After first seeing this tea in store, I was hit by a wave of nostalgia. The gold ball sprinkles took me back to childhood, making and decorating Christmas sugar cookies. I had to pick out a few and just hold them, then ate them, totally brought me back. So I know this is going to be a good tea, no matter what it tastes like.
Now to the tea, it is very good. A little sweet for my taste (sweet on its own without adding any extra sweetener). There is a bold, strong taste of vanilla, the vanilla is almost spicey, but the spice is not overpowering.
The dry loose leaf tea is visually appealing, and for me, this always makes things taste better. There is a sweet aftertaste that lingers on the back of my palate.
I would like to try blending this tea with a chai mix.

Bio

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
