7 Tasting Notes
I’m not one of the more sophisticated tea drinkers but I’m quite pleased with Twinnings’ Darjeeling when I want a black tea with a bit more smooth sophistication than the typical everyday blend or a breakfast tea. I remember thinking when I first tried this it would be a shame to turn it into a commonplace by drinking it too regularly. Goes well with Charles Dickens.
I don’t drink a lot of this tea but this has to be number three on my list of favorites. Because the tins are just about air-tight, the aroma and flavor are preserved very well. I think I keep this tea in the house just so I can pop the tin from time to time to take in the incredible peach tea scent. It’s romantic and dreamy whether smelling or drinking.
This is my everyday tea. I’ve sampled Early Grey from many different suppliers over the years but was never quite satisfied with the usual proportions of bergamot. Stash’s Double Bergamot Earl Grey has it just about perfect for my tastes. In fact, I love the tea so much, I keep the paper envelopes around for a little “aromatherapy” even and especially when I’m not drinking tea. Yum!
