drank Lemon Pound Cake by DAVIDsTEA
16 tasting notes

Was not expecting to love this tea as much as I do. When it first launched a month or two ago, I was looking at it like “Really?” “Did this really need to be a tea flavour?” Well – I was pleasantly surprised because it’s quite tasty. I am not a fan of lemongrass but the lemongrass in this takes a backseat – thankfully. This tea contains some artificial flavours – I know a lot of people get really wigged out over that, but honestly it doesn’t taste that way. More of a “I wonder how they did that?” kind of thing. Upfront is mostly that “baked” flavour found in some other dessert teas, and lemon. The oolong is mellow and …I want to say floral.

Got this in the breakfast collection. Debating on buying a bag of this on its own now :)

Hi, I’m MG. I’m a gal in my mid 20’s, recently graduated from college. I am an illustrator by trade but have other hobbies on the side such as jewellery making, writing, and video games.

I am a casual amateur in teas. I enjoy trying most things. My favourite teas are greens, whites, florals, and dessert teas. I have a sweet tooth which dictates many impulse purchases. I really, really love a mellow black tea with rose. Am currently on a quest to find a nice clean rose/ black tea that doesn’t have any other flavours added.

Teas I really am not a fan of would be overly sour/ smokey pu’erhs, wine-flavoured teas, teas with hot chili in them, and teas that involve star anise/ licorice. I enjoy lighter pu’erh or pu’erh blends but I feel that tea should not taste smokey. Ew. I love wine, I just think trying to drink it hot or combine it with tea is nasty. And as for anise, it’s just a flavour I have strongly disliked since childhood. I’ve tried to like it many times…just..no. If I detect the slightest hint of licorice in a non-medicinal tea, it loses major points or gets chucked.

My rating system:

95-100: A perfect favourite. Loving it and hoarding mass quantities to keep forever.

90-94: Favourite, I will crave it often and repurchase indefinitely.

80-89: Very good, I enjoy it a lot and will purchase.

70-79: Left a good impression and will probably keep some around.

60-69: Drinkable but probably won’t be repurchasing.

40-59: Fail. Did not enjoy, but finishable.

0-39: Somehow this tea managed to be truly awful. These teas are about as rare for me as the 95-100’s.
