I had the opportunity to have high tea at Fortnum & Mason while I was in London last month and it was phenomenal. Their service at high tea was lovely and they made sure we had plenty of scones, sandwiches, and tea to satisfy us. After finishing up our tea, we had some time to browse the ground level where they sell their teas as well as their teaware level. Generally, the prices are fairly high (I purchased 2 of the sample size sets – Flavored Blacks and Fortnum & Mason Famous Teas) but I have loved each and every one of the teas I purchased. Very very high quality and I will have to make a point to stop by if I ever find myself in London again!

If you are in London, do take the time to visit this store. It is much, much more than a tea store, but I will focus only on the tea section in the ground floor.
The tea section greats you as you enter from Piccadilly street, with a slew of beautiful caddies that hold Fortnum’s more popular blends or single estate teas. Sale items are located in baskets near the entrance door, and you might miss them if you don’t know where to look for them. There’s a central display for their more special blends and teas, and it is always worth looking at them and sniffing. The prices are high, but I haven’t bought something there that I’ve been disappointed with. I recommend focusing on their unique blends (Piccadilly Blend is my favourite, but Fountain Blend is also very nice), and on the special teas that aren’t prepackaged, but are sold by weight. I bought two very unique teas there over the years – a “Golden Monkey Tail” Ceylon (yes, it was a Ceylon and not a Chinese tea – I double checked), and a “Silver Dragon Beard” white tea that I haven’t seen anywhere else since, and where well worth their high price. It’s most definitely not a place to go for a bargain, but for a special tea, or a beautiful gift for a tea lover – it fits the bill.
