As 2017 quickly approaches, I went through my teas again to determine teas for my sipdown box. That meant I pulled all the teas from 2016 or earlier and tossed them into the box. I also pulled teas that are in shitty packaging since I don’t trust those to last as long. This was among the teas in the former category and with only a teaspoon left, it was an easy finish.
This has white chocolate in it so it does get a touch of that oil on top, however, in the case of this cup, it is more visible to the eye than the mouthfeel which is good. Tastewise this is sweet. Sweet rooibos that blends with the other flavors to be a bit caramel-like that goes well with what I would call “a bit of a cakey vibe” . However, rather than Red Velvet, it is more generic dessert tea than anything and though it is enjoyable, it is not worth restocking, especially when I can easily obtain DAVIDsTEA’s Birthday Cake which is very similar and far more nostalgic.
