This tea came as a sample from Indigobloom – thanks so much!

The dry leaf is indeed very pretty with the shimmers of gold. After I smelled it, this definitely seems like a holiday tea but I’m having it as my after lunch tea anyway. :)

Steeped for 5 minutes via regular teapot method. There is something VERY strong in this tea that reminds me of Harney and Sons hot cinnamon spice. I think it must be the clove element, it’s actually kind of numbing my tongue. There does seem to be a lot of cinnamon too. I guess I’m really not one for cloves in tea for some reason. I don’t know if I can finish this… it’s too spicy for me. I tried adding some soymilk and it was still too strong — but thank you for the sample!

eeep! sorry to hear it wasn’t for you.
Do you have a piao? my fave thing about it is that it sparkles as it brews.
