Tea in cookies
While I was out Christmas shopping some weeks ago, I came across some interesting new tea cookies, and they are "tea cookies" in the most literal sense, since whole tea leaves are in the cookies.
J&M, or Janis and Melanie, makes these Green Tea with Black Cherry tea cookies, bite-size treats in a nice package, kept fresh by the foil bag inside. The flavor is - how do I say this? - "different." They're not horrible, but they're certainly not the best I've ever had either. I was expecting more cherry and less green tea, and the green tea flavor definitely dominates. Perhaps they simply paled in comparison to all the rich, delicious cakes and pies I had over Christmas?
I found this package at Filene's in Atlanta. It was $4.99 (said to retail for $7.50), and I'd love to know if anyone else has tried these cookies. If so, what did you think? Do you like the idea of eating tea leaves in your cookies?
