So, one of the few things that I knew I wanted to do in Vegas was do a Vegas style buffet and after some research were decided on the buffet at the Bacchanal in Caeser’s Palace. We picked this one for two reasons; they have one of the best reviewed dessert bars, and they’re really well known for having lots of vegetarian/vegan options.

We ate there for literally three hours and by the end I felt like I was 100% going to explode if I ate anything else. It may have been the most gluttonous thing that I have ever done. If this was a food blog I would run down the whole list of things that I ate – but it’s not, though I did post A LOT of food porn over on my Instagram both in story and post form. You can catch some of it here:

I made sure to try everything they had to offer that was tea infused though, so that’s what I’m going to run through really quickly here:

Matcha Cream Cake

So the tea in this was in the icing, which was matcha infused. You could definitely taste the matcha really clearly; however the cake itself was SUPER sweet/rich and after already eating so much other food I simply found it to be too much for myself. However, very moist and great consistency to the icing.

Thai Iced Tea “Boba Float”

This was served at the dessert bar; and it wasn’t something you could dish yourself. You had to specially ask someone to make one for you. However, I couldn’t resist. I feel like I actually might have liked it better without the ice cream (which was just vanilla) but it was also good with. Very sweet tasting, but that is typical for Thai Iced tea so no surprizes there. It had some malt to it, but also this sort of caramelized citrus fruit type of taste, and obvious creaminess from the icecream melting on top. The boba were fine; though did clump together a little creating one “super boba” at the end.

Green Tea Shaved Ice

Another one that required assistance; you had to get the bowl of “shaved ice” shaved for you – but then after that there was a giant topping bar where you could customize the shaved iced all on your own. There were five different “sauces” you could put on top, and green tea was one of them. It appeared to be some sort of cream based green tea syrup just judging on the colouration and it definitely did taste creamy as well – like the green tea Haagen Dazs I’ve had before. I also added passionfruit popping boba to mine as well, which was delicious. This was probably my favourite of the three different tea related things…


Everything sounds so good. Bookmarked for a future Vegas visit!

Hello! My name is Kelly, though many people in the tea community call me Ros or Roswell.

I am a mid-twenties tea addict, blogger, and all around nerd. I grew up in the Prairies, but a few years ago I relocated to Quebec to pursue a career with DAVIDsTEA in the tea industry! I’m still working on getting my French language skills down…

My first introduction to tea, in any form outside of instant and bottled iced tea, was about seven years ago when I happened to stumble upon DAVIDsTEA while looking for a birthday present for a friend! I tried their Birthday Cake rooibos blend, and I’ve been hooked on tea ever since! In those seven years; I was introduced to the online tea community, expanded my interest in flavoured teas to include a deep love and appreciation for straight teas and traditional brewing methods, got a tea themed tattoo, started reviewing teas, amassed a sizable tea and teaware collection, became a TAC certified Tea Sommelier, & even came full circle by beginning a career in the tea industry with DAVIDsTEA!

I consider myself a Jack of all Teas, and strive to have a knowledge and appreciation of all tea types, formats, and styles of drinking. I don’t like to feel boxed in to just being a “flavoured tea” or “straight tea” drinker – my expectations may vary depending on the type of tea or how it’s been processed/prepared but if it’s good tea, it’s good tea no matter how it’s been made!

You name it, I probably drink it- and I’ll absolutely try anything at least once.

My default method of preparation is hot, Western style, and straight – but I’m not opposed to additions if I’m in the right mood. If I ever add something to a tea or use a different method of preparation I will ALWAYS call it out in the tasting note though.

I like to listen to music when drinking tea, especially when I’m brewing a large pot at a time or steeping Gongfu. Often I curate very intentional tea and music pairings, and sometimes I share them here in my tasting reviews. Music is something that I find can deeply affect the experience of having tea.

I’m also one half of the “tea and fandom” podcast GeekSteep where, weekly, we discuss newly explored fandoms over tea as well as try to figure out the perfect tea to pair with each fandom. You can find us on Spotify and Apple & Google podcasts.

Favourite flavour notes/ingredients: Pear, lychee, cranberry, cream, melon, pineapple, malt, roasty, petrichor, sweet potato, heady florals like rose, hazelnut or walnut, sesame, honey (in moderation), and very woody shou.

Least favourite flavour notes/ingredients:
Lemongrass, ginger, strongly spiced profiles (and most Chai in general), mushrooms, seaweed, chamomile, stevia, saltiness or anything that reminds me too much of meat that isn’t supposed to taste like meat…

Currently exploring/obsessed with: Sheng from Yiwu, Yancha (Qilan in particular), anything with a strong sweet potato note. Also, I need to try ALL the root beer teas! Searching for a really good caramel flavoured blend, ideally with a black tea base.

Please contact me at the instagram account listed below if you would like me to review your teas.

Currently I’m employed in the tea department of the DAVIDsTEA head office. While I’m still sharing my own personal thoughts on new & existing DAVIDsTEA blends, I am no longer numerically rating them due to the obvious conflict of interest. Any comments expressed are a reflection of my own thoughts and opinions, and do not reflect the thoughts and opinions of the company. Any DAVIDsTEA blends you currently see with a numeric score were reviewed prior to my being hired there and have not been adjusted since becoming a DAVIDsTEA employee.
