Inspired by the famous Parisian confection, we've created a gloriously ornamental blend of green and black tea adorned with curlicues of coconut chips, pieces of caramel and a handful of patissier's sugared hazelnuts. Elaborate, perhaps. But with its creamy coconut freshness and vibrant edge of bright steamed Sencha, it's all about being sweet but chic. Now, we know what we'd suggest as the ideal taste pairing. Pierre Hermé and Ladurée are masters of the macaron, so be sure to stop by whenever you're in Paris - we'd recommend coconut and lime, or perhaps matcha and chestnut.
The Great Taste Awards have been described as the Oscars of the food world—so you can imagine we were pretty chuffed when our Petit Macaron won a coveted two star award this year. The judges praised its “good balance”, saying: “There’s a large caramel presence here, and gentle coconut.”

For a très Français 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.
Delicious Tea by Rembrandt Ovisaries on 14th December 2015
A light and interesting tea which goes well with heavy cakes, refreshing and sweet. However I have to wonder if someone made a mistake when naming this tea, A macaron is a meringue-based cookie made with almond flour, egg whites, and granulated and powdered sugar, then filled with buttercream, ganache or fruit curd, whereas a Macaroon is often composed of egg whites, sugar, and dried coconut, often piped with a star-shaped tip, and sometimes dipped in chocolate. Still! delicious either way
Lovely yummy tea by Christina Firth on 2nd November 2015
I adore this delicate sweet tasting tea. It's great to have with cake or pastries, but also very enjoyable at anytime. There seems to be some green tea in the mix, which lifts it a bit, and lots of other interesting ingredients, and it's perfect for putting in your most expensive tea set and just indulging. It's a real favourite of mine, and well worth trying, I am addicted to it!
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…
A tea fit for a queen, our Petit Macaron is the Marie Antoinette of our green tea collection. Notorious for the phrase 'let them eat cake', perhaps she should have said 'let them drink tea'? The French monarchy was abolished on 21 September 1792, and we've numbered our tea 21 to mark the end of an era for the decadent French royals
Flavoured Black Tea
A right royal blend of rich black tea, luxuriantly layered with creamy vanilla and crowned with a flamboyant flourish of red, white and blue cornflower petals. Well, we couldn't resistMore Details
Flavoured White Tea
No, you're not dreaming. This truly is a tea blended with pieces of real white chocolate. We've opted for a delicate Chinese white tea for the base and chosen white chocolate crafted from creamy cocoa butter, perfectly suited to melt into the infusion. As far as teas go, it's a bit of a masterpiece...More Details
Flavoured Fruit Infusion
Where there's tea, there's cake. We couldn't resist giving this classic American cupcake the tea treatment, adding a sprinkling of cocoa husks, creamy coconut and sugared hazelnuts. Rich red raspberry and blackberry leaves add a fruity sweetness, and there's even a hint of the authentic Red Velvet secret ingredient - can you guess?More Details
