I am not a big fan of chocolate flavor in teas but The Malt Shop from Della Terra Teas is a good blend! I love straight teas – unadulterated teas – that taste like chocolate, love them actually, but most blends that add chocolate flavor are a miss for me. This tea is an exception though! The chocolate flavor in this tea is really delicious and it absolutely has a malt flavor, you will think you are having a chocolate malt from an old fashioned ice cream parlor!
This is also a fun tea to play around with, you can add some sweetener if you want although I don’t find it necessary, but I have had it with cream and it is so yummy! Also I have had this iced, made into a slushie with vanilla ice cream, SO GOOD, as well as iced with creamer. Every way I try it is delicious! A versatile and yummy treat!
Really though I did all of that for fun, each time quite happy with the outcome, but this tea stands all on its own as a really decedent delight! No need to go to all the hassle and yes it is in fact just as delicious hot, even though we think of cold when considering a malt right?
This tea could not be truer to its namesake. If you love chocolate malts then grab some of this and enjoy! Its like malted chocolate balls. Also the tea has a thick mouthfeel which adds to the taste of a real chocolate malt! This could make dieting really easy. I think kids would love this tea as well as adults.

Eggnog Matcha, despite its name, does not taste at all like eggs but borders more on the taste of vanilla or even custard. This taste is refined by the balancing effect of Matcha to make a mellow treat that is very pleasurable for the palate. Its thick creamy feel in the mouth makes it an easy favorite for those wanting to treat their palates to pure leisure and unforgettable pleasure. It can be an excellent companion to many snack alternatives because of its sweet base and sumptuous feel on the palate. Eggnog Matcha is a heavenly snack for those occasions where guests deserve to relax and enjoy a full bodied sensation on their palates.

When I want something really frothy and creamy, Eggnog Matcha from Red Leaf Tea fits the bill!
So I am trying to slim down my matcha stash, not because I want to get rid of it, but rather I want to order some of the awesome new flavors that Red Leaf Tea has! So I looked over my matcha stash and saw this Eggnog Matcha sitting there beckoning me. I decided that it was what I was craving! Thick, creamy, very frothy, and heavy in the mouthfeel. It reminds me of custard, just like the description says. I like making mine with vanilla almond milk to give it a bit of a sweeter taste, but the flavors are dead on for Eggnog, and who says that it has to be the holidays to enjoy eggnog? Not me that’s for sure.
I like my flavored matcha from Red Leaf Tea cold, or made into an iced latte personally, and I have only had eggnog served cold as well, so it makes sense to me to prepare it cold.
There is a distinct vanilla flavor to eggnog, but also a slight nod toward nutmeg as well. What I really love about this flavor is that the matcha flavor is not lost in the blend. I can taste all of the matcha goodness here too! I would suggest you consider ordering the robust or at least distinctive blend in this specific flavor because it is not as strong as some of the other Red Leaf Tea flavor options. That is not to say you can’t taste the Eggnog flavor, you can, but if you really want that punch in the face flavor you need to at least go with Robust. When I order this flavor again it will be in the “There’s Matcha In There?” option.
I have enough of this left to do one more thing with it that I have been dying to do, and that is make an Eggnog Shake with it! This is one of those flavors that is a must try with ice cream!
