322 Tasting Notes
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.
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.
