From DAVIDsTEA

Twinkle, twinkle

This deep dark Chinese tea is like a gorgeous starry night, glimmering with gold and silver sugar crystals that shimmer as they steep. Take a sip and the slow suggestion of cinnamon will warm your body. Your toes will tingle and your mind will turn to fireworks, falling stars, late-night seduction. It’s basically magic. (Is it getting hot in here, or is it just the tea?)

Ingredients: Black tea, lemon peel, sugar sprinkles (sugar, rice flour, partly hydrogenated canola oil, shellac, titanium oxide, iron oxide, potato starch), sugar, cloves, natural and artificial flavouring.

i loved this for the aroma- however- when steeped it was too overpowering for me.

I’m very particular with my black teas. Unlike greens and whites, I can’t stand the taste of a black tea that isn’t perfectly steeped — there seems to be a lot more room for “error” with other teas before they start affecting my palette.

That being said, glitter and gold doesn’t seem to pose that problem for me. Maybe it’s the sweetness or the cinnamon. Whatever it is, a sip of this tea is like a sip of Christmas in a cup. Sounds cheesy, I know, but this tea is awesome. It does the trick on cold winter mornings. Definitely one to try!

This black tea is so light tasting and the touch of sweet cinnamon is delicious, especially when both flavours balance really nicely together. The shimmer from the little gold crystal balls makes this tea that much more adorable to me. So good! :)

This is one of my favourite teas ever, it is so yummy. The only problem…David’s Tea only had it for a limited time. I really hope they bring it back!

Second time brewing this tea from my Davids Tea 24 Days of Tea Advent calendar. This time I brewed a stronger tea and added hot milk (almost 1/4C) and 1 t honey, and it’s MUCH better. The aroma and taste are much richer this time, and with the milk it’s a much more enjoyable cuppa. I would drink this as an option between a plain black tea and a full chai.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Clove

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 4 min, 30 sec 3 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

Finally got to try this tea on day 5 of #24daysoftea! I’m a big fan of chai, especially David’s Tea’s pumpkin chai. This chai doesn’t disappoint. It has a slight aftertaste, and is a bit sweet, but overall it is tasty and true to the chai flavor.

The gold stars in the tea make it beautiful to look at. The spice notes are nice, especially for fall and winter. A good tea but not necessarily one I would purchase when there are others to explore.

This is a nice fall/winter cinnamon black tea. I think it is a little less packed with flavor as some of the other teas this season (like Pumpkin Chai or Cardamom French Toast), but still a nice mild Xmas-y tea. It’s not too sweet and not too spiced.

Flavors: Butter, Cinnamon, Cloves

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 3 min, 45 sec 2 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML
