drank Candy Cane Black by Virtuous Teas
230 tasting notes

Drank this on the way to work today. It was much more minty then the last time I drank it. This was a great start of the day! The combination of mint, buttercream and black tea is great. The owner of virtuous teas, Eo, informed me that this was a blend made in house.

I love that even though the most prominent flavor is mint I can still taste the other notes (buttercream, vanilla, hearty black tea) underneath.

That sounds delicious. And well balanced, which is nice.

I’d share it with you ladies but this was my last cup! Do you know of any mint teas that are balanced without the Mint overpowering?

I can think of some that are mixed with another flavor where the mint isn’t too over powering…like Apple Mint from McNulty;s for example or are you thinking straight-up mint and black tea???

Ellyn

I think both would be good. I LOVE mint but don’t always want to feel like I am drinking mint gum!

I like all kinds of tea and am open to new things. I am learning about all kinds of new tea and am working on pushing my palate with new tastes.

Looking for new tea shops/houses/cafes and finding new teas to sample is often part of the adventure!

Bringing varied teas to work makes the day interesting

I live in Framingham, MA with my husband, a cranky orange cat and an oversized chihuahua.

I am open to tea swaps from around the world and tea meetups if anyone is in the Greater Boston/ New England area.

As of 7/6/14 I am working to make every tea I own appear in my cupboard…including things I only have a small amount. Look around! Want to swap?
