drank Carrot Cake by Della Terra Teas
819 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 :)

Bio

Hello all, I’m a newly graduated electrical engineer as of 2013 (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’s excellent to take to class in the morning and because I can’t handle coffee! (unless it’s a really good cappuccino or latte haha)

I enjoy a variety of herbal, white, green, oolong and black teas. I have also tried a few pu’erhs and matcha I am a bit sensitive to caffeine, but I find that in moderation I can still indulge in black teas and matcha.

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 recently tried almonds and found out I can eat them, so I have been trying a few teas with them in them.

95+: Absolute favorite, will try to always have it in stock, and when I don’t I pine over it!
90-94: Awesome teas, will probably purchase again a few times
80-89: Very good tea, may restock at some point
70-79: happy to have tried and will gladly finish, but not restock
60-69: not horrible, but not the best, will finish if I have some though
50-59: not a favorite, probably will have a tough time finishing the bag
-50: yuck. I don’t want to have it ever again.

I am happy to say that my caffeine intolerance seems to be subsiding! This is allowing me to try a wider variety of teas :)
