Ok, I’m just going to come to terms with the fact that I love the idea of cake tea, but don’t like cake tea itself at all. This reminded me a lot of David’s Tea Birthday Cake, with a bit of added coconut and better altogether because the base is black tea. Chocolate, vanilla, coconut, odd “cake” flavour, maybe a bit of butter…It is overly sweet, and has that typical pungent sort of smoky sweetness that seems to dominate all these cake teas. That odd taste I can’t quite pin down is what I don’t like. It tastes like batter, but not delicious home-made batter. Oh no. Sickeningly sweet and artificial boxed cake mix. What is that about? Seriously. Stop it.

I won’t give it a bad rating, it is not BAD. Not the tea’s fault that I can’t work out my issues with cake flavouring.
Disclaimer: I actually enjoy cake from a box once in a while, for that awesome trip down memory lane: kid’s birthday parties in my childhood, or bake sales at school, when all the mothers just brought that to pass off as their own and all the kids gobbled it down as fast as they could because SUGAR. I have nothing against cake mix, but I find the combination of tea and that flavour god awful.

Haha I am the exact opposite! I am not a big fan of cake but I love cake teas. :P Bummer you didn’t like it though, hope you didn’t buy tons! XD

I’ve been disappointed by cake teas so far as well. I still want to try Butiki’s version though. :D

I actually bought Butiki’s version as one last try before I give up, and it is on it’s way :P . I know it will be great. Stacy knows her teas, and has good taste. I have nothing but faith in her. Hear that Stacy? I’m counting on you to restore my faith! lol

Bio

I was introduced to the world of tea after trying to find a way to stop binging on sugar at night (I have a bit of insomnia). Then I had the brilliant idea of going to David’s Tea to get some sweet dessert-y teas to replace all the crap I was eating, whilst still satisfying my sweet tooth.

And then I tried an Oolong and I was done for.

So this is me, exploring the world of tea with excitement, spending way too much money on it, drinking impressive amounts of it, and although I do love flavoured teas, I am now beginning to try high quality straight teas, and trying to learn as much as I can. I have rarely been so passionate about something so quickly.

My boyfriend thinks I am crazy with all my teas. I actually hide some from him when I get deliveries, just so he won’t panic haha. When he does say something, I just reply that to me, tasting tea is like tasting wine, and it brings me the same kind of joy as eating chocolate or eating fine food. Only better.

Flavours I Like: Most fruits, Cinnamon, Licorice, Cloves, Pepper, Caramel, Vanilla, Chocolate, Cardamom, Floral Teas, Honey, Coffee, Pastry/Bread, Smoky, Woody

Flavours I dislike: strong vegetal tastes (a little is ok), Rooibos, Mate, Lemon, Raspberry (for the most part), Orange, Lavender, Eucalyptus, Overpowering Mint,

Other than that, un-related to tea, I love make-up artistry, parrots and birds (in real life, not objects lol), crime and trial stories, flowers, baking, wine, reading, collecting teapots and mugs and stand-up comedy.

I love Dexter, Orange is the New Black, Hannibal, all reality food and cooking series…

As I’m re-reading this I can’t help but to notice how I love extra dark things and extra happy things with no real middle. Hm. xD “I like staying up to date on murder trials…and drinking tea while bird watching!” I’m NOT weird, I swear. :)
