Review: Fortnum’s Famous Teas – 60 Teabag Selection

While we were in London, we stepped by chance in this famous shop in Piccadilly. Fortnum & Mason don’t sell only teas and coffees but also  confectionery, wines, biscuits and so on. The shop is itself worth of visiting. The atmosphere inside it is very polished and refined,  everything is well displayed. It is absolutely a pleasure for the eyes.

Here is their official website:http://www.fortnumandmason.com/ where you can shop online. Although, the delivery price for no-UK customers is highly-priced: £15 for the rest of Europe, £30 to USA and £40 for the rest of the world.
There is the possibility of getting loose leaves and choose your own blend, but everything is quite expensive, so I opted for this set of black tea (which is my all time favorite):

It contains 6 different kinds of black tea:Breakfast blend ,Smoky Earl Grey ,Earl Grey Classic,Queen Anne, Royal blend, Afternoon blend. It costs £12.50 for 120 gr of products, you’ll find 10 bags for each type.Here’s the link to this set in their website: http://www.fortnumandmason.com/p-5027-tea-bag-set-classic-tea-gift-set.aspx

They all smell rich and strong inside the bag, even more where you put them in your hot water cup. My favorite of the set is Afternoon blend, it is very full and substantial.

My packaging is a little bit ruined because I had to stuck it in my luggage and the flight back home, however all the packaging are amazing -styled! Look at them… are so cute!

Would you buy it again? Yes, I would, I am really pleased with it and it’s a little spoil I do allow myself for special occasion. However, I won’t buy it from the website due to the over-priced delivery service. I will only re-buy it if I am going to be in London again.

How is Balance quality-price? The quality is very high, as I think it’s the price overall, but you also pay for the polished and detailed style.

Have a nice cup of tea then! :)
