2020 Advent Calendar from The Tea Girl – Day 3
Well this one looked exciting right when I opened the small tin – glitter! I can’t say I’ve had glitter in too many teas, I think the only one was Glitter and Gold by DT back in the day…so this was kind of cool! My brain also was like “hmm is this safe to eat” lol, so I admit, I did leave most of it at the bottom of my cup at the end haha. But it certainly looked magical :D
As for the tea – I am not the biggest fan of fruity green teas to begin with, and I was a bit nervous with the overwhelming fruity smell. I brewed it with 175 degree water for about 2 mins.
The flavor was decent…it was fruity, with a touch of astringency/bitterness from the green base. Not my favorite green tea (as I like my green teas without flavor mostly haha), but it was interesting and I will finish off my sample with no complaints! Probably not one I’d order again personally. I will see if I can pick out more distinct flavors with my next cup, as I found it rather generic fruit rather than defined strawberry or apricot flavor. Happy to try it out though, and the glitter factor definitely made it worth it!!
