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.

My tastes in tea have changed, so I should update this as well. I find myself leaning more towards rooibos and herbals, if only for their great ability to chill in my travel mug for hours and not get weird on me. When I have time to properly brew a cuppa, I lean towards white teas (which I only steep for 30 seconds) and black teas (which only get 2-3 minutes from me). I cannot stand green teas, they’re too fiddly for my tastes. Oolongs are great, but a bit fiddly as well. However, I love watching oolongs open up in my looseleaf brewer. I’m slowly discovering mates and falling for them…there are many I look forward to trying!

So…yeah. That’s me and my tea!
