drank Ice Cream Cake by DAVIDsTEA
62 tasting notes

Is not a very happy camper right now. So I saw this tea and wanted to try it. Now I read some reviews that people said it had stevia in it. And I hate! stevia I don’t know just doesn’t settle well with me. So I tripple checked the ingredient list on there website to make sure it didnt. And it had no stevia in the ingredient list, so i thought they must have changed the ingredients so yay no stevia.

So couple days later the tea arrives I get all excited try this first. And what do I taste stevia! Look on the ingredients on the package and its different then the website! Its has stevia in it. I’m not going to rate this tea yet cause I dont know how I feel about it.

Its kinda sweet tea, but I get that stevia taste that I hated! in southern bell tea. Gah Ill try this again sometime soon but for now Darn you wrong ingredient list!!

write a strongly worded note on the website :) But in all seriousness, I’d at least say something. Worries me a little when things like that are wrong since it would leave me skeptical about what other things that might have “missed” as an ingredient. thankfully i have no allergies/hatreds yet..

Cedes

It worries me too because I do have allergies/ sensitivities. I sent them a email saying they should properly advertise what is in there tea and I wouldn’t have gotten this if I knew what was in it. Its just so frustrating!

Blech, this was one way too sweet to me. Too bad you ended up having to order a full pouch of it.

Cedes

Yeah it sucks but I tried it with a splash of milk and its more drinkable now :)

i haven’t tried ice cream cake, but birthday cake seems to have a strange ‘film’ issue that makes me feel like i’m drinking a slight bit of liquid plastic.. which i probably am. i mean, i know it’s the sprinkles that are making that happen, but i’m kinda surprised davidstea would think that was a good idea.
i keep trying to drink what i have but it’s taking a long time, i always drink the creme caramel first.

Try doing a quick 30 second steep with boiling water and throwing it out. The second steep will be much more drinkable.

Cedes

Oh good idea I’ll try that thanks

I’m super interested in trying Ice Cream Cake and Southern Belle. If they don’t work out for you I’d love to trade or something.

Gosh I’m so horrible at these things. So my name is Cedes. I just recently started drinking tea. I pretty much like all the tea that I’ve tried.

I have 2 dogs that are rescued. I am a very big animal person.

My favorite tea at this very second would be dt banana nutbread. I like more fruity teas then plain teas. I’m not one for just regular tea.

The only tea place I’ve tried so far is davids tea. But hoping to try some new tea brands. My new thing is trying matcha. Got some coming in the mail. So yay to trying new tea!
