Review: Whittard Tea, Hot Chocolate and Biscuits

I don't really post food/drink reviews actually I don't think I've ever done one. But a few weeks ago I came across a company called Whittard of Chelsea and got a hold of a few samples of their tea, hot chocolate and biscuits. Trying them I knew a review post was very much needed. 


Baked Apple Tea


Just hearing the name Baked Apple flavour makes my mouth water. I'm a massive tea lover in case you didn't know, so I was pretty excited to try this out. I love experimenting with different flavours and last year fell in love with chocolate flavour tea so I was expecting good things from this. 

It didn't disappoint. I love that it's not too strong, just the right strength and Baked Apple is definitely a winning flavour. The apple and cinnamon make a great combo. 

The actual tea bags are made of a cloth material so you know you're going to get a well made tea and flavour. I almost didn't want to throw it away. It kind of reminds me of those potpourri bags you get. I'm weird I know. 


I loved the taste of these and with only 15, I'm going to have to stop myself from having them all quickly. If you love fruit teas, I'd give these guys a try.


Hot Chocolate

One of the best hot chocolates I've tried. It's so rich but smooth and yummy. It definitely is a luxury hot chocolate. 2 teaspoons is the perfect amount. Even as I write this my mouth is watering and hands are itching to have another mug of it.

Again, I'm having to stop myself drinking this all the time. It's pretty yummy. And the tin is pretty cute as well. I'll definitely be using it to keep a few bits and bobs in. Well done Whittard - versatility. 

Cantucci (Almond) Biscuits

The final Whittard product I came across was the Cantucci Biscuits. I had no idea what to expect but again they were pretty yummy. They were a crunchy, crispy biscuit with almonds in the middle. The perfect amount of sweetness. 

Like with most biccies you can't test them properly without tea - as you can tell from my mug here - and they pass that test. Again, they've outdone themselves on packaging. It's just so cute and you can definitely tell they put a lot of time, effort and thought into it. I'm gutted I only got 2 of these biscuits. And I may be tempted to buy some more now. 


Admittedly, I'd never heard of Whittard, being a London based company, until I came across these products. But it's clear they sell some pretty nice products. Browsing their website it's not just tea and biscuits. They sell mugs, brewing utensils, bowls, plates and gift sets (perfect for Mothers Day). The more I look at their website the more I'm tempted to buy something.  



If you want to find out more check them out on Twitter @whittarduk or their website here



Like I said, this is not my usual kind of post but let me know what you think of it and if you like it I might start doing some more occasionally. 



Happy Shopping x

  1. BAKED APPLE TEA. I am a massive tea lover too so need to try this! I'm glad you said it's not too sweet. That really annoys me when a tea sounds so yummy but then it's made disgusting by its sweetness. (I brought a Christmas cake one from Bluebird Tea thinking it would taste amazing but it didn't)
