21 tasting notes

Ok, I’m going to try this lovely sample today from Katgolik-thank you so much! Looking at the tea, it has gold balls in it; also what looks like sugar crystals, which makes me wonder if I need to sweeten it. It smells nice and cinnamon y; nice.

Now this is done brewing, and I’m waiting for it to cool. OH WOW BABY! this tea literally glitters, like they put fake glitter in it. The glitter swirls and looks generally beautiful. I feel like if this tea is anywhere generally decent I have to buy it, simply to put in clear glass mugs and serve to my friends. GORGEOUS. How did they do that?

The tea….is just decent. I’ve had more cinnamon tea, actually. I feel like they should have added more cinnamon, and it would be PERFECT. I will probably still buy a bit of this tea, just for special occasions because of the glitter. GREAT presentation, average taste. It tastes good with soymilk, but some of the sparkle goes away when you add it.

It’s so pretty!
You are very welcome :)
Try experimenting for a stronger taste ( if it’s too light)maybe longer steep?

The gold balls become the glitter. Della Terra does it too!

hm ok! I actually want to buy a bunch with sparkle like this now, I love it! And I did this time increase the amount per cup, and the steeping time, and it did get a bit better. :)

Bio

Hi all! My name is Katherine Corbin and I am a college student studying English and Business at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana. I love to read, knit, belly dance, sing crazy songs in the shower (or whatever my current location might be…) and get up to general nonsense.

I also love tea (as well as coffee, but be still your judgement on my nefarious infidelity to tea.) I really look forward to trying a lot of new teas as well as learning new things about steeping, types of teas, etc. OPEN TO TEA SWAPS! :) Check cupboard. Love all, hear from you soon? -Kat
