Whittard Signature Collection Review
Whittard has been working on a collection which has taken over a century to get to a wonderful level to share among us tea fiends. They love their tea and that love is most definitely evident in their brand new signature collection.
I was lucky enough to be sent a taster of the new range and oh my it’s fuelled my tea addiction!
The 4 lovely loose teas are a treat and really have a strong clean taste. The golden camomile is stunning and it’s not a flavour I would have gone for but it very special and calming. I really like the marrakech mint. It’s unusual at first but very comforting.
These teas are definitely good for those of us trying to be more mindful. The tea looks, smells, tastes and feels beautiful. I love being able to see the flowers and in the tea. The specks of colour in the dark tea of the mango and betamot is a treat. I love it!
I love these teas! It is lovely being sent tasty things so beautifully presented. I was very happy to enjoy these flavours out of the 21 high quality teas in the collection.
The Pao infuser mug (£15) has to be my favourite part of the new collection. The cup with infuser pan and lid is such a simple but incredibly clever and useful piece of kit of loose tea fans. I was always put off by loose teas because they can be so messy and hard to enjoy solo. This cup has been an incredibly popular item in my kitchen for the last week. I would absolutely recommend these to any tea fan. (I’m getting one for my friend’s birthday!)
Above is the beautiful boxes of tea bags from the collection. These start at £5. The Apple and Elderflower is such a beautiful taste which reminds me of autumn. It’s the best time of year for English apples and this tea is a lovely celebration of that. The white tea is very delicate. I haven’t had much in the way of white tea before but I think I rather like it. It tastes very grown up and the hint of peony is special. I would definitely recommend these both.
My favourite little gadget is this beautiful silver plated strainer (£10). It looks like a wicker basket but in metal. It holds the tea very well and helps produce wonderful tea. It’s such a beautiful and very useful gadget. It wouldn’t be out place in a Victorian kitchen or in Downton Abbey.
There are loose leaf tea pouches, large leaf tea pyramids, loose leaf tea caddies and infusion bottles in the collection. Everyone of them looks beautiful and would make a wonderful gift or a treat for yourself.
