drank Chocolate Cake by DAVIDsTEA
1351 tasting notes

Wow. I’ve been very impressed by all three cupcake teas! The chocolately tastiness of this one cannot be denied. My wife and I shared a pot last night and to my shock, she actually sweetened the pot with a touch of sugar! Usually she drinks her teas black and I sweeten mine. But she was hoping the sugar would add a little depth to the flavor and boy did it! It tasted like chocolate cake to me, which is awesome…except for the part where I don’t like chocolate cake. But it is what it claims to be and that makes it awesome in my book. Definitely keeping some around for when those killer chocolate cravings hit.

The beau wasn’t swayed by the smell of chocolate cake so we only bought a bit of Ice Cream Cake to sample. Maybe I’ll have to head back! : )

Hmm, does Davids Tea have new flavors out? looks at tea stash I’ll have to keep this in mind for when my stash starts to dwindle. My secret sophomore made sure I would have plenty of Earl Grey.

Secret sophomore???

It is a tradition we do at school. Every senior gets assigned a sophomore that leaves them little gifts. The seniors leave little gifts back for holidays like halloween, thanksgiving, and christmas. Then at the end of the year we do a big lunchtime reveal. It’s really fun and since I’m a senior this year, I had a sophomore.

Awww, that sounds fun! I’d never heard of it before so was wondering if autocorrect had changed ‘Santa’ into ‘Sophomore’ or something like that!

Ah, tea. My love for you is ever changing. At my last update, I was all about the rooibos and now I hardly drink it. I only occasionally had an oolong and now I have one just about every day. I’ve learned the art of resteeping and coldbrewing and kombucha. I have a lovely little tea pet named…well, I haven’t decided on a name for him yet. I also have four live pets, a tabby cat named Rosabella Francis (Bella for short), a ginger cat named Orange Julius Pekoe (Pekoe), a white and grey cat named Earl Jean Grey (Earlie), and a red foot tortoise named Da Hong Pao (Pao). So if you see me referring to my girls, I don’t have kids, just animals.

As for tea, I love oolongs, herbals, and black tea. Since I am no longer working, I no longer feel the constant need for a mate energy boost, though I do still reach for it from time to time. I also drink less matcha, though I do throw a spoonful or two in when I’m making smoothies. Most of my tea I drink coldbrewed, and since I discovered coldbrewed rooibos was giving me headaches, I’m drinking less and less of it. Straight pu-erh is not a thing I enjoy, but there are a few flavored blends I like. Greens are still too finicky for me to bother with hot, but they make great cold brews.

I am by no means a tea purist. I greatly enjoy flavored teas and I put sugar in all of my teas. It’s just how I do.

I think I’m going to name my tea pet Mr. Turtle. Even though he’s a tortoise.
