Tea Recipe: Cheggnog

Since the last time I posted my tea recipe for Chai Eggnog, which many people have fallen in love with. However, some folks complained that it simply took too long and was too much work when they are so busy.

So this time I present to you a “cheater version” of this recipe, which has been thoroughly enjoyed in the Tavalon breakroom for the past couple weeks (without the optional booze, I would hope). Since it doesn’t taste exactly the same as the original recipe, the Tavalon staffs have given it a new nickname, Cheggnog (which I secretly refer to as “Cheater Eggnog“… but it is still pretty good).

The major difference between this recipe and the previous is that we go back on the original premise that you have to make the eggnog from scratch, instead emphasising that the quality of the store-bought brand is essential.

Instead of buying the low quality found in most corner supermarkets, I encourage you to try to find one in which you can pronounce most of the ingredients and preferably is organic.

After that, you just heat and add tea!

Tea Recipe to Make Cheggnog

  • 4 cups high-quality store-bought eggnog, preferably organic
  • 1 heaping tablespoon Kama Chai Sutra tea
  • Spiced rum or bourbon (optional)


In a medium saucepan, heat the eggnog until just before boiling. Remove from heat, add the tea leaves, stir and allow to steep for 30 minutes. Strain and chill for 3 hours.

Once it is thoroughly chilled, serve in a teacup with 1.5 oz of rum or bourbon (if using) and sprinkle with a bit of nutmeg.
