Dec. 24th, 2013

This tea has a sweet aroma. I thought it was kind of mild and watery at first (after brewing it for 8 minutes) but as I get further down in the cup, it seems to taste fuller. It has a kind of sharp, sweet flavor. It's surprisingly astringent for a Darjeeling tea. It leaves my mouth feeling kind of fuzzy. I added cream ...

This tea has a cinnamon flavor that's kind of overpowering. I can still taste the other flavors, and it tastes okay. Maybe a cinnamon enthusiast would like it better. I added cream and sugar.

This tea has a very sweet aroma. It tastes kind of bitter and watery, although it has an interesting crisp, fresh flavor. It tastes like black tea, which I like. It has a lingering bitter aftertaste that I don't like so much. I have mixed feelings about it. I added cream and sugar.

This tea has a slightly smoky, sweet aroma. The tea is kind of dry tasting, but it has a crisp flavor. It's a bit bitter when I brew it strong enough. It tastes kind of like lapsang souching. I added cream and sugar.

Picture of Darjeeling

Darjeeling from Twinings

Style: Darjeeling Black Tea – Region: Darjeeling, India

67 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5 Overall: 7/10
Mar. 16th, 2013

This tea is pretty good, actually. I'm surprised because I don't usually like darjeeling or Twinings that much. I often find Twinings teas to be too bitter, and darjeeling teas to be too sickly sweet/vegetal tasting, but in this tea, the qualities seem to balance each other out, and it tastes like a normal, pretty good...

I'm not usually a big fan of darjeeling teas. It tastes kind of bitter and vegetal, and I don't like those qualities. It's not as strong and rich as the kinds of black teas that I like more. It tastes kind of dry. I added cream and sugar.

I love this tea! It has a perfect blend of spices, and the base tea is strong enough. By the look of it, it appears to be heavy on cardamom. I added cream and sugar.

This tea smells kind of like mulled cider. The flavor is a little weird with the flowers. I don't usually like floral teas. It took 8 minutes for me to brew it strong enough. I added cream and sugar.
