7 Tasting Notes

drank Darjeeling by Twinings

Horrible; made me retch. Could someone direct me to a tasty darjeeling?

Try Darjeeling the First Flush or Darjeeling the Second Flush from Lupicia teas. It’s a significant improvement and much more pleasant than Twinings’ version.

In most cases, loose leaf is preferable. I would recommend ordering some sample Darjeelings from Upton or Adagio, which are much less expensive than Indian vendors, due to shipping fees.

Malty and hearty. I’ve never tried this tea black, as when I first tried it I was not experimental with how I took my tea, but it is certainly delicious with half-and-half and a pinch of sugar. In this sense, I find it very coffee-esque. I would certainly purchase this tea again.

Yuck. I’m not exactly sure what was wrong with this tea. Maybe I’m not a chamomile person, but even so this tea had such a perfumey taste it made me gag.

Aromatic and tasty. Good with or without sugar. Also, best very hot. Could have been a little spicier, but still pretty good!

drank I Love Lemon by Bigelow

Not purely lemon; has an herby note. Tastes like a Ricola lozenge. Very soothing and good with honey; I’m sure it’s wonderful when you’re not feeling well. I would certainly purchase this tea again.

Foul. Very tart and it’s more flowery than minty. Not a fan!

Steep to taste. This tea is fine steeped for less than a minute if you’re in a rush, or as long as you like when you’re lazy and leave the bag in the cup (though i would recommend 1-3 minutes, as steeping it too long gives it a bitter note). Great with or without sugar or milk. Spicy and sweet and absolutely fabulous. 100 rating; one of my favorite teas. I could only get mine in Peru but I’m sure you can get it at Latin American groceries.

I’m Caitlin (Keitorin is a Japanese pronunciation) and I’m a tea person.
So you can assume I’m a little off my rocker.
I’m still fairly new to adventures in tea, but I love it and would like to find some gooduns!
