Covent Garden Blend Loose Tea
Out of stock
We were inspired by the sights and scents of Covent Garden market to craft this delicate blend of loose leaf Ceylon black tea, layered with hints of peach and apricot.
As a homage to Covent Garden's blossoming history as a fruit and flower market, we've added a glorious cascade of petals, from cornflowers to bright safflowers and marigolds – it's a little cup of metropolitan paradise.
Black Tea, Flavourings, 4% Marigold, Safflower and Cornflower Petals

More about this Tea

You'll find our Covent Garden store in the Jubilee Hall – on the very site where Samuel Pepys saw Britain's first recorded Punch and Judy show. That was back in 1662, so we've given this tea the number 62 as a nod to a staple of British culture…
Ever since our founder Walter Whittard weighed out tea leaves behind his high mahogany counter, we've been experimenting with our own inventive blends. Today you'll find extraordinary creativity in our collection, from unique twists on classics like English Breakfast to more inventive blends laden with fruit and flowers.
