This tea has so much potential! I am a person who absolutely loves anything with a peppermint flavour. However I find that this tea has quite an astringency which is really surprising “candy cane” tea. I want to love this tea so badly, however I don’t! I seem to always get a headache whenever I drink this… which is a strange side effect. I don’t get a headache with any other tea I own, so I have no idea why this one is different. I’ve only drank this tea hot… I really can’t imagine trying to drink this as an Iced Tea or cold brew! I think it would loose its Christmas charm. I still have faith in this tea, so I think I will try this as a latte next. Maybe that will help out with the astringency and the headache side effect.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 4 min, 0 sec 1 tsp

Growing up, I hated tea. Everything about it from the way it smelt to the way it looked absolutely repulsed me. Until one fateful day, I walked past DAVIDsTEA and accepted one of the samples they they to force down your throat. The clouds opened, and the tea angels sang a heavenly tea song. I was addicted. My tea cupboard of wonder contains 63 different teas, and its growing daily. I do not have a tea base preference because when I’m craving a cuppa, I let the cupboard beckon me, and let fate decide. My tea cupboard is nearly famous, since most people ask to marvel it. However, the rules of the cupboard are: you do not talk about the cupboard, you DO NOT talk about the tea cupboard… and its strictly look, don’t touch. My tea cupboard is organized by base, then alphabetized under each category. Some call it crazy, but I call it AMAZING (and maybe a little OCD)
