I thought I had reviewed this, but I guess not.

At first sniff: Smells of spices and cherry or that sweet yoghurt smell. I also smell almonds. It’s pleasant with a little sour at the end.

At first steep: Smells the same, sweet and sour kind of. I had mine today as a latte with whole milk and stevia and was very creamy and pleasing. I did enjoy this when I was sick but didn’t get the full benefit of it because my taste buds were off. This one benefits with over-leafing (as do moves DT teas) and also benefits from a bit of a longer steep. In general though, for a blind buy, I would say I am pleasantly surprised.

Yup, I loved this one as well. You should try it with the cinnamon cream honey!

Awesome. I still have a bit left though, thankfully.

I’ve heard that this is quite similar to Glitter & Gold. I’ve not tried the latter but I did enjoy this one and have been contemplating getting it on sale but I don’t think I’d get through the whole 250g on my own…

Tuscanteal

I don’t find it similar to glitter and gold at all. I find glitter and gold is more like a cinnamon heart and this one is more like spiced apple or cherry. Both are good. It’s not a bad black tea, makes a decent latte, so I would recommend it at the price for the sale amount. I know 250g is a lot, but I usually give it away to people as samples etc.

Bio

My passion for tea started at a very young age, thanks to my grandmothers beautiful china tea cup collection. I use to brew Tetley’s or whatever version of Orange Pekoe she had in the cupboard and pick out my favourite tea cup to use. It wasn’t until I was in my late teens that I really started to develop a passion for it. My town had the Urban Tea Merchant and it was there I was exposed to high tea and the very fancy Mariage Freres brand. When they switched over to The O Dor, my girlfriend and I found salvation in going for a lovely cup of tea and decompress with some tea scones.

It has since become an obsession. I have a tea cupboard, filled with a very large variety of teas. I also use the Breville Tea Maker to make my tea. I favour black teas, with a close second being North African Mint Green Tea. Because I have the luxury of working from home, I get to enjoy a wonderful cup of tea every morning, and the journey resets daily.
