drank Carrot Cake by Della Terra Teas
1400 tasting notes

I’m cranky. I’m tired. I wanted tea more than anything tonight, and had little patience to find something I really, really wanted without caffeine. So, I grabbed this. I actually grabbed a few others prior, because I wanted to try something Della Terra -ish tonight as I made an order with them. This was the only decaf that smelled like something other than the seemingly standard maple syrup -flavored pancake syrup smell I’ve come to associate with many of DT’s rooibos teas.

Dry and steeped, I got little from this other than perhaps some carrot and rooibos. It’s an okay blend, however I’m still getting that pancake-syrupy sweetness and little else. Cream cheese? I wish I tasted some. Carrot cake? Well, maybe. A little, teensy bit?

I feel like I’m doing something wrong with these teas, as all of the DTs have basically tasted the same to me, so far. Not going to rate it, as my crankiness has now taken over.

That must be why the Pumpkin one and the Oatmeal Cookie one are so similar – the ubiquitous “flavour”. I hope you find some that work for you.

I’m sure I will. Really though, I also know there are tons of folks here who will gladly take them off my hands. It could also be me and my general grouchiness tonight. A shower and some tea helped. :)

A few years ago, the obsession with tea started. The cupboard got bigger and bigger, more swaps occurred, group buys, secret rendezvous with local teapassionistas… and that’s how you end up with 500+ different kinds of tea in your home. At one time.

Now, it’s purge time. Time to gather what’s needed and let go of the rest. Almost all of the tea was given away, sold, or otherwise shared. A few relics still remain. It’s still a challenge to avoid the chipmunk-like hoarding of The Teas, yet, the lightness of being from having so little compels me more. And so, I’m happy to share (anytime!) and will occasionally desire small amounts of tea for swaps, just to try.

As for the day-to-day stuff, I’m focused almost entirely on Love, (yes, with a capital L), Spirit/Self, transformation, and work (dating columnist and consultant).

No-can-do: lavender, overly floral (French florals, or florals that are creamy rather than, well, floral work well!), sugar, Splenda, all grains.

Love: fruity, dessert, chai, spicy, all types of tea.
