drank Satsuma Spice Cake by DAVIDsTEA
606 tasting notes

Finally a SIPDOWN! It’s fun “shopping” in your own cupboard!
I’ve had this one in the cupboard for about 2 years now, but finally am drinking it now. It’s from an advent calendar and came in a baggie. I ended up using the whole sample as it didn’t look like it had much in the way of black tea leaves in there, but they were hiding under all the apple in the sample.

I can see how people would like this one, especially this time of year when everything is sugar and spice and everything nice, but for me it wasn’t all things nice. All I get is an over abundance of apple and sweet. The orange is there, but it definitely takes a backseat to the apple. DavidsTea is really bad for overloading a tea with apple, probably because it’s a cheaper ingredient (I believe it is anyway?).

So, would I buy this one again? No. Not unless they change the recipe and make it far more orange.
I tried it straight up and with milk and sugar. I shouldn’t have added the sugar as it’s far too sweet now, but either way, I didn’t really love this tea and will probably go make something different for myself now.

I’m a 30-something-year-old writer. I finished my first novel last year, which I’m editing this year amongst the world’s craziness and hoping to some day get it published. I’ve also written several short stories that I’m looking to get published someday

I work as a paginator (I do page layout for our local weekly newspaper) and absolutely love it! I’m also an amateur photographer.
I’m the proud mommy of two sweet little boys.
I’m married to an absolute amazing man who “puts up” with my tea obsession.

I became obsessed with tea a few years after high school.I started with Orange Pekoe double double (milk not cream), and peppermint. Since that time, I’ve really opened up to other kinds of tea and I’ve well… I’ve kind of just went nuts since then.

I’m a loose leaf fan, but if there are no other options, I will drink bagged.

I would have to say my favourite kinds of tea are (in no particular order): black, puerh cakes, herbal and matcha.

Green teas still aren’t a favourite for me, but I’m working on it.

I still can’t get myself to like mate teas, as much as I try, I just don’t like their flavour.

I drink tea every single day. I absolutely love it. I can’t image my life without it.

I don’t log every time I drink a tea as I don’t want to spam everyone with tons of duplicate loggings, but I will log when I have a new tea, which happens on a regular basis and when I do a SIPDOWN! :D
