I’m the kinda gal where I may have one candy cane during the holiday season and I’m good. I even generally prefer they be the flavored candy canes as I’m not a huge peppermint fan. I leave the after dinner mints cuz to me they’re just meh. I wasn’t terribly excited when my tea of the month arrived with this tea in it but I’ve had good experiences with teas that I wouldn’t normally buy that were sent to be through this subscription (I’m looking at you blueberry one…).
I waited until after Thanksgiving (because it’s not cool to rush into Christmas) and had this over the weekend. I’m happy to report that the candy cane is not overwhelming (which will be disappointing to those who are looking for that). It’s there, but sweeter (might have been the brown sugar splenda I always add). Overall, the cup was very enjoyable and put me in about as much holiday spirit as I’m capable of mustering. I wouldn’t seek it out outside the season, but it’s a nice cup for the holidays.
