This is gorgeous! Of the few candy cane teas I’ve tried so far, this one is hands down the best. The main flavour is sweet creamy vanilla sugar, and then the mint comes through gently in the aftertaste. It’s more a cooling sensation than an actual flavour at first, but it does build in intensity with successive sips. It’s never overpowering, though.
This is a black tea, so I added a splash of milk which I think helped to bring out some of the creamy vanilla flavouring. There are actual fragments of candy cane in the dry mix, so it’s not too surprising that this tea captures the flavour so accurately. A really great pre-christmas tea! Many thanks to KittyLovesTea for sharing some with me!
