Dragon Well Loose Tea

More about this Tea
We're not just fans of Alice in Wonderland: we're partial to a little Tolkien too. The Hobbit's dragon Smaug was 180 when he was slain, so we've numbered our Dragon Well 180.
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.
