drank Darjeeling by Bigelow
42 tasting notes

When it comes to bagged Darjeeling, I pick Bigelow everytime. Nevermind that their samples never arrived to me this last Spring. The second flush shipment this year was quite nice. By the way, if you want to make sure to get your selected season of choice, buy directly from Bigelow and avoid second-hand retailers who tend to sit on their inventory. I prefer the maltiness of Ceylon teas most of the time, but an occasional Darjeeling really challenges your preferences.

How does this compare to Twining’s Darjeeling?

It all depends on the time of year and the harvest in which is packaged. I can depend on Bigelow because I know what time of year to buy the first flush and so on. There’s nothing wrong with Twinings but I don’t know when they package their harvests. :)

Bio

British-born supporter of the Monarchy and of traditional tea times (including quitting work at 4:00 everyday!). I’ve no patience for herbal infusions as my palette was trained with blacks and greens. I’ve traveled extensively whilst in the Royal Navy and have had ample opportunity to sample some of the world’s best teas. I import several varieties and spend alot time blending.
