I got a bit excited and ordered a whole tin of this one.
Sometimes, you take a risk and it pays off. Sometimes it doesn’t. Like this time.
Unfortunately, Carrot Cake is not for me. I wanted to like it. The description sounded so perfect. Oolong! Apples! Coconut! Carrots! What’s not to love?
But there’s a smell to this that I find very off-putting. Maybe it’s the mysterious “flavouring.” It’s artificial and unpleasant, and makes every sip a task to not inhale as I drink. Gives me a headache actually.
Anyway, I’ve since put the tin out in the common area for others to partake in, and there have been several people who have approached me to say how much they love it. Maybe I’m just crazy.
And maybe I’ll think twice next time before impulse-buying tea online…
