Irish Breakfast from Fortnum & Mason

Style: Irish Breakfast – Region: Blend

90 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Mar. 12th, 2020

Having never had Irish Breakfast tea before I was a bit taken aback when I opened the container to not find tea leaves, but little pellets like the low cost tea my brother buys! Having imported it all the way here I was really disappointed until I brewed some and discovered it makes the best milk tea ever.

Royal Blend from Fortnum & Mason

Style: Black Tea – Region: Blend

A rather strong and sharp tea that suits milk tea very well. I tend to mix this with other teas to make their flavor more mild. It’s my go to if I just want rich delicious milk tea with honey.

Royal Blend from Fortnum & Mason

Style: Black Tea – Region: Blend

73 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Mar. 27th, 2019

This has a smooth, rich flavor, although with a touch of sharpness (short steeping time is better). It practically begs to have milk added, which I don't typically do. Taken black, I find it a little lacking in sweetness. The aroma comes more from the Ceylon and is pleasantly nutty, while the Assam ensures a malty fini...

Assam Shankar: Finest Second Flush from Fortnum & Mason

Style: Assam – Region: Assam, India

58 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Feb. 24th, 2019

My wife's acquaintance's mom, who had passed away recently, bought this tea in London but never opened it. Since we like tea, we ended up with it from her estate sale. It's odd how, since I've started reviewing here, teas seem to fall out of the sky and into my hands through a variety of fortuitous circumstances, in ...

Royal Blend from Fortnum & Mason

Style: Black Tea – Region: Blend

73 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Aug. 20th, 2015

Fortnum & Mason teas always bring back good memories of trips to London with my father years ago. Royal Blend is a strong one - less strong than, say, Irish Breakfast, but a black tea blend for sure with a tannic aroma and a pleasant "wake up" bite. I like this tea very much and it stands up to milk or cream & sugar ...

Earl Grey Classic Tea from Fortnum & Mason

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: Blend

63 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Jan. 15th, 2014

A solid British-style Earl Grey, smooth and easy to drink. I'm excited that I finally got to try a loose-leaf tea from Fortnum and Mason. I have been unimpressed by their tea bags, but their loose-leaf is definitely a step up in quality.

Broken-leaf with a classic Earl Grey aroma, both of the dry loose-leaf tea, a...

Darjeeling Broken Orange Pekoe from Fortnum & Mason

Style: Darjeeling Black Tea – Region: Darjeeling, India

47 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 2/5
Nov. 15th, 2013

This one disappointed me. It tasted a lot less recognizable as a Darjeeling than most Darjeeling tea bags do. There was a faint hint of the muscatel grape aroma, but the dominant aroma was like a generic black tea, not much different from Lipton and the like.

The color of the brewed cup is dark, and the tea has a ...

Breakfast Blend Tea Bags from Fortnum & Mason

Style: English Breakfast – Region: Assam, India

57 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Oct. 25th, 2013

I found this tea interesting in that it is in the English Breakfast style, but is made from pure Assam. The tea bag looks unimpressive--it's just a simple tea bag filled with very finely broken tea dust or fannings.

The brewed cup is not bad though. It's a little darker in color than a typical English Breakfast, w...

Royal Blend is my favorite tea. For my taste buds this is the ultimate but I am always ready to find some tea that is better.

Fortnum and Mason teas - especially the Black,strong Irish breakfast, brings back memories of England for me. This will wake you up for sure - and I need sugar or honey in it - and is better hot than iced in my opinion. (true Brits would put milk it this.)

Mar. 8th, 2013

Good, traditional British blend with malty Assam and Ceylonese Pekoe. Best suited as a breakfast or morning tea. The refreshing Pekoe plesantly lifts the punchier Assam making an enjoyable brew. Nice aroma but a touch on the pricey side.

While this is not my favorite selection of the F&M line. It's a fairly good quality cup. R&M'S Royal Blend, Celebration, and Queen Anne are fabulously unforgetable teas.
