From DAVIDsTEA

Just dessert

What’s not to love about a red velvet cake? It’s chocolaty, it’s rich, and it’s bright red. We’re the first to admit it’s a pretty flashy dessert. If other cakes are birds of a feather, the red velvet is the peacock – which is exactly why we love it so much. And this sweet, lightly creamy black tea blend perfectly captures our favourite dessert. With semi-sweet and white chocolate chips, beetroot powder and little red sprinkles, it’s rich, delicious and a whole lot of fun.

Ingredients: Black tea, semi-sweet chocolate bits, white chocolate bits, beetroot powder, sprinkles, natural and artificial flavouring*.

Allergens: Soy and dairy

I remember this being one of my most favourite teas. Now the more I drink it, like I am now, the more the flavour just really to be put bluntly – sucks. I still have a full tin of this and I really hope my next cup won’t disappoint me as much as it is right now.

I’ve never been so disappointed about a tea before… I really don’t know what happened. Each cup I make, just becomes worse and worse. I still have a full tin of it too.

I didnt really like this one the first time I tried it, I found that it had an after taste but after a while it seemed to grow on me. The smell is delicious…definetely a dessert tea!

Love this. So much that after I received my sample from darby (thank you!) I ran to DT and got my own bag. It’s delicious! Brings happy feelings similar to a warmed up chocolatey dessert. I don’t find this to be overly sweet or overly chocolatey. It’s delicious on a winter’s night!

I brought this out to keep awake and when the smell hit me I felt like I was in heaven. I wanted to devour this tea! I did not care! Even if I did not enjoy it! Sadly, that feeling faded.

After waiting for it to steep, my initial taste warranted nothing. I had no taste of sugar or cake or any type of dessert. It tasted like, well, hot water. Only after I added a dreaded cube of sugar – as honey was not on hand – did I finally taste a hint of sweetness. I was disheartened. I was excited to have a tasty tea that could keep me up but the lack of flavours makes this miss the cut.

It is not bad, not by the least but I wanted more and this did not deliver.

I love this tea. Though it doesn’t taste exactly like its name, it is fantastic.

This isn’t bad. It’s kinda reminiscent of red velvet cake. It probably doesn’t help when there are actual red velvet cupcakes in the house…

For some reason I remember this tea being kinda “meh” but as I’m drinking it now, I think I was mistaken. It is a lot smoother and creamier than I thought it was. It tastes like a black tea with a strong aroma and flavour of creamy caramel. I don’t taste any bitterness in the black tea. You don’t need to add milk or sugar because of the chocolate chips. The second cup is not quite as nice because the chocolate has already melted, however it is still very tasty zero calorie dessert.

I really wanted to love this tea but I didn’t. I had it plain so one day I decided to try again and got a sweetened tea latte at DavidsTea with Red Velvet Cake and it was much better but still just ok for me.

This is not a bad tea. It doesn’t taste very much like actual red velvet cake, but it’s a pleasant black tea to drink on a daily basis. From the aroma alone, I am reminded of Birthday Cake tea. The description is a “sweet, lightly creamy black tea blend”, and I fully agree. The beetroot powder colours the tea red, and is a bit of a pain to wash out of my infuser and cup afterwards, but I have no regrets.

Red velvet cake tea is a super tasty treat for after supper. A guilt free slice of cake in a cup is what it is. It’s the kind of tea that is so yummy, you want to sip it slowly and savor every sip. I definitely recommend it to anyone who enjoys a great desert tea.
