Description

In this classic Royal Blend notes of Flowery Pekoe from Ceylon uplift the maltier Assam to create a very traditional cup of tea. First blended for King Edward in 1902, Fortnum’s Royal Blend has been popular ever since for its smooth, honey-like flavour. These innovative pyramid bags are spacious enough to hold whole leaves rather than the small cut tea in regular teabags. This makes a difference to the quality of the brew because whole leaf tea has more flavour and complexity.

How to Brew

For every cup you wish to make, add a rounded teaspoon of leaves to your pot. Add freshly-boiled water, brew for 3-5 minutes, place your strainer over your cup and pour. For tea bags, simply brew in your cup for 3-5 minutes, remove and enjoy.
