Spice Imperial Loose Tea
Out of stock
Gather around the fire for strange tales from the spice markets of ancient trade routes – this classic Whittard blend balances a smooth, full-flavoured black tea with aromatic cloves, zesty orange peel, sweet Madagascan vanilla and a scattering of yellow safflower petals.
We love this spiced tea on dark winter evenings, and it's also rather good served iced with plenty of fruit on hot summer days.

Shortbread – the buttery texture is a perfect match for this sweet, spicy tea
Founded by a royal decree from Queen Elizabeth I in 1600, the East India Company was the largest importer of tea and spice during the British Imperial period. We’ve numbered this tea 16 to mark over four centuries of British tea drinking.

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.
Fully oxidised for a rich, robust flavour, black tea is the most popular type of tea in the western world – and for good reason. Its full body and depth of flavour make many black teas ideal for drinking with a splash of milk, while more delicate varieties like Darjeeling express a huge range of complex characteristics.
