I’m very particular with my black teas. Unlike greens and whites, I can’t stand the taste of a black tea that isn’t perfectly steeped — there seems to be a lot more room for “error” with other teas before they start affecting my palette.

That being said, glitter and gold doesn’t seem to pose that problem for me. Maybe it’s the sweetness or the cinnamon. Whatever it is, a sip of this tea is like a sip of Christmas in a cup. Sounds cheesy, I know, but this tea is awesome. It does the trick on cold winter mornings. Definitely one to try!

This tea has beautiful citrus undertones, reminiscent of Citron Oolong — another one of David’s Tea blends I adore. The depth of flavour is one that is deep and tasty. I just can’t decide whether I like this better than Citron Oolong or not. Explains why I keep both in my cupboard!

Don’t get me wrong, this is a fine tea. Beautiful green tea with pear — how could you go wrong. It’s just that there’s something that’s almost chemical or unnatural about this tea. It might be there’s too many ingredients? I don’t know.

At the end of the day, this is a great tea and it tastes fine. Personally I just need to get over the overly candy scent of the leaves and other ingredients. I think next time around I’ll go for a simpler blend.

I’m torn. It’s good, but it doesn’t seem like it should be…

What a delicious tea. I love coconut in my tea, and the combination with rooibos is a sure hit! Had a strong cup this morning and might have another one later. Simply delicious :)

There’s something about this tea that puts me into a different frame of mind. Whether it’s from David’s Tea or at a Japanese restaurant, the flavour of toasted rice with green tea is one that puts me at peace. A truly divine tea.

This tea is a bit surprising. The taste is a bit different from what you’d expect when you first smell it. The aroma it gives is super sweet, but once steeped it’s almost slightly bitter. It’s really nice (I’m not a fan of super sweet). This is one I’ll be purchasing time and time again.
