Smooth creamy tea, quite astringent but still wonderfully tasty. Astringency disappears when taken with milk. Good solid tea

Light bodied strong tea with pepper and citrus notes and no astringency.
Works better without milk, although it can be brewed darker and taken with milk. A good pick me up on the coldest and stormiest day of the year.

The perfect Ceylon if you can get your hands on it. This is not part of F&M’s usual collection, but you can find it sold by weight in their store in Piccadilly or in their Heathrow Terminal 1 boutique. It’s a cheerful, warming tea – bright and malty, and goes well with milk (although I prefer it plain). The leaves are quite small (BOP) so be careful not to overbrew.
A lovely tea to end the day with.

Peppery tones, no astringency, very unique tea.

Upping the rating of this tea after two more cups. It is much more delicate than an Assam and has very little astringency. Will buy a pack for my cupboard

Filthy weather outside – fiercely windy, cold and pouring rain. Couldn’t make it to work today due to traffic. But it is perfect tea weather!
Brewed a cup of fountain blend. More piquant and much less astringent this time. Perhaps I overbrewed it last time? Will give it another try later and decide.

Profile

Bio

An Israeli computer programmer with a passion for tea (mostly bought in yearly shopping sprees in the UK), particularly black, oolong and white. I don’t generally enjoy flavoured teas or herbal infusions, but if a tea sounds interesting and smells nice I’ll most definitely try it. I drink several cups of tea a day, usually one or two in the morning, another one after lunch and one or two in the evening. My favourite tea so far is Lao Cong Zi Ya from Norbu Tea, but I’m constantly trying new teas. Only in the past year have I branched into Pu’erh and non-roasted oolongs. Finding good tea in Israel is difficult, so I import most of my teas from yearly visits to London, or from online retailers. If you see something in my cupboard that sparks your interest and you would like to swap with me, then please message me. I’m almost always up for a swap.
