This is quite good for a bagged tea…A nice medium strength taste with a sweetness at the end of the sip. I like this one better than the Spring.
My go-to Darjeeling when I’m sick and need cup after mad-hot cup. More muscatel and body that the Stash Darjeeling Spring. Miles ahead of Twinings Darjeeling/
1 bag for 250mL water @ 95C. Steeped 4 minutes.
From the moment the water hit the leaves,I knew i had a better (to me) Darjeeling on the way than th DavidsTea Darjeeling I just callously tossed down the drain. The first scent is a high but earthy spiciness. Even in the bag, the leaves look tippy, with lots og green bits. This is a second flush, so the liquor and body are medium rather than light. No woodiness. No bitterness. LOTS of muscatel, and a sweet finish. An excellent Darjeeling, especially for a bagged tea.
1 sachet for 250mL water, covered and steeped a good 10 minutes while I showered.
Oh, mad-hot steeped tea right out of the shower. YUM.
This Darjeeling, one of my faves, does not get bitter with a long steep but does get very fruity — sunshine fruit with a hint of plum, plus some sharp Muscatel. A lovely Darjeeling blend.
1 bag for 250mL water, bare.
An old favourite. Really good for bagged Darjeeling. Light body, but not as thin as Stash’s Darjeeling Spring. Unmistakeable muscatel taste. Light to medium brown liquor. Gets a bit plummy when steeped over 5 minutes — I like that — with a very faint floral scent, almost of roses. For reasons I do not understand, this Darjeeling tastes better when made one cup at a time versus made in a pot. Refreshing.
