drank Cookie Dough by DAVIDsTEA
349 tasting notes

I go a little refresh/reload crazy when Steepster gives me the “someone forgot to turn off the kettle” message. “Click …damn…click…damn…click…argh!” whoa…easy there drama queen :P

In my recent trip to David’s Tea I bought a little sample of each of the winter collection teas that were in stock. Sadly some of the collection was not there – sold out I suppose? (When I saw some were missing, I let out a mental “Boooo!” but I filtered that out before it escaped my lips ~ lol). Luckily they had cookie dough. I’ve been so excited to try this one ever since I first heard about it. I’m happy to say that it lives up to the hype that I created in my head…mmm…Delicious! The walnut is an interesting ingredient. If I think “walnut” while I drink it, I can taste it plainly, but if I think cookie dough, the walnut magically melds with the rest of the ingredients and gives that end taste of a cookie.

This tea makes me think of when I baked my first cookie as a child. Yep, I said cookie, as in the singular. I think there was supposed to be enough dough to make a couple dozen cookies, but I was really little so my lack of stirring skills ensured that a good portion was wasted on the floor and the surrounding mixing area. I also sneaked some tastes of the dough before I was caught and told not to eat it, for fear it might make me sick. Finally, I crammed the dough balls so close together that it fused together to form “The Uber-Cookie”. My parents tried to warn me, but eventually gave up. As my friend says, “life lessons- you can’t teach that stuff”. I’m happy to report that my current cookie baking adventures go a lot better. I dump less of the dough on the floor, and I now get actual separate cookies. I must admit, I still occasionally sneak a taste of the dough…mmmm….yummeh!

Haha – I do the same thing! Then I give up and write my review on a word document.

I picked some cookie dough up today! I can’t wait to try it. It sounds so good. The walnuts are really huge though – I had 5 big ones in the whole tin, so I smashed them up so that I’d have a chance of getting some in each cup.

I still end up with the uber-cookie, but… it’s still tasty.

I was going to get the cookie dough… but the girl serving me was new and sort of flustered!

How can one not sneak cookie dough?

Kittenna

Aha, walnut was the nutty taste I was getting! I thought it didn’t quite taste like almond. I should have read the ingredients before trying it, haha.

@cavocorax – I hope you enjoy cookie dough as much as I did. I think smashing the walnuts and mixing it in sounds like a smart move. I only bought a small sample size, and now I wish I bought a bit more.

@Saryn – Awwwww…that’s too bad. I had a new guy also. He kept apologizing for taking a long time, but I reassured him that the reason it took so long was that I ordered such a big variety. Hope you have the chance to try some.

@Ze_Teamaker – I agree, really I think recipes should include this as part of the cookie baking process ~ lol

@Kittenna – you were right with the almond too, it has some of both

I love your tasting notes! I can just imagine you standing in a kitchen with flour everywhere, holding a mixing bowl around which you can barely get your arms… So cute! I want a photo. =P “Yep, I said cookie, as in the singular.” Roffle.

Thanks Nik.

Thankfully I’m a tad tidier in the kitchen now, otherwise I probably would have been banned ~ lol

CHAroma

This was the cutest tasting note ever. I could totally imagine a little kid making a huge mess trying to bake cookies and accidentally making one giant one, LOL!

Thanks CHAroma, I’m glad you enjoyed it

That’s my mug! I’ve never really been a huge fan of Winnie the Pooh, but I like the fact that this mug is more or less clear. Plus, I can’t help but giggle when I say “ewww …I have Pooh on my mug” and people in the room gawk in horror before realizing I’m talking about Winnie. Am I easily amused? heck yeah!

A little something about my interests? – In no particular order, I love tea, makeup, paper crafting (card making), home renovations, and gardening.

As a rule, I tend to drink my tea without adding anything, but if that doesn’t work for me, I indulge in the fact that rules are meant to be broken. Yep! I’m such a rebel…sometimes I even color outside the of lines :P
