Used to be I’d have to drive clear across the state (or at least a good way out of town) to find this fun and frolicky holiday-season-only tea. Couple of places have it locally now and I’m tickled to death.
There are other vanilla/cinnamon teas that may come kinda-sorta close to this one (thinking about Trader Joe’s with the little lemur on the box) but this is my absolute favorite when it comes to accurately catching the egg-sence of eggnog.
Straight up at my desk, but infinitely better with a dollop of evaporated milk.
Another local-store serendipity; this is rarely in stock here!
If you did a side-by side taste test with real bona fide eggnog, I don’t think they’d be very close. Truthfully, this reminds me more of iced sugar cookies. (And what’s wrong with that?) Sweet, pleasant, just a hint of spice, great with milk; and before you know it, there I am staring at an empty tumbler and wishing I’d brought another bag with me.
I found some! I found some! Had to drive clear across the state to do it, but I snagged some in time for Christmas! Sweet and nutmeggy, better with milk. Thank you, Dierberg’s!
