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.

  • When to drink

    Throughout the day


Brew the perfect cup

Ideally warm the pot first with a splash of hot water. Use one teabag 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 bit of a traditionalist, so I tend to go for classic black tea blends like Earl Grey, or single origin varieties like Ceylon or Assam. Lapsang Souchong is a treat with hot cross buns.”

- Jamie, Oxford Street 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…

Lovely cup of tea, bought as an occasional treat, already having to reorder only after a week, even with the Assam and my ordinary tea buy from the supermarket!

I was expecting a really strong tea from the description and was somewhat disappointed by the result. However, it has quite a nice taste and is pleasant to drink in the early morning.

* * * * - Great for morning tea by Jetanat Chantrapitak on 16th January 2015

It is really a great tea, resembling English Breakfast in some way but milder. It is indeed lovely, but I personally prefer English Breakfast blend.

* * * * * lovely tea by Diana on 11th June 2014

I wish my very British mother were still alive to taste this lovely tea. Good, strong, malty tea.

* * * * * Proper Tea! by Lissie on 23rd February 2014

A great blend of teas in this teabag! A good strong, malty tea. A "proper" cup of tea!

I was really pleasantly surprised with these. Absolutely excellent and the subtle Keemun really make it!
