As VariaTEA mentioned the other day, this is totally like DAVIDsTEA’s Red Velvet Cake except it looks slightly different. It’s the exact same flavouring, and I also found this flavouring in TeaTaxi’s Red Velvet rooibos, which looks to have the same sprinkles and mini chocolate chips. Because this is supposed to have cherry in it, I did not see this coming at all. No cherry, sadly.
For anyone who hasn’t tasted RVC (the tea, that is), it does not taste anything like cake. It’s quite chemical and has a strange chocolate undertone with plastic icing. The liquor in these blends tend to get murky from all the sprinkles which leads to sweetness overkill. To think I blindly bought 100g of RVC for the cute tin and forced myself to drink through all of that. Yikes. This is reminding me of that.
On a more positive note, I’m back down to 50 teas!
