) of loose leaf tea per cup and use freshly drawn water heated to around 80 degrees. For the ideal temperature either pour the water before it reaches boiling point or allow the water to sit for 3-5 minutes after boiling. Allow to brew for 2-3 minutes according to taste. Best enjoyed without milk.

This is my absolute favourite tea I've ever tasted. My dear friend brought me a caddy full of this lovely tea after a trip to London, and I am so happy she did. It is very light and refreshing, I like it all year round.

I have been looking for a tea with no or low tannins.Tannins make me ill and I have really been missing a cup of tea.This tea was recommended and I tried a sample in the shop.Straight away I loved the taste slightly floral and very don't need to brew more then 3 minutes.I bought 2 pouches in the shop and have bought more on line with a teapot to make it in.

This is the one tea that my whole family loves. It is very elegant, smooth tea, without too heavy a fragrance. Great to drink hot or cold in summer, very enjoyable.

The Chinese invented paper, gunpowder and the compass. But their finest innovation has to be tea, reputedly first discovered by the emperor Shen Nong in 2737 BCE. Originally prepared as a medicinal brew, tea became a drink in its own right during the Han Dynasty (206 BCE – 220 CE), and today China produces thousands of different varieties ranging from black, green and white tea to oolong, puerh and yellow tea. If you’re looking for a bit of teatime reading take a look at Lu Yu’s ‘Tea Classic’: first written in 780 CE, it covers everything from cultivation methods to tea etiquette…

  • Cherry Blossom


    Green Tea with Flavouring

    Inspired by the Japanese sakura cherry blossom festival of early spring, we've layered a base of fresh Sencha green tea with flavours of sweet, ripe cherries and a sprinkling of pretty pink petals. One sip, and you're sitting under a candyfloss cloud of luxuriant blossom. Bright, sweet and sublimely springlike, we love it as a crystal-clear cold infusion.
