Dough it up

One of the best things about winter is baking tons of cookies. Or more specifically, snacking on the cookie dough. But when you don’t have time to fire up the oven and get baking, this deliciously sweet white tea blend is the next best thing. With almonds, walnuts, caramel, brittle and chocolate chips, it’s like brewing up an instant sugar cookie. Only this version is even good for you – it’s the perfect guilt-free treat to get you through the winter. Don’t forget to lick the spoon! Limited edition.

Ingredients: White tea, cocoa peel, almonds, walnuts, cream caramel pieces, roasted cocoa brittle, chocolate chips, artificial flavouring*.

Allergens: Soy, dairy and tree nuts

I used 1.5 David’s Tea Perfect Spoonfuls for my Aqua-ovo.

The first thing that strikes me about the brewed leaf is the scent- it really does have a scent that strongly reminds me of cookie dough and transports me back to times were I have made chocolate chip cookies. I think that it smells like a mixture of vanilla extract and chocolate chips.

There’s an odd bland taste on the sip but this blooms into a very chocolate chip-like flavour. After taste really does taste like cookie dough. I can mildly detect the white tea in this one. I’m not sure if the slight astringency mixes well with the light sweetness and chocolate chip flavour. I usually associate that strong type of flavour with a dark chocolate and thicker cocoa tea. I’m detecting a little bit of nutty taste (from the almonds and walnuts) which compliments the flavour profile. As the tea cools, I am detecting more of the caramel taste coming through from the cream caramel pieces.

Overall, this tea has a nice rounded flavour.

I was able to try a sip of this tea cold at the end of my cup. It was very sweet and chocolatey. This may be a good tea to have iced.

The second infusion (7 minutes) is noticeably dilute in flavour but still carries an overall pleasant taste profile. The cocoa taste is still quite strong at the end of the sip. The sweetness is still present.

Wait, I’m curious – I just looked up “Aqua-ovo.” Are you putting tea in a water filter?

Raritea

Sorry! I always mean to be more specific but I’m always so excited about the tea I forget. I use the AquaOvo Therm-0 to brew my tea (http://www.aquaovo.com/Aquaovo/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=78&Itemid=137&lang=en). I fill it to about 375 ml. I add that in my tasting notes as a reminder for what vessel I used so that I can replicate the preparation for subsequent infusions (or change it as necessary to improve the flavour to my tastes).

Another tea from my Chicago friend’s stash that I got to try today. Such a strange choice for a white tea base! Very very cookie dough like flavor though. I was shocked! I had this unsweetened but with some sugar it would be a hella good desserty treat.

In other news I got to visit my first Adagio tea store and Teavana store. I was impressed with Teavana because I got offered and drank 4 tiny free samples while I was in there! Amazingly enough I purchased nothing from either place. So much fun to visit though! Lots of pretty tea pots :)

Received in a sample swap. Thanks! This stuff was so yum. Tastes like cookie dough without much chocolate and I didn’t miss the chocolate one bit at all. Sampled with my family with a light desert and we all loved it. Steeped for 3 minutes first steep 5 minutes first steep. The chocolate was mildly there first steep and was definitely gone second steep. We actually preferred the second steep and probably should have tried to work in third steep.

I’ll add a comment. My brother who /hates/ spending money and saw the price of this stuff before he had it and commented about how expensive it is compared to the others said he’ll probably be ordering it. It is /that/ good.

Thank you reasoned_melody for my 24g pouch of this tea. Cookie dough is one of my favourites and I have wanted to try this for a while now.

I opened the pouch and took a sniff not really knowing what to expect but I was greeted with a chocolate odour. I take it these cookies are chocolate based then? :) Chocolate chip maybe. The mix looks like your standard white tea (similar to peony) but with a few twigs and delicious sweet extras.

A 7 minute steep is a fairly long time but I am sat here eagerly waiting with what little patience I have. So far I can note the colour is lightly honeyed (yellow and orange) with a chocolatey and somewhat baked essence that is becoming stronger and stronger. It really is like cookie dough but more store bought than home made.

The flavour is interesting at the beginning. It’s creamy and sweet with a touch of being nutty and chocolatey. There is deffinately some sort of baked flavour there (different to an Oolong but also in a way rather similar). The chocolate flavour is more of the cocoa nibs so it resembles a cup of hot chocolate rather than a chocolate bar or real chocolate chips but it helps to sweeten the mixture so it’s not too bad.

I don’t like that this contains artificial flavouring. Surely if you create a blend correctly you will find you don’t need to add artificial extra’s? Butiki do a great job using natural flavours as do many other companies and I imagine it can’t be too difficult as long as you test it properly and have the passion to create.

I’m not so sure I would pick this cup out of a line up either. Put this tea amongst other chocolate based teas and it would be hard to differentiate the differences. Smell would be an easier job than taste I think.

Overall it’s a fairly average tea and I was hoping it would be so much more. Perhaps my standards were too high, as I said cookie dough is one of my favourite foods so perhaps my bar was held too high in advance? Either way this tea was nice but far from extraordinary.

I like this one, but I don’t love it. I had high expectations for it, because lets face it who doesn’t love cookies? But it is not as rich as other dessert teas and for me I don’t think that is a good thing.

It does taste like cookie dough, but to me it pales in comparison to the real thing. I had it as a sample at the store and didn’t like it, but I got some to have at home. In a latte it’s pretty good, but not as good as other dessert teas I’ve had from Davids.

Nooo! I hope I like this one, it seems so delicious!

Sweet Canadian

It tastes like watery cookies to me :( I was sad. And I love sweet teas. My friend liked it though :D

Teavangelical

try steeping it a bit stronger, i found that really helped.

Sweet Canadian

I will try that teavangelical, I’m always worried of oversteeping white teas. But I don’t feel like this one is the same as other whites at davids which go bitter quite easily.

The dry leaf aroma is surprisingly chocolaty. Granted, the ingredients list does mention cocoa in three forms. But this tea is called Cookie Dough, not Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough! So, it still came as a surprise. There was no tea smell or anything recognizably cookie-like. Hmm, here’s hoping the tea tastes good!

The tea itself was comprised of big unbroken white peony leaves, some crushed leaves, a few large stem pieces, and a smattering of chocolate, caramel, and one walnut. The instructions say to brew at boiling for 4-7 minutes. I normally would never submit a white tea to such torture, but I have enough in my sample for several cups. So, I’ll try the first cup their way. Who knows, maybe they actually know what they’re talking about! :P

Oh wow! The brewed tea aroma is spot on raw cookie dough! That’s shocking!! I actually can’t believe it. I hope it comes through in the taste. I’ve often found with DAVIDsTEA blends that the aroma is perfect but the taste is lacking. Okay, enough stalling. Time to drink it!

First sip…wow what an interesting tea. While the tea is in your mouth and for a split second after you swallow, it tastes EXACTLY like cookie dough. Which is awesome! But the aftertaste is almost nothing and after about 1 minute, I get that scratchy feeling at the back of my throat that I got with Ice Cream Cake by DAVIDsTEA.

So, where does that leave this tea? It’s partly a great success. But I hate that itchy scratchy feeling. Whoa, wait a minute! This tea is currently 72% off!!!!!!!! It’s a web special and you have to buy 250g of it, but that’s pretty darn cheap. And if it’s a web special, that could mean that it’s being discontinued never to see again!

Decisions, decisions…okay that’s it. I’m buying it! I had my eye on that new Takeya iced tea pitcher anyway. Gahhhh!!! Why do you do it to me, tea?! I’m so poor. LOL! And by the way, I really enjoy this tea. It might not be a 100, but it’s spot on with what it tried to achieve and it sure beats making my own cookie dough from scratch and eating all those calories.

I was looking at that deal today too. So far I’ve managed to resist it, but only because I have a couple unopened 25 gram pouches of this one. It really is a good deal though…hmmmm…arggh!…must…resist…

Nxtdoor

This is how I ended up with 650 grams of tea. Go ahead and do it! Put it this way… Are you going to buy, in the near future, teas at least similar to these? Maybe you might even want these and you end up purchasing them a couple of weeks/months from now for double the price?

canadianadia

lol – I totally caved. You’re right it’s just too good a deal to pass up

CHAroma

Hahahaha!!! You’re awesome, canadianadia. :D

It’s a bit weak for my tastes. Drinks like chocolate chip cookie dough with lots of chocolate chips. The scent of the dry leaves reminds me of chocolate liquor.

It’s best as a latte as that’s when the nutty ingredients and brittle flavour mix with the dairy to give an overall impression of clumpy, sweet, dough. When I went to visit my parents on the mainland I added some caramel toffee syrup to the latte and ended up giving the cup to my mother. She loved it.

Despite its light flavour, the tea is rich like its namesake. It’s Milky, sweet, nutty, and noticeably chocolate geared. It imitates raw cookie dough very well but I’d rather eat the real thing.

Received this in a swap from reasoned_melody

Wanted to try this for a while, but with no DAVIDsTEA within a bussing distance I had to wait.
The dry leaves smell just like cookie dough…. mmmmmm
This tea is scrumptious. It tastes JUST like cookie dough with chocolate chips. How they do this with the ingredient list is beyond me. So freakin good!

I opened that bag and saw a whole walnut in the bag. That was very intriguing. After trying the popcorn one yesterday, I was pretty excited to try this one. I wasn’t so sure I’d be a Davids fan as I really don’t like Teavana, but I’m really enjoying their stuff. This tea did not disappoint. And I have never liked chocolate in teas. I’ve tried all kinds and I just don’t enjoy that flavor mixed with tea. Maybe I just don’t like chocolate mixed with black tea, who knows? Regardless, I like this one. I brewed this up and sat outside and watched the Big kId, the Little Man, and the Bean go on hikes in the back yard. All was right in the universe for a few minutes.
