Oh my goodness, they actually hit it spot on. This tastes exactly like what it says: buttery flour, slightly caramelized sugar, and a generous dash of vanilla. When I’m at the end of my Weight Watchers points for the day and absolutely craving something I just can’t have, I think I have found a solution. Cookies without the guilt. Awesome!

I am really proud of the pictures for this one! You can see them here:

I wonder what I am doing wrong because this tastes like crackers to me and I had such high hopes for it.

Huh. Well, I have noticed that with their teas I need to stay very close to the 1 teabag/8oz ratio, and I did use 1-1/2tsp raw sugar per 8oz as well.

I tried adding sweetner although that made it taste like a sweetened cracker. I am thinking that I might try it with a bit of vanilla to perk up some of the cookie flavors.

Good luck!

Feel free to browse my cupboard if you’re interested in swapping, but all the mate and pu-erh in our household is my husband’s.

For swapping purposes, please note the apple allergy. Thank you!

I tried to limit my cupboard to teas that were 1oz or larger, but that was a gorgeous failure in terms of swap communication. It’s all going back up.


Okay, I just feel wrong trying to grade things without a rubric – it’s too inconsistent! So, here is the grading breakdown:

0-50: Dump it!
50-60: I might finish the cup
60-70: Possibly finish the pot
70-80: I may keep this on hand
80-90: Cupboard space guaranteed
90-100: Poetry may be involved!
