Blended with real almonds and vanilla pieces...

Bringing together the tastes of fine black tea and the buttery sweetness of shortbread, we’ve captured the spirit of English tea drinking in a single cup. Our tea tasters have chosen a base of deliciously robust black tea and blended it with real almonds and vanilla pieces to recreate that authentic shortbread taste.

It’s divine as an afternoon treat, either on its own or with a plate of its namesake biscuits.

    Perfect for afternoon tea


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 don’t respond that well to caffeine, so I tend to go to our fruit and herbal infusions. Baked Apple is one of my favourites, and rooibos is lovely as a caffeine-free breakfast tea.”

- Octavia, Cambridge 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…

* * * * - So tasty by Zoi on 1st March 2015

This tea is actually so tasty. It smells amazingly as well. The downside is that the amount of tea in the bag is ridiculous compared to the price of £6.

* * * * * Excellent by Katherine Bailes on 18th May 2014

I bought this tea based on it's smell, which is amazing! I was persuaded to take a risk with the excellent returns policy. However, I was pleasantly surprised that it tastes just as good as it smells. It took me a few attempts to work out how I like it brewed, but even after trying other teas, this remains my favourite. The tea itself is clearly a black tea, and the flavouring does not overpower it. It is slightly sweet due to the vanilla pieces. If you are concerned about the flowers making the tea taste.. flowery, do not be put off, as this contributes to the flavour only mildly.
