It smells like cake or chocolate. Well, maybe a little like chocolate cake. The flavour is more chocolate (and berries) than red velvet.

Red velvet is essentially a chocolate cake, so that’s not surprising! Though it’s supposed to have buttermilk, I’ve never found a red velvet tea that captured that aspect.

I want to try DT’s Red Velvet.

It’s better than some of chocolate rooibos blends I’ve tried.

drank Salted Caramel by DAVIDsTEA

It smells like salt, coconut, and a little caramel. I don’t taste much caramel flavour, mostly salty coconut. Good, but I was hoping for more caramel.

My main reason for buying a sample- it smells like peppermint bark. The flavour is sweet, and minty without being overpowering. It kinda tastes like my favourite mint candy canes. Would go well with chocolate.

At first, it does smell like cappuccino. The flavour is more like caramel than anything coffee. While I do like caramel rooibos, I was hoping that it was a little more like coffee.

The aroma reminds of rich hot cocoa. The flavour is sweet, and like milk chocolate. Very good with a little vanilla, and cinnamon.
