90 Tasting Notes
I got my hands on this yesterday just so I could put my bill up to the amount needed for a free tote; this was a wise decision.
Side story- I always ask God for more patience for the dumb things people do or the things they do out of being oblivious. Well, yesterday I came home with the beautiful clear glass mug (which was also free :) with the stars on it from DT and I was so excited to brew my Glitter & Gold in it and just enjoy it. I brought it in to show to it to my roommate and since I didn’t say anything she took it from me because she thought I made to for her. I was actually able to smile at her and say thank you when she said i was the sweetest and I just went back in the kitchen and made myself another cup and laughed at myself the whole time. -story over.
That being said, this was really good, nothing else needs to be said other than that this tea brewed and had a perfect balance of every flavor listed on the ingredient list :)
Mmmm :) this tea smells so yummy! The flavor didn’t compare to the strong complex smell of the tea though. I shouldn’t have tried to brew this in my timolino trying it for the first time. I’ll be making more of this before work, I was going to make Forever Nuts which is hanging out in the storage compartment of my timolino but I think more of this would be better and I think I’ll add the 1/2tsp I have left of Super ginger to give it a little kick.

Im only drinking this because I’ve been having tremendous difficulty falling asleep at night lately and I’m hoping this will help. Im not a fan of this tea simply because I despise chamomile but I drink it anyway because I know I need it. I’m not reviewing this for the taste as much as I’m reviewing for the potency and ability to help me fall asleep and thus far I’m feeling me eyes get heavy. Good job DT, not only do you make some tasty teas, you make some helpful ones too! BTW this is brewed in a teapot so the tsp and oz are quite large
I decided to get my hands on a collectable tin of this.
Darn it! I’ve messed up another one! I really need to start standing and waiting for the tea to steep… the black tea base is too overpowering for the gentle vanilla and mint flavors. Oi vey. Well, for what it is right now it’s still not too bad, still drinkable.
I had a to-go of this since I wanted to try it before committing to buying. I feel like this tea had so much more potential but having the store make it kinda detracted from that. I’m going to have to commit to 1/2 oz. and brew it to my preferences to see if this really is worth it. From what I tasted in this cup, just slightly peachy, lots of oolong flavor.
