Today is the last day of my 365 Days of Tea challenge! It’s gone so quickly, it feels odd to be at the end already. I saved this tea until last because it strikes me as a celebratory kind of blend. I’ve got a good feeling about it!
I had to try this one, literally as soon as I saw it. It has sparkling wine flavouring, and gold shimmer. Sold! The scent of the dry leaf upon opening the pouch is similar to opening a bottle of prosecco – alcoholic in the best possible way! Strong, though. Unexpectedly so, given that this is tea.
The scent holds even once brewed, and the gold shimmer is really pretty. It’s not quite as gaudy as David’s Glitter & Gold used to be, but it’s not subtle either. I tried to capture it in my photo for my facebook challenge album, but it turned out to be impossible. You’ll just have to take my word for it!
In terms of flavour, it’s really nice. It’s rare that a tea claiming to taste of wine actually does, but it’s true of this blend. Prosecco is the first thing I tasted! The pomegranate is there too, as if you’d added some to a glass – juicy and tartly fruity, but definitely a background flavour. It’s all about the wine here!
I’m glad I picked this one up. It’s a really nice festive treat, and an excellent way to round off my challenge. If you can try this one, you absolutely should!
