drank Darjeeling by Fairglobe
974 tasting notes

It is pretty much what others said. Pretty much generic, boring blaack tea. I add metallic. Yep, it was quite metallic to me, slightly malty.

I did not had big expectations and this is tea which exactly is like.

Basic black tea, without any super or nice moments, just generic. I would not be surprised if there is no darjeeling at all.

On the other hand; today we celebrated mine and two (of four) brothers birthdays. It was pretty much nice, parents baked a cake to us, we had nice BBQ, but now it is 8 pm and I feel completely tired. I received few gifts (but not so great as Nattie’s and it was less phenomenal too). I got some money vouchers for local sports shop (pretty nice, I need hiking trousers), Jack Daniels (well, it is always nice to have good liquor around, even it’s pretty much basic), Lindt Coconut dark chocolate (you can’t go wrong with chocolate) and biggest and heaviest gift: Bradshaw’s Continental Railway Guide and General Handbook, Illustrated with Local And Other Maps, Special Edition (it’s reprint, but whatever, it is super cool!). As I am railway buff, I prefer going everywhere by train, this book is like a railway Bible for us. It is not that actual (it is from 1913), but it is still very cool and it gives lots of ideas. And last one, and first one I actually received, was a digital copy of Mashinky PC game. If you know (heard about Transport Tycoon, it is very, very similar :) )

So, pretty nice gifts too :) I have hoped for some tea, but yeah, it is better that I don’t get any. They don’t know if it suits well my tastes…

Wow! You had a full day! I didn’t realize realize you are railroad buff! I know it isn’t really just for railroad lovers, but do you have the game Ticket to Ride? Youngest bought the Poland add-on while she was in Poland.

I loved the train ride from Derry to Belfast. The train was comfortable and the scenery was stunning. I have never ridden a train in America. I don’t know if our trains are very nice.

Happy birthday, again! I hope your tea gets there soon and that you will find some things you love!

Ashmanra: I don’t have the game, as it is quite pricey here, but heard about it! Maybe once I will have it. As well many other railroadiana.

And thank you for another birthday wishes :)

I am drinking almost everything. Tea bag collector who moved to wonderful world of loose leaf.

Trying to rate differently tea bags and loose leaf as tea bags have usually worse quality.

Photographer now and then. Postcrossing and geocaching member. Very curious person. Logistics student (should finish in June 2021).

Buried in tea right now. Is in my cupboard (trying to be updated) which sparkled your interest? Write me, I would gladly share with you. But I don’t want anything in return now :)
