drank Cookie Dough by DAVIDsTEA
64 tasting notes

I was so excited when I received more samples in the mail! The first one I decided to try was Cookie Dough, as this one intrigued me. I decided to wait until I worked on my never-ending barrage of essays for this semester. On a positive note: we’re finally on week 10 and there are only 15 weeks! I’m starting to see the light! :D Anyhow, onto the tea!

I do not smell cookie dough in the dry leaves, but I knew it would be different when brewed. Now this is where it gets strange. I like the taste, but the smell is a bit off-putting. I don’t know why, but every time I take a sip, the smell of the tea is pretty astringent. Maybe it’s just me? I am liking this tea now that it has cooled down considerably. The taste is finally more like cookie dough. That said, I am not getting many, if any, chocolate notes. I’m okay with this though.

At the moment I am on the fence about this tea. I want to like it more than I do! Maybe my expectations were too high. I am going to finish out this sample and see how it goes. Thank you shakirah1984 for this generous sample!

Hello there! I’m Allie and I am no longer a Psychology undergraduate student! At this stage, I am trying to find a job and prep for the ever so fun process of applying to graduate programs. Wish me luck!

When I originally joined Steepster, I was trying to kick my coffee habit. This brought me into a love of tea. Even though I now drink both in moderation, I seem to go through coffee and tea phases. While I love coffee, tea is almost more fun. There are so many different kinds and blends to choose from! I tend to gravitate toward sweet and dessert-type teas, due to eliminating all sugar and grain from my diet nearly four years ago. I enjoy all types of tea though! The only types that tend to be hit or miss are green and pu-erh blends thus far. Otherwise I am still open to trying nearly anything!
