1886 was an era of innovation in London when Mr. Whittard opened his original shop. The first electric lights glowed in windows; the Underground was still being built and ran on steam. Inspired by the changes around him, Mr. Whittard invented this strong but smooth tea. He blended Assam, a new malty tea from India, with aromatic Keemun to produce a taste of the times.

Brew the perfect cup

Ideally warm the pot first with a splash of hot water. Use one teaspoon (around 2g) per cup and always use freshly drawn and boiled water. Allow to brew for 3-5 minutes according to taste. Can be drunk with or without milk.    

A note from Whittard

“I’m a big fan of our Mango & Bergamot – the coloured petals look lovely against the green tea leaves, and I like to store it in glass sweetshop jars on my kitchen shelf.”

- Marie Laure, Covent Garden Store Manager


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…

* * * * * A wonderful blend by Rob P. on 9th June 2015

Great tea! One of my favorites. It's strong yet smooth. I don't have tea until late in the morning or early afternoon. This is a perfect choice. I fill the teaball just under half and let it brew for 2 - 3 minutes. It comes out a rich amber that starts with a flavor that doesn't overwhelm and completes with a pleasant aftertaste. When I think of English tea, this is what comes to mind. Recommended highly!

This is my favorite tea. I just wish Whittard hadn't shut down its USA website, as the shipping charged by the UK site are pretty dear. However, I am not willing to forego my evening cup of 1886 blend!

* * * * * Refreshing and satisfying by James on 30th March 2012

My favourite Whittards tea. Lovely colour, deep flavour without any bitterness, satisfaction in every cup.

* * * * - Loose 1886 Blend by Ian on 23rd February 2012

This is a good one. Like a breakfast tea, but with an edge that's noticeably different and in a worthwhile way. Like the difference between a £5 white table wine and a £10 one: same stuff but just better tasting! Recommended.

So far every cup has made me go "Ahhhhh' after the first sip. That to me is the sign of a good tea. Love it!!
