Weird that I never reviewed this before! I had definitely received a sample in a swap from someone when I first began this tea journey. I wasn’t super impressed, I remember being disappointed. It was actually one of the first Della Terra Teas I tried and one I’d had high hopes for given the other reviews.
In hindsight I can now recognize that I definitely underleafed that first time around, and that my sample was probably contaminated from sitting in its little baggie in the sample box for so long.
While I wouldn’t go so far as to say I loved this tea on round 2, I definitely enjoyed it more. It still wasn’t super cookie tasting to me but it had more flavour than my first try. I have enough for a nice strong second cup so I don’t intend to skimp on the leaves.
Glad I got a second chance, thanks Dustin!!
ETA forgot to mention that oatmeal raisin cookies are my favorite, because there’s a little old lady who lives inside me. Don’t even try to replace the raisins with chocolate chips, that’s blasphemy! So that being said, you’ll have to excuse my lack of raving over this tea. It’s not a real cookie!
