This tea sparkles — both literally and figuratively.
The loose leaf has these cute little silver orbs that dissolve fairly well in the steep process. The resulting mid-brown tea has a glimmer effect. Looking into the tea is, indeed, a little bit like looking into space.
But, of course, a tea that’s all show and no go is a waste of glitter-balls. Luckily, this is a yummy vanilla-black with a little bit of extra spice thrown in. The vanilla plays center stage, and the hint of spices keeps the blend from going over-sweet.
If you were going to give this as a gift, I’d suggest going with one of the Tea&Tins’ tins.
I’ve chosen the robot because it’s science-fiction-y.
Though drinking tea in space isn’t, technically, science fiction any more. I found this article online about Chinese astronauts drinking pu’erh in space.
My poor eyesight, asthma, and weak stomach prevent me from being an astronaut, but this tea gets me pretty close.
Here’s the scoop!
