I thought that it was about time I wrote a note about this tea. Even though it has quite a bit of spice in it, the appeal of it tasting like cake convinced me to drink it. I made it with a splash of milk and it’s quite tasty. The first thing I taste is carrot – not real carrot flavor, but something like a sweet vegetable. Actually, the more I sip, the more carrot I get. It fades into the spices next, turning the cup into something a little bit like spice cake. The milk is strong enough to cloud up the heavy spices, but they’re still present and warming. The finish is creamy (due to the milk, I think). It leaves your mouth feeling like you’ve eaten a piece of carrot cake, even though the flavor isn’t explicitly carrot cake. I don’t think that I would like this tea as much if I hadn’t added any milk. It’s strange because I prefer rooibos without any additions, but it seems so appropriate here. This is a very nice dessert tea and really hits the spot tonight!
