The world of tea and the name of Fortnum & Mason have been intertwined for over three centuries. From the opening of the Far East to western trade, to the first harvest of tea grown on English soil, Fortnum’s has sourced, refined and offered this most delicious of the Earth’s bounties to its customers.

Each generation discovers tea anew, and develops its own preferences. Whether ancient Chinese blends, perfumed teas, or invigorating green or red bush tea, Fortnum’s has sourced the best examples of their kind.

To celebrate this long and fruitful relationship, I am delighted to introduce this tribute to tea and its place in society. Delicious recipes are complemented by the fascinating history of tea, the properties of individual teas and the most traditional of English pastimes – taking tea. If you love tea, I recommend this short compendium for your delight.
