I have whined at DAVIDsTEA about Cookie Dough being discontinued a fair bit over the years. They will bring back and old tea and I am all “what about Cookie Dough?” instead of just enjoying the tea. So I was super happy when I saw it included in the 10th Anniversary collection. DAVIDsTEA Cookie Dough is one of the first teas I remember stocking up on and one of the few white teas I truly love enough to pay the higher price tags.
It has been a while since I posted a tea review and now I have four of the DAVIDsTEA dessert type throwback teas plus the new teas coming out today to post. So expect a lot of tea this week!
DAVIDsTEA Cookie Dough Ingredients and Steeping Instructions
Let me start by saying that Cookie Dough is not your usual fragile white tea. You brew it at 85-90℃ for about 5 minutes. Most white teas I do cooler and for less than a minute. If you avoid white teas because of the steeping issues, this is not one of those teas.
DAVIDsTEA Cookie Dough Ingredients: White tea, cocoa peel and nibs, almonds, walnuts, caramel pieces (condensed skimmed milk, sugar, molasses, butterfat, sorbitol, mono-and diglycerides), chocolate chips (sugar, cocoa beans, cocoa butter, cacao powder, soy lecithin), artificial flavouring.
DAVIDsTEA Cookie Dough Tea Review
I will admit that I was a little worried at the first sip that Cookie Dough tea would not be as good as I remembered. There was that “really, steep that high for that long?” thought. But it is wonderful. A little sweetener and it really does taste like cookie dough.
The little tin holds 16g. It is a fairly light tea and the closeup of the tin above is after I used 1.5 Perfect Spoons for a drink. It is all gone now of course! I got 4 drinks out of the mini tin, but they were all lattes so I use a little more. Good as it is a little more expensive than the rest of the 10th Anniversary collection at $10.98 for 50g.
DAVIDsTEA Cookie Dough Latte Review & Steeping Instructions.
A hot latte is the way to enjoy DAVIDsTEA Cookie Dough for me. The creaminess of the milk really brings out the flavour. Steep around 3 perfect spoons in 10oz for 5 minutes for a 16oz mug. I did a little over 1.5PS for my Perfect mug with a touch of sweetener. Add foamed milk and enjoy the creamy cookie flavour. And yes, it is in a Christmas mug because it feels like Christmas in August having Cookie Dough back and I love this mug.
