drank Carrot Cupcake by DAVIDsTEA
14 tasting notes

This is one of the teas I’m keeping in my desk at work for fall/winter. I like that it’s sweet. It’s a good go-to for when I want a snack in the afternoon and am trying to resist all the meeting leftovers that pop up. I brew this longer, about 10 minutes, since it’s herbal and I want the flavors to be strong. There is a LOT of cinnamon in this tea so sometimes I cough (the particles get through my metal filter) but it’s worth it!

This tea is definitely an acquired taste. I can imagine a lot of tea drinkers refusing to take a sip based on the smell alone and would be completely gross out by it, but I really enjoy it.

Flavors: Apple, Carrot, Cinnamon, Cream

195 °F / 90 °C 8 min or more 2 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

I started getting into tea this year because coffee was causing a lot of acid issues, but now I’m converted over to tea! I started with the basics, thinking I preferred my tea plain(mainly because blends I was offered all contained things I dislike or tasted too weak), but in May 2017 a friend brought me into a David’s Tea store and I was bowled over. I’ve been completely off caffeine for 3 months to heal an inflamed GI tract, but now I’m able to drink small amounts of caffiene. I just found Steepster while looking for ways to organize my stash. I can’t wait to rate more teas and read other users ratings!

Likes: STRONG tea, hibiscus, nutty
Dislikes: anything mint, eucalyptus

My loose rating chart:
100-90 – Why am I not drinking this tea right now?!? Definite favorite, buy in mass quantities
75-89 – Loving this tea but not likely to obsess over. It would be good to have this tea on hand and have a cup every once in a while.
60-74 – OK. Wouldn’t keep it in the cupboard, but I would drink it again.
45-59 – If a friend served this I would drink it to be polite, but it’s not really my thing.
Lower than 45 – Um just no. Would not drink it again.
