decide to live (or die)

Tastemaker gold badge
created by: Ari Soren
Revenge with a deathwish. But is that... Cinnamon? Cinnamon-infused ceylon with a sweet caramel kiss and the lightest touch of pipe smoke. An extra scoop of cinnamon and ginger pieces warm up the brew. Seems violent at first, but once steeped, the result is oddly cuddly.

Mink was difficult since I'm used to the Asian style of cinnamon tea, which is very sweet and can only be called tea in the vaguest sense. However, Mink HAD to have a strong cinnamon note. I decided to pair it with my faithful Tiger Eye to add a bit of rounded sweetness in lieu of a creamier note. My image of Mink is him sitting with Tori on his shoulder and a pipe in one hand, so there's just the smallest amount of Lapsang Souchang to add a smoky undertone.
