Cake for breakfast...or lunch....or dinner!

I honestly never expect teas that claim to taste like sweet desserts to taste like -- well, whatever sweet desserts they are claiming. But Bird & Blend's Carrot Cake proved me wrong, and I couldn't be happier about that. The smell is what grabs you first: spicy and sweet, and then the flavour backs it up. The inclusion of caramelised hazelnut I'm sure is providing just that touch of sweetness that makes it it live up to its cakey name, and even the aftertaste leaves me satisfied enough to not need to grab the real item....at least for a while. ;-) My current favourite treat! A++++++! ...Read more

Carrot cake

Delicious! Absolutely loved it! It smells even better than the actually cake ! Great flavour, really great smell !

Nice light tea but not carroty enough for me

Very pleasant with a light sweet taste but sadly I cannot get the carrot intensity that I would like even using loads of tea and brewing for a long time.

ACTUAL carrot in a carrot cake blend but not as awesome as I'd like.

B&B kindly sent this one along as a free sample with my Boxing Day order. Thanks B&B! I love carrot cake and have tried a plethora of carrot cake teas. The ingredients here seem like they would make for the IDEAL and dreamy carrot cake cup: Rooibos, Cinnamon, caramelised hazelnut, carrot flakes, vanilla pieces, nutmeg, and even pretty purple mallow flowers. I love that B&B actually makes the effort to put actual carrot in this blend. It sounds like the perfect carrot cake blend in my opinion, but the result ends up a little weaker than I’d like. I went with a teaspoon and a half for a mug. Sadly, I think because I’ve tried so darn many blends like this, B&B’s blend is not quite living up to my expectations here. The flavor is fine, but I just expect it to have more flavor than this, especially if I’m using a half teaspoon more. Overall the flavor turns out mildly sweet, spicy, cakey and carroty. But I’m surprised that there isn’t MORE of these notes here.
Steep #1 // 1 1/2 teaspoons for a full mug// 10 minutes after boiling // 3 minute steep
Steep #2 // just boiled // 5+ minute steep

Great flavour, but a little generic

It does taste like carrot cake when you think about it, but could easily be confused with a bunch of other things. Still, the tea in itself is delicious and I'm glad of another rooibos tea that isn't boring!

Delicious!

Great for when you want cake without he guilt of a huge slice!

Light But Delicious!

I haven’t historically been the biggest fan of red rooibos, but I really love Bird & Blend’s Rhubarb & Custard rooibos blend so I ordered a couple others to try. It’s encouraging to see pieces of dried carrot in the packet.

This is a nice, mellow rooibos blend. The spicing is quite light, which I think makes sense for a carrot-cake-inspired tea. There’s cinnamon and just a hint of nutmeg. I do taste the carrot, which is lovely, thought it is very mild. There’s also some sweetness – I’m not sure if it’s from the caramelized nuts or the carrot itself. Either way, it’s light enough that it accents the overall flavor instead of becoming sickly.

Quite yummy. I will say that next time I may overleaf this one a little and steep it longer, as it is very light overall.

Flavors: Carrot, Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Sweet, Wood

Amazing

I like that this one is naturally caffeine free, so it's a winter evening drink for me, I add oat or almond milk to it usually. The flavours are amazing, carrot cake is the perfect description for the mix of flavours and spices.

Decadent cakey tea

A gorgeous cup of tea. The fruity, spiced scents spread through the room as this delectable tea brews. The first sip is followed by a sigh of satisfaction. This really does taste as though you are having a beautiful indulgent slice of carrot cake alongside a perfectly brewed cup of tea.
