Tea #6 from the ’Here’s Hoping’ teabox.
Moment of truth… I don’t like eggnog. Never have. For some strange reason, however, I am very curious about eggnog flavored teas. Maybe it’s my love of vanilla, or maybe it’s the spices, but for whatever reason anytime I can get my hands on a tea that taste like eggnog I have to try it.
This tea definitely smells like eggnog. Lots of sweetness and spice right out of the package. After it steeps the smell reminds me a lot of vanilla chai. The taste is vanilla with a hint of spice and a creaminess that surprised me. I thought I would need to add milk, but I think the tea is good on its own (well, I did add a bit of sugar). I wish the spices were stronger, but even with less spice this is one of the better eggnog teas I have tried. I’ll have to remember to look for it in the store next Christmas.
