drank Carrot Cake by Della Terra Teas
2372 tasting notes

When I first tried this tea I was in love. I thought it was the greatest tea in the world. Now, I can’t find the cream cheese icing I really enjoyed in my first few cups and the rooibos is stronger than I remembered. It is still tasty but not the carrot cake tea I fell in love with.

Funny how our tastes change. Maybe try lowering the temperature next time? I tend to on my Della Terra rooibos blends.

VariaTEA

I tried lowering it a bit but I will try lowering it again. I don’t mind it but something tells me I won’t get through the 4 oz I bought as easily as I anticipated.

Ouch.. 4 oz is a lot if your not liking it. I hope you figure out how to get it to taste how you remembered.

VariaTEA

I like it, just don’t love it like I did when I first had it. Luckily it is caffeine free and since my options in that department are lacking, I am sure I will get through it eventually.

My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, toffee, cookie, cream, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.
