I love this tea. (As I remember) It’s from the german (I think) blenders Haelson and Lyon and is one of the few teas that I think geniunely goes quite well with or without milk although I tend to have it without. It’s cheap, very tasty, and my housemates love it, so it’s a winner in my book
I don’t often drink darjeeling but as I have said before, I really love this blend. I am sitting down in the living room watching the final of the masters snooker tournament, and it’s lovely and homely. I have spent the weekend with friends from university, who I used to wach snooker with. I have had this type of tea for quite a few years and drinking it reminds me of late nights watching the snooker with a slight feeling of panic that exams were coming up and I couldn’t really afford to spend an evening until 12.30am watching wo middle-aged men puzzling over safety shots. Still, it was very absorbing and it still is.
This is one of my late-night teas, which means it’s black and I tend not to have milk. It tastes caffeine-licious so it shouldn’t be late-night tea. It just is.
All gone. What will my cupboard do without this lovely blend of darjeelings?
