Taster’s Review:

I am not really a big fan of eggnog.  I don’t dislike it, it’s just not something that I like well enough to ever really buy when I’m in the supermarket, much less attempt to make from scratch.

But I am really liking this cup of eggnog rooibos tisane from Suffuse!  The flavor is similar to eggnog – and it is sweet, creamy… almost custard-like.

The red rooibos is a perfect base for this blend, because the natural nutty flavor of the rooibos tastes very good with the eggnog flavor.  I am also tasting nutmeg.

Overall, this is a very enjoyable cup.  It’s naturally caffeine free, so it would be a good one to serve around the hearth when your family and friends are celebrating the holidays with you.  I found it to be tasty as a hot beverage – I imagine it would be even better with a splash of rum in there!


Co-Founder/Co-Creator of SororiTea Sisters, Mad Tea Artist at 52Teas
Anne (aka the Mad Tea Artist) has celebrated her 29th birthday for many years now. She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her hubby and her youngest daughter. Her oldest daughter is married and has bestowed Anne with the proud title of "Gramma" and her grandson is about the cutest boy you ever did see.

Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!

Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
