Bigelow Eggnogg'n Tea Review
No substitute for the real thing!
Summary : If you are searching for a tea that tastes like the egg nog you find
in the stores around christmas time....well....keep searching.
Review : I love eggnog. But I don't love the calories that comes with
it. And so,
as it happened, while out grocery shopping I came across a cute tea box
with a bunch of penguins in the snow. The tea, made by Bigelow, is called
Eggnogg'n. The tea is labelled as an "eggceptional Winter Tea." As
I was in the mood for eggnog, but was doing my best to hold off on the
calories, I couldn't resist picking up a box and giving it a try.
However, what little taste of eggnog you get in this tea is completely
wiped out by the rather harsh taste of it. In general, tea is best slurped.
Or sipped, if you like and are in a place where "slurping" may
be frowned on. However, the harsh taste in this tea made it taste best
when gulped down - you got a bit more of the eggnog flavor without quite
as much bitter taste.
This tea might be able to be saved by adding sugar and some cream, and
perhaps a few other things too. That said, if you are going to go through
that much trouble to make this Eggnogg'n Tea palatable, you might be best
advised to just make your own eggnog at home or buy some at the grocery
Overall, I'll give Bigelow credit for trying something new. Unfortunately,
at least to my taste buds, this tea was a rather big disappointment.
Recommendation : No - and I don't know who would like
this tea, either!
