Pulled this as my next nightly herbal to sip down, as this is so old it is still in Bluebird Tea Co. packaging. The fillable teabag steeping in my cup smells lovely; a sugary-sweet cinnamon note, candied nut, apples, and just a slight wiff of nutmeg.
Tastes really lovely. Sweet spices and a lot of honeyed nut notes, which are probably enhanced by the rooibos base. I get a little vanilla but it needs to be stronger, to really get that sort of cream cheese frosting note. The carrot flakes don’t really add that certain rooty flavor you’d get from actual carrot cake, it does have spot on sweetness and spices. I think the next time I’ll make it as a latte with vanilla almond milk, to push the creaminess/vanilla more.
