Mastress Alita’s sipdown challenge – December Theme: Holiday Teason Tea #7

My tastebuds must be on point today.  I’m drinking Frank’s version of this rather than Anne’s.  I just love this blend so much.  Maybe I could find a similar base and just add some nutmeg and cinnamon to it… Other holiday teas lately:
Simpson &Vail – Sugar Plum (8)
Angry Tea Room – advent Milk oolong (9) also more flavorful today than I remember…

Ooh, this one sounds good!

Does it capture eggnog or is it tea plus nutmeg? Both would be good!

ashmanra, since this tea is so old now, I had to check my original tasting note that said “tastes as much like eggnog as a tea can”. But really the nutmeg and cinnamon combination that is so reminiscent of eggnog is perfect anyway.

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! Many of my teas have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

I’m always in search of: Hattialli, Qu Hao black, Jin Jun Mei, teas using marshmallow root.

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), turmeric, bee pollen, charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites – cupboard essential
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
50-65 – Okay
1-50 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. (Or as evidenced by the great computer hiatus of 2019, something happened to my computer… I have a dumb phone so can’t access internet on that. As of 12/20/21 my wifi might start getting unreliable.)

Happy sipping!
