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!

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.



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!



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


Flippin’ Gorgeous!

Almost unbelievably, this is both a wonderful refreshing tea, and a (calorie free) slice of Victoria Sponge in one go! Mmmmm, raspberry jam and vanilla... One of my absolute favourites.


Fruity and delicious

My favourite. Fruity aroma and taste, reminiscent of sponge cake. I enjoy best with a splash of milk, my partner adds a little honey too. Stock up.



It's like they've distilled a sponge cake into liquid form, whilst loosing none of the taste or experience!


Surprise Favourite!

If you are unsure about buying this tea stop pondering and just order it. It really does smell and taste like Victoria sponge cake. I'm already regretting only buying the small pouch of this as I only received it a week ago and I'm almost out already. I will definitely be ordering more. I have liked every bird and blend tea I've tried so far however this is one of my favourites so far.


too much coconut...

Coconut prensece is too strong... does not remind me of a Victoria sponge, but overall, it's not bad.



Love this! The raspberry is such a nice flavour.


Plenty of raspberry but not really a CAKE tea.

Big old raspberries (my favorite!) with mostly a green base from the raspberry leaves. I used probably a teaspoon and a half. I didn’t want to steep this one for four minutes because I saw a TON of raspberry leaves in it. I think it steeped for three minutes. I’m not sure where the name comes from.. this doesn’t taste like cake. I don’t think raspberry leaves would taste like cake anyway. The black tea isn’t a strong one.. and it would probably need something like vanilla or something to taste like cake. That is probably what the coconut is for, but it isn’t enough. There is a nice raspberry flavor though! It is certainly DELICIOUS, just not what I expect. ...Read more


Wishing for a stronger raspberry

I'll be honest and say that I wish it had a bit stronger raspberry flavor. The black tea balances nicely with the sweeter cake flavors, I was just expecting a stronger berry flavor to the actual tea. It smells amazing before brewing though. Like literal perfection. I just wish it tasted as good as it smells.


Tea perfection

I ordered this one feeling sceptical as I'm not madly keen on Birthday Cake or Christmas Cake but I LOVED it - the raspberry is gently sweetening - it's a lovely tea....


Raspberry Cake Goodness!

The last time I tried this, I’m not sure I knew what a Victoria Sponge was. Luckily, now I’ve watched enough Great British Bake Off to get the reference. ;)

This definitely delivers on the raspberry aspect. I got a whole freeze-dried raspberry in my steeping basket, and was delighted to see that it had reconstituted itself into a fresh raspberry when I removed the lid.

I do get a light cake and cream flavor as well, which makes perfect sense given the theme. I’m not sure I agree with the addition of coconut here. Maybe they were hoping the coconut would boost the cream aspect? But to me, it feels out of place.

But this is still yummy raspberry cream cake goodness. I can’t really taste the base tea, and I don’t even care… XP

Jammy and nostalgic

I bought this because, being on a diet, I though it might fulfil the urge for cake - and it does in a way.

It has a sweet and strawberry (or is it raspberry ? - well some sort of red berry anyway) jam sort of flavour. I call it nostalgic because drinking it reminded me of childhood summers - a kind of pot pourri feeling.



This is just as delicious as it sounds. Seriously if you're thinking about trying it DO IT.


Sponge cake

Really does smell like Victoria sponge. Sounds a bit odd but the tea is really beautiful, fully recommend.



This is a wonderful late morning pick-me-up brew - it's sweet and refreshing with the raspberry brings notes of summer.
