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 store.

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!
