Whittard of Chelsea
MONDAY - SUNDAY: 9:30AM - 9PM
When Walter Whittard launched his first London shop in 1886, his philosophy was simple: buy the best. It's a philosophy that's stayed close to Whittard's heart since then, driving their belief in quality, heritage and innovation. Today their world-class range of tea, coffee and cocoa satisfies every curiosity and taste – from classic English Breakfast tea to creative hot chocolate flavours and unique tea and coffee blends.
Whittard of Chelsea has been masters in the art of quality tea, coffee and cocoa since 1886, and their two-storey shop at the heart of Covent Garden's Market Building is a real treat if you’re looking for something a little more special than your everyday brew.
Have a browse and you’ll find specialist teas and infusions, limited edition artisan coffees and a number of exclusive Whittard blends, many of which have been customer favourites for well over a century. You can also choose from a wide range of elegant tableware, expert brewing equipment and all sorts of sweet treats to complete your tea party.
And it doesn’t stop there – the lower-ground floor is now home to a new tea bar serving a full all-day afternoon tea menu bursting with teas, delicious cakes and reimagined afternoon tea classics of scones and savouries. Skilled with the knowledge of over 100 leaf teas, the team of experts are on hand to recommend the perfect tea pairing to suit each item on the menu.
Stop by to try a range of daily tastings, or for a bit of expert advice from their friendly staff – they’ve got good taste down to a tea…
