lProduct Description

There is nothing better than a cuppa and cake (except perhaps a cake flavoured cuppa!) and did you know it was our good old queenie Victoria who invented the Vicky Sponge? Guess the name gives it away a bit! She loved taking afternoon tea with her home girls but decided they needed some extra nourishment to last until dinner. Cake it is then! We like your thinking QV!

So lovely that I got goosebumps!

I never thought anything would ever topple a good peppermint brew off the top spot of my all time favorite teas, but this went and did it! You look at the description and you think, "Nah, that'll never taste like a cake!" but oh it does. Sweet, creamy and the lovely ever so slight tartness coming through from the raspberries.

The first time I made up a cup of this I was already gobsmacked by how wonderful it smelled and then, when I took a sip, I actually got goosebumps cause it was just so lovely.

This tea is perfect enjoyed with a cakey treat, lots of books or curled up with your favorite film.

Cake in a cup

Smells amazing and tastes even better, love the raspberries

*****

Tastes just like cake!

Very scummy! Will definitely be buying again!

*****

Like eating cake

Really good tea, which tastes like biting into a cake. Not too sweet, and I am excited to try this as a cold brew (to potentially use in cocktails!) Currently enjoying it hot with milk :)

*****

By far my favourite!

I absolutely adore this tea. It's got a perfect balance of fruit from the raspberries without it being too overpowering.

*****

when you dont want to reach for the cake itself.....

You need to brew this one a little longer than usual but once you do it's like biting into a Victoria Sponge Cake. The creamy and jammy taste is spot on.

Delicious and Sweet

I'm not a fan of floral tea and I was worried about the raspberry in this but it's absolutely delicious. The tea is really nice but the flavour of vanilla and raspberry that you get after every mouthful is honestly incredible. It's the best tea to pair with cake!

*****

Perfect Jammy Treat!

I just ordered a small pack of this tea, and I'm completely smitten! With milk it genuinely tastes like you're having a scone with clotted cream and jam (I'm more of a scone person than a spongecake person, so that's my go-to association with the flavours). Definitely adding it to the hard rotation!

*****

All time favourite!

This tea has been a firm favourite of mine since I was introduced to Bird and Blend a few years ago. Tastes just like Victoria sponge cake with raspberry jam, just lovely.

*****

INCREDIBLE!!!

I was a bit sceptical, I've had 'cakey' blends from other companies and they've always been a bit weak and flimsy. This is completely different, bold and full of flavour - a lovely vanilla sponge taste and then you get hit with sweet ripe juicy raspberries - hands down my all-time favourite tea!

*****

Best tea ever!

I wasn’t sure what to expect but it’s everything it says it is and more. The most incredible tea I’ve tried in a long time. We’ve just ordered a 300g bag!!

*****

Favorite mid-morning brew

This has long been one of my favorite teas. It's got a wisp of vanilla and a lovely aroma of raspberry. I also think it's great when I have cramps - like drinking in a warm blanket.

*****

Can you drink cake? YES!

Smells and tastes exactly like you’re drinking a Victoria sponge cake! You can taste the cream and jam, it’s beautiful! Only downside, it sometimes curdles with soya milk. Tastes so good, I’m powering through it!

Super tasty tea

Was so delicious, will definitely be buying again, it tastes exactly like you are drinking a slice of cake.

*****

Like having fresh raspberries

Despite of being a black tea it's quite fruity and with a nice hint of vanilla flavour, it's great!

*****

Not for me

Unfortunately Vicky's Sponge Cake and I didn't get along. However I made the team aware and they were kind enough to send me a bag of of another tea that I did like. Others may find this tea delicious it's just not for me. Still leaving 5 stars though due to the amazing customer service.

*****

Favourite!

My absolute fave - perfect balance of black tea and a hint of sponge cake. Not too sweet. Delicious!

*****

Summer in a teacup!

This tea is one of my all-time favourite blends! The raspberry taste really comes through, but not in an over-powering way. Plus, the health benefits of raspberry leaf really give me a boost. It's also got a really delicious hint of vanilla that isn't overly sweet but adds a lovely taste. Perfect with oat milk!

*****

Obsessed!

I got a 20g sample as I wasn't sure and I immediately had to buy a bigger bag as I'm obsessed with this tea. It's strong black tea with the most lovely raspberry flavour, it's sweet and creamy, a splash of milk and it makes the most amazing afternoon treat
