From DAVIDsTEA

Lose yourself in sumptuous layers of fresh vanilla & decadent white chocolate and a mouth-watering redberry finish. This pink treat tastes like a fluffy chiffon dessert that’ll have you saying “let them sip cake!”

What makes it great:

Ruby chocolate is the hottest thing in desserts right now, so why just stop at food? Sip the treat everyone’s talking about.

Pink is undoubtedly the best colour, and chocolate is the best treat. Pink + chocolate = the dream team.

Don’t add milk (yup, we said it), this blend is naturally creamy on its own!

How it tastes:
Fresh vanilla & white chocolate chiffon cake with a sweet redberry filling.

Pineapple (pineapple, sugar), Rosehip shell, Apple, White chocolate (sugar, cocoa butter, whole milk powder, sunflower lecithin), Hibiscus, Strawberry, Natural chocolate flavouring, Cocoa bean, Natural vanilla flavouring, Rose petal, Pink cornflower petal, Rhubarb, Natural sweetness flavouring with stevia.

Bleh, I really don’t like something here, maybe rose? It makes this blend quite sour and peppery. There’s also something fake and strange tasting in there. With milk, it’s a little less unpleasant, but it really isn’t the tea for me. I tried it again cold brewed, and I still tasted way too much sour, fake weirdness. I won’t be having more.

Not sure about the peppery quality, but the sourness might be the rhubarb? This one was inspired by Ruby chocolate so it does deliberately have a sour taste to it to recreate the sharp berry notes of the chocolate – but I totally get not vibing with it. It’s a particular flavour, for sure.

I didn’t really taste the chocolate but loved the candy taste to it

I feel like I have so many thoughts about this tea! Where to start…

I guess the easiest place is to say that it was part of the fairly recent Valentine’s Day launch that happened – it’s the only new tea, though there’s a handful of returning ones like Chocolate Rocker and Read my Lips.

I know I’m absolutely biased because I came up with it, but I just love the name of this tea. I think it really captures the spirit of the blend while still giving some freedom of interpretation. It’s not exactly like “Pink Velvet Cake” is a thing the same way Red Velvet Cake is so, in that case, what should a Pink Velvet Cake taste like!? I would say probably it’s safe to assume it’ll be lighter in flavour than Red Velvet Cake and I think that’s definitely true of this tea. Maybe it means it’s white chocolate instead of regular/Dutch chocolate? That’s also sort of true though more on the chocolate inspo of this tea later in the tasting note…

Overall I would say this is an interesting mix of sweet creamy white chocolate frosting with a slight tart fruity edge to it. I get a sort of red berry and rhubarb kind of taste but it’s a little hard, I think, to exactly name the type of fruitiness if you’re not heavily focusing on it. I think that openness to interpretation does, again, work with the concept. How many people can tell you exactly what RVC tastes like? I know some people know that “authentic” RVC is cream cheese frosting on a cake that’s red due to the chemical reaction between the cocoa in the batter with acid (baking soda/buttermilk, traditionally) but I know not everyone done. Some people don’t even know there’s cocoa in the batter…

With all of that said, it might surprise people to know that this kind of unique and ethereal “Pink Velvet Cake” wasn’t how this tea started. During development what we had it mind was actually Ruby Chocolate. For a while Ruby Chocolate was very trendy and you were seeing it all over the place. Kit Kat did a really interesting Ruby Chocolate bar and Haagen Daaz also had a Ruby Chocolate coated icecream bar that I really liked too. If you’re not familiar with this gorgeous pink hued chocolate; it has a very sour berry kind of sharp taste to it. Sometimes I get just under ripe strawberries when I eat it. However, that unique sort of fruity high note is offset with the rich creaminess of the chocolate. So, that’s ultimately why this ended up being a hibiscus/white chocolate based tisane since we were aiming to go for the fruit sharp snap of Ruby Chocolate with the creamy mouthfeel and sweetness.

I personally really like how this tea came out overall, and I think it’s fun to kind of take these more ethereal and open ended profiles and play in the space. I definitely have been waiting to read and listen to some reviews because I think it will be really fun to see how others feel about this one and when their expectations and interpretation of the Pink Velvet Cake concept are!

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.

Sounds like fun!

(DavidsTea 2022: 12)

I had a bunch of free tea rewards, so decided to use one on this interesting-sounding tea. I’m not sure how I feel about it – the aroma is very sweet, kind of like a light strawberry icing? The flavour is also oddly familiar, from another DT, but I can’t place which. Maybe there’s a hint of Chocolate Earl Grey (minus the bergamot)? I definitely taste the creamy white chocolate and the rose. It’s not too bad; kind of sweet and artificial and not a tea I’ll buy again but it might make an interesting latte?
