Celestial Showdown, Round 2


Gingerbread Spice smells nothing like gingerbread. It’s more like the combination of cinnamon and sugar some people put into shakers. Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride is the most dead on smell of the four teas. If you didn’t know better, you’d swear you were balls deep in a bowl of sugar cookie dough.

Winner: Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride

Gingerbread Spice has a nice brown tint to it. Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride is a little cream-ish. Both colors pretty much are accurate portrayals of the cookie counterpart.

Winner: Draw

Much like it smells, Gingerbread Spice tastes nothing like gingerbread. Anyone who knows me or has seen me can probably tell you I know how to eff up a batch of gingerbread cookies. This is the greatest disappointment of the competition. I am a fanatic for ginger snaps and gingerbread. It doesn’t necessarily taste bad, just kind of dull. Meanwhile, Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride completely kills it. This stuff is straight up sugar cookie goodness.

Winner: Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride

The final verdict? In what is no doubt a personal upset, Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride basically pistol whipped Gingerbread Spice on it’s way to the finals.
