Add two teaspoons (around 4g) per cup and always use freshly drawn and boiled water. Allow to brew for 3-5 minutes according to taste. Best enjoyed without milk.
Dislike! by Mimi H on 7th July 2017
I really do not like this tea - the smell, taste, everything! The fellow reviewer who said that it smells like nail polish remover is correct. Unfortunately, I did not know that I could try before I buy, or get the refund/exchange, but at least I know for the future. Saying that, there are other teas that I have enjoyed from Whittards.
Disappointed by AJ on 28th May 2017
I was hoping to really love this tea but it was absolutely horrid. The smell when you open it is like nail varnish remover and the taste is not pleasant. Definitely won't purchase it again.

Not what it says by Rebecca Edmonds on 27th January 2017
Although the flavour is decent, its not too strong and doesn't taste like red velvet
Try it! by Jane on 6th November 2016
It is one of my favorite teas! I bought it in London and now it is my precious tea for comfatable afternoons. I brew it very strong, honestly I just leave the infuser in the cup the whole time. No need to add sugar :)
Surprised by Tom on 20th January 2016
Really surprised by the below reviews, I tried this tea in store and loved it. I brew it strong (7 minutes) as I like the strong taste and hence giving 4, not 5 stars as it took me a while to get the strength right. Really lovely coconut and chocolate flavours, better for my diet than actual cake!
Definitely try this one first. by wendy on 28th December 2015
Didn't like this at all! It sounded really nice and I have a sweet tooth, but it really wasn't nice. Tasted like watered down cake. Didn't smell nice either.. :(
try before you buy by John on 17th November 2015
this is very sweet and I personally could not stand the taste of it...definitely a try before you buy!
Mmmmm by Beth on 8th September 2015
I love this tea - like a cake in a cup, sweet and yummy.
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…
