A new video and new teas from Fortnum & Mason

Do you all subscribe to the emails from Fortnum & Mason in London? I do, and I do not ask for very many emails. Yesterday, I enjoyed viewing this new tea video teased in their latest email. If you view it—and it's just about a minute and a half—watch for the Bloody Mary Tea. That caught my eye.

And so did this … Fortnum's is now offering silky teabags containing loose leaf tea, just as Harney and other US vendors have done for years. Even though I won't be flying to London to shop there anytime soon, I like knowing that my favorite UK department store is getting with the times and offering a more convenient form of their fabulous loose leaf tea!


  1. There's a tremendous uprising against plastic in Britain apparently. And someone told me that the 'silky' teabags are actually plastic and something she avoids using. Do you have any information about what is used to make the teabags? I usually put used teabags in my compost pile, but am now wondering if they will decompose or just sit there forever!

  2. I must admit that Bloody Mary Tea sounds awful to me, but I'm not a fan of tomato juice. I'd love to try some of the other varieties, though.


Thanks so much for taking time to leave a comment! It makes my day to hear from readers!
