Sipping/choking down this tea that AmandaStory shared. I seem to have forgotten how humans drink and got some of this down the wrong pipe! If only there was a point where we outgrew that!
I’ve been so busy lately with running my small business that I haven’t had time to log my tea or take notes while sipping on cups between filling orders, shipping orders, making more product (casting, finishing, soldering, polishing), ordering supplies, updating my website and a slew of other things. It’s also swarming season for bees and I’m on the local beekeeping association’s swarm list. Getting free bees is a very competitive thing, so I have to be glued to my phone to catch the alerts before another beekeeper does. Life is busy and I just want a nap!
Onto the tea! Overleafed this a bit so I didn’t have half a serving left and it’s pretty delicious. I’m getting less of the earthy notes this time and more pumpkin spices with something a little more buttery in the background. I’m not super familiar with snickerdoodles other than a cinnamon association, so it’s hard to tell what part of this is supposed to be snickerdoodle like. The cinnamon/clove action is nice, but not overpowering. I like this, but I’m on the fence on if I’d order it or not. I might have to be in the right mood to buy it and right now I’m trying to hold off on buying more Arthur Dove tea as my cupboard is overflowing and starting to intrude on an adjacent cupboard. Tea priorities and problems. :/
