From Twinings

The light golden black tea from the foothills of the Himalayas is considered the champagne of all teas. Expertly blended with 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.

Meh. Not sure what the fuss is about. It is fairly light, and I agree with some commenters who say it is better without milk or sweeteners. But I didn’t think it was anything special, and certainly wouldn’t spend money on this again in the store with other choices available. It has a nicer grade of material in the bag/sachet than some other Twinings teas, but it is unremarkable beyond that. I also noticed — and apparently this is common with Darjeelings — that it gets a bit bitter if oversteeped.

My second choice for cheap Darjeeling because it is the only Darjeeling I can find at supermarkets here. Even then I can only seem to find it as teabags! Not a delicacy, but definitely drinkable. Twinings as a brand is consistent and trustworthy.

Maybe I’m just weird, but I actually like the slight bitterness of it. I have a bad habit of using quite a bit of sugar in my tea, but I’ve been using a lot less in this stuff. Definitely not my favorite, but its not bad at all. I could see it being very good iced, too.

In a pinch this tea isn’t the worst tea I’ve ever had, especially considered it is mostly dust and shake, shoved into a tea bag. It is lighter than most of the black teas in its category and I can detect the faint (very faint) profile of darjeeling but you really have to focus on the taste to pick it up.

From how Darjeeling teabags go this one is actually pretty good compared to most even though it is not that good of a tea overall. I was given this box of teabags as a gift and I will be passing it on to somebody else who will hopefully enjoy it a lot more than I did.

its a great Darjeeling with a nice dark color and a delicate full flavor,
not comparable with the Twinings teabags

Did I somehow get a bad box? It tastes like hot water, even steeped for 4 -5 minutes. Definately nowhere near a “champagne of teas”. What a dissapointment! However, other family members and friends like it, which is why I gave it as high a rating as I did.

I’m a fan of this tea, I’m enjoying a cup before bed, made with loose leaves in my IngenuiTea teapot.
