drank Chocolate Cake by DAVIDsTEA
1308 tasting notes

So I went into the store today hoping that Chocolate Cake would be on sample… but twas not to be! bah! the trauma :/
Nevermind, when I got to talking with the lovely DT Staff (who I won’t call out here, but yer awesome you know that right?!) and mentioned my awful tea experience she brewed a cup for me on the house!! wow! =D
Anyhow, the tea itself is not what I expected. It’s chocolatey, and I do get a chocolate cakiness, however there seems to be a dusty flavour sitting on top of it. I’m not quite sure what to think. It’s as if the tea is made up mostly of artificial ingredients.
I remember drinking out of Nestle chocolate straws a few years back, and never finished the package because it tasted so fake. That’s what this tea reminds me of.
Satisfying, and yet… disturbing all at once.
On another note, this is my 500th review! I can’t believe it’s been so long. Funny how time flies when you’re having fun!!! thanks to all my Steepster friends who made me feel so welcome here from the get-go :)

Bio

Let’s see… I’m a tea and workout fanatic, I work in HR, and most of my friends consider me to be an egg. White on the outside, Asian on the inside :)
-from philosophy to food, I love it all
Otherwise, what you see is what you get! I can be very straightforward and yet shy.

Also, I’ve started taking tea sommelier classes and it is an absolute blast! Well, so far I’ve only finished the first out of eight courses, but I am really looking forward to the next one.

Anyhow, if your curious as to how I rate things, this is how I work…

0-25
Like eating dirt, or some other unsanitary indelicacy that mentioning in my profile here would likely get me banned.
I don’t think I’ve found cause to banish a tea to the wasteland yet though so who knows what it’d inspire ;P

25-50
You know that expression “Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater”? I imagine drinking that water would be terrible enough to warrant this rating!
I’d never make my enemy drink this, but perhaps I’d throw it at them. Good thing I don’t have any enemies!

50-70
This is “tea”?? I tried finishing the cup… but my body rejected it. There may be others who enjoy this tea, but it’s beyond me!

70-80
I tried liking it, and I can almost get there! I certainly don’t hate it, but something is holding me back. Allergies? Men in white suits? who knows… certainly not me!

80-90
Lovely tea! Not my all time fave but close. I likely wouldn’t repurchase, but may decide to based on many factors: price, accessibility, whether it fills a “tea gap”, medicinal applications, and how often I crave it.
Every once in awhile I find the sweet spot that bumps these up to 90+. Those are the days I need to buy a lotto ticket!

90-95
Sweet Camellia! this is realllly good tea! Don’t talk to me until I’ve finished my cup…

95-100
Tea of the gods. I would do anything to get my hands on more of this liquid gold!
