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.

Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
TeaBy Fordy from Chelsea on 12/11/2018Gorgeous lightly spiced blend that tickles the back of my throat with sensational pleasureGorgeousBy Nik from Ely on 12/07/2018This is a gorgeous, warm spicy tea- chai was my favourite but this beats it hands down. Its aroma is warm, subtle and enticing and the taste doesn’t disappoint - as so many can. Perfect for anytime and is great with milk.Spice Imperialon 08/19/2018I am from America. I visited for the first time in 2012 and fell in love with this tea! I loved it so much I brought it home with me then and ever since I have been importing it. I love the spice, the orange, everything about it. I will continue to order this!Regal Blendon 05/17/2017Such an unique and delicious flavour! Definitely my favourite tea from Whittard.BeautifulBy Aragon from London on 05/10/2019Lovely fragrant aroma - it smells lovely like spiced vanilla.
I really enjoyed this tea! Its spicy, slightly citrus and warming. Its subtle but interesting enough to enjoy.
I haven't tried it with milk yet - it tastes great as it is.
The only reason it isn't a 5 for me is because I prefer more dominant flavours.
Overall, I would buy again and recommend.

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.
