Day 14 DavidsTea 24 Days of Tea advent calendar – Lemon Pound Cake. I made it all of 2 sips into this and gave up. Does it taste " just like a sweet slice of lemon pound cake" as it claims to? Yes, but not any homemade version I’ve ever tried. Maybe some Little Debbie mass produced nightmare of a lemon pound cake. I’ll give it that. But I wouldn’t eat a Little Debbie mass produced nightmare of a lemon pound cake, so I certainly don’t want to drink something mimicking one either. It also has an odd bitterness to it that doesn’t sit well.
If you like having your tastebuds walloped with artifice, sugar and lemon, then by all means go crazy. Me, I couldn’t hack it. Far too many layers of resounding Nope. I like a good dessert-y tea from time to time (emphasis on good), but this one ain’t it. DT keeps doing this to me: lots of fake and too much sweet, all too often.
(One last note: there’s an error on the advent calendar packaging and this is listed as a level 2 for caffeine, but it’s not that. On the DT site it’s listed as level 1, which I do believe to be more accurate.)
Flavors: Artificial, Bitter, Lemon, Sweet
