My favourite tea. To me this is the quintessential cuppa, the one that screams THIS IS TEA. it’s my first darjeeling – which for me like many tea lovers was my “aha!” moment. i could probably drink this all day every day.

I just can’t get over the perfect balance of flavour and mouthfeel and aroma.. that being said, it can be finnicky and it’s possible to over or under steep and sacrifice some of that balance. i found this time three minutes, just under boiliing, worked great, and even a second steeping for 4 retained some astringency and just a subtle hint of muscatel.

Darjeeling = bliss.

Great inductive reasoning! Darjeeling = TEA, and TeaEqualsBliss, therefore Darjeeling = bliss!! QID.

Wayne

Correction, that’s deductive reasoning :)

Michelle Butler Hallett

That makes me sound right smart. Cool.

I really enjoyed this tea – my first Darjeeling. Excellent fruity tang and good bite, full enough to stand a drop of milk, but self drinking without. Loved it. Shame they are sold out right now.

Delicious black tea. I have had better Darjeeling’s, but I have definitely also had worse. DAVIDs TEA has never steered me wrong, and this one is no exception.
