Morning tea! i figured that i should really get around to trying the rest of my F&M teas since my parents are headed to london in a few weeks and are already asking me what i’d like them to bring back. Not that i need more tea but it’s an “easy” solution to things.

I sort of cheated with this one today and added a splash of maple syrup..so i’ll have to rate this later when i have it straight but so far, this is a decent cup that i quite enjoyed!

Yvonne

Glad to hear you enjoyed it, Sil :)
If you want tea London’s definitely the place to go – I’d ask for tons if I were you!

keychange

Omg, so jealous that you have tea transporters from London! Please let me know if you’d like me to likewise “help you” take advantage of your parents! ;) ;)

Sil

keychange – is there something you’re after that you really want to try?
Yvonne – i actually really want to go to FRANCE (not that i haven’t already been multiple times, but not since i fell in love with tea) London is for Dr who and the BBC hahaha

keychange

London is also a great place for MF, although didn’t you say there’s mf in Canada also? I’m going to break into my mf teas very soon, and then I’m thinking I might want to do a little restockeroo of some of them. And I’m in the market to try a few f and m teas also…how posh LOL

MissB

I’ve told my eldest that one day we will sit in some lovely high end tea shoppe in France, sipping tea, just because we can. (And then I’ll buy up so much tea I’ll have to ship it back home separately, however that’s a whole other conversation!)

Sil

Keychange – i’m happy to do a swap with you sometime so you can try some of the french teas in my cupboard. :)

MissB…me! me! take me!

Yvonne

I could probably fit in some luggage if you ever decided to take me along :D This way we can all go and save on plane tickets!

Sil

haha i dunno how you’d get back though yvonne…the second suitcase will be full of tea :)

keychange

How thoughtful, Sil! I actually have a few French teas, thanks to justjames, although I’m not sure how easily they can be found in London—so far I’ve tried a few from mf and df. Would they be able to get me some mf? Will you be getting some mf also? and we can totally swap. There’s nothing in my cupboard you can’t have :D

I have been away from Steepster for so long! Sigh, have been too busy to taste tea properly lately…

I am happy that when I finally have the time to do so, I am rewarded with a great cup! It’s smooth, brisk, and aromatic. It reminds me of the endless cups of wonderful Ceylon teas that I had when I visited Tea Trails in Sri Lanka last year. It’s unusual for me to like plain black tea so much but it is just THAT good. :)

Drinking this one at work this morning, and it’s a bit too finicky for work. Even slightly over steeped this gets astringent. With a fairly short steep – approx 2 minutes, there are lots of stone fruit (preach – apricot?) notes to it.
I think this would be ok for me at home when I had time to treat it right, not so good at work. Thanks Sil for passing on a sample of this to me.

Ysaurella

F&M breakfast blends are really strong and can become bitter quite quickly.Probably made to have with milk and sugar à l’anglaise.

Sil kindly sent a bit of this my way. This is a decent blend. Clean and nice. It has a bit of strength behind it but at 3 minutes it didn’t get too bitter. Thanks, Sil! :)

Another BBBB offering from Sil. I enjoyed a pot of this while teaching my Skype student, but I accidentally used a little too much leaf, so I added a splash of vanilla almond milk, and problem solved. The rest goes into the sipdown box, as there is just enough for one more cup.
