I will admit it right off the bat. I have tried to play Portal and I was absolutely awful at it. To the point where my kiddos were like “It’s ok Mommy, you are good at other things.” I used to think I was good at video games, guess that just isn’t the case anymore. In that moment, I knew I was old. (ha!)
Geeky Teas is one of my favorite tea shops. They produce fun unique handed blended teas that scream with personality and of course I love the idea that they are based on fandoms. The Cake Is A Lie blend is a mix of black tea, vanilla flavorings, candy sprinkles, creme flavor, and caramel flavor. Just take a whiff of the dry leaf mix and you can smell each and ever one of those ingredients. The dry leaf smells simply divine. One of those teas that you feel like you are gaining weight just by smelling the tea.
Brewed up with freshly prepped boiling water, I allowed this tea to steep for about 4 minutes. I waited a few moments to let the tea cool and took my first sip. Oh my Goodness! This tea isn’t just good. It’s brilliant! This tea is the king of dessert teas! The black tea is the silent base that is giving the flavors to be the star. The creme and the caramel are the flavors you really get along with a chocolate note here and there. The flavors all combined really doesn’t taste like a chocolate cake. I have tried so many different teas that say they taste like cake, this one really does!
This may be the best tea I have tried yet from Geeky Teas. I see a large pouch of this blend in my future!
