From Fortnum & Mason

This blend of teas from the higher and lower regions of Ceylon delivers a light, refreshing flavour with real body. Of all our blends, Afternoon makes the best iced tea, as it stays perfectly clear when chilled, but is equally good served the traditional way with a splash of milk and perhaps a scone or two.

A bright, light bodied tea, with a light malt and prunes flavor,and a little astringency. Not sure that it has enough body to hold up well against milk. My mother likes light teas, and I’m drinking this at my parents’ house. It’s a solid-but-not-so-exciting tea. Suitable for drinking in the afternoon, during a Friday visit to your parents, with the sound of children playing bouncing up trough the window

Steeped lightly and servered with milk reveals the soft and subtle notes within this great tea.

A tea bag that I had in my drawer instead of huge bags, but comes from the latter.

It is overcast, with little rain, a bank holiday (patron of Bohemia, St. Wenceslas, was killed 1085 years ago by his brother), sad day… heading to work this afternoon.

Tomorrow a new semester starts. I was promising myself I will clean up my desk so I could work as needed, as we will stay at home and have distance learning. Nope.

Tea review down from this line
The tea is same as last time (tea bag version). Typical black tea with some bitterness, quite tannic and not much of malty. They say it is light and refreshing and well, I don’t much think so.
Tea review up from this line

I feel overall somehow quite down, like the little kid who realised that his vacation is over, my mother said me that I am kind of sponger of family, I am doing nothing to pay family bills and I am trading on that I am the youngest. I must say it hit me terrilbly and although I am sure she didn’t meant it necessary in a bad way, it is something you really don’t want to hear!

Keep in mind that we are going into the 7th month of the pandemic. It feels like everyone’s patience with and tolerance of each other and life in general grows less and less as we wait for things to become ‘normal’ again. Forgive yourself for not being perfect and forgive your mother as well. None of us are at our best right now.

Thanks derk. It’s a reminder to myself as much as it (if not more than) is a comment to Martin’s feeling badly.

White Antlers: You know you are right :-) I just was somehow tense yesterday and those things hurt me badly

So, I spent most of yesterday afternoon and evening over at a friend/coworker’s house playing board game with her and her boyfriend – we also drank a ton of tea. Surprisingly she’s not a massive tea drinker (though she does drink some tea), but her boyfriend is VERY into tea – namely British tea, though he’s trying to branch out.

So he got to try a bunch of tea from my collection, and in return he made sure I had a bottomless mug of tea from their collection throughout the entire night. This was the first thing he made for me, steeped extra strong with milk and sugar. I told him he could basically make me whatever he wanted, however he wanted to steep it and I would happily drink it. I think he had a lot of fun with that.

I thought this was pretty good – in all honesty it’s not a type of tea that I would probably purchase for myself, especially because I find Fortnum & Mason quite expensive for the quality of the tea, so if I’m going to buy something from F&M I want it to be one of their more unique offerings. This is his favourite tea company, though, and respectfully it’s a solid cup of black tea. Full bodied, malty, and not too sweet – as a classic cuppa I can see the appeal.

I enjoyed this tea to the last cup. It’s a mild tea and, like it’s name says, perfect for afternoon consumption. I often enjoyed mine with a touch of milk and sugar. Definitely be careful not to oversteep it. Otherwise it can be bitter.

This is a nice light black tea. It’s got just a little bit of astringency and some pleasing stone fruit undertones. Not one of those teas that hits you over the head with its bold flavors, but makes for a really pleasant cup. I don’t drink Ceylon very often—when I go for black teas, I’m usually drawn to bold, malty Assams or, on the other hand, astringent, floral Darjeelings—but this blend has me thinking I shouldn’t be so quick to overlook it as the boring middle-ground option.

Plum and fruity tones- almost like a fruitcake in the background. Note of honey sweetness. Barn-y, almost bitter note near the end of the sip. Make me think of copper when I drink it.

Second infusion at 4 minutes with same temperature. The astringency is softened. Still has nice flavour.

Flavors: Barnyard, Fruity, Honey, Plum

This is a clean, light tea, with some maltiness. Nice Balanced natural flavors~ I tend to like flavored Black Teas but I think this is an excellent straight, afternoon tea.

When not oversteeped, this is quite a nice blend. More malt than I expected but still a light malt. Nice fruity notes and molasses. Oversteep and it turns into why I don’t do Ceylons very often – bitter, bitter, bitter. But done right it’s a good cup.

Backlog. I had this tea this afternoon because I was being indecisive and this blend is literally called afternoon, haha. I think I was a bit careless with my preparation today because it was a bit bitter and cardboard tasting. This isn’t necessarily one of my favorite black tea blends, but I think it’s just a nice standard cup. I think it would be nice with some milk or sugar, but I don’t generally add anything to my tea, so I may need to experiment with that in the future.
