I had to actually buy this from a place in the States because this particual CS tea never showed up in my local stores. They were selling all the other holidays teas but not this one, oddly enough.

The smell…oh my god, the smell! The teabags smell like cookie batter that just had a bunch of fresh citrus zest grated into it – it made me want to eat the teabag instead of steep it! Then, when the water was added, it got even better, turning into the smell of just-baked sugar cookies, fresh out of the oven.

The flavour starts off tasting lightly citrusy and I got worried that that was going to be all there was to it, but then the sweet, sugar cookie goodness kicked in. I can literally taste the buttery, crumbly texture that you get when you take a bite of a cookie. This could easily become an addiction!

Mmmm…I still haven’t seen this one in my local stores. Maybe it is out of season now. :(

@Lena, it disappeared from my shelves within the week after Christmas, so I think it’s definitely gone for the season. Should reappear in late November or so.. :(

Ricky

Umm…. now I want some!

@Ricky: Hey, I just sent you a bunch of stuff, you greedy-guts! ;-P

@LENA: I can spare a few bags if you want to trade – just PM me.

Ricky

Hahah, I must of missed it when I raided your cupboard =P. I told you, you had way too much tea. I should have just told you to send me everything =P

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
