I was disappointed by this yesterday, and then I was disappointed that I was disappointed. I made this in my little tea for one set, and before I added the hot water, I added a bit of soy milk and a touch of sugar. I only let it steep 2 minutes, as is my habit with black teas. It turned out weak. I was so, so sad! I actually didn’t finish drinking it.

I have enough for a couple cups left, but if it doesn’t improve its performance soon, this one many not be a rebuy.

Don’t let it trick you. I bought a sample and didn’t like it much. Then one day I made it wonderful, so I bought more. I haven’t been able to recreate that wonderful day yet, and have a bunch left. I’m hoping one day I will go on a cinnamon crazy and need this tea. I’m starting to think I hate cinnamon, after the Cinnamon Hearts and Saigon Chai disasters.

Well, I’ve had it wonderful in the past, and it made some damn good applesauce, so I might just use it for that. I just don’t have room in my cupboard to replace teas I only sorta like, you know?

Glitter and Gold is definitely a cold-weather tea for me.

there must have been some floral add that my body didn’t like. I couldn’t even finish the cup, it made me nauseous… atleast I think it was the tea (if not the customers of walmart email that I was forced to read by a coworker!!!)

try crushing or grinding the spices before you steep it. I find that a lot of spice based teas taste weak because the flavours haven’t been woken up yet.

Ah, tea. My love for you is ever changing. At my last update, I was all about the rooibos and now I hardly drink it. I only occasionally had an oolong and now I have one just about every day. I’ve learned the art of resteeping and coldbrewing and kombucha. I have a lovely little tea pet named…well, I haven’t decided on a name for him yet. I also have four live pets, a tabby cat named Rosabella Francis (Bella for short), a ginger cat named Orange Julius Pekoe (Pekoe), a white and grey cat named Earl Jean Grey (Earlie), and a red foot tortoise named Da Hong Pao (Pao). So if you see me referring to my girls, I don’t have kids, just animals.

As for tea, I love oolongs, herbals, and black tea. Since I am no longer working, I no longer feel the constant need for a mate energy boost, though I do still reach for it from time to time. I also drink less matcha, though I do throw a spoonful or two in when I’m making smoothies. Most of my tea I drink coldbrewed, and since I discovered coldbrewed rooibos was giving me headaches, I’m drinking less and less of it. Straight pu-erh is not a thing I enjoy, but there are a few flavored blends I like. Greens are still too finicky for me to bother with hot, but they make great cold brews.

I am by no means a tea purist. I greatly enjoy flavored teas and I put sugar in all of my teas. It’s just how I do.

I think I’m going to name my tea pet Mr. Turtle. Even though he’s a tortoise.
