drank Glitter & Gold by DAVIDsTEA
1196 tasting notes

I can’t believe I haven’t gone back to this tea after all these months, and that I didn’t make the mistake of not getting more when my boyfriend stopped at DT for me. So this is finishing what Kittenna sent me, and then I have that.

I also got my replacement bubble teapot but I think it’s still not up to par, but now I feel like a jerk if I ask them about it again. I know it’s their job to make me happy and all but now I’m like seriously, is everyone with this gold winter tree one having paint chips and I’m just really picky? If they weren’t so obvious flaws I guess I wouldn’t be so bothered but I feel like once you notice them, they become obvious flaws.

Anyway. I remember the first time I drank this I really didn’t notice that it was so glittery (duh, name) because I used a t-sac..although I can’t remember now if I used one of my white mugs or black mugs, which could also have probably made it difficult. So I used my black mug and wowowow SO PRETTY.

The spiced orange flavor is perfect for a day like today, overcast and at the time I was drinking, it was still raining. I steeped it below the recommended time but I think it could do the 4 and not be terrible for me.

It also went perfectly with my breakfast, pumpkin pie oatmeal I cooked in a water bath in my slow cooker all night. Sooooo good. Since I used that Nutcracker Sweet tea for the water in the recipe, there were already elements of this tea in there, in addition to adding more cinnamon and cloves in there. Perfect match!

oh oh hey! my tree on my brand new still in the box bubble teapot is not all painted on either! and one of my tree mugs has a weird dent blip in the side too.
and i thought about asking for a replacement, but they already sent me a free gongfu cuz of order shipment problems.
and i just feel like a whiner but i’m not sure what to do. let me know what you decide to do.

I posted it to their facebook page just to see if anyone else had probs like that, so now knowing there’s definitely other people, I really don’t even want to bother. Kind of sucks that it’s so poorly made so I don’t think I will ever be purchasing any other pretty things from them again since whoever’s making them for them does poor work.

eek that sucks. I wanted that teapot.

also I have never tried tea in oatmeal but I keep seeing it done. I must try that!! I just bought a bag of chewy thick cut oats that are super yummy. I have a bunch of chai, I bet that’d be good in oatmeal.
