Mmmmmm. This is super delicious. Tastes just like cake!!

The smell of the dry tea is wonderful. I don’t quite pick up pineapple. But I get a sweet cake flavour, slightly nutty, almost like a crumble cake.

The taste of the tea reminds me of a cake my mom used to make called Lazey Daisy Cake (no idea why it was called that). It was essentially a white pound cake with coconut and brown sugar melted on top to make a glaze, then served with cream. Again I do not taste pineapple. But I taste sweet, heavy cake, creamy, some vanilla flavour. Maybe a hint of cherry towards the end of the sip.

Regardless of what the name of the tea is, it is a delicious dessert tea for sure!

Bio

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
