Twinkle, twinkle

This deep dark Chinese tea is like a gorgeous starry night, glimmering with gold and silver sugar crystals that shimmer as they steep. Take a sip and the slow suggestion of cinnamon will warm your body. Your toes will tingle and your mind will turn to fireworks, falling stars, late-night seduction. It’s basically magic. (Is it getting hot in here, or is it just the tea?)

Ingredients: Chinese black tea, sugar crystals, gold sugar balls, vanilla, orange peel, cloves, natural and artificial flavouring*.

I tried this tea for the the first time in-store today. A friend had recommended it to me and said it was one of her favourites. I tried it and immediately bought a tin of of it! It smells stronger than it tastes but the sweet cinnamon flavour is just addicting! If youre looking for something a little bit different, definitely try Glitter and Gold! It wont disappoint! :)

i loved this for the aroma- however- when steeped it was too overpowering for me.

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 black tea is so light tasting and the touch of sweet cinnamon is delicious, especially when both flavours balance really nicely together. The shimmer from the little gold crystal balls makes this tea that much more adorable to me. So good! :)

This is one of my favourite teas ever, it is so yummy. The only problem…David’s Tea only had it for a limited time. I really hope they bring it back!

First things first, it’s really pretty when it steeps and it tastes good. A great combination. The little bits of glitter that float in the tea are really aesthetically pleasing. The tea itself it very complex: it has cinnamon, vanilla, cloves, and underlying citrus flavour. The vanilla hint really completes this tea and makes it a really enjoyable tea on a cold dreary day.

I was captivated by the glitters floating around in my tea long after it had steeped, I found the tea itself slightly lacklustre as it’s a very light tasting black tea and I personally prefer a strong black tea. It’s a nice cup of tea when kicked up with a bit of sugar, which seems to bring out the cinnamon and clove notes. If it weren’t for the gorgeous glittery effect, I wouldn’t recommend as I feel there are nicer teas with similar flavours. If you want a magical glittery light flavoured black tea, this is for you.

Like it!

Very nice vanilla taste. I didn’t see the crystals «shining» during the steeping though?

However, because it contains dangerous chemicals such as titanium dioxide and tartrazine, I will not buy this again.

Flavors: Sugar, Vanilla
