I can’t recall what company packaged the tea I had… but I was at the Royal York hotel in Piper’s Gastro Pub. It’s in the basement where they have all the shops and services etc.
The staff there are friendly and they provide a mixed snack bowl every time we go, regardless of whether we are just having tea or a full on meal. It’s convenient, being so close to the subway and go train station so I end up there alot.
Anyhow, the tea itself was pretty decent. I think it was anyhow…
except when the server took my little stainless steel pot, she replaced the tea bag!!!! I had SO been looking forward to seeing what a second steeping brought, but she decided to do me a “favour”. Agh. She didn’t know any better. Most people don’t resteep their darjeelings anyhow.
Like I said, the tea itself was pretty passable. Citrusy, with a little more of that pucker factor than I am used to. (and I steeped for maybe two min). Not in a sour way, but more that drying sensation.
I was engrossed in conversation, so I didn’t notice much else. I know the cup got a little better and rounder as it cooled. Super hot, it was just ok.
Overall I think it’d get a rating of maybe 84 but I don’t want to mess up some random tea if I’ve got the wrong one! I prefer the Margaret’s Hope I have here at home much more

I’m pretty sure all the places in the Royal York serve the Fairmount teas. I know they do in the Library Bar, and that’s what is in the hotel rooms as well. They do some pretty decent blends, for a bagged tea!

you’re probably right Tina! I should pay more attention next time… so that I can log it!
and I so agree, superb for a bagged one!
