drank Birthday Tea by Adagio Teas
224 tasting notes

A sample of this tea arrived as part of a tea order which was in fact placed as a birthday gift so it was a nice and thoughtful extra for Adagio to throw in. The first few sips of the tea straight came off as a bit bland which was not a surprise considering that it is based off of a mix of vanilla, cream and caramel flavored teas mixed with cake sprinkles so I was forced to add sugar to balance the flavors with the needed sweetness that they demanded. Adding sugar to my tea is something that I very rarely do and due to a lack of white sugar I added brown sugar. In the end it took around 3-4 spoons worth of brown sugar for the tea to end up tasting right, or at least as right as a birthday cake flavored tea can. I’m sure that even with all the sugar that I added that it has less calories than a slice of cake has, but in my opinion it sort of defeats the purpose of tea as an enjoyable calorie free beverage to take one’s mind off things with calories.
