    We know there is nothing better than a cuppa tea and cake (except perhaps a cake flavoured cuppa!)

    This black loose leaf tea blend is inspired by the Victoria's sponge cake, which was invented by Queen Victoria herself! She found that afternoon tea just wasn't enough and needed a little extra - we like your thinking QV!

    A perfect blend of vanilla & raspberry with black tea - I say!

    Ingredients

    Sri Lankan Black Tea, Freeze-Dried Raspberry, Raspberry Leaves, Desiccated Coconut, Natural Flavouring

    Warning: Packed in an environment that contains nuts.

    Hit & Miss

    It's very hard to decide how to rate this one. When you it right then it really does taste like victoria sponge in tea form! Unfortunately this is much easier said than done. It's very easy to end up with too much raspberry, or too much coconut, or not very much of any flavour. I found shaking the bag helped a little, especially once it started to get emptier, but not completely. Luckily I got this as a free pouch, and it had been a flavour I was interested in trying, but now that I have I don't think it's one I would choose to buy in future.
