I had tried this tea very early in my intro to the world of tea…..which is recent, I only started dring loose tea in early 2013….,I didn’t love this tea, but only tried a cup or two…..I was in Davids recently, and thought I should give it another try……I love black, flavoured sweet tea……this should be right up my alley, right?
Well, the smell is wonderful….it is cakey, buttercream…..a scent I love for candles btw……but the tea……it is just too sweet for me……and I get an oily sort of mouth feel…..it is ok, overall, but it does taste to me like drinking a hot, runny cake batter……too hard for me to drink that, at least other than the occasional cup, when I really want something sweet…..
As I let my unfinished half cup sit, the whole room smells like I lit a buttercream candle…..maybe I won’t use this one as tea, but as room scenter….wouldn’t rebuy this one……

Bio

Vancouver born, and love the city. Fairly new to tea, I found Davids Tea in early 2013 and that is where everything started. So far, my favourites are flavoured black teas, I am on a serious hunt for the perfect black caramel. I also like fruit herbals and tisanes. So far, I have mixed and limited experience with white tea and oolongs – the jury is still out. I don’t like green tea; maybe that will change.

I have tried most of the Vancouver area shops, David’s, Murchies, Granville Island Tea, UTM, and more. Just starting to branch out and order on-line. My initial experiences with Harney&Sons have been great, I drink their raspberry herbal iced tea all the time. I realize I waited too long to try out Butiki teas and have loved every single one of their teas I have tried, especially the black tea blends. I wish they were sticking around – I anticipate trying to build a serious stash of their teas before they close up shop forever.

I work as a research nurse, with cancer patients. Sometimes stressful but rewarding work and tea is a nice break for me. I love my cat ( that’s Lily) shopping, candles, lush baths, reading, cooking, home reno stuff and going for a relaxing massage. I like checking out new tea shops and learning more about tea. I try to go to the gym and swim when not working or drinking tea.
