drank Gooey Butter Cake by 52teas
156 tasting notes

Thank you QueenofTarts for this swap!! Though I am slower getting my swap out, I was so excited to get this in the mail last night. I tried it immediately, while my boyfriend Rick looked at the package and said “Is this a real thing? Gooey butter cake? Why haven’t I ever eaten this?!”. I’ve never had it either but I did love the tea.

While I didn’t relate it quite to cake, I definitely got kind of a fresh lemon shortcake flavor out of it. The first time I tried Frank’s teas I wasn’t sure because the flavor of the black tea is strong, but now that I’ve tried a few of his and my tastes have adapted, I LOVE LOVE LOVE that you can taste the quality of the actual tea and not just the flavors in this! This is a delicious tea, something that I would love to have in the afternoon with friends or on my own to just recenter my mind. I can’t wait for another cup!

Love this tea! I think it taste like lemon pound cake, and I’m almost never able to pick up on the cake-y flavor in tea.

nailed it!! definitely lemon pound cake. I guess tea isn’t supposed to taste like cake…maybe just be reminiscent of cake? haha

Born and raised in Connecticut, went to college in Vermont, and moved back to work after a year of service.

I love sweet, decadent, desserty teas the most but I also appreciate a strong refreshing cup of green or white tea. I recently started a matcha smoothie morning, sometimes mate or black tea, then black tea and rooibos throughout the day, and whatever my little heart desires most when I get home from work!

I’m obsessed with Della Terra, DAVIDs, and 52teas because they have the best dessert teas but also have a selection of some more straight things too. Recently tried Simpson and Vail and LOVE them too!!

I don’t have a rating system, I just kind of guess. I think I should make a rating system…

85-100 I want this in my cupboard always
75-85 I like it but I’m not rushing out to buy more immediately
60-75 Probably not going to want more than the sample
40-60 I don’t like this tea, I wouldn’t recommend it, and I won’t drink it again
0-40 This wasn’t even worth the sip.

Ok let’s try that for a bit now.
