Mellow… beautiful brew color… not entirely sure if the sugar pairs well with the tea. Will have to try it again. Very strong clove flavor.
“I've definitely changed my opinion a bit that this tea and Pumpkin Chai are super similar, but they are still closely related, IMO. Love the sparkles in this one, even though I don't much get to...” Read full tasting note

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*.

Stacey: I think I get what you were saying earlier; DAVIDsTEA has a black tea base and this is it. I’d like to try this one with my grandma, I think, because it reminds me so much of orange pekoe which she loves. It’d be fun to have a clear glass to get the whole effect of the ‘glitteryness’, too. This tea is another not-too-crazy-pretty-solid-wouldn’t-scare-anyone-off tea. Simple, relaxing, and sparkling. 7.5/10
Brooke: Yep. I love the glitter, I think that’s really unique… but I think without the visual, this tea is quite normal. It’s a good breakfast tea; it’s got some sparkle… but damn. If I have to stub my toe every time I want a cup, I’ll pass. It’s not worth the throbbing ache I get to deal with for the next day or two. In all seriousness, it’s a decent tea, but the “ooh ahh” factor is in the sparkle, not the taste. 6.5/10

This tea was actually given to me for free at a DT store when they had run out of the 911 tea that my mom was looking for. Yes, that’s right. 100g of this godly tea, all for free thanks to the kind hearted employees of my favourite tea emporium. I had originally tried this tea at a friend’s house who offered me some in thanks for letting him try my Alpine Punch. Not sure what the tea even tasted like, I was excited to try it for the glitter that appears in your tea after steeping it. I got so excited about the steeping process that I actually purchased a clear glass traveler from David’s with the bamboo lid in order to steep this and have everyone else see the magic that unfolds when the tea is ready to drink. Not to mention the quality of taste, this tea is a definite favourite
