drank Cookie Dough by DAVIDsTEA
536 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!

I thought my profile needed a facelift, so here we go:

My obsession with tea really started around October 2012 when I discovered DavidsTea. Before that, I had the occasional cup and enjoyed going out to afternoon tea with my mom. I was really into An Afternoon to Remember’s creme brulee tea, since they had an afternoon tea place at that time, which has since closed…so sad and I haven’t found a good replacement.

So, I kinda went nuts when I discovered both DavidsTea and Lupicia in the SF mall, and I still frequent them, though my tastes have substantially changed over time from wanting to try all the teas to being a bit more particular.

Once I discovered steepster, literally by looking up reviews of a DavidsTea tea, I was hooked! So many tea companies I never heard of and everything sounding so delicious!

I found I still love dessert teas, like flavored black teas, but I also really enjoy oolong (both green and roasted). I occasionally enjoy flavored rooibos and white teas. I’ve had a rough time with puerh, and still think it tastes like leather. Recently, after having some really amazing teas from Teavivre, I can now say I love unflavored Chinese black teas and green teas.

Favorite tea companies right now include: Teavivre, Golden Moon, Butiki, Lupicia, and DavidsTea.

Just a note: I don’t rate my teas numerically because my iPad doesn’t like the scroll bar. Maybe someday that will change…hint hint, steepster! ;)

P.S. My profile picture is of one of my 2 cats, Holly, who is a little princess but very photogenic, and she loves boxes, including those that bring me tea! :)
