This tea is very similar to Oh Canada!, but sorry I like that one better! This one does not have that much flavor until you add sugar. It tastes a little to sweet and sugary for me, but is still a good dessert tea. I plan on finishing the bag I have at home, but will probably order a cup from the store before I repurchase more loose tea.

The wonderful Virginia sent this to me despite the fact that we both have an aversion to rooibos. I trust her so it was worth a try :-). I actually liked this a shocking amount considering it was rooibos. The birthday cake icing taste is spot on. The only thing that keeps this from being insanely good is the rooibos taste underneath. So woodsy :-/. It kind of tastes like someone ran out of flour while baking a birthday cake and made up the difference with sawdust.

Flavors: Butter, Cream, Rooibos, Vanilla

That’s what I dislike about rooibos too. I wish I could get past the mulch taste.


Yum! Cake and rooibos sounds like my cuppa! I couldn’t help but laugh at your description of the cake, though. I pictured some little, old grandma in the middle of the woods not wanting to hike all the way to the store and settling for sawdust instead:P


This does sound like my cuppa as well. I enjoy a good dessert rooibos in the evening. I don’t have nearly enough of them. I also agree about the image of some gramma making a cake and after searching frantically for more flour just giving up and adding whatever she could find. giggle



That last sentence killed me. That’s a spot on description xD


Haha that’s the only way I could think of to describe it. Now that albertocanfly brought it up, I’m completely picturing Little Red Riding Hood’s grandma making the sawdust cake.

This tea never gets old. Just so freakin’ good! Ughh can’t get over how amazing it is! This was the perfect tea for my miserable morning. I say miserable morning but holy shanghai, so many good things happened today!

Such as:

And this!

Hopefully those images work. xD A couple more highlights have happened today but I’ll have to post on instagram about it tomorrow…er…later today since it’s 1am here. :O


That sloth is SUPER cute!!

Maddy Barone

Cute dresses too!


Put the dresses on the sloth and get super DUPER cute?
The dresses are pretty awesome.


Thanks, Thekesser and Maddy Barone!

Heh Dustin , maybe doll clothes! But even when people dress up their dogs in clothes it’s a bit creepy for my tastes. xD I feel a lil bad for some of them. xD


Love your haul! But glad your day turned around. And I agree about this tea. I need more of it in my life. :)

A big ol thank you to VariaTEA for sending this tea my way!

Oh dessert teas. And it’s caffeine free as well! Ahh I love teas like this :)
This is dang good okay. It smells like a typical vanilla birthday cake dry, and the sweetness just carries over as it brews. The woodsy rooibos takes over a bit too much to my liking so the sweet birthday cake gets lost a bit, but it’s still totally fine.
But this is a lovely tea. Love love love all my rooibos at night :)

You should try coldbrewing this one if you haven’t already.


This is one of my favorites! :)

Backlogging from last night. Wow, this is sweet! Has a very strong sugary/mapley smell. The taste is pretty close to the description: vanilla icing and sugar. Substituted this instead of some sorbet for dessert last night and it definitely quelled the sweet craving.

2 teaspoons and a little vanilla half and half.

I thought I read somewhere on here that this was like vanilla icing when you cold-steeped it. I tried it, and it didn’t work out. It tastes too medicinal, which is such a bummer. I guess I’ll have to stick to enjoying this one hot.

This tea is one of the guilty pleasures, the idea of adding ice cream (freeze dried or otherwise) just seems so wrong and yet it tastes so right! It’s just like drinking a hot mug of birthday cake, for better or for worse! The Rooibos is completely lost but one doesn’t sit down with a birthday cake tea actually looking for tea do they? It’s not something I could drink every day, but when that sugar craving hits and I have to have some sweet sin this hits the spot!

I try to lose weight but cake gets in the way! Problem solved! This is delicious and fun.

EDIT: Ok, so I had time to get over my initial excitement, and have a few more cups of this tea…II took my time and actually let myself taste it to the fullest. I can definitely understand why people love it, but after tasting Oh Canada, Birthday Cake and Creme Brulee, I can say that they all taste relatively the same. And that is just a big turn off. I thought the odd taste in the Birthday Cake tea was just a fluke, but it is also present in the other ones I listed above. A smoky, harsh flavor that irritates my throat. Must be the rooibos. I no longer care for this one for that reason.

I don’t know how I feel about this one. I added some splenda. I don’t know if I am tasting the splenda or the tea. There wasn’t anything special about it before the addition. I guess I am getting a little cake out of it. I have enough for another cup at some point. Does anyone have suggestions on how they usually prepare this to get the best taste?

Boiling 6 min, 0 sec 3 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

apparently this tea is a miracle as a cold brew.


Thanks! I don’t have enough to do the “double leaf over ice”. Is there any sort of leaf to water ratio to putting it in a jug in the fridge?

My room mate and I picked up a few teas at David’s this afternoon and this was first up on our to drink list and has been on my to buy list for about a month but I never seem to make it out to David’s Tea nearly as often as I’d like . They first brew I did of the tea was a bit on the week side. However after a second brew with more leaves and a longer steep time my opinion of it greatly improved. It was sweet and aromatic and tasted like creamy vanilla frosting. I have been disappointed recently with two of the vanilla teas I purchased but this was the right amount of sweet I was looking for. Not to mention it’s caffiene free status as a rooibos makes it an excellent treat before bed and the sprinkles make it fun even if they leave tye-dye splotches on the grating of my infuser.
