Theres something lovely but slightly unsettling about drinking a sparkly tea. And yes it does actually sparkle. The silver cachous actually give the tea a glittery sheen.
sparkles aside, it is a lovely tea. It has such a strong toasty flavour with a lovely sweet apricot taste as well. I love the really strong black base to it. I love this base lupicia uses (I think its the same base as cookie and joyeux noel – two of my favourite teas).
Dont steep for too long or it will be awfully strong.
