A Lovely Celebration Tea

First, this is a really lovely looking tea. The star shaped sprinkles are a really fun surprise when you're scooping it! Second, it tastes delicious. If you're a fan of Vicky's Sponge Cake, this is very similar. It is lightly sweet and fruity and it smells really lovely.


Delicious cake goodness

I was lucky enough to get a free sample of this bad boy and I couldn't be happier. It tastes identical to the sponge of a birthday cake and has a subtle sweetness to it. This and rhubarb and custard are my joint favourite rooibos blends. Definitely will be getting a tin of this and will make sure it's always topped up.



Really nice tasting tea, I like it with a little honey or agave. Also, occasionally I pick out one or two of the sprinkles for eats before I add the hot water!
Delivery was also fast and I got a nice little thank you note and some free samples.


Happy Birthday to Me!

A friend bought me some of this for my birthday (very apt) and I fell head over heels for it! I've never really tried Rooibos before but I've found that as tannin sets off my IBS, it's much nicer on my stomach, and caffeine free so I can drink anytime! It tastes JUST like cake with none of the calories and the sprinkles always make me smile.


Full of surprises

I was slightly unsure of the thought of this one but was pleasantly surprised, I would definitely buy this one again. It had a very smooth texture, and is slightly sweet but not too sweet. It's a good all round have any time of day, kind of tea.


Tea for a treat

I love rooibos tea as it is naturally caffine free. I usually drink it in the evenings but this is an any time tea. It is very slightly sweet which some may not like but it is only a hint as I cannot bear sugar in my tea. I find it very refreshing and it feels like a treat to drink it. Smells wonderful too. I love Birthday cake ice cream so this is great as it has a lot less calories!

I tried a sample 20g pack and will be ordering more.

Tasty but underwhelming

Our office are a fan of sweet teas so perhaps this is just our preference, but Birthday Cake seemed caught between something which we thought ought to have been sweet/ vanilla tasting but felt a lot less celebratory. Still drinking it though which is a good sign! Perhaps a stronger kick of vanilla might help.


Not just for birthdays!

One of my absolute favourite Bird and Blend teas. I’m a real fan of Rooibos blends and this one is hard to beat. Less calories than cake but full of joy!


Lovely cake treat in tea form

This has the easily recognisable vanilla flavour you get in a birthday cake and makes for a nice little treat. The star-shaped sprinkles are a very cute addition and add to the slightly indulgent feel of this tea. Not quite my favourite from Bird and Blend, but a fun blend nonetheless.



Top 3 favourite teas! Perfect if you like your rooibos tea sweet and comforting! Tastes and smells exactly like a beautiful vanilla cake layered with butter icing. Love it! Also try Moondrop Dreams and Lazy Boy.


Just like a tub of ben and jerrys

Love the flavour of this tea, tastes like ben and jerrys birthday cake ice cream (without all the calories) normally have it with a splash of milk.


Cute tea

It taste lika vanilla cake, it has cute sprinkles in it.


As it describes

This one actually tasted a lot like cake which surprised me, it was really good but not my favourite.


A dreamy cup of yumminess!

The Birthday cake tea is my new favourite after dinner treat! I love drinking it with some oat milk to create a dreamy cup of yumminess. If i’m Craving something sweet, this tea is my go to. Plus, the colourful sprinkles make this tea extra cute!


Happy un-birthday to everybody

Delicious tea - needs a quite a brew time to get flavour infused (which might be the size of my cups), but when it gets there it's well worth it!



This was my very first tea flavour with Bird & Blend and I'm really impressed! It smells absolutely amazing whilst it's brewing so I was really excited! I believe I took the name too literally expecting this to taste like actual cake HOWEVER this is so dang TASTY! It's has a really wonderful vanilla taste with some florals, as well as cute star sprinkles in the mix! If you are bored of normal tea, this is going to be your new go to! ...Read more


Sweet and festive! Birthday cake (with sprinkles)!

The description says black tea but I don’t see any black leaves in my blend. This is mostly rooibos but whoa is B&B’s rooibos some of the best: all smooth and delicious. It’s almost like strawberries! I think the sugar from the adorable star sprinkles are improving the rooibos. Other than that, I only see purple flowers in the blend and there isn’t much flavor other than the rooibos itself. I’m not really sure how this tea could claim to be cake, maybe it should just be called “birthday”. As a rooibos blend, this is a win. Rooibos haters could be swayed with B&B’s base, I think. I used a Tsac and there weren’t any rooibos particles in the mug. The second steep was good too, but it lost most of the strawberry flavor for some reason. Not bad, but I’d definitely prefer my favorite teas on my birthday (very well could be many of B&B’s blends)....Read more


*MY tea*

I'm a strong believer that every person has a particular tea that is absolutely 'theirs'. Birthday Cake is MY tea; the perfect blend of vanilla sweetness and earthy undertones, and the starry sprinkles are a delightful touch. Love, love, love.


Cake in a mug

A fab tea that sorts out a sweet craving without you reaching for actual cake. Perfect when watching what you eat, feels like a naughty treat without the calories.


One of the best teas i have ever tasted

This tea is just delicious, the first flavour I tried and the one that got me obsessed with this brand of tea. It smells delicious and tastes even better, I added just a dash of rice milk for some extra sweetness. It's definitely a birthday cake in a cup!
