Take the cake

There’s nothing more nostalgic than a classic coffee cake. Just picture it. That dense, yellow cake, dotted with fruit and topped with crumbled brown sugar. And this sweet, fragrant black tea blend is every bit as satisfying. It has all the aroma of a fresh baked coffee cake, plus an energy boost from rich black tea and a fruity hint of cherry and pineapple. Now getting that fresh-from-the-bakery taste is so simple, it’s a piece of cake.

Ingredients: Black tea, cherries, pineapple, natural and artificial cake flavouring

This was the second time I have tasted this tea. I was unimpressed the first time around. But today I felt like having a mild slightly sweet black tea—this filled the bill nicely.

I tried making a pot of this but I was done after a cup. It smells fine at first, but then you drink it and it’s just meh. It tastes like bitter maple syrup.

And as it cools, it just starts to smell so weird. I had left some in the cup this morning and I took it to the sink to dump, and it seriously smelled like sausage or something because of that overpowering artificial maple.

Maybe somewhere someone likes this because I’d love to swap out what remains.

This reminds me a lot of their Red Velvet Cake with a heavy after taste of cherry. It smells really delicious, my husband even wanted a sip. It has a much better smell than taste. I’ll finish it but I wish it had more black tea flavor.

I have never had this in my cupboard but I quite like it. Cakey and caramelly. With eggnog at my sweetie’s family dinner yesterday.

This was my favourite tea from last years Winter Collection, and I was extremely pleased to see a 250g bag in the Web Specials section this week, as I thought it may never be available again.
It’s delicious. As many have said, taste is similar to Red Velvet Cake, with a slight hint of maple and fruit. I don’t find it to be overly sweet or artificial, as I can still taste the black tea. I will drink this tea any time of the day, any season of the year. YUM

I’ve been wanting to try some teas from David’s for a while now. I wish they would add smaller size options to their website! This smells quite similar to Della Terra’s Pineapple Upside Down Cake, and there are even little pieces of candied pineapple in there. It has the same butter/cake flavoring scent. At first I thought there was only one serving in the sample package, but it turns out there’s enough for two. Yay! I steeped for 4 minutes.

This tastes very similar to Pineapple Upside Down Cake too. It has the same artificial butter and cake flavors that I don’t love in that blend. I definitely wouldn’t describe this as coffee cake, there’s no spice element. When I think of coffee cake, I picture the kind with cinnamon and sugar streusel over the top. Yum! But this isn’t it. Boo. :(

Another tea that smells good enough to eat – like fruit and caramel. The flavour is distinctly cakey and sweet – like caramelized brown sugar. There’s also a slight fruity undertone although it subtle and I can’t really pick out any fruit in particular. This tea is delicious – like dessert in a cup. I hope Davids Tea brings this blend back next winter because I’d say it’s my favourite out of all the teas that were in the Winter Sampler.

I would not call this one coffee cake, maybe more spice cake, but it is all really similar, I am just being picky this morning.

This one tastes thick, there is some spice flavour, a bit of nuttiness. There is a strong vanilla component but it is a bit too strong, just verging on bitter. I am not getting any fruit flavours at all. Overall it is ok for a Davids blend.

I wanted this tea to be a “BIG YES!!!” (Amy Pond I miss you) but instead it was a huge no. Nope. Not good tea.

I agree with previous reviewers, the dry leaf smells amazing. The brewed tea has an oily mouth-feel that I can’t overcome.

Thanks to Roswell Strange for the sample! But disappointingly, this one is not for me.

Roswell Strange

Oh no! Sorry this one wasn’t for you – but maybe that’s for the better since it was seasonal and isn’t sold anymore. If you had fallen in love then it would have been even more heartbreaking.


I agree haha! It’s one of the reasons that I hesitate to buy a lot of 52tea blends…I am afraid to fall in love with something with limited stock!

I was so excited to try this tea, sent along by Roswell Strange, as coffee cake is one of my favorite indulgences I rarely indulge in. But… This tea has very little to do with coffee cake. The dominate note for me was oily oil chemical oil. Some caramel perhaps, but the aftertaste is so bad you loose even that glimmer of taste to the oil.

Roswell Strange

Sorry neither of you found this one to your tastes :(


I’m wondering if maybe we left it open, soon after receiving your package we smelled all the teas and maybe it was left open and either moisture or some other smell got in.
