This tea is pretty good. It has a musty aroma. Brews quickly, which I like. I added cream and sugar.

Darjeeling (Loose) from Ahmad Tea

Style: Darjeeling Black Tea – Region: Darjeeling, India

70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
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 an interesting aroma. It brews really light, but it's surprisingly flavorful. A little bitter for me, but pretty good. I added cream and sugar.

Jun. 14th, 2013

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.

Darjeeling from Twinings

Style: Darjeeling Black Tea – Region: Darjeeling, India

67 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
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...

Mar. 14th, 2013

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 like this tea. It smells kind of smoky. The flavor was a little bland when I first tried it, but started tasting more flavorful as I was drinking the cup. I added cream and sugar.

This tea is pretty good. It's smooth. I added cream and sugar. I found it confusing that it was listed as a sachet when it's really a teabag.

Mar. 20th, 2012

This tea has a distinct peachy flavor that I think I've tastes in other Darjeeling teas, and I don't like that flavor in teas. It has a little bitter aftertaste, which I don't like either, and it doesn't have a very strong black tea flavor that I usually like in strong black teas. It has a nice, interesting aroma, thou...

Dec. 3rd, 2011

I don't know how to describe this tea. It tastes a little bit fruity, kind of peach-like maybe. It has a sort of smoky aroma. I don't think it's quite my cup of tea. It's a little too weird.

Darjeeling Tea from Novus Tea

Style: Darjeeling Black Tea – Region: Darjeeling, India

53 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
Oct. 11th, 2011

This tea is okay. I'm not sure I like Darjeeling very much. I'm starting to think I don't, in general. It has a weird flavor that I don't particularly like. This one isn't too bad compared to other ones I've tried, though. I drank it with cream and sugar.

Darjeeling from Two Leaves Tea

Style: Darjeeling Black Tea – Region: Darjeeling, India

53 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
Oct. 9th, 2011

This tea has a sort of vegetable-like aroma that I don't like much. It's interesting, though. It has a kind of peachy flavor. I'm not a big fan of fruity teas, so I don't like it a lot, but it's okay. I added cream and sugar.
