Yep, I bought some teas for B&B’s Christmas in July sale. But they had Jelly & Ice Cream! And a couple other lovely blends I wanted to stock up on! I never know when Jelly & Ice Cream will be discontinued for good! So I was sipping a couple B&B teas in the last few days. I really wanted to stock up on some 20gram sizes of other teas but their sale is a real pain when their website is down. Then I just end up grabbing sale stuff. They really need to know the demand of these sales!
Thanks Cameron B for sharing this one! I guess I really procrastinated on trying this one, because I know others were finding it a bit citrusy for some reason and eggnog is NOT citrusy. I’d recommend that those that didn’t like it originally try it again, as I’m not tasting noticeable screaming citrus here. At least nothing obvious. Maybe the tea has aged the citrus away… The problem is, it doesn’t really taste like eggnog either. Maybe hints of spices. But it definitely doesn’t have much in the way of egg or cream. The second cup tasted exactly the same as the first. Better than I expected, but I was expecting nothing great.
