This tea is generally a comforting cuppa for me. As long as its steeped correctly. I’m not sure whether it has that hot cocoa taste to it, but it might have a hint of it. This is one blend that has coconut, but I surprisingly love. The coconut doesn’t stand out, it’s more of that white/black tea blend and I’m guessing the Roman chamomile in it. All together makes for a lovely tea.
Flavors: Cocoa, Coconut
Happy Valentine Day everyone!! I may be single but I have awesome friends so I’m now the proud owner of two new mugs from DAVIDs and the heart shaped tin of this tea. Luckily this was my preferred of the Valentine’s Day collection which I reviewed here: http://sororiteasisters.com/2017/02/14/the-2017-valentines-day-collection-from-davids-tea/
I tried a sample at my local DT and enjoyed it so much that I bought some right away. I haven’t been thrilled with many of their new flavoured teas, but this is an exception. For one the base is much more robust than what they usually use for their blends and I can actually add milk to it without it turning the colour and strength of dirty dishwater. The dry tea smells quite sweet and chocolatey but it’s the rose flavour that dominates, it’s a nice rose though, and it manages to avoid being too perfumy – I think the stronger base contributes to that. The white chocolate is more of an after-thought, coming in at the end of each sip. This was a lovely Valentines Day tea, I hope they bring it back next year.
What an interesting day. I interviewed earlier today for a potential promotion, and I think it went well, plus they seemed to really like me, but who knows what’ll happen. I also just bought concert tickets. My favourite band, Katatonia, is coming to town! Plus my Amoda order arrived today but I still need to add everything to my cupboard.
Now I’m dead tired and still trying to fight off this sickness. I have a headache and mild fever, still, after over a week, plus my neck still hurts from when I fainted and fell last month. So I’m being ultra lazy and useless just bumming around.
But tea! This smells like bee pollen at the farmer’s market, 100%. I was anticipating being smacked in the face with chamomile, but surprises are surprising. The honey really comes through in the flavour and complaints the chamomile wonderfully. You know what? I like this more today than when I had it for the first time the other week. It’s soothing and so smooth for chamomile, which can sometimes be a bit much, especially on its own. I’m not quite sure if I would buy more, but it’s a dope sidekick, at least when you’re sick.
Thanks so much for this one a WHILE ago Julie Jones! Just writing a tasting note now. In theory, this tea should be my thing! But among the supposedly awesome ingredients, I’m really only tasting a flavor that seems like either splenda or licorice and those are the two things I wish would disappear from this blend. It’s supposed to have chocolate, hazelnut and caramel flavors! Along with black tea and oolong! But no, only the flavors that aren’t for me. To be fair, this blend isn’t fresh but there is only one serving left until a….sipdown.
Steep #1 // 1 1/2 teaspoons for a full mug// 10 minutes after boiling // 3 minute steep
Steep #2 // just boiled // 4-5 minute steep
Thank you VariaTEA for passing this along! I still find it weird that there’s a different version of Birthday Cake specific to Americans – is the Canadian version not good enough? It doesn’t hurt to try it though; as an employee I should know as much as possible about the different kinds of teas we sell.
Honestly though? When I brewed this one up I really couldn’t taste and real discernible difference between it and the Canadian version. It was still smooth, and very much like a creamy vanilla cupcake. If anything, I appreciate that this version has slightly less sprinkles because they don’t do much other than help the aesthetic of the tea leaf.
Friendly reminder that I do not numerically rate DAVIDsTEA blends as I’m currently employed there and it would be an obvious conflict of interest. Any blends you see with numerical ratings were rated prior to my employment there. These reviews are a reflection of my personal thoughts regarding the teas, and not the company’s.
This is the tea I’ve been waiting for! Last year I realized I love florals. I have some excellent floral teas in my collection, but none that are rose flavoured – or at least to my liking. But O-M-G, void filled!
This has the perfect rosey flavour to it. Absolutely perfect. It’s not too strong or too weak. It’s just a soft rose flavour that mixes well with the black tea. The white chocolate does not stick out to me. It just adds a pleasant sweet creaminess to it. I always drink my tea black, so it makes this one feel indulgent.
Flavors: Cream, Rose
