  1. The discovery of red velvet tea motivated me to check whether there exists birthday-cake tea and salted-caramel tea.

    Yes. Bigelow does salted-caramel, but birthday-cake seems to be only in specialty brands.

    There is not (yet) sriracha tea, but it’s probably coming, since there are people who pour their sriracha sauce into green tea.

  2. I just had the chocolate-caramel and it tastes really chocolaty…pretty intense for a tea. I do like the fact that it is not a black tea, since those give me a headache. The only red velvet tea I’ve had is by Republic of Tea and it is very mild.

  3. they also brought out a, skinny caramel macchiato flavor of that big bottle espresso stuff.

    *blinks* people put sriracha in their green tea… say whaaaa –

    red velvet tea *blinks again*
    and unless it has some kind of cream cheese, how is this red velvet? isn’t RV (cake) just chocolate with a whole bottle of red dye?
    *googles* ew Stash Tea has one…
    Other Ingredients
    Cocoa shells, rooibos, hibiscus, cream cheese flavor, caramel flavor, vegetable juice color, and raspberry flavor.
    at least they put in cream cheese flavor!!!!!!!!

  4. The Red Velvet tea is really good….has just a hint of chocolate taste! The chocolate caramel has a strong cinnamon flavor to me!
