From T Kettle

Smooth like butter with hints of ginger and cinnamon. Brings back memories of my mother’s specialty – right down to the toppings.

Nothing beats a slice of warm carrot cake, smooth as silk with a hint of cinnamon and a zip of ginger zing. Skip the baking and dive right into a cup of this utterly buttery blend of carrot, apple, and cocoa bean. All the taste, none of the calories.

Rooibos, Carrot, Apple, Cocoa beans, Cinnamon, Ginger, Liorice, Natural flavors.

Several years back it used to be a dream of mine to find the perfect carrot cake tea but I’ve since given up on that goal and realized that I just don’t think that I’m ever going to be satisfied with one…

I didn’t much like this tea, and that’s not surprising as the ingredients list almost totally mirrors DT’s Carrot Cupcake blend and I don’t much like that tea either. Overall, I think the flavours in this tea are a little bit lighter/less dense and the tea tastes less spiced overall. That’s a mixed trade off for me – I think a good carrot cake profile should be dense (because a good carrot cake is something heavier and moist, not airy/fluffy IMO) but I did like that there was less spice to this blend. I think DT’s blend is a little too focused on the spice, not enough on the carrot. Ironically, I taste more of the sweet and earthy carrot in this blend but carrot is the second ingredient in this blend and the first in the DT blend. I suppose we don’t really know which blend is using more carrot because we only know the placement in the ingredient list (which is indexed by weight) but not the actual percentage of the carrot in the blend as a whole. That’s sort of a funny thing to think about…

Maybe one of the things that’s holding me back is the licorice – it’s in both blend, and I simply just don’t enjoy the taste of licorice root. Or ginger. There’s less spice overall, but more distinct ginger IMO. So many things that just aren’t my jam, haha. I guess my overall conclusion is that if you want more of a carrot tasting Carrot Cake this might be better, but DT’s blend is richer and has more spice if that’s more what you want.

I want neither, I seems.
