drank Vicky's Sponge Cake by Bluebird Tea Co.
4830 tasting notes

So i wanted to try this as a cold brew since the warm cup i had was more raspberry than sponge cake. It turns out, the cake was hiding in the cold brew :) This is a creamy cup of delicious cake like tea. I am digging this. Now i just need to try and figure out how to get this taste with a hot brew!

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

These Bluebird teas keep popping up on my feed with great reviews – I may have to give in and order some myself!

Tealizzy

How long did you cold brew it for?

Sil

Some where around 10-14 hours…. I never time them. Just toss them I and drink them somewhere between 1 to 3 days later lol

Tealizzy

Nice!! I’m going to have to try this one cold!

Cavocorax

Ooh. I’ll have to ice it!

Hallieod

See, I knew it’d find a better home with you. :) We just gave up when we couldn’t discern any cake.

Sil

If i figure it out hot, i’ll let you know how i managed it lol but so far i’m with you on the hot = no cake :)

How do I open the packages? Do I have to cut the tops off? It’s been here for 45 mins & I haven’t smelt them yet, I’m having anxiety ahhhh lol

Cavocorax

Not sure why, but it does make me think of sponge cake when it’s hot – only because it gives in my mouth? IDK. It’s an imagined texture thing perhaps.

Sil

tattoed_Tea – pretty sure you just cut the top off. I got mine in a swap from hallieod but it looks like that’s what she did to me. IE. it’s no resealable, which would be my only negative comment….i prefer resealable packages! :)

Bio

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
