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!

Boiling 3 min, 0 sec

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!

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.

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.
