2808 Tasting Notes
This tea has a billion elements in it and yet I am finding it to be a watery, jumbled mess. There is nothing that stands out but rather all the flavors are muddled together. It is not horrible but really not great either. This is not something I plan on restocking once I finish the 50 g I got for free (thank god I didn’t pay for it) last Halloween.
This is a tea with a pretty distinct flavor which means you really need to be in the mood for it to truly enjoy it. When I first went about brewing the cup, I was not really that excited but smelling the rich cream scent of the dry leaf made me happy that a cup was a mere 5 minutes away. Now I am happily sipping away at the nutty, creamy cup of sweetness :)
Thank you to both MissB and Cavocorax who sent this my way. My first cup was amazingly delicious but all subsequent cups have slowly made me lose interest. I still have a fair bit more so hopefully those cups are better.
Tastewise, this is very, VERY heavy on the ginger and just a hint of apple as opposed to my first cup which was all apple with a dash of ginger to warm everything up.
To balance the cup of Glitter & Gold, I felt this was the perfect caffeine-free counterpart for an Oscar night. So, I am sipping on this as I finish my supplemental application, watch the Oscar red carpets, and try ti resist the amazingly delicious piece of Cheesecake Factory Carrot Cake in my fridge.
I got this as a sample in my last DAVIDs order and since I already had a full tin at home I decided to bring the sample to Florida. I am having it tonight in honor of the Oscars as I figured the sparkles and gold was quite fitting.
Unfortunately, the taste is a little weak today. It is still sweet though so I am finding the cup pleasant enough just not as delicious as usual.
This tea sparkles! I love sparkly teas! However, I think I will be keeping Glitter & Gold around to appease my sparkle love as it is more consistent. I find this to be a huge hit sometimes and not so much others. This particular cup is alright but not the best I have had. I am working my way to a sipdown in the near future so hopefully the other few cups are better.
