Tea Notes #12 | Afternoon Blend

Available in Fortnum's stores and online.

About our Afternoon Blend

We’ve been serving our bold and refreshing Afternoon Blend at teatime for more than a century - 107 years and counting, in fact - and the blend of exceptional leaves from both the higher and lower regions of Ceylon make for a versatile and robust brew.

How to brew

Use boiling water and brew for 3-5 minutes. Serve with milk or without, depending on your taste.

What to eat

As the name implies, our Afternoon Blend is delicious with teatime treats like our famous Scones or moist and moreish Battenberg.

And for those in need of a hearty biscuit to dunk, there are no better selections than our Stem Ginger Biscuits or crunchy, chewy Flapjacks.
