drank Darjeeling by Bigelow
141 tasting notes

I had Twinings Darjeeling a couple times yesterday, and having Bigelows otday, it seems somewhat harsh in comparison. The muscatel flavor is there, but the the natural sweetness of Darjeeling is not. Adding more sugar helps, both in bringing out the flavor and in reducing the harshness, but I prefer Twinings with less sugar.

I am a part time college instructor and also work in human resources in a family company. Apart from a rare cup of Lipton I drank in my parents’ home, I am a newbie to the world of tea. I have enjoyed Twinings and Ahmad bagged teas over the past month, and I am now just beginning to try loose leaf teas from Teavivre, Adagio, and Della Terra.

So far, I prefer black tea to green tea, and prefer to add cream or milk and sweetener to black tea. Unless the tea is white, green, or herbal, you can assume that I have added cream/milk and sugar to the tea in my reviews/ratings.
