Oh, the soft summer fragrance of freshly cut roses. Selecting whole pink rosebuds for the purest fragrance, this elegant infusion is all about sweet simplicity: you could call it an English country garden in a cup.
There are few flowers more delicate than a velvety rosebud - we'd suggest they're best brewed lightly, to produce a sweet, rounded taste and a gently refreshing finish. A glass teapot is lovely for watching the petals infuse in the water, and you'll also find the rosebuds work rather well in recipes - why not try your hand at creating a sweet rose syrup? You'll find it goes down a treat in a champagne cocktail.
A sublime bouquet of summer roses
Turkish Delight for the ultimate hit for rose lovers
For romantic early evenings
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.

Even though they can be used on their own, I prefer to add a few rose buds to other delicately tasting teas. Rose buds add unforgettably fragrant smell. Not to mention looks stunning in a see-through tea pot. Definitely a money-worth buy.
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…
Rosebud' was the last word to be heard from of Charles Foster Kane, of Citizen Kane fame. The cult film by Orson Welles is 119 minutes long, so we've numbered our Rosebud tea 119
Flavoured Fruit Infusion
Naturally caffeine-free and comfortingly sweet, this may well be our dreamiest tea to date. Combining herbal rooibos with flavours of velvety apricots, creamy vanilla and a spoonful of honey for good measure, it's a tea to enjoy like a midnight feast.More Details
Flavoured Herbal Infusion
Ah, the joys of a stroll in the garden This herbal blend is a real treat for anyone with green fingers, and all those looking for a tea a little out of the ordinary. We've blended vibrant Yerba Mate with fragrant lavender, sweet Lemon verbena, and even an unusual addition of bamboo leaves. Yes, it's experimental. But it works.More Details
White Tea with Flavouring
We like to think that Walter Whittard dreamt up this blend while taking a stroll in Chelsea Physic Garden one summer evening The delicate taste of our signature White Peony tea is perfectly matched with floral fruit flavours, while whole pink rosebuds make for quite the afternoon tea showpiece. Super with scones and strawberry jam.More Details
