Wow, I made Indian food for dinner tonight, but it’s this tea that has filled my house with a delicious aroma. The sprinkles that were in the dry blend melted away in my cup, as did the freeze dried ice cream. This really does smell like birthday cake, and if tasting is so much about our sense of smell, it’s no wonder I feel like I am drinking a not-too-sweet version of birthday cake.
On my first steeping of this I went for a full 7 minutes to get the strongest flavor, and I’m drinking it with no additions to get the best sense of how cake-y it really is.
The only down side is that it leaves a sort of cloying feeling in my mouth. Shmeck. Shmeck.
I’m trying David’s teas for the first time this week, and I am already irritated that I live in stupid Houston, and we have no David’s stores here. This is probably my new favorite dessert tea.
