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

You know its a good tea when the only complaint is how dirty my steeper gets. Really, it gets dirty… Like a slimy residue on the steeper and mug. Anyway, the tea is super yummy. Warm and sweet. I can taste the chocolate and a sweet taste which almost taste like maple syrup. It is very good but I only recommend it if you like sweet tea. Not just sweet, ridiculosly very sweet tea.

I’ve never actually had Red Velvet Cake or any Cake-flavoured tea, so I wasn’t quite sure what to expect going in to this one.

The leaf has a very strong, sweet, cake smell. Once brewed, the smell is still there, though not quite as strong, and the colour is a dark red. It tastes absolutely delicious – rich, sweet, and absolutely fantastic with a bit of milk, but go easy on additional sugar or honey.

Definitely once I’ll be keeping around!

This tea was tasty but I got a strong sugar-induced headache from it, which I haven’t experienced from other loose teas with chocolate or sweet ingredients in them. I gave it away to a co-worker.

Very smooth, doesn’t really need any added sugar. Definitely taste a bit of maple syrup. Sweet without being cloying or having that headache-inducing fake cake flavour. Excellent balancing act and probably my favourite one from David’s of the six or so that I’ve tasted. Let it sit and the dust from the red sprinkles rises to the top and form a bit of a film…which was kind of weird but not a big deal.

Initial impressions- Let me just start off by saying that this is the BEST smelling tea EVER. It smells like a fresh slice of cake. Absolutely fantastic. That and it LOOKS festive, with the chocolate bits and sprinkles.
How I brewed it- 1.5 tsp of tea in one cup of tea at 94 degrees for ten minutes (steeped a bit long so we’ll see…), no sweetener.
First sips- Rich, chocolatey, and sweet this tea is amazing. A new favourite! Wonderful dessert tea!
Would be great brightened up with a touch of agave nectar.
Would be amazing as a tea latte.

I bought this tea a few days after it came out and after my first cup I thought that I would end up getting sick of it.. But I haven’t yet and I’ve gone through two tins! Some say the flavour is overwhelming maybe I don’t find it too overwhelming because I am such a huge fan of the dessert teas :)

I’ll admit… when this was previewed in the fall, I was hesitant because out of their cake teas, the only one I felt Davids really got right was ‘ice cream cake’. I thought that this would have that sickeningly sweet taste that the birthday cake had, or the weakness that the chocolate cake one had (because red velvet is chocolatey as well). I didn’t pick it up before Christmas, but I got a little bit recently. I am pleasantly suprised. There is no stevia in it, so there is no sickening, sweetness to it. The beetroot makes it steep up a wonderful red colour. The different chocolates work to compliment one another, and they are strong enough for me… which says a lot.. because I generally have to oversteep a lot of teas to get it to my preference. Unlike their other chocolate teas this one stands well, and will definitely become a go-to treat on my tea shelf.

I ordered this on a whim as part of my first David’s Tea order. I don’t care much for the dessert nor have I ever had a chocolate tea that I’ve liked, but I’ve heard such good things about David’s dessert teas that it sounded fun to try. And I LOVE IT! It really is satisfying in lieu of dessert. Subtly sweet & creamy and great flavor, I will probably order another bag and try some more of David’s dessert teas.

The scent of this tea is just DIVINE. It smells JUST like red velvet cake! (Even the cream cheese scent!) This is one of my favourites, and is best served as a dessert for me, especially with a touch of milk and sugar – it’s decadent and rich served that way. I have not yet tasted it cold, but hot is amazing.
