I’m not loving this. It’s not the anise for me – in fact, the anise isn’t really coming out strongly. It’s that nutmeggy eggnog aroma – it doesn’t combine well with the tea flavors. I love eggnog, but for me, it just doesn’t combine with bitter flavors – I don’t like it in chocolate or coffee, either.

I think I’d love this if it were a rooibos/honeybush tea.

I’m sure this is a personal thing, because I know there are plenty of people who enjoy things like eggnog lattes and eggnog or nutmeg flavored chocolates.

EDIT: It is growing on me. Perhaps that’s just my body going “hells yeah caffeine,” but I definitely did enjoy the second half of the cup more than the first half.

I used to drink lots of tea but I had to stop drinking caffeine regularly so now I mostly drink herbal tea.
