1886 was an era of innovation in London when Mr. Whittard opened his original shop. The first electric lights glowed in windows; the Underground was still being built and ran on steam. Inspired by the changes around him, Mr. Whittard invented this strong but smooth tea. He blended Assam, a new malty tea from India, with aromatic Keemun to produce a taste of the times.

My favourite Whittards tea. Lovely colour, deep flavour without any bitterness, satisfaction in every cup.
This is a good one. Like a breakfast tea, but with an edge that's noticeably different and in a worthwhile way. Like the difference between a £5 white table wine and a £10 one: same stuff but just better tasting! Recommended.
So far every cup has made me go "Ahhhhh' after the first sip. That to me is the sign of a good tea. Love it!!
twisty and good
