Everything nice
Some teas are great conversation starters. All you have to do is steep a cup and before you know it, people are asking “what is that wonderful smell?”, “did someone just bake a cake?” and of course, “can I have some?” This comforting black tea blend is no exception. With the warm aromas of cinnamon, cloves and vanilla, it smells and tastes like a spice cake fresh out of the oven. But consider yourself warned: you might want a little bit extra to share around…

Ingredients: Black tea, apples, cinnamon cassia, cloves, carrots, marigold petals, natural vanilla flavouring.

Interesting. Not a bad or good interesting. Just….interesting. This was on my wishlist ever since it came out, but now that I’ve tried it, I’m going to take it off. When it comes to tea that I’ve bought from a website/that is the nearest store is quite a ways away, I feel that I should be WoWed by the tea, otherwise I don’t see a point in getting it. Particularly if I can get similar tasting teas for cheaper and nearby. I’ve heard this doesn’t have ginger in it, but the taste of this reminds me alot of Gingerbread Latte Rooibos that I’ve been getting from my fave tea store in Plymouth. So if this tea comes back, will not be buying a bag.

Last thing: there is a strange little sour note in the aftertaste.

Samples Only TTB

I was afraid that there would be too much cinnamon since it was listed first. Then I realized that they were in ABC order.

There is a nice balance of flavors. Not too much cinnamon. Really a lovely blend. Quite a tasty tea which was very really terrific as a reward after cleaning all the windows and screens.

When I am allowed to buy more tea… this is one I would probably buy. It might be a very long time before I’m allowed to buy more tea. Buying 37 teas and getting two TTB is a little excessive.

So, I might be wrong, but I don’t think I’ve reviewed this one yet.

I’ve had this tea the last few mornings (with the exception of this morning) and this tea is amazing! It has been calling out to me in my cupboard ‘cause it didn’t quite fit in the holder of the bags of tea that I have, so I thought I better start drinking it up. I don’t remember all the details about this one, but it is a sweet tea that is almost like a really mild chai tea to me. I’ll have to update this one if I find it’s different, but the last few mornings, that’s what it’s really kind of tasted to me.

I love the sweet, slightly spicey taste of this one. I should have gotten more of it.
I’ve been really good and haven’t bought any tea in over a month!! I know that doesn’t sound long, but for me it feels like it has been ages.

Anyways, they don’t have anymore of the website, so I’ll just enjoy what I have. Delicious!!

A decent tea. It reminds me of Glitter and Gold a lot, with much of the same taste and scent. I think I’ll have to try this one again to be reminded of the flavor, its been a while.

I ordered this on a whim with an online sale, and I was not disappointed. Best with a bit of milk and some brown sugar, I think, but perfectly fine black, or just with a bit of milk. Not a lot of spice flavor but it’s very nice for a lightly spiced black tea. Not something I would seek out, and I’m not heartbroken that it’s been discontinued, though I do prefer it to the Glitter & Gold that replaced it.

This smells very much like David’s Spiced Fig. This tea has a deeper flavour than the spiced fig though, which is good because although I liked spiced fig, I found it too weak. It is also in smaller pieces and not as heavy, so the bag will last longer. The aroma reminds me of Christmastime when I was young and Grandma used to make fruitcake.

Took a try of this tea at the store, and oh my goodness I had to have some, so I bought 25 grams. Its a lot like Glitter and Gold, except with a slightly sweeter, less ‘mature’ flavour? I can’t tell which I like more. Super cozy, comforting kind of tea!

Tastes just like pumpkin pie! So great for a rainy autumn day :)Even the second steep (and the third!) is really good, and maybe even better because it brings up the spices. I must admit, I love this tea!!!

This is one of the Fall Collection teas I was so excited to try! Spice cake in a tea? Sign me up! I was sorely disappointed by this one though. It tastes like grain, the kind you feed to horses. It even smells like horse feed! I just barely got through the first cup. I made some more a few weeks ago, intent on finishing the little bit that I had. I oversteeped it and added some sugar. Definitely got more spicy heat, but the rest was much the same. This is a very flat tea that doesn’t deliver on its spice cake promises.

To be honest, if you don’t like the taste of steeped cloves, don’t buy it at all because it’s a dominant taste in that tea. The apple is weaker. Overall, though, I found it very comforting. Grab a blanket on a cold night and there you go!

Flavors: Cloves
