drank Birthday Cake by DAVIDsTEA
145 tasting notes

Oh my gaahhhh I finally got the cake teas! I was soooo excited for this one. My birthday is even in a few days, so I was happy that it was the April tea!
I made a few of my friends smell the dry leaves and guess what it was. They said caramel, butterscotch, and gingerbread but no one guessed cake. But when I made my other friend smell the steeped tea he said “it smells like birthday cake”!! How did he know?!
I love the smell of the leaves and the tea. The rooibos is very present, in the smell and the taste. And at the same time it’s perfectly sweet and cake-y. It reminds me of Oh Canada, which is one of my favorite rooiboses (rooiboses?).
This tea makes me think back to when I first started getting into tea. The first thing I bought for myself from Davids was the “sweet indulgence” sampler and I feel like this is exactly the kind of tea I was looking for. I will always have a major sweet tooth.
In conclusion, this tea is amazing.

University student and relatively new tea convert. It all started several months ago when my mom bought me a tin of The Glow from David’s. Now I want to try ALL THE TEAS.

If you know of any excellent tea places around downtown Toronto, let me know! I’ve found a few but am always looking for more.
