Taster’s Review:

I am not really a big fan of eggnog.  I don’t dislike it, it’s just not something that I like well enough to ever really buy when I’m in the supermarket, much less attempt to make from scratch.

But I am really liking this cup of eggnog rooibos tisane from Suffuse!  The flavor is similar to eggnog – and it is sweet, creamy… almost custard-like.

The red rooibos is a perfect base for this blend, because the natural nutty flavor of the rooibos tastes very good with the eggnog flavor.  I am also tasting nutmeg.

Overall, this is a very enjoyable cup.  It’s naturally caffeine free, so it would be a good one to serve around the hearth when your family and friends are celebrating the holidays with you.  I found it to be tasty as a hot beverage – I imagine it would be even better with a splash of rum in there!
