drank Creamy Eggnog by Butiki Teas
576 tasting notes

I’m actually unable to drink eggnog. I’m allergic to an enzyme in many dairy products and eggnog is painful for me. I drink the Silk version, but it’s not the same.

So when I saw this at Butiki, and it was on sale, I had to get it!

This has to be one of the best Christmas-type teas ever. It’s so creamy, but not heavy. It’s eggnog-y with a hint a spice (this may be power of suggestion). The flavor is pretty light, which is my only complaint. I bet this would be amazing iced, but there is no way my limited supply will make it to spring so I can try it iced! :)

I wish this could be year round, or part of the permanent Christmas-time collection! (hint hint, nudge nudge) :)

Sil

it is year round…or at least until sales decrease. She might make it go away in the summer she’s said, but it will be back :)

Butiki Teas

^Yep. As long as the sales are enough for me to justify keeping it year round I will. It might be out of stock for a few months in the summer but not sure yet.

KeenTeaThyme

Oh! Sweet! I couldn’t find it the other day, but I’ll keep hunting before my next order. Thanks guys! :)

Last year, I found the most amazing and delicious soy eggnog ever. In a 1L non-refrigerated Tetrapack. Wish I could remember the brand; all I remember is that the packaging had red and white. It was the closest thing to real eggnog I’d ever tried, and with about half the calories! (I can drink eggnog, so the calorie reduction was definitely the more important part for me).

Bio

Hello fellow tea fans!
I’ve been a tea enthusiast for years but just recently started brewing my own. I’ve created some blends, and enjoy researching about new teas. I combined my love of tea and writing to create a tea-devoted blog, Keen Tea Thyme. I have been writing for most of my life and am a former journalist with a degree in Communications and Social Psychology, and a minor in Writing. Journalism is in my blood, so that means I’m inquisitive by nature, will double-check sources and/or get a second opinion as needed, but also fair and balanced in my reviews. If my reviews seem more positive, energetic and have high ratings, it’s because I love tea. :)

If you are a tea company, I’d love to review some your tea! Free samples are always welcome so I can fully enjoy the freshest selections. I’m also open to tea swaps as I always have too many teas on hand to drink & would love to share with other tea enthusiasts! :)

My Simple Rating Scale (as of Feb. 2011)
>50: I’m NOT a fan. I could barely finish the cup, if I even did. I wouldn’t even recommend this to my worst enemy. Not worth my time nor yours.

51-65: Good aroma, good flavor. Just nothing pops to give the tea that special kick. Recommended to try; our tasting palates differ.

66-79: Yes, finally, tea – unique flavor profiles, great aroma & flavor. Recommended to try; our tasting palates differ.

80-99: These are cupboard essentials – delicious, aromatic and perfect everyday teas. Re-steepable (beyond at least one steeping). Highly recommended, fun for all ages.

100: These are my favorites, the ones I would take with me if stranded on a desert island. Beyond Highly Recommended.
