drank Lavender Buttercream by DAVIDsTEA
88 tasting notes

I am a big fan of floral teas (and floral desserts in general) – the more jasmine, rose, or lavender flavor, the better. I’m also someone who doesn’t add extra sugar to their tea. Lavender Buttercream is both not lavender-y enough for me and too sweet for me, with its big lumps of sugar crystals in the mix. My first few sips of this, I actually recoiled at the lingering, chemical sweetener taste that it leaves in the mouth. I like it much better cold than hot, for some reason, as that aftertaste seems to dissipate quite a bit when it’s cold. It’s sort of like birthday cake and buttercream frosting, but with the taste of dye and chemical something amped way up in that frosting. The lavender is a barely there afterthought, just a hint of floral. I prefer their regular Birthday Cake tea, and their Lavender Swirl tea is absolute heaven.

I’m honestly not incredibly knowledgeable about teas. My experience with tea is mainly with Adagio when I am in the States and DavidsTea when I am in Canada. DavidsTea made me fall in love with tea. I was initially seduced by their cake flavored teas and then started branching out and finding more and more to love. I like all of their bright colors and seasonal mugs, and I enjoy their fun ‘flavored teas’ as much as their more traditional teas. I figure this is at least a good starting point :)
