drank Royal Blend by Fortnum & Mason
1088 tasting notes

One of Lexa’s friends brought this back when she was last in the UK and I figured I would make it this afternoon in the interest of a sipdown (this is my last easy one). Though I maybe should’ve waited until the season 4 premier of The Crown.

This is a somewhat intense black breakfast-ish tea. It’s definitely got some astringency and would probably be better with milk and/or sugar. I maaay add some frothed almond milk, but also I’m a bit lazy to get off the couch haha!

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 0 sec

Bio

I live with my partner and our two bunnies: Callie and Ben, and two cats: Freyja and Ivan. I’m currently working on my MSc in biology and enjoying tea along the way!

I love straight and flavoured black teas and this is what I’m usually drinking.

I’m also happy to enjoy a cup of green or red rooibos (green preferable to red), herbals, oolongs, whites, and subtly flavoured greens. Other teas I’m happy to try at least once!

Likes:
Raspberry, rhubarb, passionfruit, and most fruits in general, maple, creaminess, cacao/dark chocolate, honey, coconut, and chai spices. I’m open to other flavoured teas but they can’t be cloying or fake/candy like.

Dislikes:
Any smokiness at all, stevia, too much blackberry leaf, flowers (rose and jasmine), and ginger (except in chai).

Flavours that can go either way:
Hibiscus, vanilla, and peach.
