drank Glitter & Gold by DAVIDsTEA
30 tasting notes

I realize that I have a lot of tea that I tried ( or bought ) in my very early tea drinking days ( ie. 6 months ago ) that I may not have really tested out…..because, there was so much tea in the world and I was a bit overwhelmed, and tried so many things so quickly…..

So, found a package of glitter and gold i had purchased a while ago, and brewed a couple of cups in the breville. I like this one….I bet I will drink it a lot around the Christmas holidays….the black base is smooth, mildly spicy, I taste the cinnamon and a bit of orange…..very nice, the flavors blend well……I will re-buy this at some point……with a bit of half and half and a tiny bit of rock sugar …. Nice treat, but not too sweet…..

It is cool and gray in vancouver…..I had the heat on, how can that be when it is almost June? Well, this is a good cool day tea……I am trying to make “doings chores” more enjoyable by sipping tea as I go……burning a nice “s’mores” candle …. It feels like fall! This is a nice tea!

I know, what is with the weather? I want to begin my explorations into the wonderful new world of iced tea…..but it’s too cold! I am thinking I could shop online for some iced tea stuff tho….then I would be ready…..when/if warmer weather finally arrives…..hot tea on a cool day while online shopping for summer tea and teaware……I like the sound of that!

It’s funny to read back on this log and see that it was only 9 days ago (possibly even less) that it was so cold out. It’s definitely warming up now. Back then I was also drinking teas with Fall and Winter themes, and now I’m drinking more of the fruity summery flavors. Gotta love that there’s a tea for every type of weather.

I know, it seems summer might finally be appearing, at least for me on the west coast. As a tea newbie, I am excited for my first summer full of ( a lot! ) of iced fruity tea! Sounds good to me!

Bio

Vancouver born, and love the city. Fairly new to tea, I found Davids Tea in early 2013 and that is where everything started. So far, my favourites are flavoured black teas, I am on a serious hunt for the perfect black caramel. I also like fruit herbals and tisanes. So far, I have mixed and limited experience with white tea and oolongs – the jury is still out. I don’t like green tea; maybe that will change.

I have tried most of the Vancouver area shops, David’s, Murchies, Granville Island Tea, UTM, and more. Just starting to branch out and order on-line. My initial experiences with Harney&Sons have been great, and I look forward to trying out many other tea brands.

I work as a research nurse, with cancer patients. Sometimes stressful but rewarding work and tea is a nice break for me. I love my cat ( that’s Lily) shopping, candles, lush baths, reading, cooking, home reno stuff and going for a relaxing massage. I like checking out new tea shops and learning more about tea. I try to go to the gym and swim when not working or drinking tea.
