Next packet of old holiday tea! A 2018 advent calendar reblend.
I’ve never had eggnog, but this tea actually smells close to what I imagine the stuff tastes like… it’s giving me a cream custard sort of aroma, that is a bit nutmeg forward. Brewed, that aroma mostly holds, though there is a sort of roasted quality coming forward on the nose. It smells a bit like a roasted coffee with nutmeg and creamer?
This is really nice! The base is rich, with notes of malt, very dark chocolate, and roasted nuts, and coffee. That “custardy” note on the nose isn’t coming forward in the brewed cup, but I get a bit of it in the aftertaste on my tongue. A spice note that is very nutmeg forward is present throughout the sip.
Super tasty! I think I’d be happy enough just with a Yunnan tea, but the sweetness and spices are certainly welcome.
