drank Cookie Dough by DAVIDsTEA
3735 tasting notes

When I went to search for this tea I actually typed in “lovelylotus” because she is the one who sent it to me. I guess my sleep deprived brain planned on writing a tasting note about lovelylotus and thanking cookie dough for this sample?? Well, moving on.

Thank you to Lovelylotus for my awesome swap package! I am so glad you sent me so much of this because I haven’t even tried it yet but it smells AMAZING! It smells like fresh baked cookies from the oven and I can’t wait to try it out (just waiting for it to cool a bit – luckily my freezing apartment will take care of that in no time!). I actually thought about this tea all through class today so I was super excited to come home and try it.

SUCCESS! This tea tastes as good as it smells (that is always something I worry about with DAVIDs). I am so glad I have so much of this because I love it!! Thank you so much lovelylotus. I hope you like your teas as much as I have liked mine so far!!

My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, toffee, cookie, cream, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.

Tea Ratings Guide (as of December 10, 2017)
90-100 Teas I NEED on hand at all times
80-89 Teas I want to keep around for a cup every now and then
70-79 Teas I am glad I have around but don’t need more than what’s in my cupboard
60-69 Teas I would not turn down a cup of from a friend but that would probably be enough
50-59 Teas I can see why someone would enjoy but are not for me
Under 50 Teas I really did not like and most likely got dumped
