drank Chocolate Cake by DAVIDsTEA
1195 tasting notes

So there’s a reason I haven’t had this one in forever. It’s one of those where I had it once, wrote this average tasting note on it, and then tried it again, hated it, and didn’t say a thing.

So then I find it in the cupboard and I’m like, oh chocolate cake! I make it. I taste it. I absolutely despise it.

I mean, it tastes awesome. It tastes like chocolate ice cream cake. But I have a serious texture problem with teas that have so much flavoring oil in them. I can feel it and it grosses me out.

At least this means I have less work on deciding the last bunch of teas to add to a traveling tea box…and I can remove it from my spreadsheet!

Yeah, I have similar feelings on this. Bought a sample, tried it, LOVED IT. Bought 25g, had some more, did not like. Too much flavouring. Tried again, still do not like. Have not had any more since. For me, I think it was a batch issue, but there was definitely too much “extra crap” in this tea to really be enjoyable.

The same thing happens to me with their teas that have lots of flavouring in it. I never bothered trying this because I already had a feeling I’d have a similar experience.

I agree, this one is not part of David’s finest moments!
