drank Carrot Cake by Della Terra Teas
969 tasting notes

Second fall Della terra tea tonight! I made this one in a actual cup :) so the dry smell is very carrot cake like, cream cheese frosting included. I steeped for 3 mins 15 s and, well, I’m not sure. Maybe it’s because I had Birthday Cake by davidstea this afternoon (oops didn’t log it lol) but this is reminding me of it. The steeped smell is mapely, and the flavor seems like a watered down version of the davidstea one.. Except the aftertaste is strongly sweet. Lots of cake, no carrot, or spice, or really cream cheese… More like the pineapple upside down cake tea also by Della terra actually. Hmm. Maybe it’s just because I’ve had too many sweet teas today… But not what I was expecting. Lol, i will have a cup another day and see what happens, maybe it’s just me. Oh oh, there, maybe, a hint of carrot halfway through the cup??? Maybe it needs to cool more! I will keep sipping. Not a bad tea tea at least :)

Hello all, I am a happily employed electrical engineer (read:NERD :D), who is a bit obsessed with tea! I discovered loose tea in 2011, DAVIDsTEA in 2012 and it took off from there. I really started drinking/enjoying tea because it was excellent to take to class in the morning and because I can’t handle coffee! (unless it’s a really good cappuccino or latte, or decent decaf haha)

I enjoy a variety of teas – current favorites being ripe and raw pu’erhs, chinese black teas and herbal/green rooibos blends. I also enjoy white, green, and oolong teas, although I tend to drink them more in the warmer months. I have also tried matcha and guayusa, but I don’t drink them too often as I am a bit sensitive to caffeine. As a result I don’t drink black teas as often as I used to, but in moderation I can still enjoy a wide variety of teas.

Oh, and I have a severe peanut allergy and try to avoid most other nuts, just to be safe. Limits my tea choices a bit, but that’s ok. However I have tried almonds and found out I can eat them, so I have been trying a few teas with them in them.
