drank Oh Canada! by DAVIDsTEA
3974 tasting notes

Got this as my second eggnog latte as it came recommended by the sales associate when I asked them what would be a good caffeine free option other than Creme Brulee. Also, I had considered this one before and thought the maple would be a nice flavor but worried the rooibos would take over. Luckily, that was not the case as the eggnog covered any base flavors while still highlighting the mapley goodness of the tea.

Pardon my ignorance, but by eggnog latte, you mean making a latte with whatever tea (or coffee) + eggnog instead of the traditional milk?

Sil

Yeah davids is doing those nose if you want in store

Sil

Lol nose.. = now

VariaTEA

It is a combination of any tea, eggnog, AND milk

Fjellrev

Ah, so out of the loop haha. Hmm, I wonder if Salted Caramel would be a good choice.

VariaTEA

I was not a fan of the salted caramel eggnog but to be fair, I didn’t really like the tea much

Fjellrev

I love how you tried that already! Going through their teas in my head, I’m just finding it difficult to think of certain teas that would actually go with eggnog.

VariaTEA

I have had Santa’s Secret, Eggnog, Creme Brulee, Glitter & Gold, Cranberry Pear, Blueberry Jam, Oh Canada (obviously :P), Apple Custard, Maple Sugar, and Vanilla Orchid as an eggnog latte. A friend of mine had Salted Caramel so I tried hers but I just was not a fan.

My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, toffee, cookie, cream, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.

Tea Ratings Guide (as of December 10, 2017)
90-100 Teas I NEED on hand at all times
80-89 Teas I want to keep around for a cup every now and then
70-79 Teas I am glad I have around and can experiment with but probably don’t need more than what’s in my cupboard
60-69 Teas I would not turn down a cup of from a friend but that would probably be enough
50-59 Teas I can see why someone would enjoy but are not for me
Under 50 Teas I really did not like and most likely got dumped
