Red Velvet

Product Details

The ultimate tea and cake combo.

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?

* * * - - 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.. :(

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…
