Fortnum & Mason Advent Calendar 2021 – Day 14
OMG a non-black tea!!! :O Don’t get me wrong, I love black tea, but variety is nice.
I’m really enjoying this as an afternoon cuppa. The elderflower is present but not over-the-top, and there’s a slight fruitiness to it that reminds me of lychee a bit? It’s quite sweet and light overall. The base, however, seems to be a gunpowder green tea and it has a quite earthy, mineral flavor with a hint of smoke. So an interesting juxtaposition there… Heaven and Earth, perhaps?
Anyway, it’s a lovely tea, and perfect for a bit of an afternoon relaxation break on a busy day.
