Savoring Tea Time with Whittard

by Nicole on April 2, 2013

I have really started to enjoy a cup of tea in the morning and another one in the evening.  I used to drink caffeine but haven’t in over 4 years now so I prefer decaf teas which can sometimes be hard to find and lack the flavor variety of their caffeinated counterparts  Whittard is great tea and I am so happy to have found it!

Our story began in 1886 when Walter Whittard opened his first tea and coffee store on London’s Fleet Street. His philosophy was to always ‘Buy The Best’, sourcing the highest quality teas and coffees from around the world and blending them to his customers’ specifications.

Today – over 125 years later – we still remain true to Walter’s founding philosophy. From one little shop on Fleet Street we continue to grow, sharing our innovative range and specialist knowledge across our UK stores, overseas and online. We’re still the blending and tasting experts, offering you something truly unique, wherever you come into contact with us.

• We have 130 varieties of tea, and still blend our own teas and infusions, just as Walter did.
• We are one of the few places that will grind freshly roasted coffee beans to your individual tastes.
• We have over 18 varieties of luxurious hot chocolate, tempting chocolate lovers with everything from White Chocolate and Strawberry to Chilli.
• We believe that preparation and serving are all part of the enjoyment. So we sell specialist china, equipment and glassware alongside our drinks.

I received the cherry acerola tea, the orange and cinnamon rooibos and the strawberry vanilla rooibos to try out.  All were decaf and I was so impressed with the depth of the flavors.  My favorite was the cherry.  It was light but a little tart and had a great cherry flavor.  The orange cinnamon was slightly spicy and I love this one at night after dinner.  The strawberry vanilla was also really good and none of the teas were sweet, I had to add sugar to each of them.  I like that you can control the sweetness this way.

I received tea samples to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own.

I want to try a tart-tasting cherry tea. I really love fruity flavored tea.
