drank Birthday Cake by DAVIDsTEA
127 tasting notes

Another yummy liquid dessert! No muss no fuss birthday cake. No need to worry about crumbs falling, frosting mustaches or sugar comas! Drink this instead :D I’m just not sure where to put the candle! Very sweet frosting and cake aroma. First sip seems all frosting but as it goes down I taste the vanilla cake. It has a good maple taste adding a little to the complexity of a fairly uncomplicated tea. Certainly not an everyday tea but an awesome speciality tea. One to keep in the cupboard for those special moments that need some cheering-up or celebrating. I couldn’t believe but it really did a nice job on the resteep.

Flavors: Cream, Vanilla

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 5 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

My son had some of this today at the David’s nearest us. He asked them to add sugar, apparently a mistake because it was then so sweet he could not finish it. LOL

Bio

Retired first grade teacher. Started drinking loose leaf tea about 5 years ago. It got me through those last five years of teaching :) I tend to like dessert type/herbal teas as a substitute for sweet treats. My husband thinks I’m nuts regarding the whole tea thing… but he bought me a Breville for Christmas, so what can I say. We’ve been married 42 years so I guess he is used to my obsessions.
My other interests are reading (books go well with tea :D) and beading.
I have been watching Doctor Who for 31 years. Waiting til August ‘14 might put me over the edge.However if I lived through the 14 year hiatus (1989-2003) with only reruns and 1 DW movie, I guess I’ll live until August. Luckily I have 312 episodes. :) In case you can’t tell my avatar is two daleks drinking tea!
Since I find others’ rating legends helpful, I added my own.

95-100 A once in a lifetime experience; the best there is; will keep this stocked until the cows come home

90-94 First rate; top notch; really terrific; will definitely buy more

80-89 Excellent; likely to become a favorite, will likely buy more

70-79 Very good; would enjoy again, might buy again if in the mood for this particular one or a better, similar version not available

60-69 Good; wouldn’t pass up if offered, but probably wouldn’t buy again unless craving this particular flavor

50-59 Okay or run of the mill

Below 50 So-so, iffy, would definitely pass
or ick. The lower the number, the closer to ick.
