Recent Tasting Notes
It is pretty much what others said. Pretty much generic, boring blaack tea. I add metallic. Yep, it was quite metallic to me, slightly malty.
I did not had big expectations and this is tea which exactly is like.
Basic black tea, without any super or nice moments, just generic. I would not be surprised if there is no darjeeling at all.
On the other hand; today we celebrated mine and two (of four) brothers birthdays. It was pretty much nice, parents baked a cake to us, we had nice BBQ, but now it is 8 pm and I feel completely tired. I received few gifts (but not so great as Nattie’s and it was less phenomenal too). I got some money vouchers for local sports shop (pretty nice, I need hiking trousers), Jack Daniels (well, it is always nice to have good liquor around, even it’s pretty much basic), Lindt Coconut dark chocolate (you can’t go wrong with chocolate) and biggest and heaviest gift: Bradshaw’s Continental Railway Guide and General Handbook, Illustrated with Local And Other Maps, Special Edition (it’s reprint, but whatever, it is super cool!). As I am railway buff, I prefer going everywhere by train, this book is like a railway Bible for us. It is not that actual (it is from 1913), but it is still very cool and it gives lots of ideas. And last one, and first one I actually received, was a digital copy of Mashinky PC game. If you know (heard about Transport Tycoon, it is very, very similar :) )
So, pretty nice gifts too :) I have hoped for some tea, but yeah, it is better that I don’t get any. They don’t know if it suits well my tastes…

The tea or tea bag?
So, I didn’t like the last darjeeling I had either. I’m starting to wonder if I just don’t like darjeelings, or if it’s a quality issue since I’m back to swapped bag teas after a binge of loose leaf. I’m still not sure what flavor to specifically associate with a darjeeling, so who knows. The only way I finished this cup was with a lot of brown sugar dumped in.
Bought this today from local Lidl. Don’t have high expectations, but…
Yes, this smells like good Darjeeling should. But wow, this is very plain tasting. Doesn’t taste anything. This needs either sugar or milk.
After adding sugar, this is much better. This tea doesn’t go high in my ranks, but its cheap, Fair Trade and Organic. Maybe honey would also add some taste to this.
