Huh, I expected this one to be more special, but really, I only taste a boring, plain, somewhat astringent black tea. Hot, there was nothing cakey or desserty about it. I don’t even taste vanilla. With additions, it can be decent, but I’ve had much better cake teas. I added cake batter flavoring the last time I had it to give it a boost. Now I’m drinking the rest chilled, and I can’t tell if it’s the tea or the flavoring I added (probably the latter) but it tastes pretty good!
