This was part of my latest order from S & V… I think this tea is YUMMY!

The green rooibos provides a nice base for this blend. It reminds me of the famous Candy Cane Lane by Celestial Seasonings but I like this blend better. In my opinion, it has the perfect amount of sweetness for a Candy Cane tea and is very minty. This is a knock your socks off kind of mint, not a wimpy mint. Sometimes stevia teas are so sweet that they are downright revolting but this is good. I used about 2 tsp. of tea for a 10 oz. mug but I might try cutting that in half… it’s pretty strong.

I got 4 oz. of this and I’m very glad. It will be a good blend for the holidays. I happen to like green rooibos but you don’t find a lot of blends made with it, S & V has a few and I’m drinking my way through them.
