So, I was really excited to learn about this tea! Cookie Dough iced tea? Yum!
But I was a little skeptical too, because I wondered how well the idea of cookie dough would translate to an iced tea. But if anyone could do it, Frank at Zoomdweebies could do it!
And this is really tasty. It took a few sips of the tea for my palate to get used to the idea that it was drinking cookie dough. But once those flavors developed on my palate, I really found it difficult to stop sipping! I’m on my third glass of this tea now, and it’s almost gone!
It’s sweet and I taste the buttery flavors of the dough. I also taste hints of a brown sugar like sweetness and hints of chocolate. These flavors meld nicely with the brisk flavor of the black tea base.
To brew: I used the hot brew method (I usually do with iced teas that I’m going to be reviewing because I feel that this is the best way to get the flavor from the tea so that I can offer the best and “most accurate” review I can.) I heated 1 quart of water to boiling and then steeped the large tea pouch for 2 minutes. I poured the hot tea into my favorite tea pitcher and then repeated the process, heating another quart of water to boiling and resteeping the pouch for 2 1/2 minutes. Then I combined both quarts of tea in my pitcher and I let the temperature drop to room temperature before stashing it in the fridge.
It is a sweet iced tea so I’d advise caution if you are one who sweetens the whole pitcher of tea as you’re making it. Maybe either go a little lighter on the sweetener or better yet, don’t sweeten it and maybe make a simple sugar syrup to sweeten it if you decide it needs a little something. I didn’t sweeten this at all and it tastes great served unsweetened.
A really yummy iced tea. Now, I’m looking forward to the “hot tea” version of this from 52Teas! (That’s your cue, Frank.)
