Fancy Whittard of Chelsea Instant Teas - Pink Lemonade, Dreamtime, Mango & Passionfruit

Something a little bit different today, mainly because I think they're pretty and I'm a sucker for packaging - instant teas from Whittard!  I tried Dreamtime a while ago and thought it was really yummy, so when I restocked I bought a couple of others too.  As you can see, the tins are really cute.  The teas can be drank hot or cold, it just comes in a powder you can add either hot or cold water to.  They're all pretty sweet so not sure they're actually any better for me than normal tea (I like milk and sugar in my normal cuppa) but they're a nice change.

  • Pink Lemonade - not actually pink in colour at all, more a sort of taupe, smells a little bit like Lemsip and tastes quite sweet but with a sharp zing of citrus, like enough to make you smack your lips a bit.  This is really nice hot or cold and I actually imagine it being nice in a cocktail with ice on a sunny day, I haven't tried this though.
  • Dreamtime - this is my favourite.  Again it's sweet and has a vaguely fruity/apricot-y taste.  Again, nice hot or cold, I could drink this all the time.
  • Mango and Passionfruit - this is my least favourite, but I like the packaging the best.  It tastes more peachy than anything and I'm not as keen because this reminds me a bit of peach schnapps which I'm not a huge fan of.   It's still alright though, but I don't think I'd buy it again.
These aren't that cheap (£5 for each tin) but I don't drink coffee or hot chocolate or anything, just tea, so these are a nice change when I feel like I'm getting bored with normal tea.  I like fruity teabags too but find they often smell nicer than they taste, especially vanilla type ones, bleurgh! So, er there you have it, a round up of teas I like!  Have you tried any of these?  What did you think?


  1. Great post :) I've been thinking about trying these for a while so I think I might get some now xx

    1. I'd say try Dreamtime first - when I was in they were offering little samples to try :-)

  2. I can imagine the pink lemonade being very nice on a lazy sunny afternoon cold!

  3. I've not been to Whittards in ages so long. Dreamtime is my favourite, but I'd want to buy the Mango and Passionfruit one just for the tub! xx
