Eggnog Chai from 52Teas. . . .A Unique Winter Refreshment!

Full disclosure: up until recently, I’d never had eggnog. (Cue GASP).

On a whim, I picked up some coconut milk eggnog from the grocery store pre-Christmas last year– why, even though I’d never had it and was kinda grossed out by the thought? Who knows. But man, am I glad I did– because you guys, (coconut milk) eggnog is DELISH.

Come this year, I’ve been eggnog latte-ifying any tea I can get my hands on. So when I saw this holiday blend from 52 Teas sitting in my latest samples, you can bet your bottom dollar that the first way I brewed it was as a latte.

Right off the bat, this tea is spicy and malty, with notes of vanilla and large, visible spices in the dry leaf. That signature spicy eggnog flavor perfectly translates to the cup, and it’s strong enough to hold up to a significant amount of steamed eggnog poured on top. In the midst of the stereotypical holiday flavors, this blend stands out as a wonderful holiday treat that would still be delightful all year round. I don’t think this one will last me past December this year, however– I’ve got too many more delicious eggnog chai lattes to make!

Hi there! I'm Mary, a 27-year-old mental health professional living with my fiancé and our quirky kitten in the Midwest! I've loved tea for as long as I can remember-- in fact, I have vivid memory of being four or five in a tea shop and being mesmerized by all the tea flavors and proclaiming that I "was going to be kind of adult who drank tea, not coffee." A stint living (and tea-drinking my way through) London and twenty-some years later, I'm still channeling that sassy four-year-old and loving my tea habit. When I'm not sipping a cuppa, you'll find me reading, doing yoga, traveling, exploring my own city, planning our wedding and experimenting with different healthful and healing foods in my kitchen.
