I’m not one of the more sophisticated tea drinkers but I’m quite pleased with Twinnings’ Darjeeling when I want a black tea with a bit more smooth sophistication than the typical everyday blend or a breakfast tea. I remember thinking when I first tried this it would be a shame to turn it into a commonplace by drinking it too regularly. Goes well with Charles Dickens.
