Tea Review: Egg Nog Tea (MarketSpice)

Advent Tea Calendar Day 5

Egg Nog Tea
MarketSpice
Type:  Flavored Black
Origin:  China, Hunan Province
Product Description:  A seasonal favorite, this Chinese Hunan black tea contains Nutmeg, Cinnamon and Eggnog flavoring.

Temperature: 208° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 3 minutes

The dry leaves have an aroma of nutmeg, cinnamon, and creamy egg nog.

The infusion is orange-amber with a sweet aroma of nutmeg, cinnamon, and egg nog.  The taste is astringent with notes of nutmeg, cinnamon, and pine.

This tea is best with milk and sugar to bring out the egg nog flavor.  Most of the flavor goes directly into the first cup, so a second infusion is not recommended.
