drank Eggnog Rooibos by 52teas
902 tasting notes

Rachel sent this to me (can you tell which swap box I grabbed when I left town?). I still can’t believe how many of Frank’s great blends I missed before I found out about 52teas!

Okay, let’s just get this out in the open: eggnog is disgusting. Disgusting. Regardless of the amount of liquor that you put in one, it’s gross. I mean, seriously, who drinks raw eggs? But nutmeg, cinnamon, and rooibos are so very intriguing…

Thank heavens this doesn’t taste like eggnog. Instead, it’s a cinnamony, spiced rooibos that’s creamy and not too woodsy. I do think that it’d be good with a bit of milk, but I’m really enjoying it like this and am afraid the milk might ruin the cup.

Okay, I sucked it up and added some milk. It’s very nice this way, more eggnog-like, but not to the point of yuck.

Thanks, Rachel, for sending this my way! I really like it and am a little sad that this is my only pot. Yummy!!

Boiling 8 min or more

I agree- although I do like egg nog shakes and coffee w/ egg nog creamer (not actual egg nog) and rum extract.

Cofftea

I’d be willing to try an egg nog cheesecake black tea blend though!

52teas

So, you are saying that if it tasted the way it was supposed to, it would be awful, but since (apparently) I screwed up, it’s good.

Hmmm.

Cofftea

Haha I’ve had teas like that. Hence why I base my ratings solely on accuracy.

52teas

I’m just teasing.

Jaime

Well, it wouldn’t be “awful” if it tasted like eggnog, just…not appealing to me. Kind of like if you made pickle tea. I’m sure it’d be the best, most perfect pickle tea, but I would never try it.

52teas

LOL. We did have a cucumber melon tea. Actually, I’m waiting on some freeze-dried cucumbers to reblend it.

Jaime

Cucumber melon sounds delicious. Cucumbers are innocent victims of the pickling process.

Cofftea

YAY! I’d love a dill pickle blend!

Jaime – I am glad you enjoyed it. I may be able to stash a bit more away for you if you are needing a future fix.

Bio

My love of tea started in 2001, whilst in an internship in London, England. I shared an office with a lovely man who would make me a cup of tea every morning without asking me if I even wanted it. I drink my tea neat now, because I’ve yet to find the sugar/milk combination that lives up to Pablo’s.

I drink any and all kinds of tea, and love trying new brands/varieties/flavors.

Location

Lexington, Kentucky
