drank America's Birthday Cake by DAVIDsTEA
2868 tasting notes

Thank you to VariaTEA for the sample!

I coldbrewed it this morning (1 tsp leaf, 500 mL cold water, 10 minutes) and really enjoyed it. I can confirm that that “America’s Birthday Cake” (American version) and “Birthday Cake” (Canadian version) taste exactly the same. The only difference is that the US version has star shaped sprinkles of red/white/blue while the Canadian version has normal rod-shaped sprinkles in a rainbow of colours.

Mmm I love the cakey, custard, birthday cake icing, and caramel flavours in this. Just so good.

Flavors: Cake, Caramel, Custard, Pancake Syrup, Rooibos, Sugarcane, Sweet, Vanilla

Iced 8 min or more

America’s bday cake in theory has toffee. Like you, I thought they tasted the same

I am a biochem major hoping for a career in research genetics and evolutionary biology. I love science fiction and spend too much of my time reading comic books. I’m a passionate keeper of spiders, cacti, and exotic plants. I eat a vegan, plant-based diet for moral and environmental reasons (I mention this only because it is relevant to which flavoured teas I drink).

I drink mostly flavoured and low caffeine teas/tisanes, but I will try anything twice. As far as pure teas go, I gravitate towards whites, yellows, and jade oolongs. I’m always open for trades and sample sales/exchanges. Message me any time :)

My cupboard is mostly up to date. For a more comprehensive list, see my stash spreadsheet here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-HjWKR3um-xEnj6HC9vMvKXOAyj_bpW5u_2ixEC20-k/edit?usp=sharing
