drank Red Velvet Cake by DAVIDsTEA
155 tasting notes

Day 6 of my Easter Advent calendar!

Can’t believe I didn’t add a tasting note from when I bought a bag of this. Whoops!

This is a tea I always get excited about drinking, make it, love the smell of it, love the taste of it for the first few sips, then it’s just SO SWEET that I can’t finish the cup. It tastes like artificial cake (because: flavouring), has the oily layer on top of the cup from the chocolate chips (which I’m not totally against…works like lip gloss), and that OHMYGODIJUSTHADACUPOFSUGAR from the sprinkles. I don’t understand the point of the white sprinkles, and the red ones impart their lovely artificial colour to turn the tea pinkish (did you know that red velvet cake shouldn’t ever have red food colouring in it? It turns “red” because of a chemical reaction between the fine cocoa powder and the vinegar added to the cake base. Now you know). It doesn’t matter how long I steep this tea, I always get that raunchy after taste from steeping black tea leaves too long. Boo.

Verdict: I want to love this tea because I love red velvet cake, but nope. Just can’t do it.

I love tea. And I don’t mean like “I like to drink tea in the mornings”. I mean, I LOVE TEA. I also have an intense love for spreading the news that plants and fungi are the coolest groups of organisms on Earth. If you’d like to learn why I think so, you should visit my blog. I write about one cool plant or fungus every day.
