damn you steepster you ate my note!

I received this in a swap from Jude, I’m not positive this is actually from Simpson & Vail

The dry notes smell cookie like, but only lightly so.
As this steeped I had to sniff around trying to figure out where the baking cookie smell was coming from…. duh, my tea. Even my girls couldn’t believe how much it smelt like actual cookies baking. This is by far the most aromatic tea I’ve ever had.

It’s a little light on taste, only slightly cookie, maybe a bit stale. Could be my steeping I used a little less leaves than usual & kinda forgot about it.
I do believe I have more coming from someone else, so I’ll definitely have to experiment with this one, it’s got so much yummy potential.

ETA: re-tried this, more cookie flavour this time, however still getting the old/stale taste. Still a really great flavour though.

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 45 sec

Hey there — have you tried it again with more leaves? Pretty confident it’s not stale since I bought it in mid-December … and unfortunately just found out that it’s a seasonal tea at Wegman’s so they only have it in for a couple of months and can’t order more :( BTW, the tea dept mgr told me this is a Rishi tea.

I always use lots of leaf, 3 perfect teaspoons full per mug.
Lol oops realize I said I used less leaves, I haven’t re-tries this yet
