From Della Terra Teas

Well, I know I love carrot cake, and I love a cup of rooibos. So, why not combine the two? That’s exactly what you have here! Just as you’d expect, all the spices and flavor of a cream cheese iced carrot cake!

Ingredients: Rooibos, spices, carrot bits, flavor

I left this to steep while putting away dishes, and stopped to wonder who brought me a slice of carrot cake. It smells that good, even the cream cheese frosting is there. The spices and flavour are really good too.
Not as strong (maybe a longer steep next time), but that is a carrot cake in my tea mug, and it is fabulous.

My first tea from the Great Canadian Traveling Tea Box! It was so exciting to hear that the box had been delivered, I probably spent the first half hour after I got home from work opening bags and smelling all the different teas. But since it’s a work night I had to limit my choices to caffeine free options and this one caught my interest.

Dry this tea has a very strong scent profile, sweet with a bit of tang that reminds me of cream cheese frosting. I don’t get much in the way of carrot at this point but there are some deeper notes under all the artificial “cake” scent that could be the carrot. I can also detect some of the spices as well which try to break up some of the super sweet notes present in this tea.

The liquor is a deep red-orange and smells of sweet cream cheese icing and cake (a touch artificial.) I get a few carrot notes every once and a while but they got a bit lost in the rest of the aroma. There’s also a film present on the top of the liquid.

Flavor wise, I defiantly get cake when drinking this but not much on the carrot side of things. With the various spices involved it’s almost more of a spice cake than a carrot one; I get definite hits of cinnamon while the rest is a bit muddled but I find that there’s hints of nutmeg and clove. The mouth feel is rich and creamy which complements the cream cheese frosting flavor, though I do find it to be a bit artificial.

An interesting tea and I can see why people like it but like the few DT cake teas that I’ve tried… Its just not for me. If it wasn’t for the “cake” notes I would probably like this more but I just find myself unable to really enjoy the artificial flavoring.

This tea is so good! I made it as a latte and it was very reminiscent of the dessert. As happy as I am with this, I wish I would have made something with caffeine. I am trying my best to write a paper and study for finals tomorrow. Only two more weeks before graduation! Yay!! :-)

Augh, this was incredible. I loved it just plain, but I was having it too late in the day and was going to be up all night visiting the bathroom so I was like: ADD MILK AND BROWN SUGAR, DRINK FASTERRRR and oh, man. Sweet yumminess. This is a keeper. I have 1 more sample here from cavocorax and then I’ll be making a wibbly face and making an order… ;)

(Another Della Terra purchase from the recent sale. I picked up an ounce.)

Oh my goodness, in the bag and while steeping, this tea smells so delicious! I love carrot cake and sniffing the bag was like having the real thing sitting on my counter top. I used about 2.5 teaspoons for my 16 oz steeping mug and added sweetener.

I’ll admit, I was worried about this one. I was kind of expecting it not to live up to my expectations; however, it has impressed me! It tastes like carrot cake (including the cream cheese icing) and it’s caffeine free! One thing though, I really have to savor and drink the tea slowly, otherwise, the 2nd sip kinds of mutes out the first one (if that makes any sense).

In any case, during the next Della Terra sale, I’ll be ordering more of this!

This smells genuinely like carrot cake. And it actually tastes pretty much like it too! Definitely way better than the David’s tea one. I even taste the frosting! I like that this is a rooibos as well. Very good.

This is a really good one! I seriously can’t believe how realistic it tastes (much like Della Terra’s Oatmeal Raisin cookie). I like that it is a bit savory, but I still get the touch of cream cheese frosting and cake sweetness as well. I’m plowing through this one ounce sample!

Another one rescued from languishing in my stash. I think I bought this one about a year ago, and I just never got around to pulling it out. Now’s its chance!

I think it’s fair to say that I’m in love with this one even just having opened the bag. It smells so much like cream cheese icing and rich, spiced cake, it’s ridiculous! It reminds me most at this point of Della Terra’s Pineapple Upside Down Cake – it shares the same “cakey” scent. The thing I like most about the dry mix is actually the tiny caramac chips, although pieces of carrot and orange peel are also readily visible. I think it’s going to be a good one! I gave 1 tsp of leaf 3 minutes in boiling water. No additions. It filled the whole kitchen with the scent of carrot cake; a blissful 3 minute break from work.

Fortunately, I’m not wrong about this being a good one. It’s not often that a flavoured tea lives up to its scent, but this is one that definitely does. The initial flavour is spiced icing, with the cinnamon and orange coming through readily, along with a rich, almost tooth-tingling, sweetness. There’s a cream cheese aspect, too, which adds an almost cool, slightly sour tang right at the end of the sip. The “carrot cake” itself resides mainly in the mid sip, with a pleasant raisin note and a lovely smack of Della Terra “cake” flavouring. It’s a beautiful thing.

This one has a rooibos base, but it’s hard to tell under all of the flavouring. This makes for a delicious dessert tea – and a real dessert replacement, rather than the inspiration for a craving. This is one sample I’ll have no trouble polishing off!

Thanks Ost for the sample. I let it steep for 5 minutes, and it was a little thin. Woodsy, some spice, a little hint of cake flavor every once in a while. Not great, maybe a longer steep would have helped.

I got this in a trade… can’t for the life of me remember who though! Oh well.

So, I’m doing this Fast Metabolism Diet thing which lasts 28 days and has 3 phases per week. I do alright in the first and third phase, but the second phase kills me every time since you’re basically reduced to eating protein and veggies. Lots of protein. Lots of veggies. And whenever I get to phase two my sweet tooth goes bonkers and craves EVERYTHING bad for me: chocolate, cake, pastries, gummy candy, more chocolate, brownies, cupcakes… you get the idea.

Technically I’m not supposed to even drink herbal tea… only water—bummer! Too bad I’m bending the rules and guzzling this tea like there’s no tomorrow since I’ll be doomed to fail if I don’t! There’s still two weeks left of the diet… I can do this!

Sweet, delicious carrot cake tea… how I wish I could have carrot cake now. Alas, this tea will have to suffice.
