Show Description

All the flavors of a biscochito cookie in a cup - and none of the calories! A staple of the New Mexican holiday season, the biscochito is a flat, crumbly, butter-based cookie livened up with anise seed and cinnamon for a warming bite.

Extra Info:

Did you know that not only does each state in the union have their own representative bird, flower, tree and flag but that there are also a state cookie?! For New Mexico, that's the Biscochito! These spicy, anise-flavored cookies were first introduced to Mexico by Spanish settlers who brought the recipe from Spain; however the biscochito was only declared the official state cookie by the New Mexico Legislature in 1989. State symbols represent the cultural heritage & natural treasures of each state. The trend for state symbols started with a "National Garland of Flowers" created for the 1893 World's Fair in Chicago, made of representative flowers from each state.

Brewing Instructions:

Bring filtered or spring water to 180°F. Add 1 tsp of tea leaves to an 8oz cup. Pour boiling water over the tea leaves and let steep 2-3 minutes.

Ingredients:

  • Green tea, Roasted Green Tea, Roasted Rice, Anise Seeds, Cinnamon, Calendula Petals, Sunflower Petals, Natural Flavors

Wow, I am delighted with this blend. I don't usually go for dessert-flavored tea but I was craving a little taste of home so I took a risk. It's a perfect balance of toasty and spicy, with the green tea blend adding the sweetness and creaminess. I only regret that I didn't order more.

This tea is such a treat! With a splash of milk and dash of sugar it becomes a dessert in its own right. Absolutely lovely!

Wow, really does taste like biscochito. I am on my first cup of this, but I love it. It's a mild tea, hint of a malty flavour, with the spicy overtones (not overbearing) of the cookie.

I bought this because I was intrigued, like biscochitos and green tea. The tea itself doesn't taste bad, but the smell is quite offensive to my nose. Can't describe it well beyond not enjoyable. I've tried it several times now thinking perhaps I brewed it wrong. It doesn't seem this is the tea for me.
