Tried this a latte and it is pretty tasty. I do get some carrot flavor but it does not remind me of carrot cake. Still a good cuppa tea though.

So, I bought one of DT’s new Tea Presses – after years and years of refusing to buy an iced tea press. Honestly? I still doubt I’ll ever use this one for iced tea – but for hot tea I’ve been finding it pretty convenient to have around, and I like the red colour so much…
I made this one in the tea press the other day, with some milk.
I actually thought this tea was delicious! However, I do have some issues with it too. For starters, despite there being an abundance of carrot in the dry leaf I can’t really taste the carrot? Also, I always get really frustrated when people make carrot cake blends that DON’T also take a stab at the cream cheese frosting – and there’s no frosting in this tea either. Adding milk did add an element of creaminess, that kind of forced the imagery into the cup – but it’s not really the same thing.
That said, the spices are really nicely balanced and warming: in particular I thought that the allspice was a really nice touch. It’s very autumnal in feel, and right now I’m finding myself particularly drawn to more autumnal feeling teas as the weather sort of changes/transitions. Also! The walnut was really pleasant; that note definitely came through in a very nice way and the element of nuttyness with the spices was really relaxing, especially since the walnut adds this really subdued sweetness that I find spicier blends always need to feel put together.
It’ll be interesting to try it again, for sure – just to see if I can find the carrot flavour and make this a real ‘Carrot Cake’ tea and not just a spice cake. Holding off on rating for now, I think.
