10 Tasting Notes
I picked up a tiny sample of this tea when I was at DavidsTea over the weekend because I was intrigued by the gold glitter. I don’t know how they do it, but the tea really does shimmer and sparkle. Even the dregs at the bottom of the cup were sparkly. To be honest it is kind of unsettling, but it still made me smile.
The tea tastes pretty good too, nothing special. I don’t think I would buy more of this, but I did like it.
This would be a good gift for a tea-drinking Twilight fan…
This is one of my favourite teas. I didn’t try it for a long time because I have never really liked Red Rooibos, but I’m so glad I finally did.
It is great on it’s own in the evening when I want to wind down from my day, and it’s really good as a base in herbal tea blends to keep them caffeine-free. It withstands over-steeping a lot better than regular tea leaves, so I like to use it in gingery decoctions that I drink all day at work.
I enjoy this tea more than I thought I would. I got a sample of it in my advent calendar, and I liked it so much that I just bought a 125g tin of it when I saw it on sale at my local store.
Once brewed this tea mainly tastes like green rooibos (which is one of my favourite teas), but a bit creamy and sweet. The spices are pretty subtle.
It’s good on its own, but even better with a bit of milk.
