If you have not tried Tickled Tea yet, you should! They are a Canadian tea company and unlike many companies, offer an affordable sampler pack where you can choose 6 samples before committing to larger purchases. The second of the six teas in my sampler is Tickled Tea’s Lemon Cookie and this one is definitely one I will be ordering. It has a great flavour and was recommended by a fellow tea lover as worth making a latte with to bring out the cookie creamy flavour. I ended up sharing my latte with Daisy who is a little milk fiend.
Tickled Tea Lemon Cookie Ingredients & Steeping Instructions
Ingredients: Black tea leaves, grated lemon rind, lemon grass, cardamom, almonds, tumeric, natural and artificial flavouring
Steeping Instructions: 1 Rounded teaspoon per cup, boiling water for 5 minutes. I used a DAVIDsTEA Perfect Spoon for a 12 oz cup which I found perfectly flavoured but a little more tea than they recommend.
The size of the pieces vary quite a bit and with a small sample bag, that can change the taste of each cup. Should not be as much of an issue with a larger bag where you can shake it up to mix and get more even ingredients.
Tickled Tea Lemon Cookie Review
The addition of cardamom and tumeric is a little surprising. It was not overly chai like, just a hint of warmness rather than spice. It is very lemony in the loose leaf but not as strong in the cup. Once steeped, it has a sweet lemon cookie taste, just as named. Not too sweet, not too lemon. A nice clean taste with crispness from lemon with a creamy aftertaste. Totally in love with this but am glad it was recommended to me as a latte as it really brings out the nuttier cookie flavour.
Tickled Tea Lemon Cookie Latte and Bonus Daisy Shots
It seems like ages since I had a tea latte. With summer, it seems to be all iced teas lately. There was not enough lemon to curdle the milk. The he creamy taste of a latte really enhances the sweetness and spices in Tickled Tea Lemon Cookie. Even Daisy agrees (she actually doesn’t care what you make a latte from as long as it has milk on top to steal).
See how much milk she had? Greedy little girl!
