drank Carrot Cake by DAVIDsTEA
296 tasting notes

Day 36 of my 101 days of tea challenge. Got a tin of this on the DAVIDsTEA boxing day sale.

I actually like this. The taste is reminiscent of spiced carrot cake, and is quite pleasant, if a little weak. It doesn’t resteep particularly well — I found it losing flavour faster than a lot of other teas. However, not bad the second time around at least.

The carrot is the strongest flavour, though not overpowering. It’s a rather subtle tea, and I think I might see whether a bit of sweetener might further enhanse it next time. However, it was perfectly good on its own.

Those who like carrot cake for the cake will probably enjoy this tea. Those who need the icing for it to really be a true carrot cake? Perhaps not as much. (I myself live in both camps from time to time, hense why I can enjoy this myself.)
