Tea Forté

Today's mail included a tea pot design Get Well card from Linda J. in Kentucky with a packet of Tea Forté inside. 

I remembered reading Linda's March 22nd post about the tea on her blog, Friendship Tea.

The packet said it was a robust, organic, black Breakfast Tea, so I knew it would be perfect for helping to get my day started after my shower.

The packets are pre-measured loose tea to provide a 12 oz. cup of tea.

Doesn't this look like the perfect way to start a day?  This Assam tea from the Sewpur Estate  in Northeast, India, definitely is a full-bodied, malty, robust tea.

I normally don't use sugar or milk in my tea, but when I read the back of the packet it stated that milk and sugar complimented the tea.  So I added a small cube of rough cut brown sugar and a splash of 2% milk and it was deliciously smooth.  

You can read all about Tea Forté products at their website, Teaforte.com.

Thank you, Linda!


  1. Looks like the perfect way to start the day... and I love the pretty tea cup!

  2. A sweet and thoughtful gift! And you chose such a pretty teacup to compliment the tea!

    I visited a tea room in Arizona recently that used Tea Forte' sashets. My tea was delicious! I usually drink my tea black, except in tea rooms --- so I had mine with milk too.

    I hope you are continuing to feel better and better!

  3. What a thoughtful friend that knows just the right thing to send a tea lover. Just gauging from the photo I would say milk for sure would be nice in that tea. Take care and continuing getting well.

  4. Hope you are feeling better...the tea looks wonderful! What a treat. Your teacup is charming. Happy Easter~

  5. Glad you have had such a good "nurse" at home and so many lovely flower deliveries. I hope you are starting to feel better. The tea from Linda sure looks delicious in that pretty teacup. Take good care.

  6. Love the card AND the the idea of including the tea packet!
