drank Cookie Dough by DAVIDsTEA
426 tasting notes

Couldn’t resist trying this one. I mean, who can resist cookie dough? The dry leaves didn’t exactly smell like cookie dough, but they did smell sweet. Steeped, the smell is definitely chocolate chip cookie dough! How did they do that! I really wanted to like this one, but it was just too weak for me. It basically tasted like cookie dough flavored water. I haven’t delved too much into white teas, so maybe that’s the problem, but I don’t think I like this one by itself. I was thinking it might be better as a black tea. Maybe blend it with black tea? Some experimenting might be in order!

How long did you infuse it for? I can’t recall for sure, but I feel like the general consensus was that it needed a longer infusion to bring out the flavour (and make sure you don’t underleaf!)

I think I did it for 5 minutes based on the suggested steeping time of 4-7. I’ll try it again with a longer steep time and more leaves!

Bio

I have recently become tea obsessed! I’ve always loved an occasional cup and my mother is a daily tea drinker, but in the last year it has become my favorite thing! Started out by having a cup of black tea in the morning. Loved going for afternoon tea with my mom! Since fully immersing myself in loose leaf tea, I have become nuts for it!

I am now exploring more and more companies, and trying to go beyond my comfort zone of flavored black teas and try more oolong, green and white teas.

My favorite teas are evolving. I love teas from DavidsTea, Lupicia, Harney and Sons, Della Terra Teas, and Butiki!
