thanks Marcel for this one! I have only had a few of David’s Teas blends and I’ve been a bit half and half. This one smells really wonderful and the idea seemed pretty fun. I can’t quite put my finger on what the smell reminds me of though. Maybe vanilla cupcakes? There are some deep chocolate/citrus notes that are reminding me of that orange blossom oolong I had once. The shimmer in this is quite fun!
I think that my water may have been just a bit cooler than 195F, but the resulting tea was still very flavorful and I really enjoyed it! I was surprised that the black tea was not bitter at all after such a long steep. The main flavors that I am getting are a bit like that vanilla and slight citrus cupcake. I even get small hints of chocolate, but that may be the base. I think that to really be good it needed a thicker mouth feel that I seem to be missing here. Overall, I do like it, but I don’t think I’d order it for myself.

Did the tea get glittery? haha. It’s supposed to… which is part of the magic of this little tea. I thought it tasted of cinnamon and vanilla the last time I had it. Glad you got to try it and thanks for the swap :-)

It was glittery! That part was really fun. I noticed it kind of coalesced in the bottom of the cup. They were really thinking out of the box imo when they made that one! I think I may be getting a bit stuffed up, so I didn’t get any cinnamon. I’m going to brew up the rest later and see if I can get any cinnamon.
