A little disappointed with this one. It smells amazing, in fact, like a cookie, but because it smells so good the taste was a bit of a let down. It’s not that it tastes bad, it just doesn’t compare to the scent. More or less just a black tea-y tasting tea to me with a bit of cream added. Sometimes I add a few crystals of rock sugar. I actually get more of a caramel taste as the cup cools, but I don’t like lukewarm black tea.

I have some of this on the way, I was a little skeptical about it but curiosity got the best of me!
I know what you mean about the let down part, to me, that’s what happens most of the time with flavoured tea. Just drank their Melon Oolong though, that one is spot on!

Yea, I got hooked in by the reviews for it so I gave it a try. Flavored teas generally work for me, but the hunt for a chocolate tea to replace David’s Teas Chocolate Cake has been a failure. Maybe I have too high of standards.

Bio

After getting sick for the third time within about a three-month period I decided to try and drown it out with tea. I never liked tea growing up, but in my early twenties my taste buds had finally changed enough to find the flavors.

Started with flavored blacks from Teavana (gasp), and now am primarily a white/green tea drinker. I’ve recently fallen in love with matcha.

I love teapots, tea cups, and tea sets, but mainly use my Timolino or Contigo travel mugs because they’re leak-proof and hold the heat for so long! Drinking a cup of tea before it gets cold usually doesn’t happen as I set it down and get distracted with something else only to return to it when it’s (if I’m lucky) lukewarm.
