I’m never really wowed by Twinings teas for some reason. This is nice enough, but not really anything special about it.

This light golden black tea from the foothills of the Himalayas has a delicate and unique character that is likened to the Muscatel grape.
Darjeeling teas are grown in the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains in northeast India. The high altitude, soil and climate of the Darjeeling plantations contribute towards the unique and delicate taste of this tea. Twinings Darjeeling uses the finest first and second flush teas (those picked in the spring and summer) in this blend. Darjeeling is often regarded by connoisseurs as one of the finest teas. Darjeeling is best drunk black or with a touch of milk.

Found this while trying to find something with caffeine in my friend’s suite. I half remember drinking this when I was little, but I don’t remember how I drank it. Anyway, Darjeeling is a nice light tea, definitely not a heavy breakfast tea. I might want to get a box for myself to replace my Bigelow English Teatime.
I have this in the “Light Classics” packaging which says this is a “delicate tasting tea”. Uh. Not.
I first followed the instructions on the envelope, which said to steep for 3-5 minutes. I decided to go with 3 minutes. I took a sip, and promptly spit it out. I know Darjeeling is astringent, but geez. That was horrible.
However, steeped a little under 2 minutes, it’s alright. I like the light golden color, and the faintly floral smell. Having it now iced with a little sugar, and it’s like the watery stuff you get in restaurants. I’ll try to use it up this way (I got a box with 50 bags. sigh) but I don’t really like it enough to buy again.
