Who doesn’t love Fortnum and Mason, and we cannot think of the iconic brand without thinking of tea. Something they are world renowned for. I reviewed their Jubilee Tea quite a while ago and after a recent trip to London it seemed only right to pick up another delicious blend to try.
Today it is their very own Fortmason Tea £10.95
This blend of Indian and China teas is also perfumed with the delicate aroma of orange blossom to produce a subtle, floral flavour.
Taste & strength
Floral and aromatic.
When to drink
Best in the afternoon.
India and China
Use boiling water and brew for 3-5 minutes depending on taste. Serve with milk, or brew lighter and enjoy without.
This is one of their lighter blends and is certainly the most fragrant of them all. My friend commented it was like smelling a perfumery.
I don’t like my tea too dark and was taken by the citrus zest that hit me as soon as I sniffed it. As for looks, well who doesn’t enjoy the iconic metal tea caddies the Fortnum and Mason have. Perfect for the on the shelf at home to build a little more of a collection. or pehaps a wonderful gift for those that enjoy a spot of tea.
The tea steeps well and has a wonderful honey brown colour with a very aromatic scent. A wonderful early afternoon tea I think (scone or biscuit optional!). The taste is slightly sweet and refreshing with a slightly bitter dark aftertaste which is not unpleasant. For me this is not a tea to steep for long and I think that may remove some of the bitter taste.
Wonderful for when friends are round for lunch or just for a little afternoon pick me up.
Well perhaps I think it is time for a spot more tea….
