Note #400!

So, red velvet cake is basically just dyed chocolate cake, right? I mean that’s what I’ve always assumed – never got anything really super special about it. With this tea, I get a cake note but more of a caramel taste than actual chocolate. Although if I’m not thinking too hard about it that caramel will sometimes transform into a chocolate flavor -especially with milk. I definitely don’t get icing, though. Just the cake part. But honestly, I’m someone who likes my cake and icing separate so I’m okay with that.

I have a soft spot for cake tea of all kinds, it seems, so I’ll likely keep this one around for awhile!

Red Velvet is also made with buttermilk, so it’s a bit tangier than regular chocolate cake. not sure if you can translate that to tea, though.

Bio

I have come to the point (as of October 2014) where quality in tea is more important than quantity. Especially because I’m a seasonal tea drinker where hot tea is concerned, and a SLOW one to boot. I generally don’t resteep only because I’d be here all day if I did, though I do break out a gaiwan from time to time.

I adore French teas in practically every iteration, Japanese Sencha (specifically from the Uji region, as they offer the most seaweed flavor), and Dan Cong oolongs. I am trying to focus on plain teas and so companies like Verdant, Upton, and Butiki are on my favorites list.

When it comes to tea, I feel like the 10th Doctor says it best:

“Tea! That’s all I needed! Good cup of tea! Super-heated infusion of free-radicals and tannin, just the thing for healing the synapses. "
