I put this in my basket with my first order with Butiki Tea. I’ve been looking forward to this, mainly because I was really intrigued that there was a supposedly cake-tasting herbal tea.
The tea itself is very pretty to look at. Brewed, the color is a pale amber. The flavor is subtle. It tastes very herby and not cake-like at all until I added a smidge of sugar. That helped bring out some of the flavoring. I’m definitely getting sweet vanilla, but it’s less reminiscent of cake and instead brings to mind the overly sweet frosting found on sheet cakes bought at the grocery store. There is an undertone that could be considered cakey, I suppose, but it’s hidden and still fairly herby.
I do like this tea, but not sure I like it enough to purchase again.
