From English Tea Store

The Vienna Egg Nog Flavored Black Tea blend from English Tea Store is based on the rum-based versions of the early Americas. Delightfully sweet with notes of caramel and ginger, this blend is delicious on it’s own, or with a splash of real rum.

Eggnog, the popular spiced, milk-based holiday beverage is thought to descend from an ancient European drink called Posset. The drink was made by boiling milk and adding wine or ale, which would cause it to curdle. Spices, typically nutmeg and cinnamon were then added to fill out the flavor.

During the Middle Ages, Posset was generally consumed to as a remedy for the common cold and to ease general bodily aches and pains. By the 13th century, it is said that monks began adding eggs to their Posset, an innovation that would ultimately lead to the creation of Eggnog, centuries later.

During the 18th century, a variation of the drink is thought to have crossed the Atlantic to what were then still British Colonies in the Americas. Initially, cheap Rum from the Caribbean was used to prepare the beverage. After the Revolutionary War however, with their supply of Rum cut off, American’s blending Eggnog with whiskey and bourbon. Around this time it also came to be associated with the holidays, a tradition that continues to this day.

The Vienna Egg Nog Flavored Black Tea is gluten free.

Thank you again, AJRimmer!  Had this a couple days ago…  I’m not sure how any black tea could taste like eggnog, but I guess this isn’t the worst eggnog tea I’ve had?  I’m not even sure of the elusive English Tea Store ingredients, but whatever here DOES kind of mildly taste like eggnog if you mixed it with black tea.  Very odd that it does taste like this.  English Tea Store’s description says it should also have rum flavor?  I can’t tell that’s here at all. But otherwise it’s like a sweet, creamy, mildly spicy flavor… like eggnog.  I don’t hate it!

Sadly, this one didn’t taste special to me. It mostly just tasted like black tea with maybe a bit of flavor, but it wasn’t distinct enough to say what it should have been. I wouldn’t recommend this one because if I’m going to have a plainish black tea, there are so many other choices of better quality.
