drank Carrot Cake by Della Terra Teas
94 tasting notes

Received as a free sample as part of my order from Della Terra Teas. You guys are just awesome. :) I wanted to try this one!

Oh, wow. This is very sweet and carroty. The other reviews I’ve read are right – I can taste the cream cheese frosting! It is literally almost like biting into a carrot cake. A little spicy, a little zesty with a creamy sweet aftertaste. Words cannot describe what I’m feeling right now. This is amazing and something I’ll definitely be ordering one day.

I haven’t been feeling too great today…very queasy and tired and achy. :( Maybe I wore myself out today. I made this tea because I didn’t want something chocolatey and rich to potentially upset my stomach even more after everything today. So far, I’m really happy with my choice!

Sounds like one I need to put on my shopping list for when I order from them again. Hopefully I can talk myself into a sampler next time.

Bio

My name is Yvonne. I’m 20 and live in a snowy Canadian wasteland known as Manitoba.

I’m relatively new to the loose tea world, although I used to drink generic Red Rose tea constantly. A friend introduced me to a Teavana tea one chilly winter and I got myself slightly intrigued. Went to purchase it myself, used shoddy equipment to prepare it, and was discouraged.

Christmas 2013 rolled around, and despite having an awful holiday for other reasons, I received some of Teavana’s Cha Yen Thai as a gift after asking for chai tea. I went out and bought a proper infuser cup and was instantly hooked. Now my tea collection is steadily growing! I’m obsessed!

I like:
Dessert teas, black teas, oolong, rooibos, pu’erh, mate, chai, chamomile, chocolate, coconut, cinnamon, pineapple, tropical mixes, nutty, sweet, complex flavours, indulgent flavours

I do NOT like:
Green teas, herbal teas, white teas, teas too overbearing with fruit, pure tisane, cloyingly sweet teas, hibiscus, peanuts, burning my mouth

I am lactose intolerant (pretty severely, actually – I do not consume any dairy product) but I find that the miniscule amounts of dairy found in some teas don’t bother me for the most part.

100 – My absolute favourite teas. Without them, I will cry salty tears of despair.

99 – 95 – Cream of the crop, although missing SOMETHING to make them a perfect favourite. Not something I couldn’t possibly live without, but pretty darn close. Lots of teas in this category tend to reach 100 eventually.

95 – 75 – Yummy, but if it disappeared tomorrow I’d quietly mourn it for about 15 minutes and move on to a favourite. Leaves something to be desired.

75 – 50 – Passable, but not by much. Something I’d really have to be in the mood for to drink.

50 and lower – Nope nope nope. Not for me. Probably couldn’t or had a hard time finishing the cuppa. Doooown the sink.
