Good Morning tea-lovers!
Here we have Darjeeling from Whittard of Chelsea.
I particularly like Darjeeling as it has a light and delicate taste.
I prepare my kettle for boil and take out my finest china cup ( as you may know a must for delicate teas).
I decant some of the loose tea leaves into my infuser and pour over the boiled kettle water.
I decide to leave the tea to infuse for 3 minutes or so as I couldn’t find anywhere on Whittard’s website for how long this tea should be brewed for.
3 minutes later I pour the infused liquid into my cup and the colour is very golden, just like an excellent quality Darjeeling normally is.
I take a minute to savour the teas aroma and find it very pleasing to the senses.
I take a sip of the tea and I love it!
The tea is light, fresh and of very good quality. I particularly favour the delicate taste on a Monday morning to give me some refreshment after a long weekend.
Whittard of Chelsea describes this tea as-
To taste Darjeeling is to taste the landscape where it is grown. Intermittent rain, sun and moisture-laden mists nurture the century-old tea gardens in the landscape that inspired Rudyard Kipling to craft his stories. The smallest shoots, still covered in dew, are picked by hand at first light to deliver one of our finest teas.
Packed in an environment where nuts are handled.
Overall I would describe this tea as soothing, delicate and very refreshing. Thank you Whittard.
