Not sure how I feel about this tea. It wasn’t what I expected at all but then, I’m not a big candy cane girl so I wasn’t expecting much. But I was expecting some mint. Sadly, my lip gloss with a mint tingle has a more easily identifiable mint than this tea. The mint here is pretty much limited to a fresh mouth feeling after a sip – just a little tingle (again, even my lip gloss is stronger). But that fresh minty feeling is quickly covered by something… musty? Not like attic musty but like wild musk musty. It is the taste that makes a muscadine differ from a white grape. That’s not to say this tasted like grape or muscadine, of course. It’s just that was the musky/musty flavor I was getting. Almost like a vanilla flavor but not quite. Vanilla bean maybe? Cream? I’m not sure. But it made for a much darker, heartier flavor than I expected from something named after a candy.

Did this tea have a sugary sweetness to it?

I don’t remember exactly but I know it didn’t hit me as anything remotely candy-like so I think I can safely say no. It wasn’t bitter but a bit too heavy in flavor (the vanilla or cream or whatever that flavor was) so I didn’t feel that it was sugary (or even overly sweet). If that makes sense. But you might want to ask TeaEqualsBliss… I think she had a more favorable experience with this one.

I’m trying to be a better tea logger and actually post semi-regularly again! I’ve let my tea tasting senses become too complacent – it’s time for some focused and attentive tea drinking!

Sometimes my notices for PMs and such have been questionable. Email me at your own risk at aug3zimm at gmail dot com.


1 – 10 – Bleck. Didn’t finish the cup.
11 – 25 – Drinkable. But don’t punish me by making me have it again.
26 – 40 – Meh. Most likely will see if the husband likes it iced.
41 – 60 – Okayish. Maybe one day I’ll kill off what I have in my pantry.
61 – 75 – Decent. I might pick some up if I needed tea.
76 – 85 – Nice. I’d probably buy but wouldn’t hunt it down.
86 – 100 – Yum! I will hunt down the vendor to get this tea!

Not that anyone but me particularly cares, but there it is.
