Dilmah and Daintee - English Breakfast Teas
The Daintee tea was part of a three pack gift set I found at the Australian Target store for AUS$15 and it included this very useful tea-bag tong. Bonus! I will be reviewing the other two teas next week.
|Such pretty boxes, too!|
Let's do the comparison!
Being part of a gift set, there were only 10 tea bags. But I now have a cool set of tea tongs and the boxes are very pretty.
First the sniff test - the teabag was nondescript. No outstanding notes. Once brewed, the tea had a slight smokey/tobacco-y scent. Not overwhelming but distinct from the Dilmah. But look! Inside is a Taylors English Breakfast Tea packet!
Dilmah is loose inside a foil sealed bag, and Daintee is individually wrapped Taylors?!
Taylor's of Harrogate? Sweet!
Seriously, I need to wear my glasses - I see it on the box now
I am just in love with Dilmah Teas. I tried it for the first time on Qantas, the hotel had a tea chest filled with different flavors. I was very excited to try their English Breakfast. I tried the Dilmah first and actually said aloud, "I like that!" The fragrance was tea-like and bright. Almost fruitier compared to Daintee.
Here they are brewed side by side -
