drank Coffee Cake by DAVIDsTEA

Nope.

It smells good, all cake-like, but it doesn’t translate over to flavour at all. I just taste tea and oil, and adding brown sugar didn’t bring out the cake part at all.

Looks like this collection is pretty much a miss for me. The only one I sort of enjoyed was the Gingerbread Rooibos.

Boo. Booo! :(
Yeah – it’s totally oily!

OMGsrsly

I’m returning it and the Choconut Oolong tomorrow. :/

Cavocorax

I didn’t realize you could return opened tea!

OMGsrsly

Neither did I, but James suggested it so I might as well go complain (politely) and try.

Good luck! I think I spent about $19 on the new teas, and haven’t tried them all yet. The ones I have had are drinkable but not exceptional. I’ll sip themdown and move on. It’s too much hassle to return them, but I’ll be voting with my money by buying different blends.

OMGsrsly

It’ll be like $4 or something silly, because I used all te spiced fig in one cup, but for me it’s worth it. I’m frustrated I bought into the hype again and bought them all!

Bio

Black teas are my favourite, although I do drink the occasional green tea. I am exploring herbal and fruity teas for summer icing and winter evenings, and oolong and pu erh are new and exciting… although I do not like a tea that tastes mostly of seaweed.

No: Spearmint or peppermint, licorice root, gluten (cookie bits, wheat, rye, barley, I’m OK with oats)

After sending my first box to the USA, bubble-envelope swaps are where it’s at.

When I rate, my ratings are based on the little faces, and depend on what face I make when I sip the tea! :)

Also: A map of tea places in Vancouver. I’ve been to some of them, but not a lot. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!
