Yes. You are reading the name of this tea correctly. Cookie. This tea smells just like a fresh baked sugar cookie with hints of caramel. I was sticking my nose in the pouch for about a minute straight because I couldn’t believe how much this really did smell like a cookie.
Lupicia is known for their delicious flavored teas especially their green ones. I had heard a lot of hype about this particular blend so I was excited to try it.
Brewed this up-212F-4 minutes. Let it cool for just a moment and took a sip. Yes, this does taste just like a fresh baked cookie. I would love to have tried this tea with just a splash of almond milk to see what other flavors will pop out. It is quite good on its own as well. The black tea is solid and is quite nice in the background and their are notes of maybe cinnamon and even almond thru each sip. Nicely done for a dessert tea. If you are in the market for a dessert tea to curb that 3pm sugar monster that you can’t avoid, try this one.
Saying all of this tho, I’m not a big cookie fan. I like them on occasion but I couldn’t see drinking this tea all the time just because I’d rather have a fruity flavor in my tea than the cookie flavor. What I would love to see is this tea made up into a latte which I might just do tonight when I get home. Now that could give me the wow factor I’ve been looking for.
Tea is a passion that quickly turned into an obsession, very similar to my love for polka dots, the horror genre, and anything that is geeky and fun.I drink all kinds of tea and will try a tea twice to make sure I didn't bumble the first infusion.
Besides SororiTea Sisters, I'm also the blogger and genius (I use that word very loosely) behind CuppaGeek, where I review tea, books, and the horror genre.
