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.

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.

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.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Cloves
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.
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.
I’m not quite understanding why it’s called sugar and spice. It should be called tea and spice! That’s all there is in there basically. This tea is not the least bit sweet. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still a great tea, but the name is misleading! So anyways, this is a fantastic blend with all of those autumn spices like cinnamon and cloves. It has a nice black tea base. And that’s pretty much it! It’s a very simple tea, and the spices aren’t too strong; so if you like those spices you’ll love this tea :)
