Twinings special darjeeling.
This tea is a fresh and sweet flavor, a bit of astringency.
It is delicious tea with sufficient balance.

Excellent Darjeeling tea with a light color, very little bitterness, and a powerful and complex flavor. A floral, wine-like tea. Some of the leaves are still greenish; as is true for many Darjeelings, perhaps this tea was not cured for as long as other black teas.

This tea is best served without milk. To do it justice, you should warm the cup or teapot by filling it with boiling water and emptying it — before adding fresh boiling water to make the tea.

I have not been able to find this tea in the United States, although I have found other Twinings offerings such as “Twinings Darjeeling” and “Twinings Ceylon Orange Pekoe,” which are packaged in the same type of tin. I found this “Twinings Vintage Darjeeling” in a grocery store when I was visiting Austria.
