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*.

Day #13 of the advent calendar! Another old favourite. Black tea, orange, cloves (and I added some milk)… Mmm. I’m not usually a fan of extra sugar in my tea, but I don’t know, I think it works in this one. Also, it’s pretty and sparkly in my mug. :D

This is my favorite black tea of all time, hands down. I go through so much of this stuff. It’s subtly sweet and I love the spice, and as a very visual person the melted gold shimmers that swim in my cup are a delight to look at.

I absolutely love this tea! Definitely one of my top 5 from David’s Tea. It’s perfect for the winter. It has the perfect blend of cinnamon and the glitter just makes it that much more enjoyable.

When I first started drinking this tea, I had no idea it was chai. Granted, I wasn’t entirely paying attention, (perhaps blindsided by the glistening gold sugar balls!) but it was like-at-first-sip. I don’t love it, but it’s a good tea to have for a bit of variety. I’ll drink it, but I do have teas that I prefer over this one. I do give it points for the shine & sparkle though, that is fantastic.

It was okay. The sparkling was beautiful but I am not crazy fond of the flavour. I can drink it but it won’t get as much attention as some of my other black teas.

Is sparkles!! How exciting!

I’m making this tea to help comfort me a bit as I think about a classmate we all lost very recently. It’s my first time trying this one, and I like the smell. Spicy and fruity.. it’s very comforting, and great for fall.. Exactly what I wanted.

The 4th tea out of 5 that I bought from DavidsTea. This one I actually was pretty okay with. It was very pretty and with a tiny bit of sugar and it tasted pretty good. Something stupid in my mind decided to add a little drop of milk to cool it down. BIG MISTAKE! It went all bitter and gross. I think this is a tea I would get again if opportunity arose, but I learned my lesson about adding anything but sugar to this one!

This tea is very beautiful to brew. The gold sugar dissolves and makes the tea glittery. It is a bit sweet on it’s own, but I wouldn’t want to add milk to it to ruin the glittery effect.

I am going to have to try this one again! I feel like my tiny sample might have been old,or something, because so many of the tasting notes talk about the chai similarities and cinnamon flavors… which I am not getting here.

To me, this was a very nice and mild vanilla black tea with a hint of snickerdoodles. And it was glittery! So I felt like I was drinking pixie dust. I liked it, but I would like it even more heavily spiced, so I’m going to pick up a little bit more when I go back to their store.
