Smells delicious, but tastes like nothing. Tried double-bagging, steeping longer, adding extra sweetener, but still a barely-there flavor. I wish it tasted as good as it smells, like actual cookies with vanilla and sugar. Apparently this is a revised recipe, I would have loved to have tried the original.
Really wasn’t a big fan of the flavor at all, which is too bad =/
I really wanted to like it. Nothing about it conveyed sugar cookie to me….
Definitely not the worst tea I’ve had. I think I might’ve built it up in my mind when buying it, and I know many others love this tea. The flavor was really just not for me.
Definitely try it for yourself, though.
Tonight I put two bags of this in boiling water for six minutes and it was a very good decision. I could really taste the buttery cookie flavor. I wouldn’t say this is a “sugar cookie,” but it’s definitely a butter cookie taste, like a simpler version of DavidsTea’s Cookie Dough. No chocolate, no nuts. Just a smooth cookie flavor with a small orange aftertaste. I’m looking forward to buying another box of this at holiday time.
This is tea is kind of hit and miss, but once you figure out how you like it, it’s a great (also cheap) dessert tea. At first I only steeped it for 5 minutes and all I tasted was orange and hot water. But once I got up to about 10 minutes it started to have some more flavor. This is one you’ve gotta let sit for a good while. It smells almost exactly like cookies, which can make the tea, which is pretty light, disappointing. However, I added a splash of almond milk and a generous amount of sugar and it was perfect. Give it a few tries and I think you’ll come around to liking it.
This tea wasn’t what I thought it would be. I can taste the sugar cookie in it, but just not like I imagined. My favorite cookies are sugar cookies, so maybe that’s why I was disappointed. I can’t place the exact flavor, but it just didn’t have that sweetness I expected. I think this tea just didn’t hit me the way I wanted, because my boyfriend loves this tea…so he now has a new tea in his collection. Maybe it’s one of those you like it or hate it teas.
