I have a confession people of Steepster: I love eggnog flavored things. In fact, I’m not a very big eggnog person, but the winter season always brings me lots of eggnog alternatives which I adore. Buying this tea seemed obvious.
When I open the package, it smells amazing. The bag literally explodes with nutmeg and cream. It’s impressive.
But I do not actually love this tea, and it’s not the blends fault. Recently, I’ve noticed that I cannot come to terms with green tea. Even expensive green teas kind of let me down. I find that they lack a certain amount of weight to me, and that I am off-put by the vegetable aspect of them.
So this is a lovely tea base, but it is not suited for me. The tea is a light yellow color when it brews, and the nutmeg and other eggnog flavors do merge with the base. However, the tea is less flavored than the scent would promise. I think this is a benefit for the tea ultimately, but not necessarily a benefit for me. What I mean by that is that the tea is a nice base, so covering it would be unfortunate, but I’m just not fond of the base.
Anyway, this is a good tea, but it’s not my speed. It rebrews well, though, which is nice. Also it’s very visually appealing.
