From Fortnum & Mason

Inspired by Fortnum’s deliciously fiery Bloody Mary cocktail, this black tea blend infuses the flavours of fresh tomato pieces, black peppercorns, chilli flakes and zingy lemon peel. A cup of this bloody good cocktail tea will give a bold flavour punch to brunch.

Every silky tea bag is specially packed in an envelope to be enjoyed anywhere at anytime.

So, when I opened up the teabag wrapper, this smelled horrible and I instantly because like ten times more hesitant to brew it up than I was in the first place. However, it’s actually super mild in terms of flavour and none of that rank, overly spicy and strongly salty/umami tomato aroma is really coming through in the taste. Like, it’s a bit tomato-y and I can feel the presence of some spices in the blend on the back of my tongue and throat – but it’s almost bland!? I can’t believe it, but I’m actually finding myself craving MORE Bloody Mary flavour – which is just insane to me because I hate tomato juice/the taste of Bloody Marys…

Also; I’ve always wondered when companies come up with teas like this: do they actually expect the average consumer to like the taste profile!? Or is it purely for the novelty factor? I definitely think it’s a mix of both in most cases, but I’d be curious to see exactly what the “percentage split” is for most companies…

EDIT: Ok, I can taste everything a little more strongly as it cools – but it’s still a good balance of flavours!

I bet this would make a good addition to soup stock

I can definitely see that!

Yeah, I wonder about the reasoning for teas like this too. I mean, I get a small-batch blender doing it for the novelty, but I feel like larger companies cater more to the masses, who are not so interested in novelty…

I saw a recipe today for bloody mary chili.
