53 Tasting Notes
This tea is VERY cinnamony, which I generally like. However, I don’t know if I’m a fan of everything else that is in it. It seems that whatever fruit is “Christmasy” was added. It is by no means unpleasant, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to drink several cups of it.
The clove is quite strong at first, and the orange peel really comes through on the aftertaste. I’ve only had one cup, so I will add more notes once I’ve done more tastings.
I’m not sure how I feel about this tea. I steeped it for 6 minutes, and still found it quite bland. I kept steeping it for another 3-4 minutes, but probably should have stopped a bit earlier, as I found the tea a little bitter.
I thought there would be more of a chocolate taste, but the hazelnut is excellent. This tea is going to take some experimentation.
This is an excellent alternative to breakfast tea! You can definitely taste the similarities between the Irish Breakfast and Afternoon but this one is a little more mellow. I generally leave the teabag in the entire time I’m drinking a breakfast tea, so I did the same with this tea- great choice!
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).
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.
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!
