That's a wrap!
2023 is almost over, and it's a great time to reflect on a year filled with great tea blends old and new enjoyed by our tea-loving customers all around the world.
Without further ado, here are our 10 top best-selling teas for 2023:
Think of the sweet taste of fresh strawberries in summer and ripe peaches off the tree. These are the types of memories that Vineyard Peach Strawberry tea elicits. Real fruit juice concentrate adds authentic flavor to this black tea, along with delicious strawberries and tangerine.
“Really pleasant flavor combination that makes it seem sweet all by itself. This tea is really good hot or cold!” -Robin H.
The smoothest, creamiest chai you've ever tasted. Silky vanilla flavor softens the traditional spice blend of ginger, cardamom, and cinnamon. A pinch of clove and black pepper adds a subtle kick, and premium black tea holds it all together.
“Whistling Kettle vanilla chai is heavenly! Smooth and floral with light chai spice. It’s a new favorite, and I’m so glad I stumbled across it and WK online.” -Sarah R.
What better way to lift your spirits than to tantalize your palate with a cup of this organic, Utopian bliss? Sweet raspberries are perfectly balanced with bright and tangy hibiscus flowers to bring a smile to your face. The guayusa tea gives a caffeinated boost and with each sip, the delicate scent of jasmine rises from the cup.
“I love the way the Guayasa and green tea complement each other to give a gentle boost that lasts. (No sudden spike and crash, no jitters.) The taste is delightful and I rarely add anything to it.” -Rebecca A.
A long-time best seller, Cherry Fig is a match made in heaven. Whole, dried acerola cherries make this black tea tart and lively. Sweet chunks of dried fig soften the blend with syrupy richness. Our Cherry Fig black tea is complex and satisfying, and exceptionally good iced.
“Just received my order and this was the first one I wanted to try. The taste of this one is absolutely amazing! The cherry flavor is spot on. Definitely going to buy a bigger size next time. My new favorite!” -Katie M.
The original pure purple tea from the Nandi Hills region of Kenya. Its purple color is a result of an antioxidant known as anthocyanin, which is also found in blueberries and red cabbage. Purple tea is processed lightly like a green tea.
“This wonderful tea has a deep, mild flavor profile that I admit is deceptively delicious to the point of wanting to overindulge. I must admit I'm a superfan of this masterpiece of nature. It's also low caffeine in case you overindulge (which is not difficult to do) so you don't have to deal with the jitters.” -Victor M.
Who can resist a velvety slice of freshly baked carrot cake? Our Carrot Cake tea is packed with rich flavor and tastes like a blue-ribbon-winning dessert. Candied ginger, sweet raisins, and cinnamon give this rooibos tea a homemade charm. A sprinkle of white chocolate chips even adds a hint of the classic cream cheese frosting.
“My first time ever reviewing a tea, but it's SO good I had to let the world know! I don't even like real carrot cake but this is my favorite dessert now!” -Kristen
Naturally caffeine-free and soothing, this infusion of chamomile flowers and valerian root herbs can help promote restful sleep. Combined with aromatic peppermint and lemongrass with a hint of tangy hibiscus, Sleep Tight is the ideal bedtime tea.
“I have been using this tea for months and I rarely have any trouble falling asleep. Nice flavor too. Highly recommend!” -Diane A.
Pumpkin who? Apple Cider Donut smashed the charts, and it's not even available year-round! Nothing puts you in a fall mood like this limited-edition seasonal - and just like the real thing, you'll have to have more than one!
“This reminds me of strolling through a pumpkin patch on a crisp fall day eating an apple cider donut but it's even better because it is warm and comforting. Just what I needed on a cool rainy day in Chicago.” -Patricia H.
Just when you thought Earl Grey couldn't get any better, here comes Earl Grey Cream. A combination of the classic citrus top notes of bergamot with creamy flavor and sweet mallow blossoms. Full-bodied black tea carries the blend and works best with a dash of milk.
"Start every day with joy! For me that’s a perfectly steeped cup of hot Earl Grey Cream! Consistent, delicious, it’s my favorite Whistling Kettle tea. A simple indulgence, it’s like joy in a cup! With WK’s subscription service I never run out—and save 5%! Makes a great gift too! 10/10 recommend 🌟" -Linda S.
It's no surprise our most popular blend made it as #1. Snowflake tea has sweetness and spice with a fragrant aroma. An addictive combination of almonds, coconut, and cinnamon make this premium black tea an instant classic year-round.
“This is my special Sunday tea, after my big Sunday run. So good to come home to a pot of a special tea. I'm a snob about flavored teas, and when someone first offered me this one I said yes just to see why she liked it so much ... and I became enough of a fan that I've ordered it a few times! It's now one of my special regulars.” -Claudette
