Story Time: Even though my tea budget is non existent at this point I persuaded myself to buy a couple of Sheng cakes from Verdant tea. I got 1 Lao Tong Zhi 2011 Sheng Mini-Cake and 1 Lao Tong Zhi Old Growth 2012 Sheng; also I signed up for the tea club. I picked these because I love spicy,smokey, woody tea’s and old tree ones. I really wanted to also get the Shu Old Comrades 2011 brick, but my tea budget wouldn’t let me……damn. It sounded so awesome too. Hopefully I can convince my mom to go halvesies with me so i can get a regular tea order from them. I need my Zhu Rong and that Yu Lu Yan Cha black sounds interesting!!!
Dear, Bagged Tea companies
Please stop telling people to pour boiling water over tea bags that have Green or White tea in them. Doing so is just wrong and bad, and you should feel bad.
When I saw this tea come through my line at work, I knew I had to try it. I love eggnog, but can’t drink a lot because it is fattening.
I must say I was at first worried how artificial this would taste. I mean it is eggnog flavored tea… I found thought that this tasted pretty good. It wasn’t as artificial or fakey as I thought it would be. It has that same warm malty creamy flavor like eggnog. It made a nice orangey clearish liquor and smelled just like eggnog spices! It was fine plain, but when I added a little Baileys(non-booze) White Spice creamer and it was unreal; though any creamer would work. It was good warm, but became a little bit more richer when it cools. I can see it being a good iced tea.
I would recommend anyone who loves eggnog to give this one a try.
P.S. The back say’s that it is naturally flavored and is a green/black tea mix.
Sweetener: a little under 1TBL in a 16oz mug
Creamer: Not needed but enhances it
