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).

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!
