Whisky Tea

Product Details

A tea to drink with neeps and tatties.


Specially for those who love a tipple, we've concocted a rich black tea laced with flavours of fine Scotch whisky, adding a highland fling of heather petals in true Scottish spirit. With its warm, rounded flavours and malty sweetness, this tea is as good as any hot-toddy - so you won't be needing that hip flask after all….

* * * * * Love it by Yahan on 8th July 2018

It is really great to add some milk. It will taste like Irish Cream.

* * * - - Strange flavour by Olesya on 23rd November 2017

Didn't like this too much, it's drinkable with a sort of a sweet flavour but wouldn't call it whisky.

* * * - - Flavour not very strong by Helen Lear on 18th October 2017

This is a pleasant tea, but nothing astounding. I was hoping for a really good kick of whisky flavour, but there is just a mild hint of whisky. It's mild and smooth, drinkable and kind of comforting. Seems more vanilla flavoured than anything else. I find a dash of milk brings out the flavour a little more, but overall quite disappointing.

* * * * * Amazing by Abbey Anderson on 2nd June 2017

This is the best tea! I do NOT like whiskey, but I was able to taste the tea in store before buying. The name is misleading as it tastes nothing like whiskey (god bless). However, the taste of this tea is very good, hints of vanilla.. honesty has its own flavor! Definitely recommend trying it!

* * * * * Great! by Janey on 11th April 2017

Simply love the taste! Adding some milk is even better! :D

* * * * * sweet and delicious tea by Julia Keller on 20th October 2016

I realy like this flavour ... vanilla? apple? and honey? Great Taste!

* - - - - Not even close to Whiskey by Harry on 18th June 2016

Although the flavour is interesting, the tea does not taste or smell anything like whiskey. I would have given it 4 stars if it had a different, not misleading name.

* * * * * Gorgeous and faintly sweet by Olivia on 7th April 2016

This has the smokiness of whisky without the sharpness that many dislike (I am not a whisky fan myself). It smells lovely and can be drunk without milk as it's actually a little bit sweet. However, adding a bit of lemon and honey also works well. I usually go into Whittard's for free hot chocolate samples and I tried this since I was intrigued, and just really loved it. On my third trip back I finally decided to buy it! My flatmates now all steal it from me.

* - - - - Not my cup of tea by Steven on 1st April 2016

This tea was less than impressive to me, I had images of smooth scotch and fresh black tea, sadly this tea just tasted, odd to me

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…

    Flavoured Blend

    This gloriously ornamental blend of green and black tea is adorned with curlicues of coconut chips, pieces of caramel and confectioner's sugared hazelnuts. Elaborate, perhaps. But with its creamy coconut freshness and vibrant edge of bright steamed Sencha, it's all about being sweet and chic.
