Made this as a latte since I read that someone said it resembled Davidstea birthday cake and OMG is it ever delicious! I like it BETTER than DT. Definitely reminds me of a vanilla cupcake.

My AQ2T box arrived today so I am back up in numbers. I can’t be mad though because all the teas sound awesome. I look forward to tomorrow when I can start exploring them.

Tonight I am exploring a tea from a different company. This tea tastes rather familiar though, despite this being the first time I tried it out. That’s because vanilla cupcake is very much like DAVIDsTEA’s Birthday Cake (just as Roswell Strange said). Given the comparison made by my tea twin, I made this my favorite way to make the DAVIDs tea…as a cold brew.

This definitely has the vanilla cake batter deliciousness, though it is also a touch citrus and the rooibos base, as it was with the other Tickled Tea rooibos I tried, is still quite present. It is alright but not worth going out of my way for given Birthday Cake is so accessible and, in my opinion, is slightly better.

ETA: the more I drink, the less I notice the base. Just silky vanilla batter. Upped the rating a bit.

Cold Brew Sipdown (276)!

This one was a lovely, surprise add in to my Tickled Tea order which I then decided to cold brew because I figured that it would come out similarly enough to DAVIDsTEA’s Birthday Cake blend for it to be enjoyable that style.

I was definitely right in that assumption: I think if you were drinking the two blends cold brewed side by side you’d likely be hard pressed to find a distinction. It’s smooth, vanilla cake batter – essentially. Tasty, to be certain, but not super stand out either. A solid option for those looking for a sweeter, caffeine free option to cold brew or make iced.

I just did a quick check on both websites as well, and for 50g you’re looking either pretty much identical costs – so, unless you have an employee discount like I do, it’s not a better deal either way. It would totally just boil down to, in my opinion, shipping costs or if you were interested in other teas from either vendor. Something to consider.
