drank Darjeeling Tea by Twinings
46 tasting notes

I have this in the “Light Classics” packaging which says this is a “delicate tasting tea”. Uh. Not.

I first followed the instructions on the envelope, which said to steep for 3-5 minutes. I decided to go with 3 minutes. I took a sip, and promptly spit it out. I know Darjeeling is astringent, but geez. That was horrible.

However, steeped a little under 2 minutes, it’s alright. I like the light golden color, and the faintly floral smell. Having it now iced with a little sugar, and it’s like the watery stuff you get in restaurants. I’ll try to use it up this way (I got a box with 50 bags. sigh) but I don’t really like it enough to buy again.
