7 Tasting Notes
Not just for Afternoons! A refreshing darjeeling.
So much better than Earl Grey. Delicate and fragrant. You must get the loose leaf though for those beautiful cornflower petals that float in your teapot.
Ultimate comfort tea before bed, full of flowers.
A real treat, delicate rose flavour with soft white tea. I drink it with milk even though that breaks with tradition. The longer you steep it, the better it tastes, never seems to go bitter. Leaves/bags can be used several times.
This is the tea they serve at my favourite local cafe. It is mild, nicely scented and the tea bags are loose and very generous. As an iced tea with milk, it is perfection.
My second choice for cheap Darjeeling because it is the only Darjeeling I can find at supermarkets here. Even then I can only seem to find it as teabags! Not a delicacy, but definitely drinkable. Twinings as a brand is consistent and trustworthy.
My favourite daily Darjeeling. Cheap but delicious with a nice fruity flavour with hints of floral when you get a good batch. I’m naughty and buy the teabags. Best with a tiny dash of milk.
