drank Creamy Eggnog by Butiki Teas
588 tasting notes

Can this please exist forever? I don’t even know what I’m smelling and tasting but it’s buttery and creamy and I’m the weirdo over in the corner cubicle alternating between having her nose stuck in a bag of loose tea and a mug glued to her hand in front of her face while creepily inhaling deeply, eyes closed.

If I didn’t trust Butiki Teas I would assume there’s crack in here. It’s. Just. So. Good. I just ordered more because I’m afraid it might vanish forever….but Creamy Eggnog, I can’t quit you!!!

I think my co-workers think I am nuts about my tea based on how much I drink, my strictness with preparation, my desire to smell it, etc.

I’ve been thinking about trying this one but I really despise eggnog. Any chance it doesn’t taste a thing like eggnog haha?

I don’t really find it tastes like eggnog at all! There are none of the spices or the extreme sweetness of eggnog so I bet you’d enjoy it! I love eggnog and this is an amazing tea but it’s not eggnoggy to me :)

Courtney

Thanks!

Ellyn I hear ya, I also have a bit of a reputation at work, I’m not super strict at work with the prep but they seem to refer to me as the tea lady. I have a ridiculous stash in my desk too.

Courtney, no prob! Hope you like it!

Hello!

I love tea. I love my baby daughter, my husband, my dog Wally, Netflix, shopping, and tea. Some other stuff too, but these are the most important!

Some favourites -

Butiki teas in general, I love how the flavours are subtle and not fake tasting and don’t overwhelm the tea base. Trust that I will be dramatically mourning the loss of this company!

Harney and Sons, Teavivre, Whispering Pines and Mariage Freres are some more tea companies I appreciate. Along with Davidstea as it was the ‘gateway drug’ to my tea addiction. Though I’m mostly over it now, I’ve definitely moved on from the artificially flavoured teas and am trying more quality straight teas!

My ultimate goal is to try as many French teas as possible – and to finally find a source in Canada for Mariage Freres so I can buy Wedding Imperial, and Black Orchid for sure.

I would like to try any Taiwanese Assams that exist in the world!

Also continuously on the hunt for Fauchon – La Naissance.

When I rate, it goes like this:

85 -100 = WIN! awesome, I love this and keep it on hand
70 – 85 = pretty darn good but I don’t NEED to own it
55 – 70 = not necessarily terrible but not a tea for me!
30 – 55 = missed the mark as far as I am concerned. Wouldn’t drink it willingly.
0 – 30 = I likely won’t rate this low very often, so if you see it, consider the tea a great big FAIL and probably disgusting.
