I’m not rating this as it would lie around 60 somewhere.
Hot. Bottle shaken. I just don’t like the flavour. It’s chemical-ish and there is very little “cookie”, though I do see where one would get that. Makes me sad. I must be defective lol
Anyhow, big thanks to Azzrian for the sample.

Uniquity

We can be defective together. I intend to give it another go, but I had poor results on my first go.

Indigobloom

I think I’ll make a banana smoothie next. Otherwise it may have to be re-homed.

Cedes

I made it into a hot latte with some splenda and its was pretty good, I have it in delicate flavor so maybe thats why its not chemically for me.

Azzrian

wow really? Try mixing it with milk maybe instead of water. Just an idea.

Azzrian

Ah and yes Cedes may be right – a lot of people do NOT like the robust flavorings and I do so that is what I always get for them most part except in flavors like citrus.

CHAroma

Hmmm, this sounds awesome in theory (I loooooove cookies & cream). But now I’m not so sure…If you don’t mind sharing a sample, shoot me a PM with anything from my cupboard you’d like to try.

DaisyChubb

I hear ya – I definitely got that with a few flavours, although I usually go with delicate, at least it’s a good excuse to have a swap! lol

Indigobloom

uhoh. I just ordered a whole bunch of robust flavoured matchas. Eeeps!
Charoma: I can send you the rest of the sample I got from Azzrian! :)
Daisychubb: exactly!! I love swaps, they bring so many sampling opportunities and my cupboard gets to turn over a bit!

Profile

Bio

Let’s see… I’m a tea and workout fanatic, I work in HR, and most of my friends consider me to be an egg. White on the outside, Asian on the inside :)
-from philosophy to food, I love it all
Otherwise, what you see is what you get! I can be very straightforward and yet shy.

Also, I’ve started taking tea sommelier classes and it is an absolute blast! Well, so far I’ve only finished the first out of eight courses, but I am really looking forward to the next one.

Anyhow, if your curious as to how I rate things, this is how I work…

0-25
Like eating dirt, or some other unsanitary indelicacy that mentioning in my profile here would likely get me banned.
I don’t think I’ve found cause to banish a tea to the wasteland yet though so who knows what it’d inspire ;P

25-50
You know that expression “Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater”? I imagine drinking that water would be terrible enough to warrant this rating!
I’d never make my enemy drink this, but perhaps I’d throw it at them. Good thing I don’t have any enemies!

50-70
This is “tea”?? I tried finishing the cup… but my body rejected it. There may be others who enjoy this tea, but it’s beyond me!

70-80
I tried liking it, and I can almost get there! I certainly don’t hate it, but something is holding me back. Allergies? Men in white suits? who knows… certainly not me!

80-90
Lovely tea! Not my all time fave but close. I likely wouldn’t repurchase, but may decide to based on many factors: price, accessibility, whether it fills a “tea gap”, medicinal applications, and how often I crave it.
Every once in awhile I find the sweet spot that bumps these up to 90+. Those are the days I need to buy a lotto ticket!

90-95
Sweet Camellia! this is realllly good tea! Don’t talk to me until I’ve finished my cup…

95-100
Tea of the gods. I would do anything to get my hands on more of this liquid gold!
