drank Chocolate Cake by DAVIDsTEA
212 tasting notes

Another sample from Krystaleyn. Thank you! I was really excited to try this one. Any thing that is chocolate is generally good in my book. It has met my expectations with a bit of a surprise. I was really wondering how they were going to make it taste like cake.

That being said, I do get chocolate cake goodness from this one. It’s creamy too so maybe chocolate cake with whipped cream. Any who I’m pretty impressed. I should keep this one around for craving curbing.

Yep, I thought it would be capable of satisfying a craving. Not something I’d drink regularly though (so I need to make sure I have about 25g before it leaves the tea wall at my DT location!)

Missy

You know I totally agree on not drinking it all the time. Very odd, I think its great but it will be better when I’m craving chocolate.

Missy

Oh! Why is it leaving the wall there!?

Kittenna

It’s becoming an ‘online exclusive’. They’re doing that with many new teas, it seems. Of course, once things are online you have to buy in 50g increments, which is annoying.

Missy

Ahh yeah they can make more money that way I guess.

DaisyChubb

Well they also can’t have every tea on the wall haha – they just picked the most popular ones to stick around on the wall I think.

Missy

Very good point there! I do wonder why you have to buy in larger amounts on online vs in store though.

DaisyChubb

Yeah you’re definitely right about making more money too! At least we swap with each other so we can taste something first! We’re totally beating the system ;)

Missy

lol yes!!!

Kittenna

I’m also glad they’re keeping the teas alive as online exclusives instead outright discontinuing them – sure you have to buy a larger quantity when it’s online, but at least if you’ve tasted it prior it’s not so much of a gamble!

I’ve discovered I really like the spicy, nutty teas. Some fruity teas are pretty good but they are hit and miss for me. Flower teas really aren’t my thing right now. Seems like my preferences are changing so this may be different in the future.

Tea Rating system:

90 – 100: This is a tea I will always have on hand at work, and at home. I will leave it on altars as offerings of perfection.

80 – 89: This, or one of it’s close cousins, will likely be in my cabinet at home. When this tea runs out, I will buy more. I’ll always wonder if there is something better, but be too afraid to look to stray from home to find it.

70 – 79: Definitely good, but not a clear winner. I enjoy it, I’ll finish it, but I probably won’t buy it again until I’ve exhausted all other versions of this product from any reputable retailer. Though, it may enjoy a resurrection for custom blending.

60 – 69: This tea is okay, but definitely not something I’m going to brew again. I’m going to give what I have left away.

30 – 59: I didn’t finish drinking this tea. I actually poured it out, and went for something else. I’ll still give this tea away, but I’ll do it with a warning and a plead for forgiveness.

0 – 29: This tea is riding securely towards an iceberg at the helm of the failboat. I’ve taken this out of my tea tin, and laid it on a napkin as potpurri. I do not consider it fit for human consumption.

Yes, I did copy this from Dylan. It’s okay we share every thing any ways.
