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.
“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...” Read full tasting note
“This tea is normally pretty amazing, but I think I accidently underleafed it. Also, it’s a rooibos. I probably should have steeped it longer. I’m sorry Carrot Cake. I know you can be better than...” Read full tasting note
“Another one from the GCTTB Not sure about this one. It’s more spiced cream cheese icing than actual carrot cake. Not even sure about the spices – it’s not bad, but it’s not good either. Just...” Read full tasting note
“I’m so sleepy tonight! My workplace went curling for our social event, and I am just beat. It was fun, but I’m sleepy now lol. So I made a cup of this before bed. It smells very sweet and icing...” Read full tasting note
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!

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.
Flavors: Cake, Carrot, Maple, Spices
Yes, I still have some of this. Who knows how long it’s been since I last ordered from Della Terra…it’s been awhile! I’m pining for Fall today, so I broke this one out of my nicely organized cupboard. It’s sweet and cake-like. I ate it with a cookie! ;) I got my TeaTime mag in the mail, but the front cover got all crushed and torn. What the heck?! Makes me sad, because it’s an issue all about Fall! :( I love Fall. It’s still hot here, but I’m counting down the days until I can drink some new Fall teas and go buy apple goodies at Apple Hill! It’ll be here soon!!!
As soon as I smelled this tea, I knew I was going to set it aside in my “to sample” pile. I normally don’t eat carrot cake, but the cinnamony, nutmeggy, cream-cheesy goodness of this was almost impossible to ignore. And since I’m still working on projects in the basement, this seemed like the perfect dessert pick-me-up.
The flavours are not as strong in the cup as I expected, but I have to admit I’m not sure how I would have felt about a big ol’ mug of cream cheese frosting. This smells sooo good though, and I added some agave nectar to amp up the sweetness, which I think was a good call. Unfortunately, it appears that Della Terra no longer offers this blend, so I’m glad I got a chance to try it before it disappeared!
Is that a raisin in my tea!??! Ahhaha ahh well, anything to get the best flavours out!!
Oh, it smells very rooibos-y, but sweet and caramel-y. This reminds me a whole lot of Oh, Canada from DT! Good tea. Not so much carrot cake, but more like rooibos with a touch of cinnamon and caramel :)
Thank you VariaTEA for sending me a sample of this. It was lovely :)
I haven’t been drinking a whole lot of tea lately mainly because Disney :( But I try to drink as much as I can on my days off!!
Got this as a sample from my last DTT order. This is pretty woodsy, not as strong as Tea Guy’s Carrot Cake. Definitely taste the spice of the cake part, just not really the icing which, of course, is the best part of a carrot cake. So a bit disappointing.
Not a terrible tea, but Tea Guys definitely made a much better blend of tea on this one.
Well i didn’t drink much of this or my other cup of tea tonight…somuch for getting through some of the teas in the box. This one taste like generic della terra “cake” tea. similar to upside down pineapple… there is not much in the way of spicy carrot cake, creamcheese icing sort of thing. This just reminds me of a rooibos upside down cake. meh. glad to try it though.
