19 tasting notes

This is slightly nerve-wracking. My first tasting note. I feel like I don’t know what I’m doing… Well, I don’t. But I decided to start with something I know and love, Glitter & Gold.

I spent a couple of minutes sniffing this tea as the water was about to boil, simply because it smells so incredibly lovely. The mix of vanilla and cinnamon make me wish this was a perfume I could splash on for a night out. Seriously, to die for. And then once it’s all steeped and done, it’s so pretty I feel bad drinking it! David’s Tea is right. It looks like a gorgeous starry night. Well either that, or a really cool lava lamp.

Okay, but now the important part: taste! I’ve been taking myself off of sweeteners, slowly but surely. So first, without honey, then with. Without, it’s a very light tea. It has sugar crystals and the sweetness is barely there, but lingers on my tongue after I’ve sipped. I really like the taste of cinnamon, but it’s very light with this tea – something that even cinnamon haters might enjoy. I’ll try tricking my mom into drinking this. I won’t tell her there’s cinnamon it in (she hates that cinnamon can be overpowering). Honestly, I like this just fine without honey. But let’s add a drop for kicks… There’s not much of a difference to be honest. The tea is naturally sweet so it doesn’t really need any honey. Hooray!

I love this tea. The combination of glitter, vanilla scent, light cinnamon taste and a touch of sugar do it for me.
