I’ve had this before and not logged it, because it was a quick taste while I was visiting with my dad. I thought he might like it, so I brought it out to my farm to have with him one afternoon.
I was in the mood for black tea, but I wanted something warm and light, not overwhelmingly dessert-y. It came down to this one or Ceylon Star, and tonight, Glitter & Gold won. I actually really enjoy this tea. It’s kind of quiet and understated and delightful.
I’ve seen some people compare it to Della Terra’s Oatmeal Raisin Cookie, and while I can see where this comparison comes from, I much prefer this.
(Man, trying to write up a tasting note without my glasses on is kind of tough. Letters all look the same, YARGH!)
EDIT: Sadly, it appears that this tea does not re-steep very well. I normally prefer the second infusion, but not this time.
