drank Cookie by Lupicia
33 tasting notes

I’m finally starting to work my way through the insane amount of tea I bought, received as gifts and got in tea trades over the last few years. I sorted all my teas by type, and decided on a black tea tonight. Rummaging through the drawer, I found this one, and my decision was made.
I was not overwhelmed by a cookie smell, but that may be because it has been in a plastic bag, in a drawer with a bunch of other teas in plastic bags for the last year or so. Needless to say, none of them are smelling particularly amazing at this point. Fresh stuff may have a better smell, I’m not sure.
Brewed though, it smelled delicious. I would not say quite like a cookie, but maybe like a warm biscotti. I inhaled its delicious scent for a bit before tasting.
The taste was a bit mild, but I knew some sweetness would really bring out the underlying flavors in the tea. I was going to go with a splash of milk and some brown sugar, only to realize I had no milk. I did have sweetened condensed milk, so I put a teaspoon of that in. It did the trick. It tastes a bit like a sugar cookie dipped in warm milk.
I think next cup I am going to try with some full fat coconut milk and brown sugar.

I am on a quest to try 175 teas in the next 366 days (yay leap year!) and review them all on steepster as well as in my blog. If you would like to help me out by sending a sample or two, send me a message!

My Ratings:
90-100 My Favorites! Keep in cupboard always.
70-89 Pretty Good! Would not mind drinking, would not mind having
40-69 Various levels of drinkable, would not buy again, but if it was given to me, I’d accept it.
20-39 Might be able to choke it down, many shortcomings, trade it away!
1-19 Gross. Pour it down the sink. Flush it. Give it away. Just get rid of it.
