Afternoon Tea is a Whittard classic and one of the Company's original blends. It is the tea to drink for that quintessentially English ritual, afternoon tea.

To make this Afternoon Tea, a delightfully aromatic black leaf tea from China is blended with a traditional jasmine green tea. Bergamot flavor is then added to give it its gentle perfumed flavour. Gold winner of The Great Taste Awards in 2012, the judges described it as having "Good quality leaves delivering rich, warm eucalyptus notes."

Whittard's Afternoon Tea is just what it says - the perfect tea for the afternoon. Serve it with dainty sandwiches and cakes to recreate that great British tradition, or simply on its own or with biscuits to enjoy along with a chat with friends. It is great drunk without milk, although you can brew a little stronger and add milk if you wish.

Ingredients

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 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

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. 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…

* * * * * Best tea with milk so far by Jetanat Chantrapitak on 16th January 2015

Definitely my personal favourite. That tinge of bergamot really does the trick. A cup of this tea will wash away even the oiliest lingering feeling after a heavy fast food meal. Contrary to popular belief, this afternoon tea is also perfect for morning and evening.

This tea is absolutely wonderful!

My absolute favourite - have drunk nothing else for years. My friends enjoy too.

* * * * * Perfect! by Hett on 31st July 2012

My favourite blend ever! It gets strong quickly in the cup and neither the jasmine nor the bergamot are too overwhelming and complement each other.

* * * * - afternoon cuppa by Mimi on 4th March 2012

Great blend of tea to tide one over between lunch and dinner. The smooth taste is good alone and even better when paired with cookies or a scone.

* * * * * Afternoon Blend 50 Teabags by sara b on 15th November 2011

I am an old fashioned girl who likes old fashioned tea - not a lover of scented teas. Or so I thought! A colleague at work made me afternoon tea with this blend and I have been hooked ever since. I have it in the traditional way with milk and just love it.

The last time I ordered I forgot to get this delicious tea :( Not this time :) This tea has such a refreshing taste yet still has a nice strentgh to it. I remember when the old boxes had the little owl on it.

I love it and drink nothing else at home - indeed I have done for years.

* - - - - Not to my liking by KULWANT BHOGAL on 4th September 2011

I'd give this zero stars if I could. I've never tasted dishwasher detergent, but if I had, I'd imagine it would taste like this. I won't be ordering this ever again.

* * * * * Bring have some in stock by piate on 26th July 2011

My favourite blend above all else but you never seem to have it in stock!

* * * * * Afternoon tea 271098 by damian on 3rd July 2011

* * * * * Whitttards Best Tea Ever by DASBruton on 14th May 2011

I prefer this tea over all others, even Earl Grey, even all other makes of tea - but you never have any in stock! - 2 boxes does not make an order! Please make some more of this rare tea - I miss it too much.
