Tea Discoveries English Rose Tea Caddy
Out of stock
It was during Chinas Ming Dynasty (1368 –1644) that tea artisans first experimented with buds and blossoms, imbuing the leaves with essential oils. Roses were among the very first flowers they tried and Osmanthus, orchids and jasmine also proved popular.
We’ve recreated the taste of a classic Meigui Congou rose tea by using a Chinese black tea for the base, imbued with subtle floral flavours and scattered with rose petals.
The tea might be authentically Chinese, but those wonderfully aromatic notes of rose are forever England. Deliciously delicate and seductively sweet, a single sip brings to mind rolling hills, church bells and country gardens: perfect for a picnic on the village green. As part of the beautiful Tea Discoveries range, we’ve created a bespoke caddy for our English Rose with a pattern inspired by vintage tea dresses. A very pretty addition to your kitchen and an ideal gift for a tea lover.
Our caddies are stackable for easy, organised storage and neat kitchen displays. Now there's no excuse not to add to your tea caddy collection...

Ever since our founder Walter Whittard weighed out tea leaves behind his high mahogany counter, we've been experimenting with our own inventive blends.
