drank Snickerdoodle - Reimagined! by 52teas
2900 tasting notes

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

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

Bio

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, cacti, and exotic plants. I eat a vegan, plant-based diet for moral and environmental reasons (I mention this only because it is relevant to which flavoured teas I drink).

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 sales/exchanges. Message me any time :)

My cupboard is mostly up to date. For a more comprehensive list, see my stash spreadsheet here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-HjWKR3um-xEnj6HC9vMvKXOAyj_bpW5u_2ixEC20-k/edit?usp=sharing
