From Twinings

This light golden black tea from the foothills of the Himalayas has 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.

The flavor of this nice tea is light and buoyant. Although I like my tea strong, there is plenty of flavor in this blend to keep my tastebuds stimulated. Even after five minutes of steeping, it does not cross over into bitterness. This tea would be equally enjoyable at breakfast or mid-day.

I’m never really wowed by Twinings teas for some reason. This is nice enough, but not really anything special about it.

It’s quite nice for bagged, and if you don’t steep for too long, it’s great by itself or with just a little bit of milk.

I find this to be a more subtle tasting tea than Earl Grey or some of the other Black teas. You can get away with a few infusions before the taste starts to really degrade.

It’s good, but nothing special.

That was a good cup of bagged Tea!
I think it is a all-round good tasty experience, that you get from this Tea.

I drank this Darjeeling without any things added to the Tea, that I mostly do with Tea.

I’m sure that I will drink this Tea again!

Slight smoky flavor – not my favorite.

Found this while trying to find something with caffeine in my friend’s suite. I half remember drinking this when I was little, but I don’t remember how I drank it. Anyway, Darjeeling is a nice light tea, definitely not a heavy breakfast tea. I might want to get a box for myself to replace my Bigelow English Teatime.

I have this in the “Light Classics” packaging which says this is a “delicate tasting tea”. Uh. Not.

I first followed the instructions on the envelope, which said to steep for 3-5 minutes. I decided to go with 3 minutes. I took a sip, and promptly spit it out. I know Darjeeling is astringent, but geez. That was horrible.

However, steeped a little under 2 minutes, it’s alright. I like the light golden color, and the faintly floral smell. Having it now iced with a little sugar, and it’s like the watery stuff you get in restaurants. I’ll try to use it up this way (I got a box with 50 bags. sigh) but I don’t really like it enough to buy again.

Bought a box of this in bags to try, since I had never had darjeeling tea before. Since I am not a floral tea person the scent of this turned me off so I cannot judge the tea taste.
