NoteIf you are comparing this to our “Cookie Dough” tea, this one has a creamier flavor and more flower petals. It is prettier in appearance, but does not have as much “cookie” flavor.
One way to serve “Cookies and Cream” flavored tea would be to have it alongside chocolate sandwich cookies. However, this tea really has a delicate flavor, like some sort of creamy confectionary, which could get lost in a heavy snack like sandwich cookies.
A better idea would be something lighter and more refreshing, like perhaps waffles with just a little butter and syrup. The syrup would pick up the notes of maple in the tea.
If you wanted to go even lighter, you might try cucumber sandwiches: a light finger-food consisting of thinly-sliced cucumbers, bread, mayonnaise and/or cream cheese. Look up different recipes to find one you like. They are suitably creamy without being overwhelming in taste. The combination would complement this tea.
Jasmine and rose are both associated with physical passion. They bring arousal as well as happiness. Therefore, inhaling the steam of this tea may “put you in the mood”… or perhaps just a better mood!
Chocolate, jasmine, and rose are all ingredients symbolic of passion and love. Therefore, all love deities would appreciate a tribute of this tea, and sipping on this tea will evoke those feelings, or summon forth someone who will fulfill those needs (depending on your intent while sipping). Furthermore, maple and honey are both associated with sweetness of character (both in personality and taste). Combine those two concepts: sipping this tea while focusing on both may help you be (or bring about!) a sweet-natured lover.
In addition, honey and maple were both treats given to honor the Old Gods. So were jasmine and rose. That is why you can leave some of this tea out as a noble tribute to please your Angels, Protectors, Ancestors, or What-Have-You. They will enjoy it greatly!
