drank Coffee Cake by DAVIDsTEA
1780 tasting notes

BAM! I was able to retrieve my DAVIDsTEA parcel without having to go to the bloody remote shipping centre. Bonus points for semi-freaking out the delivery guy because I was in the lobby when he came to the front door, saw the teal box, walked through the secure doors, and asked if it was for me. Ha! The best part? I only ended up waiting for like 45 minutes, just entertaining myself with Candy Crush on my iPad. Awesome timing. He was like, “How did you know when I would come?” to which I replied, “I’m psychic.”

But seriously, that’s been the third time in a row when I’ve managed to catch the courier dude, and all three times without having to wait for more than 90 minutes, and all three times from different companies too (Purolator, Canpar, and UPS).

However, let’s hope my luck hasn’t run out because now I have a Fedex parcel that is scheduled to land tomorrow. My gut is telling me, based on previous experience, that I’ll have to go downstairs and wait quite a bit earlier for them, though. It’s too damn bad the apartment buzzer hasn’t been hooked up. What if I don’t get out of bed early enough or have to wait in the lobby for like four hours?

Anyway, so this was a sample in my parcel. I got this as a complimentary birthday tea from DAVIDs a few years ago, but semi-forgot about the experience. Like back then, I swear this smells like Red Velvet Cake? Why do so many smell like that? That thing keeps haunting me. It just won’t die.

Brewed up with milk, yep, like a more subdued Red Velvet Cake. The lack of sprinkles means it’s not as sweet, but I’m going to go ahead and guess that what I’m tasting is the universal cake note that DAVIDsTEA (and TeaTaxi) insists is cake. But it’s not cake, folks. It’s just sugar-dusted chemicals. There is supposed to be cherry in this and I didn’t get any of that, either. Pass.

I am so disappointed that this seems to be the general consensus on this one because I’m getting it as a sample in an upcoming order and I was actually looking forward to this one.

I’m super excited for this tea. I tried my sample and I enjoyed it. Everyone has different tastes, and I hate red velvet cake – but like this. So… Who knows? @Fay

Fjellrev

That’s right, taste is very subjective. Surely they bring it back because there are enough people who like it. Hope you won’t be disappointed once you try it, Fay!

Tamarindel

I just got this one too and it’s pretty underwhelming

Evol Ving Ness

What a shame! I think this is the only new one that seemed of interest. Bah!
