drank Creamy Eggnog by Butiki Teas
740 tasting notes

The steeping scent of this is confusing my brain. It smells like eggnog but also delicious! I do not care for eggnog at all. In fact, I despise it. I’ve noticed some people have been saying it doesn’t really taste like eggnog or it’s bang-on eggnog. Mixed opinions. So I had to give it a shot.

It’s definitely creamy. I’m not getting too much of an eggnog taste here. I’m tempted to add the brown sugar recommended to see what happens.

Update: Doing a second steep this afternoon to see what happens. Very similar to the first steep, with less flavour. I get an egg-y taste but not necessarily eggnog. It’s interesting, but I don’t think it’s for me.

Yep, that was pretty much my opinion, too. But I can totally see why other people love it so much, it’s very well done.

That’s my mug!

I love black teas. I pretty well always drink my tea straight. I’m also fond of herbals, but they rarely make my permanent collection. I prefer my tea hot, but occasionally I’ll cold brew.

Oolongs I enjoy, but I’m not generally in the mood for them. I only truly enjoy subtly fruity flavoured greens. Whites have to be pretty amazing (see Butiki’s White Rhino).

Pu’erhs, rooibos (specifically red, I’m more open to green), honeybush, and matés are not my favourite. I tend to avoid them altogether unless others find them so amazing it would be a travesty to not at least try.

Likes:
Coconut, creaminess, yogurt, toffee, cacao (true dark chocolate flavour), rhubarb.

Dislikes:
Any smokiness, bergamot, flowers (rose, jasmine, chamomile), hibiscus is hit and miss.
