I’ve had quite a few cups of this lately, and it is excellent for a regular, bagged tea! It lends itself well to extended steeping, and is mild enough to be relaxing.

I know that many people are in love with this tea, and while I thoroughly enjoy it, it is not my favourite tea from David’s. I tried steeping it longer today (I think around 9 minutes), which helped “fill out” the tea, but I still find the flavour a little separate from the tea (if that makes sense at all).

I wasn’t too sure about it until I had it with a bit of brown sugar and cream; then it was love.

Not sure why, but this was slightly less “oily” this time around. Excellent as usual!

Although I always steep my teas with boiling water, I tried this with slightly cooler water. It wasn’t strong enough for my at 6 minutes, so I ended up closer to 10. I would stick with boiling water!

My mom brought this home for me in the spring, and I must say, I’m extremely impressed! It smells almost too sweet at first, but it definitely mellows out. Being that it is ice creamy, milk works really well in this tea. I find I usually don’t have to add any sugar at all, it’s sweet enough on it’s own.

drank Glitter & Gold by DAVIDsTEA

Glitter and Gold is another one of my daily teas. It’s sweet enough that nothing has to be added, and I like the fact that my tea is a little bit sparkly! I suppose you could add milk but I don’t know if that would downplay the sparkle factor. It’s an excellent cinnamon tea!

205 °F / 96 °C 5 min, 45 sec

I was a little hesitant when I first smelt the tea, but once it was steeped, it was fantastic! It is a natural pumpkin taste, which is a great change from starbucks flavouring. I find it best with a little bit of sugar and a few drops of milk (though the milk isn’t by any means necessary). Great fall tea!

I love this tea, David’s has done an excellent job with this one! It smells a tad sweet but once steeped is perfect. It’s quite mellow, but still perks you up!

This is my staple tea, I have a cup every day! It’s like a London Fog without the extra sugar, and is a great alternative to standard Earl Grey
