Fortnum’s Tea Adventure

15 Jan - 26 Feb 2020

In this special series of limited-availability masterclasses, Fortnum’s in-house tearistas will take you on a journey from leaf to the shop floor, giving you tips and tricks on tea-drinking ‘etiquette’ and the history of tea. Be prepared for tastings – and since no tea is an island, you’ll also discover their perfect biscuit pairings served alongside. Fortnum’s tearistas also won’t be afraid to answer those necessary, hard-hitting questions: how do you dunk a biscuit properly?
