Fortnum & Mason – Royal Blend – Jasmine Dragon Pearls

Company Name: FORTNUM & MASON

 

Did you notice the lovely blue/aqua color Fortnum & Mason use? It so reminds me of a Tiffany box. Just has to share. Not just a tea company their site is full of so many fun things and you will just have to check it out.

 

TEA SELECTION: ROYAL BLEND

 

Interesting Highlights:

This classic Fortnum’s blend, low-grown Flowery Pekoe from Ceylon lends an uplifting note to the maltier Assam to make a very traditional cup of tea. First blended for King Edward VII in the summer of 1902, Royal Blend has been popular ever since for its smooth, almost honey-like flavor

 

Ingredients:

Ceylon and Assam Tea

 

The Scent or Aroma:

A malty stronger tea

 

Review:

This is a strong tea and I can definitely see this tea being served to the royals. It’s got a dark liquor with a malty almost earthy flavor. The malty flavor coats the ongue and leaves a sweet sense in your mouth. A lovely mellow strong tea.

 

 

Cost: £4.25/ 25 Tea Bags

Price may vary according to the amount purchased.

TEA SELECTION: JASMINE DRAGON PEARLS

 

Interesting Highlights:

I found this tea listed under a rare tea collection but not individually. It’s really a beautiful tea, that I encourage you to take a moment and hold one pearl in your hand and really look at it, embrace the work it took to bring that tea to you. It’s really amazing.

These hand rolled gems are lovely to brew and to watch unroll and then to smell the magnificent jasmine floral scent. A medium liquor that is mellow and smooth with a slight vegetal flavor.
