Had this this morning with some soy creamer and just a hint of sugar. It really does smell like a cookie. Probably the best tea for dessert that I own. Great with milk, but the flavor is mild enough that it tastes great plain, too!

A rich caramel cookie flavored black tea blend with a satisfying full body. Enjoy this one with milk to bring out the sweetness. The sweetness of this tea makes it popular with children, like mom’s cookies right out of the oven.

Blllerrggggggh. Bahhhhh I really didn’t like this one. This is the first tea from Lupicia that I haven’t liked. The smells is nice and interesting and pretty fun, it seems like it would be good.
I tried it with a splash of 2% milk and I just gotta say, it tastes like melted butter – and not in a good way!! It’s very rich and kinda gross, it feels like you’re drinking butter. Not fun. I’m gonna try it again with maybe a lighter steep time or hotter water or something. But I’m pretty sure I hate this one, I’m gonna have to give it away if it’s as gross next time.
Sorry Lupicia, an epic winning streak but finally one tea of yours that I don’t actually just love. Strange! Anyway, I’ll give it another shot and report back if it’s awesome. If it’s gross, I’m totally giving this away. :)
I used 1 tsp per 8oz, (hot) b/c I can’t figure out how many grams.
Smells: Definitely caramel, almost burnt/smoky, probably from the black tea. The scent is even warmer and sweeter as it is steeped.
Taste: Since it’s a black tea, I wasn’t expecting anything really sweet (although I was hoping for a slightly sweet dessert type. It’s a very interesting case with this one; milk didn’t make much of a difference. First thing I can taste is the full black tea, with hint a caramel. Not very sweet, but nothing sweetener can’t fix, if you’re fond of adding. The aftertaste is really something; first I taste the black tea, but it slowly melts away into a pleasant, malty caramel flavor that lingers. I’ve never had anything like it before.
I might buy this again, but I’m really interested in sampling different types of dessert teas and such. I also might steep longer, but I’m afraid of it getting too bitter.
Heeeey, this is kinda tasty. The smell of the dry leaf was so strong I worried about whether it’d taste like a melted Yankee Candle, but it mellowed out and was quite pleasant with cream and sugar. Yes cookie, yes tea. Wouldn’t drink it plain, but it’s a nice dessert.
A Lupicia store recently opened here in Singapore so I went down to have a look. When I asked the manager (who is also the one who brought the brand here) for a recommendation for something that goes well with milk, this was one of her recommendation.
And it was certainly a good one! I first took a sip of it without adding anything, and was surprised by how sweet it was. It certainly goes well with milk, like what the manager said. It smelled sweet like butter cookies, so much so that I was surprised to see almond in the ingredients list.XD It’s currently my favourite tea to drink in the morning!
After trying La Vanille at the longer brew time recommended and not liking it, I decided to do the minimum brew time suggested on this (two minutes) and it came out just lovely. Unlike La Vanille this looks like a loose leaf tea which pleased me. It smells like a cookie – as it should. It is delicious with milk and honey which is no surprise since Lupicia lists it under teas recommended for milk tea preparation (which, in Japan, means sweetened) and the label recommends adding milk as well. It tastes like a caramel cookie and if that doesn’t appeal to you well, we have very dissimilar tastes.
