This tea looks gorgeous. It smells very much like cloves, very Christmassy. However, the taste is more regular mild black tea with a hint of spice (cinnamon and clove), a bit drying in the mouthfeel. It is not overly sweet, though it says that it has some sugar in it. It would be great for Christmas season, and winter generally. Makes a great gift, as it looks festive. Would not drink iced. I would buy again, but not my favourite.

I'm a sucker for pretty things, and this tea is really gorgeous. It contains gold sugar beads and little silver sugar crystals.

Before, during, and after steeping, the smell is awesome. It's spicy and sweet smelling. I infuse this for around 5 minutes.

The taste is very good, and the spiciness apparent in the aroma comes through nicely. I think this would be excellent as an iced tea, but I have not tried that yet. Since the tea itself contains sugar crystals, it has plenty of sweetness. I wouldn't suggest adding milk because of the effect described below.

Here's the best part about this tea: as it steeps, the gold and silver sugar dissolves, and as you look at the tea, you can see tiny little sparkles. Like the title says - it's glittery! This is probably best served in a dark cup to really get the full effect.

It would be a lovely tea for the holidays, for guests, or when you're just feeling like you need something beautiful to drink! This one just makes me happy. :)
