SSTTB: Pick #3
One thing I’ve learned through swaps is that if you have the opportunity to try a 52Teas blend you definitely take it because, while they are often hit and miss, there are some real gems to be found and since everything is so limited and the reblends are never quite the same you never know if you’ll have the opportunity to try it again! So I’m definitely going to try and taste every 52Teas blend in the box, and I will for sure be adding some to it as well.
This is what I started with last night. I have to say this was not one of those awesome gems (Fruit Hoops is totally sticking out in my mind right now; damn that one was good!) but it wasn’t awful either. I find Frank’s honeybush often comes off as really peppery to me and this tasted like that at first but as it cooled off that flavour faded. There were some light eggy notes to this and a soft but consistent creaminess, and I definitely picked up on the nutmeg but overall I just didn’t feel like this was obviously eggnog flavoured. It was sorta too weak and generic.
But I’m definitely happy to have tried it because I remember being so tempted to order it when it came out! And like I said, it certainly wasn’t bad – it just wasn’t stellar either.
