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!
