Another tea from my Adagio Holiday Sampler gift set that arrived this morning. Again it’s not romantic in the usual sense but I asked for this for Valentines day as I really wanted to try them. The set has some yummy sounding flavours/blends.
Once steeped this tea is dark brown/red with a sweet peppermint scent.
This tea is refreshing and sweetly minty but is rather on the subtle side. You can tell it’s peppermint but at this point it’s more peppermint tea rather than candy cane tea. :(
The more I drink the stronger the mint becomes and it’s making my mouth tingle like mouthwash does. Unfortunately the sweetness is lost to this thick tingling peppermint mist and it has truly taken the candy part of the equation.
As a peppermint tea it’s nice but not special.
Overall this tea is nice but it’s nothing compared to Della Terra’s Candy Cane.
