3 Tasting Notes
I didn’t really need tea today, but when I saw this tea in the shop I couldn’t resist picking a pack up.
Firstly there is something endearingly odd about a German tea company being called Lord Nelson, and secondly I love Sikkim – Gangtok is one of my favourite places in the world.
Sadly, I’m not madly impressed by the tea itself. It has a lovely colour, but the taste is a bit generic, and there is a slightly odd bitter aftertaste.
It’s unexceptional, but really pleasant to drink. Probably the best tea I’ve tried from Twinings, definitely better than the English Breakfast.
It’s also the only loose leaf tea available in my nearest shop, so works well as a standby when I haven’t bought anything else.
It’s Twinings, you can buy it everywhere and it doesn’t taste bad at all, but isn’t going to set the world on fire.
