drank Birthday Cake by DAVIDsTEA
24 tasting notes

Cupcake teas…..seriously…SERIOUSLY?!!?!? 8D
Wow…I guess I shouldn’t be that surprised considering DT has little numbers such as a caramel popcorn green tea….buuuuut, I had to try at least one of them. ’Freaking love cake c;

So I settle for this one. The girl who was working that day said it was her favourite out of the cupcake teas. I didn’t want another chocolate tea since I have plenty of those that I need to drink down, and the ice cream one smelled like astronaut ice cream but also super artificial. This one just looked so cute in the tea of the month package x3
And like DT always boasts, this one really smells like birthday cake. Sugary, sweet, and I want it in my mouth…;O

I first try it iced with agave. Delicious! Kinda birthday cake like, but more a general vanilla rooibos kinda thing. I must admit, while it’s tasty it’s not that different from other vanilla rooibos teas I’ve had. Then I had it hot. Ahh, there’s that birthday cake sensation! Doesn’t even need sweetener! Good thing to boot since there’s already unneeded calories from all them sprinkles. I think it was a good choice to have the birthday cake flavour in a rooibos. Any other tea would be really weird or the tea itself would overpower.

But as I drain my mug and I think about the taste…while it’s sweet like frosting, the cakey-ness is more batter like :c Kinda gross really. It’s weird though, some days this is delish, and other days I’m all, “wtf, why did I even buy this?” I really have to be in the flirty, bubbly kinda mood to drink this one.

Then I made it into a latte. Ew. NEVER USE SOY MILK FOR THIS TEA! If I thought it was batter-like before, just ugh…this as a latte using vanilla soy milk..I had to throw my whole mug down the drain! It was the thinnest nastiest batter taste ever D: I’ll try it sometime with regular cow milk and brown sugar, but soy milk….never again. I’ll reserve that for my matcha lattes only!

TL;DR?
Iced, it’s always good, but nothing special.
Sometimes good hot if I’m in the mood, otherwise weird batter taste.
Gross with soy milk.

Tea is a lifestyle. It’s a constant for me. Each day is different, thus variety is very important for my tea shelf ^^

Besides always being seen with a mug of tea in hand, I also frequent piano playing, cuddling teh kittehs, drawing, reading, walking along beaches, bla bla bla…..you get the drift.
