This month, I tried Tonia's Birthday Cake black tea by Steeped Tea, a local direct-selling tea company that has expanded across Canada and the US. Steeped Tea's Founder and President, Tonia, is also a January baby.
Tonia's Birthday Cake tea is supposed to taste like black forest cake. The label listed the following ingredients: black tea, sour cherry, cocoa bean bits, cocoa bean peels, almonds, rose blossom leaves, strawberry, safflower, natural flavors.
I stepped the tea for the recommended 3-minute time in my Royal Albert's polka blue tea for one set.
The breakfast cup is about twice the size of a standard teacup so fewer refills are required!
Tonia's Birthday Cake tea smelled wonderful.
My sweet tooth enjoyed the combined chocolate and fruit flavours in this dessert tea.
I also tasted a slight astringency so next time I'll try it with some milk.
Do you drink dessert teas?
