Pursuing his passion to import and trade high quality tea and coffee,Walter Whittard opened his first shop in London in 1886. Selling tea, coffee and cocoa, he started creating special blends for his customers, building and nurturing the reputation Whittards has today.
From that one little shop on Fleet Street Whittard continues to grow, sharing their innovative range and specialist knowledge across their UK stores, such as the one found here in Nasons.
Situated next to our Coffee Shop, the long-established and well-known purveyors of traditional teas and coffees, Whittard are also able to offer a lovely selection of fruit and instant teas, as well as flavoured coffees. We also keep a selection of Coffee beans in stock which can be ground while you wait. Coffee making equipment is also on sale in store.
Whittard offers a lovely range of chocolate covered coffee beans and there is always a wonderful choice of colourful and exclusive hand-painted ceramics - mugs, cups and teapots available to either brighten your own table or give away as gifts. There are often selected tastings for you to try there too!
