The morning cuppa. Not my very favorite tea due the extreme briskness, but it has a bit of oompf for the morning time. Better with some soymilk to mellow it out. Someday I’d like to try some other teas from Fortnum & Mason.

“Tippy” in any tea generally means highly tasty! And it’s just fun to say “tippy.”

Another tea from NofarS, this was my first cup of the day.
A nice bold Assam, I steeped the leaf twice, first @ 3 min & then again @ 5. It’s been a few hours since I drank it, so all I can really say is I enjoyed it & it was nicely satisfying. Thanks Nofar!

Sipdown of the small caddy that I brought to work, but I still have some left at home. This is one of the most popular teas in the office, particularly in the mornings. I don’t think I’ve ever had any other tea disappear so quickly. I’m planning to restock the office caddy tomorrow.
