This tea is not part of Whittards usual range: they were selling a few pouches of it in the summer of 2011 and I happened to pop one into my already bursting basket on the way out :)
This Darjeeling is delicate, and brews to a very light yellowish-green colour with a delightful gentle citrusy smell. The tea is smooth, with a slight astringency and a wonderful (yet not overpowering) citrus flavour. I love to drink it in the evening after supper or as a refresher in the summer. Wonderful tea if you can get your hands on it.

Profile

Bio

An Israeli computer programmer with a passion for tea (mostly bought in yearly shopping sprees in the UK), particularly black, oolong and white. I don’t generally enjoy flavoured teas or herbal infusions, but if a tea sounds interesting and smells nice I’ll most definitely try it. I drink several cups of tea a day, usually one or two in the morning, another one after lunch and one or two in the evening. My favourite tea so far is Lao Cong Zi Ya from Norbu Tea, but I’m constantly trying new teas. Only in the past year have I branched into Pu’erh and non-roasted oolongs. Finding good tea in Israel is difficult, so I import most of my teas from yearly visits to London, or from online retailers. If you see something in my cupboard that sparks your interest and you would like to swap with me, then please message me. I’m almost always up for a swap.
