Few hours in life are more agreeable than the British ceremony known as afternoon tea. Our Afternoon Earl Grey is distinguished by its classic bergamot taste combined with the gentlest fragrance of blue cornflowers. An elegant blend, it evokes an era of fine china and leisurely conversation, when the ceremony of teatime was an unhurried pleasure.

This tea was my favourite afternoon tea, surpassing even the wonderful original Pelham Mixture or 'Afternoon Tea' as it became known.
One day, on making a first pot from a new batch, I thought the teapot or cup had been contaminated with washing up soap.
On enquiry with Whittard, they confirmed that the blend was indeed different because they had moved to a new supplier.
The scent from this tea, as it is now, reminded me of the smell you get when you walk past a branch of Body Shop.
Please can we have the original blend back?
This is a top favourite tea of mine.
I have enjoyed it for the last three years everyday. It is a light, flavoursome tea, perfect to brew for five minutes in a pot. The blue cornflowers add a delicate touch. If you like a stroger brew, then go for the breakfast earl grey.
