  • Details

    The Vienna Egg Nog Flavored Black Tea blend from English Tea Store is based on the rum-based versions of the early Americas. Delightfully sweet with notes of caramel and ginger, this blend is delicious on it's own, or with a splash of real rum.

    Eggnog, the popular spiced, milk-based holiday beverage is thought to descend from an ancient European drink called Posset. The drink was made by boiling milk and adding wine or ale, which would cause it to curdle. Spices, typically nutmeg and cinnamon were then added to fill out the flavor.

    During the Middle Ages, Posset was generally consumed to as a remedy for the common cold and to ease general bodily aches and pains. By the 13th century, it is said that monks began adding eggs to their Posset, an innovation that would ultimately lead to the creation of Eggnog, centuries later.

    During the 18th century, a variation of the drink is thought to have crossed the Atlantic to what were then still British Colonies in the Americas. Initially, cheap Rum from the Caribbean was used to prepare the beverage. After the Revolutionary War however, with their supply of Rum cut off, American's blending Eggnog with whiskey and bourbon. Around this time it also came to be associated with the holidays, a tradition that continues to this day.

    Caffeine content: Medium - This tea contains natural caffeine found in the L. Camellia Sinensis family. A cup of black tea steeped in boiled water for 5 minutes will contain between 27 to 35 milligrams of caffeine. An equal sized cup of coffee will contain between 80 - 100 milligrams of caffeine. Caffeine quickly becomes soluble in very hot water. If you wish to reduce the caffeine level in this tea, briefly rinsing the tea leaves in extremely hot water will reduce the caffeine content between 25-50% with only a minor effect on taste.

    Antioxidant Content: High - polyphenols by dry weight. The longer you steep your tea the more polyphenols will be extracted. (Test results based on 5 minutes steeping time. Polyphenol percentages may fluctuate with lot, grade of tea, testing method, temperature of water and freshness of tea). More antioxidants are extracted from tea (L. Camellia Sinesis) the longer it is brewed. And the more tea is used, the greater the antioxidant benefit.

      The Best Tea Ever

      Posted by Cherbearz13 on Apr 17th 2019

      I ordered this tea last year. It is rich with flavors. It’s smooth and with cream and sugar it’s heavenly. I wanted to buy some more but had passed the post Christmas sales. I regretted that. I’ve had to make my bag last. I came to look at the Easter specials and saw Christmas teas!! I’m getting some now!! This tea is the only one I want to drink every day. Forget the treat it is over the holiday! It’s way too good once a year. They have other lovely teas spiced to drink once a year. This should be a year round tea. The flavors of the spices are high quality and aren’t lacking. Well done signature product!

      It's Actually Pretty Good

      Posted by MARK B on Jan 27th 2019

      I was hesitant about this, Egg Nog, really... But it actually tastes really good and mellow. Don't expect this to taste like a cup of "real" egg nog, go to the milk isle for that. This tea is good if you do not add too many leaves and let it sit for at least 5 minutes or longer. Not overly spicy, mellow and no bit on your tongue. Great to enjoy anytime. Thanks for making another great tasting tea ETS! I'd actually give this 4.5 stars if I could.

      Very strong, interesting flavor

      Posted by Julathon on Jan 26th 2019

      I was intrigued by the name of the tea, and in the mood to try something new, so I ordered this tea. I find it way too strong as a single blend. But, if I mix it with a plain black tea, 1 part Vienna Egg Nog to 2 parts black tea, I rather enjoy it. It isn't my favorite, but it is a nice change of pace from my regular tea options.
