The smell of his tea, both prior to and after steeping, is just like that other stuff I tried the other day… someone remind me… brain turn on… it smelled like pancake syrup, even though many people here mistakenly called it maple syrup. Yep, this is almost identical.

This tastes very similarly. To be frank, I swear it’s the same tea. It’s not, because this is a whole different bag that actually says, “Gingerbread.” So unless the gal at DAVID’s made a boo-boo… I can’t tell these apart.

EDIT: It was Birthday Cake. This must be the same tea, just mis-labelled. It’s just pancake syrup -turned tea. That’s all I taste.

If there are sprinkles, it’s Birthday Cake. :/

That’s the weird part. Zero sprinkles. Everything else is identical. They look, smell and taste exactly the same to me.

That’s really weird. Now I have to investigate these teas when I get home!

Bio

A few years ago, the obsession with tea started. The cupboard got bigger and bigger, more swaps occurred, group buys, secret rendezvous with local teapassionistas… and that’s how you end up with 500+ different kinds of tea in your home. At one time.

Now, it’s purge time. Time to gather what’s needed and let go of the rest. Almost all of the tea was given away, sold, or otherwise shared. A few relics still remain. It’s still a challenge to avoid the chipmunk-like hoarding of The Teas, yet, the lightness of being from having so little compels me more. And so, I’m happy to share (anytime!) and will occasionally desire small amounts of tea for swaps, just to try.

As for the day-to-day stuff, I’m focused almost entirely on Love, (yes, with a capital L), Spirit/Self, transformation, and work (dating columnist and consultant).

No-can-do: lavender, overly floral (French florals, or florals that are creamy rather than, well, floral work well!), sugar, Splenda, all grains.

Love: fruity, dessert, chai, spicy, all types of tea.
