We are on the 7th day of Christmas in the 12 Teas of Christmas and I am having a blast! If you took advantage of this awesome promotion, I’m sure you are just as pleased as I am.
So get your tea pouch out and scratch to your heart’s content and let’s reveal today’s tea of the day. . .
I want to say this tea is a reblend but I can’t say that with 100% certainty. Regardless, this tea was exactly what I needed. It’s been a little stressful with the holidays and a few other things going on, so I was excited to relax with a properly made tea latte for the evening.
Eggnog Lattes are amazing. They give the flavor of the tea such a wonderful texture and feel. I just love it. All you have to do is take eggnog (alcoholic or non-alcoholic), froth the mixture and then top your tea off. Add a dash of cinnamon or whip topping and you have yourself an amazing decadent beverage to relax to.
Costco sells an amazingly rich Eggnog that already has rum in it and every year my hubby and I enjoy a bottle during the holidays. All I had to do was brew up the tea to the pouch specifications while frothing up my eggnog with a touch of almond milk in my Breville Frother. Once everything was ready to go I added the topping to my tea and sat down to enjoy.
The tea itself was delicious ( I did have a cup without the added topping), but combined with the eggnog- this tea became something amazing all together. Rich notes of a black tea contrasted that sweet tang of eggnog and the spices while the marshmallow added a creamy note and sweetness. Seriously amazing and my cup was empty in no time at all.
Like I said I did enjoy this tea on its own. What I found was that the marshmallow wasn’t as strong as I would like and the black tea was a bit more dominating. Probably on a different day, this tea would be exactly spot on because all of the flavors were there but today with the weather the way it is (Cold, Snowy, and Icy), the Eggnog Latte was hitting the spot.
I’m going to take the rest of my pouch and cold brew. I have a feeling this tea will be perfect as a glorious cold brew.
Here is the official description of the tea and the Mad Musings behind the creation. I do not look at the official description until after my review.
Tea Description: I was happy to reblend this tea – not only because it is a fairly simple tea to
reconstruct but also because it’s quite delicious! This tea was released shortly before we took over
52Teas and I think the timing of its release didn’t allow me the time to review it for the SororiTea Sisters
blog before taking over. So this is – I believe – my first time reviewing the tea!
Frank described this tea like this:
I thought it would be fun to pair a rich bold Assam tea with marshmallow root and organic marshmallow
flavors. This is sweet, soothing, and delicious. What I remember liking so much about the original blend – and about this re-blended version as well -is that the natural malty flavors of the Assam paired so nicely with the sweet, fluffy notes of marshmallow. I didn’t stray from the recipe a great deal – because why? The only real difference here is that the Assam I use is from a different supplier – as is the marshmallow root. This tea makes for a delightful breakfast tea – it’s sweet and comforting yet rich and robust with the gusto to get you up and at ’em!
organic ingredients: black tea, marshmallow root & natural flavors.
