I recently guest posted listing some of my favourite teas for spring over at Up The Rollercoaster. While Birthday Cake doesn’t seem like the most spring themed tea, sometimes you need to satisfy that sweet tooth and stay bikini ready. A cup of tea that tastes like vanilla cake with ice cream and sprinkles can help you fix that craving without the calories.
For me, David’s Tea Birthday Cake tea is best served as a latte. The foamy smooth milk gives you that creamy taste of icing on a cake (ok not really, but it is more satisfying that just a cup of tea and you can add more sprinkles to make it pretty). Not too many sprinkles though, they melt the foamed milk in lattes!

Even DavidsTea agrees that it is a spring tea, so much so that it was included in their Easter collection this year in cute little eggs that you can use to carry small amounts of tea.

DavidsTea Birthday Cake Steeping Instructions
- 1.25 tsp per cup (for a latte you want to double this to make up for the milk added)

As soon as you open the pack of Birthday Cake, the vanilla smell will fill the room. He can always tell when I am making a cup of it. For someone who is not a big tea drinker, Birthday Cake lattes are the one tea I know my boyfriend will never turn down!
