I’ve started noticing when you show all three Cake Teas to a customer, they hold onto one longer than the others. This one is not my favourite – it has an odd smell, but I do like the taste. It’s very smooth and rich.

Not a tea you need to sweeten.

I can’t get enough of this when it’s around.

It’s sweet, creamy and somehow NOT completely overpowering. It has a subtle smell and leaves your mouth feeling clean (somewhat more like a citrus tea).

I take mine with milk and honey. <3

Not naturally a fan of coconut, I gave this a shot after some other staff members recommended it. Delish!

It’s creamy and not too sweet, although has usual oily surface side-effect of coconut teas which can be a little strange.

Thank the sweet lord this is out and now I can talk about it.

It went from strange new tea to Top 10. Easily.

If you like Cinnamon Heart, you will like this (although you’ll get less of a kick from the caffeine, as this is a green), and if you like actual cinnamon hearts OR Hot Lips (for my American viewers, they’re like cinnamon hearts except gummi and lip-shaped) you will like this.

Spicy! Good for what ails you, if you need help with chest or sinus issues.

Add a bit of agave and it’s like eating a damn candy.

Along with Bear Trap, one of the best iced. Ever. Just. Ever.

All the fruits!

This is a nice naturally sweet tea to start the day with.

This was good with whiskey and honey to salve a chest cough and sore throat.

It’s a nice tea. I don’t mind the taste of hibiscus, and for a while was drinking straight hibiscus tea. It’s lovely iced, although I was a bit hamfisted with the agave. I couldn’t shake the cinnamon smell – each time I took a sip, it smelled intensely of cinnamon but didn’t taste spicy at all. It confused me.

I made a tumbler full of this as something to have on my bus ride into the US. I needed something without caffeine, and a couple friends had recommended it, so who was I to argue?

I’ll be upfront, I did work retail and inventory for one of the tea chains. I’ve been a lover of loose leaf for three or four years, but I’ve barely begun to learn all the nuances of the tea world.

A lover of citrus, fruit, and spice.
