Adventaggedon Day 4: Tea 7/7
This was probably the favourite of the day!
The dry leaf smelled insanely good to me – very sweet and aromatic eggnog aroma but heavy on the sweet cream side of eggnog and lighter on the spices. I felt on the verge of drooling and as this was steeping I kept smelling the little packet that the leaf had been inside.
I brought it with me to the grocery store in a carry travel mug to sip on while picking up some fresh produce and a few festive holiday snacks but I found myself constantly stopping in the aisles to get in a few more sips. It’s a bit artificial tasting but ultimately a pretty spot on eggnog flavour while not sacrificing the distinct taste of the black tea completely. I taste the sweet cream/condensed milk notes a lot and a bit of vanilla, but the most impressive thing is truly just how eggy it tastes! Very yummy!
