drank Chocolate Cake by DAVIDsTEA
89 tasting notes

So Azzrian gave me this unopened. I hope she got some…

I think I expect a bit too much from my chocolate/dessert flavored teas. :/

Smell: Dry, in the bag. This smelled….cakey, chocolately (sort-of) and a weird, artificial something. Sugary maybe, but like, overly so. It wasn’t bad, I enjoyed the scent, but it had something weird to it. Steeping I smelled cocoa.

Taste: Hmm. See, I really want to be like WOW! But…no. Sorry. Now, it wasn’t horrible but…ah, just read on.

So this tea wasn’t a major chocolate anything. I could taste chocolate, and the candy bits (maybe that was the weird sugary flavor/scent?) and this was after two spoonfuls of regular white sugar (trying to conserve the raw sugar, it’s expensive) and letting it cool. It just tasted way too sweet to me, and it wasn’t a chocolate sweet. It was just sweet, sweet. And it was yummy enough to enjoy, I guess, but I think I either did something wrong or just expect too much of something labeled “chocolate cake.” But I mean, shouldn’t it taste like that if that’s what it says? I’m going to try again. And add some chocolate chips. Oh, cream made it good, more cakey to me. Anybody else had success with this tea after some experimenting? I need some tips!

Are you sure it was unopened? Humm maybe. I got two samples of this from two different people (I think) and passed one on to you. Maybe it was brand new. Cool (hoping this posts) Not only is steepster running slow but I am also having connection issues – no one out to check on it till SATURDAY so not only am I disconnected a lot from you all but I can’t work either BAH
