Oh, to be in Tokyo during the spring…

Inspired by the Japanese sakura cherry blossom festival of early spring, we've layered a base of fresh Sencha green tea with flavours of sweet, ripe cherries and a sprinkling of pretty pink rose and peony petals. One sip, and you're sitting under a candyfloss cloud of blossom…

Bright, sweet and sublimely springlike, we'd also recommend you try it as a crystal clear cold infusion – why not give it a try with our Cold Brew bottle?

Brew the perfect cup

Add one teaspoon (around 2g) of loose leaf tea per cup and use freshly drawn water heated to around 80 degrees. For the ideal temperature either pour the water before it reaches boiling point or allow the water to sit for 3-5 minutes after boiling. Allow to brew for 2-3 minutes according to taste. Best enjoyed 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


The Chinese invented paper, gunpowder and the compass. But their finest innovation has to be tea, reputedly first discovered by the emperor Shen Nong in 2737 BCE. Originally prepared as a medicinal brew, tea became a drink in its own right during the Han Dynasty (206 BCE – 220 CE), and today China produces thousands of different varieties ranging from black, green and white tea to oolong, puerh and yellow tea. If you’re looking for a bit of teatime reading take a look at Lu Yu’s ‘Tea Classic’: first written in 780 CE, it covers everything from cultivation methods to tea etiquette…


Cherry Blossom

The Japanese Heian Period (794–1185AD) was the heyday of ‘Hanami', the practice of picnicking under the cherry blossom. We've numbered this tea 794 to mark the start of a centuries-old tradition. We know which tea to take on our picnic…

  • Goji Acai


    Flavoured Green Tea

    Goji, acai and green tea – you'll hear those words bandied about a lot in health circles, and we've long been intrigued by these three reputed superfoods. We've chosen a Sencha high in antioxidants for the green tea base, while rosehip, raspberry and hibiscus flowers highlight that lovely berry brightness.

  • Jasmine Dragon Pearls


    Green Tea

    A speciality of Fujian Province in China, this tea is crafted with exceptional skill, layering the youngest green tea leaves with fresh jasmine blossoms, ready to absorb their fragrant oil as the buds begin to open at dusk. Infuse the hand-rolled pearls and they'll unfurl like blossoms in the water, creating a beautifully light and aromatic brew releasing layers of flavour with each infusion.

  • Chelsea Garden


    White Tea with Flavouring

    We like to think that Walter Whittard dreamt up this blend while taking a stroll in Chelsea Physic Garden one summer evening… The delicate taste of our signature White Peony tea is perfectly matched with floral fruit flavours, while whole pink rosebuds make for quite the afternoon tea showpiece. Super with scones and strawberry jam.
