This scent of the dried tea is very buttery mixed with fall spices. Yum!

The tea itself is very much the fall spices with a slight creaminess, but very subtle to no rooibos flavour, which is awesome. As the tea cools, more carrot comes forward, which is delightful. The only thing that I wasn’t crazy about was that it was a little cinnamon heavy and Lex said the same. I’m happy I picked up the 20g packet of this one for us to enjoy, but I can’t decide yet if this will be a re-order. Though, I do love rooibos that don’t taste like rooibos…

I smell lots of spices in this! I get the spices when I sip too. I don’t know that I get carrot cake, but it is a descent cup and the rooibos isn’t distracting, which is nice. This is a sipdown and I’ve enjoyed trying it, but won’t repurchase.

Bird & Blend Advent Tea Calendar Day ?? (*Either the 17th or the 18. Opened the teas for both days at the same time this evening and forgot to note which was which. I decided to have this now because it was non caffeinated.

Like just about all rooibos teas this one brewed up very dark. The flavor was pleasant both hot and warm. It’s darned cold in my place tonight so the tea cooled very quickly, When it was cool I tasted the rooibos more strongly. So I enjoyed this one better hot. Not tremendously memorable for me, but a nice cup for before bed. I’d be happy to drink it again, altho I don’t see myself placing an order for it.

Sipping on this currently and it’s very good! It’s a little bit creamy, with a hint of earthy carrot, a smooth warming spice with emphasis on the cinnamon and nutmeg, and a little bit of a nutty undertone. Plus, the rooibos base is complimenting so well! It’s been a good tea evening, and this is the cozy cake topper to it!

Should have drank this alongside the DavidsTea version when I had the chance! Ah well.

Not sure I’m a big fan of this tea; the rooibos isn’t particularly notable, which is always good, but the spice blend is almost a bit perfumey, and doesn’t quite nail carrot cake for me. I actually can’t quite identify what that perfumey flavour I’m tasting is, though it is familiar and makes me think of Christmases past. (It’s not nutmeg or cinnamon – I taste both of those as well.) Since I happened to have finished off my bag from DT quite recently, I believe I can say that I preferred it, as it had spicing more like what I’m used to, as well as bonus icing creaminess. Perhaps British carrot cake spicing is just different?

I know why is this tea my favorite.
It is so easydrinking, mouth-watering and nice.

Cinnamon, carrot, bit woody flavour. Sweet notes of caramlized hazelnuts. All of them are present.

I would like to see some creaminess, but maybe I will try adding cream to it.

I think I would love this tea, I might have to pick some up. Great song, too! Very fitting for myself at the moment as well, I’m trying to write an essay for uni but finding it so hard to focus.

Martin Bednář

Nattie, you have an essay, I do have exam tomorrow and I am writing down the topics.

Nattie

Good luck!!

Where is my Mind is a song that I think I have liked by every artist I’ve heard cover it, but I have to be careful who I choose and when or – like you say – my mind might take off with my heartrate.

Martin Bednář

I wonder what is the cause for that mind taking off. Are we overwhelmed with information, or we can find anything anytime — so it is inflation of information?

Anyway… if you guys wonder, I have passed today exam and got an A (best mark). Tomorrow another exam, completely different topic, but… let’s do the best!

Nattie

Woohoo, congrats!

ashmanra

Hooray for the A, Martin! Woot! Woot!

Martin Bednář

Thank you guys! Today wasn’t that succesful. Better would be: unsuccesful.

Sipdown! (74 | 204)

This one is good, but not quite great IMO.

It’s tasting a bit too medicinal tonight, almost cherry-like, as if there’s some almond flavoring here or something. Otherwise it has nice light spicing, a bit like a spice cake. Not sure why I’m getting such a medicinal taste tonight, as I don’t remember that from past cups…

Either way, not one I feel the need to reorder.

It was one of the first teas I have reordered! Haha. But yup, it took me a little more time to finish 50g pouch than I have thought. It’s fine for me.

Cameron B.

I agree, fine but not great. Plus this last cup was a bit odd ha ha, which didn’t help.

It’s been a few years since I’ve had this tea, so I’m enjoying the chance to try it again. Light spices on a nice rooibos background. Sort of like a milder version of their gingerbread chai. If I really concentrate, I think I can convince myself that there’s some carrot. Mild blend, but it tastes good.

Cameron B.

I just polished my packet off last night. You’re right it’s pleasant but not carrot-y. I’m excited to see what the S&V version is like!

Courtney

I have one cup pf my sample packet I ordered and sadly I’m so over this one haha!

AJRimmer

That’s one of my favorites! I hope you like it!

Martin Bednář

I knew you tried it before. But as I like it as well, I just put that in. I am glad you liked it. This batch wasn’t that carrot forward as mine first though, but tasty nevertheless.

AJRimmer

Yeah when I originally tried it, I rated it a 70, but after this time I decided it deserved to be rated higher!

Martin Bednář

I am glad that another experience was better for you!

I’m sipping all the tea this evening! To be honest, I’m sat at my dining room table waiting for my dinner to cook, and every time I pop into the kitchen to check on it, I keep rummaging about in my tea cupboard, all… “Ooh, I’ll make that one next!”

Can you believe it’s November already? Where has this year gone?! I’m pleased as punch today because I ordered two Christmas presents last night. I am so much a last-minute Christmas shopper, that the fact I’ve ticked two off my list already is filling me with joy! I really want to get all my shopping done this month and enjoy the run up to Christmas for a change. It was all such a rush last year (not helped by moving house at the end of October) and it took a lot of the excitement away. This year, though, I am determined!

Anyway, more tea! I picked Carrot Cake because I haven’t drank this is in a while, and I’m slowly trying to work through my Bird & Blend packets (so I can order more, obviously!) right now. I really, really like this one. It smells absolutely divine! All the comforting, cake-y, delicious aromas I love. I get a gorgeous taste of cake and vanilla, with a sprinkle of cinnamon and nutmeg. I do have to admit that it smells a lot stronger than it tastes. I’ve steeped this for a good ten minutes in the past and still found it tastes weaker than the smell suggests. It’s completely yummy though and a great imitation of carrot cake.

I hope Bird & Blend ships my order soon! There’s a 20g sample pack of this in it! :D

Oooh, I hope it ships soon too! And I hope you enjoy this as much as I do! :)

The second of Bluebird’s Easter collection. I feel like I’m so behind with stuff right now! I made this one up plain at work this morning; just 1 tsp of leaf in boiling water. I thought at first I might want milk with it, but it’s actually just fine – a little woody/dry from the rooibos base, maybe, but nothing I can’t overlook.

I get a lot of cakes notes from this, and it reminds me a little of Bluebird’s Birthday Cake. There’s less vanilla than there is with that one, but it’s the same kind of white cake flavour. The mid sip is sweet and slightly nutty, with just a light touch of cinnamon/nutmeg spice. It’s deliciously creamy, and pretty spot-on carrot cake in my book. I even get a hint of cream cheese icing in the aftertaste, which is a thing I feel like I rarely find in carrot cake tea.

This one’s right up my alley!

It is! I was more impressed than I thought I’d be :)
