This is one of only three or four teas that I have left from the original 30 or so that I had set aside to finish off before moving – I had left a larger quantity for myself (like 50g) so it was probably the biggest bag that I had to finish off, but I’ve made a solid dent in that bag!
With less than 24 hours before I leave Saskatchewan, though, I’m doubting whether or not I’ll have the bag finished off in time. It’s probably going to wind up in my carry on luggage…
This particular cup was an eggnog latte because, after two weeks of trying to find Eggnog at grocery stores in town, I FINALLY found a carton of it! Not surprisingly, to me at least, this makes for a completely DELIGHTFUL eggnog latte! The cinnamon and custard-y notes in the tea are already a perfect compliment to the taste of the sweet, custardy eggnog. The rice notes are very subtle against that almost extreme creamy vanilla/custard/spice profile but they are definitely there. It also has that beautiful rum sort of note that the tea has, and of course we should all know that the best spirit to spike your eggnog with is rum – so it just works. Beautifully.
Friendly reminder that I do not numerically rate DAVIDsTEA blends as I’m currently employed there and it would be an obvious conflict of interest. Any blends you see with numerical ratings were rated prior to my employment there. These reviews are a reflection of my personal thoughts regarding the teas, and not the company’s.
