drank Darjeeling Tea by Nordqvist
1154 tasting notes

This morning needs a good start to the day so my first cup is this Darjeeling. I am house and dog sitting for my parents as they are visiting my Grandad in Wales a few days before his heart operation.

The instructions on the back of the tea bag’s sleeve states to steep for 2 minutes with boiling water.

Colour: Apple Cider
Smell: Floral with a hint of dryness

Taste: Very light with hints of floralness and a rather bitter. I would say this is roughly average for instant Darjeeling but I don’t really think it tastes that much like a Darjeeling. It seems to have something else to it.

At the very most it’s a cup of relaxing tea but next time I will have milk and perhaps even a sugar to take away the very bitter taste which lingers afterwards. I would also not drink this if I wanted Darjeeling. Average for a black tea though.

Boiling 2 min, 0 sec

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.
