One thing about Ninas rooibos blends is that the base is always present. Now, with that said, there are different kinds of rooibos and while most can be offensive (medicinal/metallic/etc.), theirs is not. Nonetheless, it does distract just a touch from their subtle but lovely flavorings. However, today I found the key to tempering the rooibos…eggnog latte of course :P.
I was a bit hesitant at first because I made this in my latte mug which is 24 oz and Nina’s teas tend to do best in smaller cups but it ended up being awesome. The caramel was rich and decadent. And the cream really shined when paired with the eggnog. The whole cup tasted like liquefied creme brulee which made for a nice way to end the night.
