In case you didn’t know, I’m from Kentucky, and firmly from the portion that considers itself part of the South. Despite being a Southern oddball when it comes to tea (unsweet and hot, please, not iced and sweetened with enough sugar to fuel a marathon), I’m all about my Southern foods: red velvet cake, fried chicken, fried cornbread, and snickerdoodles. It amazes me how many people have never had a true, honest-to-goodness snickerdoodle, and it amazes me even more when I have to explain to people what one is.
Okay, people, if you want a taste of a true, Southern snickerdoodle: drink this tea. It tastes just like my Aunt Della’s snickerdoodles dipped in your cup of black tea. Cinnamon, vanilla, and black tea meld to form a liquid cookie. The only (very minor) flaw I can find is that I can’t drink this in the evenings because of the caffeine. How about a Snickerdoodle rooibos, Frank? Or maybe red velvet cake honeybush?
