Plus it’s got all the warmth and comfort of a festive spice cake, minus the calories. Serve it with your favourite teatime dessert for a sophisticated afternoon treat.

another sipdown Still too sweet and weird for me at the end of the day.

Now, I was really excited after smelling the raw ingredients and knowing that many have already enjoyed this steep. However, I have to say, I was a bit disappointed after my first few sips. This isn’t a bad tea, but I also don’t find anything particularly special or unique about it. It has the bitter black tea feel, but I am shocked that I don’t get the hint of any orange giving its smell. The fruit elements combine together to create a more subtle spice cake flavoring, but the orange is absent. As well, I find the flavor more hidden and subtle rather than the bold flavor I would normally expect from a black tea blend.

Thank you Roswell Strange for sharing this with me. It definitely screams sweet citrus, which isn’t bad and at least the sweet is from sugar and not stevia. There is also a strong caramel note. So those two elements are checked off and present in excess. I just wish there was also some actual spice. There is sweet on sweet and spice would be an awesome counter balance.

Tastes like those Terry’s chocolate oranges from Christmas. A bit heavy on stevia but a cozy tea.

Definitely a nice, festive holiday blend that is a bit more unique. I’m mainly getting a candied citrus peel (caramely sweetness with some bitterness from the peel). I don’t get any spice, but I’m okay with that. I’m actually really enjoying this tea. I was hesitant my first couple sips, but the more I drink it, the more I want to keep drinking it.

First tea from today, and honestly probably the best one!?

Out of all the cake teas from my giant seventeen tea line up, this is probably tied with AQ2T’s Red Wine Apple Cake for my favourite and I think it was almost definitely the favourite of my coworkers from the tasting I organized. Of course, we all have at least a little bit of bias though…

I just enjoy how smooth this is, and the flavour was very caramelized citrus. Not too sweet though, which is important for something that tastes caramelized.

Friendly reminder that I do not numerically rate DAVIDsTEA blends as I’m currently employed there and it would be an obvious conflict of interest. Any blends you see with numerical ratings were rated prior to my employment there. These reviews are a reflection of my personal thoughts and feelings regarding the teas, and not the company’s.


This sounds good. I hate online exclusives!
