Design a Tea was offering free samples—perhaps they still are. Today I got mine only a few days after I had requested them. One of my picks was Zabaglione because I love the flavor mixes. It’s difficult to make a good zabaglione and because the dessert requires so much intensive, last-minute cooking and detailed attention, few restaurants seem to offer it. Sometimes it’s called a “Sabayon”.

The ingredients for the Zabaglione are “Koslanda-Dimbulla blend from Sri Lanka” and “All natural flavoring”. My tea revealed a complex unfolding of flavors. As you might expect, the eggnog flavor predominated but there were little rushes of true marzipan, almond, and a general sweet creaminess. The only tea I’ve tried which is similar is, not surprisingly, an eggnog tea by David’s Teas. This one, of course, offers more than the generic eggnog—not that that is not delicious alone.

I drank most of it straight up and then added a soupçon of sugar and milk which enhanced the creamy sweetness.

I’m impressed with Design a Tea. They have a similar concept to Adagio’s, but seem to be smaller and perhaps offer a purer, more organic, and focused product. I plan to order from them after the fantastic tea prOn experience of spending time on their site.

I giggled, because Zabaglione is spelled differently in your tasting note in every spot in which it appears. What a weird word. Until today I didn’t even know what Zabaglione was. How can I have been to Italy so often and not had this? Especially since creme brulee is among my favorite desserts ever?

Learn something new every day! I’m very curious about this company…thanks for the heads-up!

I tried to fix the spelling. I think it must have been my enthusiasm—-I was just humming along and typing far too quickly. A true zabaglione is must better than a creme brulee and must be made at the last moment. They are hard to find. I’ve had a good one in London,a good one in Venice, and a really ersatz fake one in Ohio that tasted like plastic. Even in Italy they are not on the menu as often as I’d like.

It’s a weird word!

I can’t remember ever seeing it on any menu in Italy, which is a tragedy, as it seems like my kind of sweet. To be fair I rarely had room enough left for dessert by the time we were ready to eat it…so I wasn’t often looking. Needless to say though, I will be keeping my eyes peeled from now on.

I’ve had this sample from Design A Tea for a while, and finally got to it. I don’t know exactly what zabaglione is, but I have had strawberry zabaglione from 52teas. This smells a lot like a marzipan tea, and that’s basically the flavor. The roobios medicine taste is hidden pretty well under the marzipany flavor. I’m not sure if it actually tastes like zabaglione, but I do like the flavor! I accidentally let this steep for probably something like seven minutes and it’s still very good.
