Here is another to-go cup review.
This was on my radar because so many people go crazy over it, which to me is a red flag. I always seem to hate the ones everyone loves so yet again I put it off… and now I’m not sure why I did. This was so yummy and creamy and fruity. I tasted what the description said and I am grateful for that because I feel like this tea could’ve gone very wrong. Way to go DT, another winner!

I’ll admit, the was not even on my “to smell” list but I had her pull it down out of curiosity sake, and then it smelled so much better than I expected, and then I got a cup iced and it was sooooo tasty. It had a nice green tea flavor with hints of citrus.

Had this as a tea pop to go last night at the mall. It was pretty decent but it was really weak because of the pop. Oh well.

Okay, this is much better when you actually pay attention to how long you steep for! So creamy and vanilla-y with just that faint mint undertone. I know why people rave about this now!

Flavors: Mint, Vanilla

drank Glitter & Gold by DAVIDsTEA
83 tasting notes

I got my hands on this yesterday just so I could put my bill up to the amount needed for a free tote; this was a wise decision.
Side story- I always ask God for more patience for the dumb things people do or the things they do out of being oblivious. Well, yesterday I came home with the beautiful clear glass mug (which was also free :) with the stars on it from DT and I was so excited to brew my Glitter & Gold in it and just enjoy it. I brought it in to show to it to my roommate and since I didn’t say anything she took it from me because she thought I made to for her. I was actually able to smile at her and say thank you when she said i was the sweetest and I just went back in the kitchen and made myself another cup and laughed at myself the whole time. -story over.
That being said, this was really good, nothing else needs to be said other than that this tea brewed and had a perfect balance of every flavor listed on the ingredient list :)

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 5 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

Mmmm :) this tea smells so yummy! The flavor didn’t compare to the strong complex smell of the tea though. I shouldn’t have tried to brew this in my timolino trying it for the first time. I’ll be making more of this before work, I was going to make Forever Nuts which is hanging out in the storage compartment of my timolino but I think more of this would be better and I think I’ll add the 1/2tsp I have left of Super ginger to give it a little kick.
*This is only a temporary rating.

Im only drinking this because I’ve been having tremendous difficulty falling asleep at night lately and I’m hoping this will help. Im not a fan of this tea simply because I despise chamomile but I drink it anyway because I know I need it. I’m not reviewing this for the taste as much as I’m reviewing for the potency and ability to help me fall asleep and thus far I’m feeling me eyes get heavy. Good job DT, not only do you make some tasty teas, you make some helpful ones too! BTW this is brewed in a teapot so the tsp and oz are quite large

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more 3 tsp 24 OZ / 709 ML

Oh how my love of tea has grown since my first sip of Candy Apple Tea from Tea Geshwender six years ago. I am mostly a fan of Teavana and DavidsTea, though I do stray from time to time.
