NO.615

NUMEROLOGY

The word "chai" means tea in many languages, deriving from the Mandarin Chinese "chá". The first English record of the word dates back to 1615 when an English merchant sent a letter to Macao requesting "the very best sort of chaw". We’re not sure if his request was met with success, but we’ve given this tea the number 615 nevertheless…

BLENDED

Ever since our founder Walter Whittard weighed out tea leaves behind his high mahogany counter, we've been experimenting with our own inventive blends. Today you'll find extraordinary creativity in our collection, from unique twists on classics like English Breakfast to more inventive blends laden with fruit and flowers.

Store in a sealed jar or tin, such as our Fill-Me-Up Tea Caddies.

Chai

Masala Chai – Hindi for "spiced tea" – has long been served by chaiwalas as a traditional Indian street drink. Tea was only later added during the British Raj, but the essential blend of spices and hot milk remained the same.
