I’m a sucker for a glittery tea. Luckily, I also find this one really tasty! It actually tastes like the French Toast Crunch cereal (does that still exist?)

N is for… Night in The Glittering Caves!

Sipdown (1397)!

Thank you VariaTEA for this share – I remember your Steepster review of it as well as your post about it on IG, so I was excited to try this tea! It’s a pretty cool concept – I very much like how the use of glitter/luster dust was tied into this nerdy tea reference. Tickles all the right buttons for me, plus steeped the tea just looks hella pretty. I love luster dust so much and I am very glad to see so many other tea companies are beginning to start working with it!

(It can be a bit gimmicky, imo, when you over do it – but balanced, it’s fun!)

I find the taste of this blend a little generic for my tastes but I appreciate what Happy Turtle was going for – notes of caramel, sweet nuts/pecans, and marshmallow all do come across to varying degrees but it makes for a little bit of a generic “sweet” profile if you don’t actively think about all of the parts making up the whole. I like sweet teas a lot typically – this is actually similar in feeling to DT’s Sweet Potato Pie – but I think maybe I was just not REALLY in the mood for it today??

I don’t remember my note about this one – I do remember the insta post b/c this tea was so pretty!

This was significantly better while still hot. As it cools, it’s not great tbh. It’s a spiced tea and while hot the spices were an alright balance, but are becoming more and more muddied as the temperature drops. With that said, this tea may not be the best flavorwise but it’s incredibly pretty both as a dry leaf and steeped.

Happy 129th birthday, Tolkien!

Night in the Glittering Caves is certainly a glittery tea! It’s fun to look at dry and steeped and shimmers in different ways in both forms. My cup has a very sweet smell to it. The tea has a slight bitter tang to it and there is a powdery almond flavor, but overall it’s nice. The base is light and hard to taste under the aromatic perfumy flavors that linger in the finish. I get the pecan flavors too. It seems to fall a little flat as the cup cools off. Other than the glitter, there isn’t much that makes me think caves or LOTR, but it’s fun to have a tea dedicated to it today anyways.
