Hey tea lovers!
It’s Day 13 and Brooke and I are pooped! Luckily, Glitter and Gold is a tea that we both enjoyed last 24 days of tea… so we had a lazy plan to put into action. Interestingly, DAVIDsTEA changed the tea description (see below) since the last time we reviewed it. Maybe this time it won’t cause toes to tingle…
Tea: Glitter and Gold
Tea Description: 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: Chinese black tea, sugar crystals, gold sugar balls, vanilla, orange peel, cloves, natural and artificial flavouring.
Prep: 1.25 tsp, 98°C, 4-7 min
Hey, look, a blog post from last year that was hilaaarious: https://teaconnoisseurs.wordpress.com/2012/12/06/glitter-and-gold/. Click that, pour your tea, and have a laugh.
One thing Brooke and I DO want to note, though, is that clear mugs are a must when enjoying this delectable tea. It’s the only way to see the tea in its full glory. Also, Brooke would like me to remind you to keep your toes safe this Christmas and to bundle them up in warm cozy socks to keep them safe from pesky doorways.
Enjoy everyone! We will be back with more tea tomorrow. : )
Until next tea,
Stacey and Brooke
Everyone deserves a break.
