drank Coffee Cake by DAVIDsTEA
416 tasting notes

Yeah…no. Not happening. It smelled very similar to birthday cake, which I’d initially fallen in love with, only to run the other way because of the rooibos. but to perhaps have a version of birthday cake without the rooibos sounded a bit enticing. anyway, it’s so hard for me to separate the two in my head.

anyway, this doesn’t taste even reminiscently of coffee cake. and it does have that artificial aftertaste, even for me. It wasn’t, like, insulting to drink or anything like that; it actually felt good on my slightly irritated throat (I was singing rather obnoxiously at the top of my lungs earlier as a way to de-stress), but I’m definitely not going to restock. I see i’m in good company, though.

I thought red velvet cake was like birthday cake sans Rooibos. This one here I was going to try but it is not well liked so I’m going to pass for sure!

Bio

Well, it’s been slightly over six months since I’ve joined steepster, and I can’t say enough wonderful things about this community. Like many of you, I began my foray into the world of loose-leaf tea by discovering David’s Tea, and although I’ve ventured out and have discovered many other companies that I’m extremely fond of, there are still many of David’s teas that I hold close to my heart and I will always appreciate it as a starting point for my journey.

As for my preferences, I tend to prefer bold black tea, flavoured and unflavoured alike, and I almost always take my blacks with cream and sugar. This isn’t to say that I don’t enjoy a good, flavoured white though, and I’m slowly making my way through the incredibly confusing world of oolongs and greens. I am also not a fan of rooibos, although I am starting to suspect green rooibos may be ok, but you know how it is: when you’ve decided you detest a certain ingredient, you’ll notice it everywhere—perhaps even where it doesn’t exist!

Things other than tea: I’m engaged to be married to my best friend, and feel like the richest woman on the planet because of it. I am also a veracious reader, and I also happen to have an obsession with fragrances, and have amassed quite a collection, although it pales in comparison to some collections out there! As a result of this obsession, I also follow several fragrance blogs, and am always up for a chat about scent. I’m also almost completely blind, and this does indeed mean that I come complete with a guide dog, who unlike me, hales from the sunny California campus of Guide dogs for the Blind. I think I’ve rambled on long enough, but if there’s anything you’d like to know or if you just feel like chatting to someone, please don’t hesitate to send me a message.
