I have had sooooo many different variations of the classic sugar cookie over the years, but this blend is inspired by my favorite: sweet and vanilla-y with just a slight lemony undertone. So yum. Feel free to indulge and add lots of milk to this cup of tea.

I’m not sure what compelled me to order this “Christmas Cookies” fandom sampler from Adagio… I have yet to find a tea from them that I’ve liked enough to actually order, and most of them are extremely underwhelming to me. Oh well, I ordered these, so I might as well try them! This sounded the yummiest out of the bunch, I love a good ol’ sugar cookies, with or without frosting. This tea also has a touch of lemon, which I’ve done in sugar cookie frosting before and found it very tasty. The tea is a mixture of small, generic black leaves, a few pieces of lemon balm, and some sprinkles. Dry scent is quite weak, I can smell the sprinkles more than anything.

The steeped tea does smell rather close to a plain sugar cookie – it has a mild and almost bready dessert aroma. However, I don’t think it really tastes like a sugar cookie. The problem is the base – it’s too strong and too malty to be used in a sugar cookie tea, I would have chosen a white tea perhaps. I can taste the almond and vanilla flavors, but no lemon. Overall, it’s a resounding meh. It could possibly be more cookie-ish if sugar and milk were added.

Remind me to send you The Woman some time if I haven’t already; it’s certainly my favourite Adagio blend and one of (if not her favourite) VariaTEA’s as well. I originally ordered 3 oz. and then reordered that same amount – and she’s ordered it for herself now too. It surprisingly works REALLY well.

I’ll try to remember the next time we swap! :)
