How to Pair Girl Scout Cookies with Tea
Posted by David Kartuzinski
One of the main reasons (and one of the few after such a long winter) to be excited this time of the year is girl scout cookies! This is the season when you see those cute little girls that are full of joy and excitement scout cookies selling girl scout cookies and of course you can’t help but buy a couple boxes each time you run into them. And how can you ignore them anyway, since they taste amazing!!
As with any other kind of cookies, Girl Scout Cookies make a great treat to have with your cup of tea of course! In this www.1001TeaFacts.com post, I will share with you how you can pair your favorite cookies with tea. Whether you like “thin mints”, “samoas” or simply “thanks-a-lots”, there is one cup of tea that will make this guilty little pleasure of yours even more delighful!
How to Pair Girl Scout Cookies with Tea
Tagalongs (Peanut Butter Patties)
Tagalongs are the peanut butter-chocolate person’s paradise. Crunchy cookies topped with peanut butter and dipped in dark chocolate, make you not want to stop devouring them. I think it’s literally impossible to have just one of these. These are some seriously sweet cookies and the best kind of tea with have with those would be something that would neutralize the sweetness. I suggest a cup of spicy ginger or mint tea. Another great choice is a matcha latte!! You MUST try having these with a vegan coconut matcha latte!
Do si Dos (Peanut Butter Sandwich)
Another peanut butter cookie but without the chocolate. This is a lovely one and not as sweet as the tagalongs. These tasty peanut butter patties should be enjoyed with a cup of Earl Grey or a cup of rooibos (try different types of rooibos to find the one you like the most). These two can certainly enhance the cookie’s taste! Make sure you don’t overdo it with the sweetener as you want to taste the cookie and enjoy it fully!
Lemonades & Savanah Smiles
Lemon cookies are irresistible sometimes. Sweet and citrusy, they make the perfect sweet treat with afternoon tea. I find that these cookies go great with ginger tea. Ginger and lemon go handy anyway. The spiciness of the ginger will compliment the flavor of these cookies and make you want to brew another cup just so you have an excuse to open another box! Also these can be successfully combined with a cup of chamomile! These are vegan too so that another reason to have them without feeling too guilty!
This must be the world’s most popular girl scout cookie. Seriously, I don’t think I know of a single person that can say no to one of these. Rich and sweet with chocolate and a refreshing mint flavor, this delicious cookie make the perfect candidate to enjoy with a strongly brewed cup of black tea. A full-bodied Assam (try Assam harmony by adagio teas)or breakfast blends are great tea to combine them with. You can skip the sweetener too as they are sweet enough to break the bitterness!
Shortbread & Thanks-A-Lot
These must be the best cookies to enjoy with tea! So easily you can combine them with any type of tea! Shortbread cookies and tea are a common combination to begin with. I think you can have those with whatever type of tea you like but I personally love them with Earl Grey or with green tea (a Genmaicha would be a great idea). They are not overwhelmingly sweet so you can add a bit of extra sugar to your cup and they are delicate enough to let you enjoy your tea fully as well!
Caramel deLites (Samoas)
These are my personal favorites! I love coconut and I think that this is the perfect combination! Coconut, chocolate and caramel! How heavenly! Ok, agreeably these are some very very sweet cookies so you need to have a tea that will balance the sweetness. I suggest a cup of plain green tea or a bittersweet matcha. The sweetener is absolutely unnecessary!
As most of you may know Girl Scout Cookies have came up with new flavors. I haven’t tried them all to master the art of pairing them with tea. If you did, I would like to know how you like them and how you would combine them with tea.
