From Fortnum & Mason

A blend of China black Keemun and oolong teas recalling the ancient trading routes that brought tea to the tsars. Its light, almost nutty flavour and distinct character evoke the unique position of Imperial Russia on the worlds crossroads and it’s rulers domestic passion for really superior tea.

From a few weekends ago – I went out for afternoon tea with three friends and the little cafe/tea house we went at served and sold Fortnum and Mason teas! This is the one that I ordered for myself, just a little pot of it with an apple and cheddar scone!

I feel like the pot was under leafed, but I didn’t want to complain/be “that person” at the cafe. However, this was very thin tasting and not all that smokey/robust at all. I’ve had this tea before, and it just wasn’t what I remember Fortnum’s Russian Caravan tasting like at all. This was soft smoke, and gentle oolong and a Russian Caraven should slap you in the face with its briskness.

The scone was really good though – I liked the smoky apple combo!

NO, be that person! You’re in a tea house having thin tea!

I was sure that this tea was flavoured so until now I’ve avoided it. Turns out that it’s just an Oolong and black tea blend, and a nice and inoffensive one that takes even aggressive brewing well. Better hot than cold, it’s not a very memorable tea, and certainly not worth the price for what it is, but as an “afternoon cuppa” it isn’t bad.

Really lovely delicate tea don’t need much if any milk, good to drink at any time of the day but I found it more relaxing than invigorating. All in all well worth a try and available in refil bags to save you from having to pay for new caddys each time
