Fortnum's Famous Tea

At Fortnum’s we provide an exceptional range of teas from every corner of the globe, from the traditional to the truly innovative.

Take Afternoon Tea

The elegant Diamond Jubilee Tea Salon is an oasis of calm in our busy Piccadilly store – and the perfect place to enjoy our famous Afternoon Tea.

A Short History of Afternoon Tea

More an occasion than a hot drink. Rehydrating dried leaves is one thing; creating a formal occasion with scones and cream quite another. We have a past Duchess of Bedford to thank for the inspiration. Gas lighting also played its part.

The Perfect Cup of Tea

Making the perfect cup of tea is truly a work of art. Our resident tea expert explains how to brew, serve and enjoy the perfect cup of tea.
