drank Creamy Eggnog by Butiki Teas
689 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.

Bio

Lover of tea, animals, the ocean (http://eastcoastbest.tumblr.com/), science, travel, and all things summer.

That’s my mug! I may have a slight love of Star Trek.

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 I’m working on at a snail’s pace, but so far I’m not loving them. Rooibos/honeybush have to be well hidden for me to enjoy them. Mates and are not for me at all.

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

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