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!
