drank Ice Cream Cake by DAVIDsTEA
16 tasting notes

Mo sprinkles, mo better. After reading all the horrified reviews for Ice Cream Cake, I had to have it. This tea makes me giddy. The leaves, once steeped, look like the sad barfy aftermath of someone’s sweet 16. It smells cloyingly sweet – and there is a delightful sheen to the liquer from all those melted candy chips and chocolate curls. Yes. Sweet heavens above, YES.

I gave this a good steep of at about 5 minutes to make sure all the sprinkles were melted. I will go for a shorter steep next time though, because some astringency is just starting to kick in and I don’t necessarily enjoy that. I will also sweeten it with cane sugar next time because I used stevia and it feels like it is covering up some of the flavour.

Overall I love this tea. It’s a great little sweet comfort on saturday mornings, or as a reading snack. I have purchased 100 grams so as to not run out anytime soon.

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.
