I have wanted to try this one for a while. This round of the GCTTB has been working out super good for me, there are a lot of teas in there I have wanted to try for a while.
I quite like Davids Glitter and Gold so I was assuming this one would be a long the same lines. This dry tea does smell like spice cake/coffee cake. There is definitely a sweet cinnamon scent.
The brewed tea have flavours of the black tea base, it is moderately strong. I am getting flavours of cinnamon and clove. Not really getting any apple flavours. Maybe a light vanilla. At the end of the sip I get a quick, very bitter flavour that I often get with an artificial flavour (I am assuming it is the vanilla).
Glad to have tried this one but I am going to stick to Glitter and Gold I think.
Edit: So as this tea cools, the black tea is getting stronger and it tastes very very earthy and mushroomy. I am wondering if it is pu’erh?? I looked up the ingredients but it is just listed as black tea. Anyway, this one is much better when hot.
