drank Snickerdoodle - Reimagined! by 52teas

Finally a sipdown today. I needed to finish up at least one tea. I had this with a friend and she reported it was her favourite out of those we tried. I enjoyed it, but find it to be finicky (too light in flavour, always tastes washed out, even using more leaf or long steeps). This time I decided to gong fu it…because why not? Yes, I gong fu’d a flavoured black tea. Anyway, it worked out much better. More flavour came out in later steeps (6 total, 2 minutes per steep, 350 mL boiling water). It still wasn’t srong enough for a latte, but I enjoyed the delicious brown sugar and cinnamon flavours.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Spicy, Sugar

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 2 min, 0 sec

See, I adore this one. To me, it is perfect despite my general lack of appreciation of cinnamon.

Ah, I found it hard to make this work too. Good idea trying to gong fu it! I mean, why not.

This is a nice smooth black with a prominent muscatel and sweet wine flavour. The base went very well with the fruity base, and I got some hints of cocoa and malt in there too.

Sipdown. I’ve been slowly clearing out my tea cabinets because I have so many little samples. My caffeine free/decaf tisanes/teas always have a high turnover rate, but my drawer is pretty full right now and I’m happy to clear a bit of space.

Profile

Bio

I think I speak for everyone here when I say tea is one of the greatest luxuries in life.

I am a biochem major hoping for a career in research genetics and evolutionary biology. I love science fiction and spend too much of my time reading comic books. I’m a passionate keeper of spiders and exotic plants. I eat a vegan, plant-based diet for moral and environmental reasons.

I drink mostly flavoured and low caffeine teas/tisanes, but I will try anything twice. As far as pure teas go, I gravitate towards whites, yellows, and jade oolongs. I’m always open for trades and sample sale/exchanges. Message me any time :)

My cupboard on here is not up to date. See my stash here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-HjWKR3um-xEnj6HC9vMvKXOAyj_bpW5u_2ixEC20-k/edit?usp=sharing
