Who needs cookies and milk when you can have Cookie and eggnog? Sweet. Creamy. Delicious. Yum.

So long cookie! You will be missed as this is also a Sipdown.


Mmmm I bet this was a great latte!

Used up the last of my leaf for the eggnog latte. This leaf is old but not quite as old as the other leaf I have been using and I definitely had 8 oz of tea for a 24 oz but but it is still too eggnoggy. So I guess my 1:1:1 ratio is not my sweet spot. There is a nice hint of vanilla mint in the mug but alas it is being slightly drowned out by the other flavors in the cup.


Ugh. It can be so hard getting these proportions!

Today I went with a 1:1:1 ratio of eggnog:milk:tea. It is definitely a better combination than the last cup though I still want the tea flavor to be a bit stronger. However, I don’t know if it’s because this is old leaf (perhaps it’s lost some flavor) or if it’s because I didn’t quite have a full 8 oz of tea or simply because I haven’t found the right ratio yet. At least I am on the right track and I’ll be sure to try this again but fix the issues I had with my tea.

With that said, this is still an amazing cup of tea. The root beer is sweet and has a creaminess that blends perfectly with the eggnog and milk.


Funny, I am brewing up some of this as I type. Wasn’t going to put eggnog in it, however, I did notice that mine has lost quite a bit of its flavour when I steeped a cup the other day.

My morning eggnog latte using leaf I have had since December 2013. I am definitely getting the cinnamony cocoa so luckily the flavor hasn’t deteriorated overtime. However, eggnog is still the prominent flavor so I don’t think I quite nailed my proportions yet. Or I have and I just liked having more eggnog flavor last year. Oh well. That just means I’ll have to spend more time playing around with my lattes.

Eggnog is back so let the season of eggnog lattes begin! Alas, for the life of me I can’t find the ratio of eggnog to milk to tea that I used to use. This cup was a little off and for some reason it tasted like bubblegum. Strange…but good.


LOL, figuring out proportions is so hard!

This smells AMAZING alas the drink has a lemon pledge quality as the first taste that hits the tongue is a bitter chemical flavor. Perhaps it will mellow with time but we’ll have I wait and see.


Ew. I hate when they smell good and then taste like medicine or cleaners. :(


this sounds delicious

drank Peanut Butter Cup by DAVIDsTEA

Had this as a latte and though it smelled just like a peanut butter cup, the taste left something to be desired. It was so thin and weirdly earthy that I ended up dumping out most of the cup :(


Oh darn :( sorry it didn’t work out for you!

Vanilla pudding tea can taste like chalky flowers if left to sit for a while :(


Yep, I discovered that one the hard way :(

My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, toffee, cookie, cream, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.
