The last few weeks I've found myself in sort of a tea funk—nothing really tastes that good. I blame the time of year on my current funk, we're at that weird point in summer where the temperatures are cooling off, but not quite enough for me to pull out my smokey teas or chai and my summer staples (which are mostly fruity) are starting to bore me. I'm hoping with a little time I'll get past this, but since nothing is really sounding good right now I'm going to shake things up a bit this week and review some awesome tea cookies from Adagio.
I've been holding on to these cookies for awhile, they were part of the order I placed last year when Adagio sent me a gift card so I could share a few items with you. I decided it was well past time I tried the cookies I keep sending to my tea loving friends, they've all really enjoyed them (especially the vanilla chai cookies I'll be reviewing today), but I haven't had a chance to try them myself.
Before I get in to my review let me start by saying that I've really been missing out by not buying a bag of these for myself sooner. These cookies are really tasty and in full disclosure I should tell you they're a bit addictive (I may have sat here and eaten most of the bag in one sitting, whoops!) You have three different options for flavors: honey rooibos, white berry, and vanilla chai. When I send these to my friends I usually buy the vanilla chai because you really can't go wrong with spiced cookies and it's a flavor that will appeal to tea lovers and haters alike. The cookies are gently spiced with chai and the texture reminds me of buttery shortbread. Occasionally you'll run across a piece of dried pineapple, which is slightly gummy and doesn't really add to the flavor. I could do without the pineapple in the cookies, it seems like an odd combination to me, but the inclusion doesn't affect my enjoyment enough where I wouldn't order these again (and again and again, did I mention they're addictive?)
I don't know about you, but there have been many days when a small sweet treat with my cup of tea would perk me up and make things a little bit better, so if you're considering an order from Adagio you may want to pick up a package of these as well. I promise you won't regret it.
Would I order this again? Absolutely! These make a great gift for yourself of the tea lover in your life.
