drank Royal Blend by Fortnum & Mason
1 tasting notes

Enjoyed the Royal Blend on my first trip to London; smooth, flavorful with no bitterness whatsoever. I’ve been hooked ever since, and have sampled many of F&M’s flavors. Now that the US seller is gone, I’m concerened as to where to find F&M here in the US. Anyone have an idea?

williams sonoma says they carry it, but my experience hasn’t been good with ordering from them. I placed an order in December, then a week later I got an email saying it’s on backorder until next october! So I cancelled, of course, and I am like you, wondering where I can get my hands on some. The shipping to order directly from F & M is like, $45…. ridiculous. Guess the British want to keep it for themselves (and the tourists who stop in for a cup) ?

Stoo

We just picked up some of this tea today at the local Williams Sonoma store in Charlotte. They also had F & M’s Earl Grey and a breakfast tea, I believe.

I have tried to get it from WS online, and they are perpetually on backorder/sold out, and the last time I looked to see if they had any in, the price had skyrocketed. sigh. I’ll look again before the holidays, of course. Wish I could go to one in person, but I live in the sticks

fleurdelily

just tried, on the open browser right this second, and I typed in ‘Fortnum’ and got 2 jars of jam. That’s it. I typed in ‘tea’ and got various cups and kettles. They USED to carry hampers and everything. I’m kicking myself for not getting one while I hd the chance. I will try again closer to the holidays, but heck, this is Nov already (0_0)
