Description

This historical blend is inspired by the type of tea enjoyed in Victorian London when Walter Whittard opened his first shop in 1886. We’ve chosen the strong, rich leaves of the Indonesian Camellia assamica tea bushes, blending the whole leaves with those processed using the CTC (crush, tear, curl’) technique for a hearty, full-bodied and flavoursome brew.

CTC was first developed to speed up the process of oxidation, strengthening the colour and flavour to mask the brackish London water. Londoners soon acquired a taste for the invigorating new brew and our expertly crafted 1886 blend has a real taste of authenticity – moreish and malty, we love it with a splash of milk at breakfast.
