drank Carrot Cake by The NecessiTeas
709 tasting notes

Received this one in round 1 secret pumpkin swap from RogersCK.

I was a bit skeptical but this one is pretty decent. There is a rooibos taste, but there is also a kind of carrot cake type taste. I would not say there is much cake flavour in this. But I do get hints of cinnamon and nuts. I would have guessed almonds until I read the description and it said walnuts. I am getting the slightest sweet tart taste that you get in real good homemade cream cheese icing. There is a bit of a carrot taste, maybe. There is something I can’t quite put my finger on. I think if I would have tried this without knowing the name of the tea, I would have called it coffee cake, or greek shortbread.

Bio

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
