From 52teas

The holidays are winding down, but here’s a way to put a little holiday cheer in your mug any time you like. It’s our Eggnog Rooibos: caffeine free African Rooibos with natural eggnog flavors, real cinnamon and a touch of nutmeg. This is going to make a great nighttime cuppa, even better with a little splash of milk or cream.

Rachel sent this to me (can you tell which swap box I grabbed when I left town?). I still can’t believe how many of Frank’s great blends I missed before I found out about 52teas!

Okay, let’s just get this out in the open: eggnog is disgusting. Disgusting. Regardless of the amount of liquor that you put in one, it’s gross. I mean, seriously, who drinks raw eggs? But nutmeg, cinnamon, and rooibos are so very intriguing…

Thank heavens this doesn’t taste like eggnog. Instead, it’s a cinnamony, spiced rooibos that’s creamy and not too woodsy. I do think that it’d be good with a bit of milk, but I’m really enjoying it like this and am afraid the milk might ruin the cup.

Okay, I sucked it up and added some milk. It’s very nice this way, more eggnog-like, but not to the point of yuck.

Thanks, Rachel, for sending this my way! I really like it and am a little sad that this is my only pot. Yummy!!

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more
Cofftea

I agree- although I do like egg nog shakes and coffee w/ egg nog creamer (not actual egg nog) and rum extract.

Cofftea

I’d be willing to try an egg nog cheesecake black tea blend though!

52teas

So, you are saying that if it tasted the way it was supposed to, it would be awful, but since (apparently) I screwed up, it’s good.

Hmmm.

Cofftea

Haha I’ve had teas like that. Hence why I base my ratings solely on accuracy.

52teas

I’m just teasing.

Jaime

Well, it wouldn’t be “awful” if it tasted like eggnog, just…not appealing to me. Kind of like if you made pickle tea. I’m sure it’d be the best, most perfect pickle tea, but I would never try it.

52teas

LOL. We did have a cucumber melon tea. Actually, I’m waiting on some freeze-dried cucumbers to reblend it.

Jaime

Cucumber melon sounds delicious. Cucumbers are innocent victims of the pickling process.

Cofftea

YAY! I’d love a dill pickle blend!

Jaime – I am glad you enjoyed it. I may be able to stash a bit more away for you if you are needing a future fix.

Thank you Doulton for sending me this tea.

I tasted the cinnamon and nutmeg. The flavors are really light. Unfortunately, I didn’t get an Eggnog flavor, I felt the roobios flavor was strongest then followed by a hint of the cinnamon and nutmeg. I will try other ways to make this and see if it improves in the future.

Okay, the “rooibos, cinnamon, and nutmeg” sounds delicious…and the fact that it doesn’t taste like eggnog makes me want to try it more. Why, oh why, didn’t I find 52teas sooner?

RachanaC (Rachel)-iHeartTeas

If you like I can send some your way the next time we do a swap if you like. Say sometime next month.

Jaime

You’re going to make me do a happy dance again, aren’t you? ;-) Sounds good to me!

RachanaC (Rachel)-iHeartTeas

Great, I figure by then we will both have a new stash of teas :-)

Jaime

Most assuredly!! Also, my local tea haunt sells about 50 Art of Tea blends. I can always get them to make up a few sample bags of ones you’re interested in (I usually don’t keep those on hand, I just drink them in-shop!).

RachanaC (Rachel)-iHeartTeas

What a great idea and so very generous of you. BTW, check out my cupboard and start sending in your requests so I can get a jump start. Otherwise, life gets a hold of me and I just never know where I may end up. :-)

Paul M Tracy

This would be tricky. You’d need some way to get an “eggy/creamy” feel. The cinnamon and nutmeg alone sounds pretty good.

Jaime

Rachel, I understand completely! Please do the same; I’ll start a pile for you!
