Did You Know?
So, while it certainly sounds elegant, high tea is distinctly lower-class than the leisure-class tradition of having a "low tea" of light snacks followed by a more elaborate, later supper. Incidentally, "low tea" is a phrase that has largely dropped out of popular use, "afternoon tea" is more representative of how the British would refer to the luxurious tea parties of the scones and crumpets variety (as well as more casual afternoon affairs).

I have ordered tea forte before and love it. The flavor and quality are full bodied and wonderful. I take advantage of the sales. It's a great treat for me.
The box is really beautiful and the tea is probably the best I've ever had.
So smooth and absolutely delicious with a beautiful aroma. Very well balanced!
Have loved this tea and its smooth flavor.
Have loved this tea and its smooth flavor.
The tea is very smooth and tasty; packaging is awesome (square bottoms on the bags make it easier to dipping and setting aside). Gave some as gifts and everyone really likes it.
I get this tea for a friend for Christmas, she jsut loves this tea!
If you enjoy a great cup of tea, but like it mellow then you should start here. Once you do, the brands you buy in the store will be good, but you know you deserve great.
Consistent taste from each infuser. Quality is in surpassed.
Great taste with that added boost to get my morning going.
Tea Forte's lemongrass ginger tea is my go to herbal tea. It is refreshing and great a night.
The tea I really do enjoy.
They have the best English breakfast, I don't care for the Earl Grey from here.
Timely delivery. Excellent tasting. Highly satisfied. Looking forward to next special offer.
This is a fine tea. I really enjoy it.
I love the black Tea! Also, got the amber sugar. Tea Forte had up on their website that the sugar was NOT available?! Called them and they explained the mislabeled some of the sugar pouches.......so... I got my sugar!! how nice ! Thanks for the help Tea Forte!
In my experience.......boutiques are things that are that little something extra and this tea is just that. It has great flavor is presented so uniquely and the company had great service. I love it.
I am a Brit - and an avid tea drinker...this one tops them all! Will not drink anything else to start my day... Kudos to "Tea Forte" for getting this right. Highly, highly recommend!
I get this tea from my daughter every year for Mother's Day and Christmas it is my absolute favorite. I can't imagine starting my day without it.
I've tasted many English Breakfast Teas, and this one is by far my favorite. It's malty and flavorful, and tastes rich with the addition of milk and sweetener.
5 Stars +++ The BEST English Breakfast tea, a must-have for me daily in the morning, delicious, smooth, wonderful taste, never bitter never too strong. I drink it black. I love Tea Forte teas, this one is my favorite. Just ordered another box. The event box is economical, great option. Love the packaging too. I was "turned on" to Tea Forte at a restaurant, fell in love with Tea Forte, sought it out and have been buying it since.
I recently stayed at The Roosevelt Hotel and the server brought me this unique package of tea with the pyramid shape and the unique Leaf at the top. Well my curiosity was peaked and I was so surprised by the deep robust taste that I kept the package. I am now purchasing some to add to my various tea collections. If I could give it a 10 star rating I would. Thank You for having such a wonderful tasting tea.
As an American, I have been enjoying this tea twice a day while staying at the Hyatt Regency here in Perth... at first intrigued by the display packaging, I have found this tea to be all the folks at Tea Forte say it is... shared recently with an English colleague, she has verified the quality as only the English can: "quite good"!... this product line is destine to have a special place in my Wyoming ranch pantry / kitchen!
I recently had this tea at the Cuisinart Resort & Spa in Anguilla purely by accident as a replacement for a brand I requested but they didn't have that morning. It became my request for the remainder of my stay. I am so into this tea!!!! I also used to add teaspoonssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss (not a typo-that's how much sugar I used and coffee was worse) of sugar in my tea. This tea is so smooth with no bitterness, I now use NO sugar at all. I am hooked for life. Once I introduce my co-workers to my new found healthier love, I'm positive it's only a matter of time before they become a lifetime drinker of Tea forte.
This is a great everyday tea. It is a must have!
This is a really smooth tea and is very pleasing to the senses. I love how distinct the flavor is.
First tried this tea at the Omni Mount Washington Resort in New Hampshire. The pyramid shaped tea bag caught my attention and I haven't stop drinking it since. It is so smooth!!!!! If you have a cup of this one and a cup of another brand, the difference is extremely noticeable. Everyone that I have served it to, that is the first thing they say about the tea......SMOOTH!!!! This is a perfect tea to have when sitting on the veranda at the end of the day and relaxing for that finishing touch.
This is the best English Breakfast tea I have ever tasted! I've tried many brands but after steeping to the strength I desire they all left a bitter taste in my mouth. But not this one. I steeped it several minutes, more than normal honestly, and after pouring approached my first sip hesitantly. It was perfect! I drink my tea naturally, that is no milk, cream or sugar. So it's important for it to have a taste that lives pleasantly on my taste buds. I cannot recommend this tea high enough! Drink it leisurely with your morning paper or mid-day with your favorite daytime TV show...Ellen anyone?!
This goes so well with a bit of sugar and milk. I only steep it for 3 minutes, otherwise I find it to get a little bitter, but it's delicious if you get the timing right!
We had our Ignite Stream Energy Convention at Omni Hotel in Dallas and each morning I had the pleasure of having two of these cute little triangle bags of tea. What a pleasure to have a really good cup of tea to start the day. The flavor was excellent, the packaging was adorable & I can't wait to order some for home! Thank you Omni for introducing me to this special "tea"
Had the pleasure of trying this for the first time at the Omni Corpus Christi, and was very pleased. Wonderfully, full-bodied flavor and an exceptionally clean finish. I'm definately adding it to my morning ritual.
I have always been a grocery store tea buyer and I came across this tea, and thought to myself I did not know tea could smell this good and when I tasted it "out of this world delicious" now my husband and I are hooked.
I first tried this tea at the Ritz Carlton at Powerscourt in Enniskerry, Ireland. From that moment on I was hooked. I had never tasted anything so smooth and delicious. Like the Irish I take this tea with milk. It's oh so good. I tracked down Tea Forte and order this tea as soon as I returned to the states. My mom had the Raspberry Nectar and was simalarly smitten.
"This English Breakfast tea from Tea Forte is a perfect example of an bold, invigorating breakfast tea. It is a blend of Assam teas, which are known for their strong flavor with malty undertones." <p>Read the full detailed review at: <a href="http://www.teareviewblog.com/?p=5744" target="_blank">www.teareviewblog.com</a>
I 1st had the pleasure of trying Forte English Breakfast Tea @ a hotel in Las Vegas, I immediatly wrote down the name of the tea, promising myself more of it in the future. Smooth flavor, with relaxing effects for a morning Tea drinker are important to start a day, & this tea provides such characteristics. I am an American raised to enjoy English Breakfast tea, & I promise you that there is nothing about this tea that is disappointing, great with & without milk. Enjoy!
