drank Cookie Dough by DAVIDsTEA
1195 tasting notes

Can my self-ban on Steepster not include weekends? I think so.

I really did not enjoy this today AT ALL. The walnut got me, it just made the tea taste off. I went with the white tea setting on my kettle (10 below what I used the first time) but I have no idea how long I steeped it the first time… 6 min scares me for a white tea.

This was really good otherwise but since right now I trust Davidstea as far as I can throw the company, I’m not sure how I feel about this one. There are a couple from this Winter collection (see: cocomint cream) I’d like to have a bit more of but they are really making it difficult right now to know exactly what’ll be around and what won’t.

I agree momo! I have been one of the peeps on facebook challenging them on their shiftiness. I hope everything gets cleared up soon, I wish they would just come out and say what they are considering getting rid of, not just what is going away/what is already gone.

Seriously, I had to look so far into comments to find Root Beer Float is gone b/c they didn’t even put it in the list they commented. It doesn’t even belong in comments, it belongs as its own post. I’m pretty much done with them at this point, they called me when I wanted them to email me and now I await my parents asking me to pay them the $3 for being called from Canada. I didn’t pick up the next time that’s for sure.

I brew this one at 176 for 2 minutes and it comes out great, maybe I just love it more than is normal :-P

Wow yeah that is seriously messed up. You are lucky you are in the US, with shipping costs going up here I can’t afford to buy from 52 teas/Della Terra very much anymore. The same thing has happened with Perfect Pear, Pom Power, and I have the sneaking suspicion there are more they haven’t told us about yet. Just come out and say all the ones that you are getting rid of, don’t make us guess.
