Cucumber? In a tea? It might not be the first combination which springs to mind, but the results are really rather delicious. We’ve blended refreshing peppermint leaves, sweet apple and pretty blue cornflower petals, adding juicy cucumber for an eye-bright finish. It’s perfect for hydrating in the summer heat.
The Great Taste Awards have been described as the Oscars of the food world—so you can imagine we were pretty chuffed when our Cucumber Mint won a gold star at this year’s awards. The judges described it as “lively in the mouth”, and recommended drinking it “with fresh sliced cucumber, or just the peel, and a sprig of mint.”
Refreshing cucumber with a menthol hit
Enjoy this unique flavour by itself
Simply made for afternoon tea
Add one teaspoon (around 2g) 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.

Fantastic tea that can be re brewed. It's incredibly refreshing and great at anytime of the day.
Ever since our founder Walter Whittard weighed out tea leaves behind his high mahogany counter, we’ve been experimenting with our own inventive blends. The Chinese were the first to try blending tea leaves with fruits and flowers and it takes time, skill and imagination to master the art. It’s all about creating the perfect balance of flavours: we blind taste at least 20 different variations before settling on the perfect recipe. Just as some musicians have perfect pitch, an expert tea blender needs to have some pretty perceptive tastebuds…
Cucumber sandwiches are of the utmost importance in Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest. Wilde was born in 1854, so we've numbered this tea 54 in his honour
Intriguingly creamy, this delicate flavoured oolong from China's Fujian Province boasts a buttery sweetness comparable to caramel. With its floral aroma and rich layers of flavour, there's no tea quite like it what's more, the tightly curled leaves can be brewed multiple times, so it's perfect for enjoying over the course of a long afternoonMore Details
Blending a base of pure white tea with creamy coconut and cocoa kernels, this white chocolate truffle of a tea should really be classed as confectionery. Blended with sweet blackberry leaves, you'd never guess it was sugar-freeMore Details
Bah, humbug! That's what we say to all those who think that a naturally sugar-free tea is no match for a bag of sweets.
