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!

10 out of 10 would buy again

This tea is an interesting fruity, milky, flavour that is surprisingly nice. I wouldn’t want it as my main everyday tea but it’s lovely with a slice of cake or on its own as a mid morning treat.


An Amazing Tea

I don’t know how they do it. I can taste the vanilla cake with the raspberry jam. This tea is so yummy. I could drink it every day.


Lovely Tea

I read the reviews before buying and I was still surprised at how much this tea tastes like a Victoria sponge! I love this tea! It's now my go-to tea on rainy days; it cheers me up so much!


So delicious!

This is the most delicious tea I've ever had! It tastes EXACTLY like Victorian Sponge Cake and is such a treat. Fully satisfying with no calories!


I could drink this all day

Victoria sponge cake is my favourite cake and when I saw a tea that tastes like it - I had to buy it. It tastes exactly exactly like the cake and really fulfils my cravings. Mmm.



Tastes and smells amazing! Love the sweet raspberry notes. Amazing with a splash of almond milk.


Strange Smell

I never had Vicky Sponge cake before but this definately did not smell or taste of raspberry in my opinion... oat milk makes it alot better but other than that wasn't my favorite :(


My favourite cake and my favourite tea

So nice I almost don't need any pudding... almost



I'm serious, it's like a light sponge cake dessert at a picnic on a sunny day that isn't too hot.


Tastes Just Like It Should

Vicky's sponge cake tastes exactly like a decadent slice of heaven. I live in the US but my best friend lives in Southern England and this tea brings me right back to all the lovely afternoon teas we've spent exploring the countryside. I can't travel right now (thanks Corona virus) but this tea reminds me of great afternoons and is my go-to for a lovely afternoon treat. So good!


Love this tea

This tea is great - it's a slightly mellow yet sweet black tea - so brilliant!


Amazing Taste

Just like a piece of cake, also I do recommend shaking up the tea a little to evenly disperse the black tea leaves, as I had not done this beforehand, The tea had curdled after adding some non-dairy milk to it. I also recommend that you add full-fat non-dairy milk to the tea to prevent it curdling.


ALMOST the ideal Vicky sponge!

Really nice, but just a tiny bit too much coconut for me and not enough taste of the cake and raspberry due to this. But still a real pleasure to drink!


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!
