Oh hello there, Sipdown #2 :)
(88)

I’ve been on a spice high pretty recently and I figured that this tea would be fun! Just plain old cinnamon :)
Dry, definitely smells like cinnamon sticks. Not overbearing like ground cinnamon, just faint and nice. But dang. If I like stick my nose right up to it then it becomes a bit much ahah. Future reminder to not do that.
Steeping, it smells… different. Not much of a good different, but a weird different? Like when I was drinking Oriental Spice not too long ago, it wasn’t what I expected. This one smells more of a processed cinnamon.
Drinking, oh. Oh this is terrible. No no no don’t like this at all. There’s no cinnamon at all, it just tastes like cheapo immitation cinnamon tea. Second sip, I don’t even think this should be considered cinnamon. Imagine a cheap black tea, and adding a bit of cinnamon. Just.. no. I don’t like this tea, not one bit.

Tea rating guide:
100-95: Best thing to ever touch my mouth and I want more. Restocking is a must
94-80: Love this tea. Restock if I can
79-70: Decent tea. Neither love nor hate.
69-60: I won’t be upset when it runs out. I’ll drink it but won’t restock.
59-30: I’ve done whatever I can to like this tea and I’ll finish the cup.
29-10: I’ve done whatever I can to like this tea. It may or may not have gone down the sink…
9-below: Let’s not even hide it. This definitely went down the drain.

I love tea.
I drink it.
I log it.
I have a good time.
Lather, rinse, repeat.

I first discovered my love for tea with jasmine teas because that’s all my mother would buy, so for the longest time, I thought that all teas were jasmine! And then in 4th grade, I watched the tea episode of Good Eats and that’s when the education started! I’d like to blame Alton Brown for starting this obsession because now I only like loose leaf tea.
It wasn’t until my second year of college that I actually expanded my tea taste buds. Special shout out to Cara McGee, Tea Queen for her Adagio Fandom blends. Because of Cara, I actually started drinking blacks, herbals and whites and pretty much everything else in between. I still have a special love for my jasmine though :)
I (try to) drink tea daily. Usually just straight up, no sugar or milk. This little obsession started young and just… kept going, I guess.

also I apologize in advance for lazy tasting notes and horrible grammar in everything I write. I was an avid fandom blogger on tumblr and tumblr talk can get in the way of everything kthxbai
