Twinings Black Tea Darjeeling Loose Tea Tin / 100g/ 3.5oz.

Darjeeling in North East India isn’t easy to get to. Even the famous antique toy-train has to wind its way carefully through valleys and round mountains. But it’s worth it for the region’s speciality: tea.

The altitude gives Darjeeling its light, delicate taste and shimmering gold colour. So take a sip and escape the world on a journey of your own.

We believe that how you make your tea is equally as important as the tea you use, so here are our tips:

– Use freshly drawn cold water
– Use water at a “”rolling boil”” (100°C)
– Use 1 teabag per cup or 1 teabag per person in a teapot
– Steep for 3 to 5 minutes (or to your taste)
– This delicately flavoured tea is best drunk black
… and for freshness every time, keep your tea somewhere cool, dark, dry and airtight!

Product Features

  • Oxidation gives black tea its colour and richness
  • Loose Tea Tin (100g/ 3.5oz.)

Twinings Darjeeling tea loose leaf One of my favorite stores has carried Twinings Darjeeling Tea in loose leaf form for years. Suddenly it has disappeared from all stores. The product is great. Tea bags are every where, but loose leaf is difficult to find. The only problem with the tea from Amazon is that the shipping charges are about the same price as the tea. I am still looking for an affordable version of the tea.

Good value and fun introduction to the ‘champagne of teas’ Twinings is known for delivering consistency and value. This tea is no exception.Most of the Twinings Darjeeling blend is black, but you can spot some green particles. The Twinings loose tea has no uncut leaves. The blend uses smaller, less-expensive particles which infuse more quickly than whole leaves.The Twinings tea has enough tannins to tolerate milk or a sweetener. It has some harshness when infusing is done at too high a temperature or for too long.If…
