    My husband used to say, "It just tastes like hot water...."

    Which is why he enjoys mint so much, I think. It's a stronger flavor.

    Tee hee.

    The 'cupcake' line came out last spring maybe? It was chocolate cake, birthday cake and icecream cake. I bought all three online in large amounts. Sadly I didn't like any of them. Pretty sure 2/3 they discontinued.. The icecream cake was so bad I was told I could return it and did.. No way to possibly drink it it was so so fake sweet.

    The red velvet cake I got a small amount of last week.. and it's on my need to buy more of list :) I hadn't heard of it till the winter tea menu.

    I need to check out some these websites. I'm not sure I could go for cupcake tea or any of that, though. It's still water based, and that would put me off slightly unless it was a very dark/rich tea. I have issues just putting milk in Chai. Lol.

    Tonight I'm having a Cozy Chamomile / I Love Lemon mixture (both by Bigelow) with a bit of honey. It's heavenly after such a long day.

    Hopefully the birthday cake isn't too bad. He doesn't mind artificially and overly sweet, but I do. I saw the ice cream cake and it sounded like way too much. The red velvet cake sounds amazing though. The only other super sweet tea we have is sugar cookie sleigh ride by Celestial Seasonings, so I'm excited.

    OMG sugar cookies.. in a tea!! I want in!!!!

    I'm on my way to David's Tea to get more red velvet cake. It was really quite yummy :)

    If you all really do like the birthday cake.. I'll happily send you my tin. Been in its tin, no heat no cold. I don't think I'll ever drink it when I have so many I do love.

    Even if he doesn't drink it, the package is still cool and he could sit it out like a decoration lol

    Thank you! I'll let you know! :D We can trade teas if he decides he likes it. I'll get some of the sugar cookie sleigh ride to send to you.

    I'm super excited for the red velvet cake. It sounds amazing. :)

    If he doesn't drink tea now, TARDIS tea may make him start ;) It's basically Earl Grey with a touch of vanilla and I think blackberry.

    Well, there's only one question that will definitively determine whether or not "lady" is appropriate . . . and CK9 asked that back in another thread, lol!
