Another one of my very old teas. The best-before date for this one is 10 months ago, but I was able to detect honey notes and some muskiness. I’m still undecided about Darjeelings in general, but this wasn’t too shabby for a tea that’s probably gone stale.

Described as having an exquisitely honeyed aroma and a light fragrant taste of ripe green muscatel grapes – this tea does not disappoint. I could see where Twinings were coming from with the aroma, but to me it was more soft straw than honey. Taste was subtle; almost Champagne like in terms of a light but focussed taste. After hints of grapes, just as described on the box. A gorgeous tea to be drunk in the finest of china cups. Black – no sugar and served just 3 minutes into steeping.
