An aromatic and delightfully rich rooibos blend, reminiscent of the classic dessert. Carrot, cinnamon, and candied ginger create a warm burst of flavor, while white chocolate nibs enhance the natural sweetness of red rooibos.
We love serving Carrot Cake with a touch of cream—even over ice—it’s absolutely unforgettable.
Grown only in South Africa, Rooibos is a botanical rich in antioxidants, Vitamin C and Vitamin E. Although it is brewed like tea, Rooibos does not actually contain any portion of the tea plant and is often mistakenly referred to as “red tea”. It’s naturally sweet with notes of honey and caramel and contains no caffeine.
South Africans have been drinking Rooibos for centuries, often with milk and sugar, but it is only recently that Rooibos has been consumed so vigorously outside of Africa. Rooibos is becoming increasingly popular in the United States due to its mild flavor and purported health benefits. Not only does it contain a high concentration of antioxidants, but several new scientific studies have linked Rooibos to the relief of allergy symptoms and to helping aid digestion.
Author Alexander McCall Smith’s beloved character Mma Precious Ramotswe, featured in his No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency series, is often described drinking bush tea. Bush tea is another name for Rooibos. The series takes place in Botswana where Rooibos has been popular for generations.
15,000 tons of Roobios are harvested in South Africa every year. Over half of it is destined for export.
We recommend steeping Carrot Cake for 5 minutes at 208°. Because Rooibos does not contain any portion of the tea plant, it is less prone to bitterness and, therefore, difficult to over-steep.
Ingredients: Red Rooibos, Green Rooibos, honeybush, raisins, cinnamon, carrot bits, candied ginger, white chocolate nibs, safflowers, flavoring.
Love this herbal tea! I brew it in cashew milk (simmer 2/3 cup milk and add 2 teaspoons of tea for 6 minutes). It is delicious and comforting. The aroma alone is a pleasure.
LOVE this hot or cold! It’s naturally sweet so I don’t add anything to it. It smells and tastes just like carrot cake! I love that rooibos is so good for you and is caffeine free! Delicious!

So addicted to this tea! It’s delicious hot or cold. I love it over ice when it’s warm out. It’s like having dessert in your tea. It’s my favorite.
Oh my gosh this tea is so good!!! Love it with soy milk or almond milk. My local Tebella is closed for now and I am having withdrawals!!!!!!!!
Perfect tea to satisfy a sweets craving but don’t want the calories. Smells so good too. Can’t wait for our store to reopen!
Smells divine. Has some inherent sweetness although I like to add a pinch or two of rock sugar. Really needs to be paired with a milk of some kind (nut, soy, or good old cow) to bring out the full “pow.” I think I am mildly allergic to something in this blend as I do get a little itching in my nose and the back of my throat with the first few sips. Doesn’t stop me from enjoying it. Caffeine free so a good nighttime tea if you want.
I did enjoy this tea with some milk and it was very tasty but it did feel as if it was missing something.

This tea is truly decadent! If you’re someone who likes raisins in their carrot cake, try using date syrup as a sweetener (it’s a game-changer!).

This tea is amazing, my absolute favorite tea. Slightly sweet but not overly sweet; I don’t like sweetened drinks (e.g., I like my coffee black), so I just add milk and it’s perfect. I have a caffeine-free friend who tried this and could not believe how amazing herbal teas could be!
Delicious tea, decadent, the aroma fills the house. Hot or cold. No sugar needed yet sometimes I add full fat raw milk and a bit of bourbon maple syrup. Is great to give as presents for Easter
