267 Tasting Notes
I bought this one out of sheer curiousity (a cookie flavored tea? and caffeine free?) and because I had a big coupon. I was dubious, to tell the truth. After finishing half of the box, I’ll admit that it’s not a bad tea, and definitely a good dessert substitute. It’s not as sweet as I expected, although the teabags do smell just like a sugar cookie. I let it steep for 5 minutes, and don’t add anything to it. SCSR is not like any other tea I’ve ever tried, and oddly not as disgusting as ‘warm liquid cookie’ sounds to me. It’s just a bit sweet and a bit citrusy. If you’ve ever enjoyed sugar in your tea, it’s actually worth a try.
I really like this chai. It’s great with a little vanilla almond milk and some honey. It’s also great on its own- the combination of whole cardamom pods, vanilla, and rooibos creates a sort of spicey-sweetness that I adore in a good cup of chai. Definitely recommended.
I really like the notes in this. The flavoring is mild, very lightly sweet- maybe not what you’d expect from bourbon, but more of a ‘bourbon vanilla.’ I do wish Chado teas’ rooibos flavors were a bit more strongly flavored, but I don’t dislike any of them, and this might be the best of my last big order. The sweetness definitely takes a back seat to the natural flavor of rooibos. I am oddly finding that the more I drink this, the less impressed I am with it.
