Tea of the Week for December 3, 2018!

One day while browsing the interwebs, I discovered a recipe for a snickerdoodle cocktail. I’m not sure exactly why I would be looking at cocktail recipes because a) I very seldom drink alcoholic beverages – maybe once or twice a year – and; b) because I don’t drink, I don’t have a lot of ingredients to make a cocktail, should I find an intriguing recipe.

But an intriguing recipe for a cocktail is exactly what I did find: snickerdoodle cocktail. In fact, I found a couple of different recipes for a snickerdoodle cocktails. One included butterscotch schnapps and the other included creme de cacao. This tea recipe resembles neither of these recipes, instead, it is a ‘recipe’ of my own creation inspired by the idea of a snickerdoodle cocktail that I call Snickerdoodled Cocktail Black Tea.

I started with a tippy, organic Yunnan Imperial base and added cinnamon, vanilla bean and just a touch of cardamom. Then I added just a touch of rum essence – don’t worry, it’s non-alcoholic.

And let me tell you: this tea is SERIOUSLY delicious!

It has a really pleasant cinnamon tone to it, it’s not a spicy cinnamon – the vanilla softens the cinnamon notes. There’s a sweet and creamy note to the cup. The rum tastes smooth. The cardamom isn’t a particularly strong flavor, instead, it seems to enhance the spice flavor of the cinnamon. There’s a lovely buttery tone to the cup too. A really nice cocktail inspired tea that is perfect when it’s chilly outside.

This is what I like in a black tea. I love making lattes, but I really appreciate a black tea that doesn’t need it. The base is light and tasty. The flavoring is rather light as well, but so are the spices in snickerdoodles, so that’s not a problem. I wouldn’t say the flavor actually matches snickerdoodles, more like a gently spiced tea. I overbrewed it the second time in the hopes of squeezing some more flavor out, and it made it a little bitter, but it was still very drinkable.

This does somehow capture the cookie taste! Yummy and delicious, exactly what I needed yesterday. It’s a lot of cinnamon, as you would expect, but it’s bakery cinnamon, not red-hot candy cinnamon. I can’t quite imagine what the cocktail would taste like, but I enjoyed the tea!
