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 flavour 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.


70% Black Tea, 29% Green Tea & 1% Bergamot flavour.

Brew a 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.

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.

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.

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