Every January, as eggnog season ends, my mom panics and buys like 6 cartons of the stuff. Now this would be excessive for a household of eggnog drinkers and yet it is not for a family…it’s all for me. She presents them to me as if they are a gift which is really nice but then I realize I have like two weeks to finish them off or they’ll expire and be thrown out. So, it’s not the healthiest plan but January becomes the month of eggnog latte experiments
This tea is my eggnog latte of the day. I love that the dry mix incorporates real pieces of Andes mints because it imparts a different sort of flavor when compared to the standard chocolate mint teas. This is creamy and sweet and deliciously milk chocolate with an incredible smooth mint flavor. No dark chocolate or harsh peppermint here. Add to that notes of Irish cream and buttery white chocolate and you have a winner. The black tea base gives the blend body so the drink remains decadent and rich. Top it all off with eggnog and milk and you have one really awesome dessert.
Here’s the scoop!
Leaf Type: Black Tea
Where to Buy: The NecessiTeas
We want to commemorate the solemn and depressing end of Girl Scout Cookie season with a tribute tea, the Dirty Girl Scout! We have put a twist on this treat by flavoring black tea with natural flavors of white chocolate and Irish cream then sprinkled a generous amount of organic peppermint into the blend and topped it off with real Andes mint pieces. If you want to get real dirty, add sweetener of choice and a splash of milk.

Enter Steepster.com. This is where I met some incredible tea friends, discovered tea swaps, and learned of so many amazing tea companies. My desire to try all the teas grew and since joining three years ago I have tried over a thousand different teas. I have learned what ingredients I love and I have learned what flavors I don’t like. I determined my go-to brewing method is Western-style with no added milk or sweeteners, though I also enjoy cold brewing, iced teas, teapops, lattes, and smoothies. I have yet to brew gong-fu style but I hope to do so just as soon as I get the proper teaware to do it.
About a year ago, I actually stopped drinking tea but as my stash of over 200 teas started aging I decided I needed to respark my interest. I chose to take a 365 days of tea challenge on Instagram in which I post a new tea picture every day. So far it has been rather successful as I find myself drinking (and buying) more and more tea each day. Plus it enabled CuppaGeek to find me and invite me here to SororiTea Sisters.
