drank Darjeeling Tea by Twinings
1154 tasting notes

This is one of the tea’s that I was given for my birthday. I am drinking this tea and eating some left over birthday cake (twas my birthday yesterday) . Such a nice way to end the day _

I do not have any sweetener or creamer for the analysis of this tea.

Colour: Soy sauce, a very dark brown.
Smell: The very floral and unmistakable fragrance of Darjeeling. It smells as fresh as a green tea but with much more floralness and yet slightly bitter.

Taste: A decent cup of tea overall, what I expected from Twinings. Quite fresh but not the best as it leaves a slight bitter after taste, a little too bitter considering the full flavour altogether. That could be taken away nicely with half a spoon of sugar (much more than that and you would miss the full flavour of the darjeeling). Perhaps a little milk instead of the sugar would suffice. I shall try that next time. A nice cup of darjeeling though for those of us who do not always have the time to brew from fresh leaves.

Overall I would say it’s very relaxing and so easy to make meaning that you could transport this everywhere (work, home, friends house etc). It also goes lovely with my birthday cake…I think this is a must have at work tomorrow towards the end of the day.

Bio

I’m 26 years old from Leicester, England named Kayleigh. I have a wonderful husband called Richard whom I am very lucky to have in my life.

I started off many years ago drinking herbal and fruit teas which over time peaked my interest in trying new types. Eventually I began to import and sample many different teas and cultures which I still do today. My life goal is to try as many teas and ways of having tea as possible.

Tea wise my cravings change constantly from pu erh one month to jasmine green to the next and so on.

I adore cats and have four of my own called Honey, Cassie, Mr Soots and Ivory.

I also have two fish tanks which thankfully my cats have no interest in. They house an array of tropical fish and shrimp.

I am a proud vegetarian and have been for the majority of my life. When I say vegetarian I mean just that as well, no fish or seafood, no chicken now and again, no animal products such as gelatine and cochineal.

I also enjoy watching Japanese Anime and horror films.

I am always up for tea swaps so if you see anything in my virtual cupboard then please contact me.

A short list to help swapping with me easier though honestly I am not fussy and am willing to try anything. Plus the notes below are usually, sometimes I love a tea that has an ingredient I tend to dislike and other times I hate a tea that I thought I would love.

Likes: Any fruit but especially melon and orange, vanilla, all tea types (black, green, white etc), nuts (any), flowers, ginger, chai.

Dislikes: Licorice, aniseed, clove, eucalyptus, lavender.
