First off, apologies to Fusion tea room for taking so long to review this generous sample. I mean to finish the last few off a few weeks back but things went sideways after my paternal grandfather passed away. But here I am with a mug of Carrot Cake in front of me. Honestly, I am worried about this one as I get more cinnamon than I would smell in the dry ‘leaves’. Steeped, the liquor is very dark but really does smell like Carrot Cake once you get past the dry cinnamon smell.

Here goes! First sips are very sweet (candied sugar sweet) then I get a hint of smokey flavour and an aftertaste of cinnamon sugar. Once I am done sipping, it is definitely true to carrot cake taste – not so much in the sip itself but in the lingering tastes. Honestly, this cup is a bit sweeter than I can stand, likely because of the hunks of dried fruit I saw in my infuser. This level of sweetness is a bit much for me so I think I will try it again another time, after checking the components in my infuser!

As it cools it is losing some of that over-bearing sweetness and is more of a cinnamon sugar flavour, with echos of raisins and icing. Still over the top but probably ideal for a dessert or sweet tea lover.


I’ve been thinking about this and according to the ingredients there shouldn’t have been any dried fruit in this tea. I saw what looked like a hunk of dried pineapple with sugar on it. Wondering now what that was…Maybe walnut? That wouldn’t explain the sweetness though.

This smells intoxicating – walnuts and spices. The taste is the same, but with an added sweetness that makes it more cake-y. DELICIOUS!

This is my #5 sample from the TTB-A.
The flavors are very rich & buttery, almost overly so. It’s been years since I had carrot cake, due to my inability to eat Dairy & gluten, so I can’t say for sure if this mimics the taste or not, but it’s spicey & tasty, that’s for sure. I’ve been wanting to try more rooibos blends, mainly to wean myself from drinking caffeine all the way into the evening. My teas of choice tend to be straight whole leaf teas. This TTB is filled with dessert teas of all kinds, including quite a few rooibos blends. The interesting thing is that drinking dessert teas tends to make me want a stout Black tea to have with my ‘dessert’!

I’m loving this Rooibos. Thank you Fusion for satisfying my sweet craving for Carrot Cake in a healthier beverage. It’s a smooth drink with the authentic taste of carrot cake…hints of cinnamon, walnuts & maple in the background? I did add a little organic sugar to brighten it up a bit. It smells great right out of the bag & it brews a great orange-earthy color
This Carrot Cake Rooibos was the 1st reason that attracted me to Fusion Tea Room, but once I saw the selection I was impressed by the variety…I’m now looking forward to all the other selections and trying all the generous samples that were included in my order.

knew that somewhere in my tea bin was a sample of Carrot Cake Rooibos from Fusion Teas that would knock the edge off my cravings for something sweet. I love carrot cake, but I have yet to find a tea that tastes like a liquid version of my favorite treat. I know that is a high bar, but I keep hoping something will live up to my expectations. Unfortunately this tea wasn’t quite what I was looking for. It has some of the right flavors, but it uses the same cake flavoring that many other carrot cake blends use. I find that it tastes more like maple than cake and the overwhelming sweetness masks the flavors of the spices. Since carrot cake is generally heavily spiced I would have expected the cinnamon to play a heavier roll in this blend. Overall, I found this a bit of a letdown in the flavor department, but it did fill my need for something sweet.
