Another box down…had some Saturday night! STILL LOVE IT! Thank the tea gods that I bought 4 boxes a few weeks ago!

I grabbed the last three at a local target last month myself. :)

We have a ton of these left over from the holidays. Maybe I should pick up a box after seeing this post. :)

2 things…
ONE…I found 4 boxes of this today and bought all 4 in a flash!!! If anyone wants me to mail them a sample or two…respond with your email addy and I will drop you an email for arrangements.
TWO…I found a nifty Tea Bag Holder Template online this morning and have been making tea bag holders for my cheaper bagged teas for tea swaps! YAY!

Okay…so…I’ve reviewed this tea many times and it’s still a winner. It’s like Tea Crack! (just kidding)

What does the tea bag holder look like? post a pic if you can :)

TeaEqualsBliss

Well, I am just doing plain ones now…but I hope to alter them in the near future…let me see if I can find the URL with the print out template…

rabbysmom

Kitch3ntools

i want to try this now :) i may need to run to the store in the morning and pick up a box :)

Bethany

Every store I’ve gone to that carries the holiday teas has only had one box remaining of Candy Cane Lane, so I now have two boxes, but that doesn’t seem like nearly enough..

gmathis

Hope your show went well. What kinds of crafty things do you do?

TeaEqualsBliss

@gmathis…we don’t make but we resell candles. We are also Wildtree Reps now. Plus some handmade cards and wreaths, etc…for crafts. By WE I mean my mother and I.

This sounds dreamy. I might have to pick some up before the holidays are over.

TeaEqualsBliss

And the price is NICE too! :P It’s my fave CS Tea – might even be on my top 10 bagged teas too!

laurenpressley

I agree! It’s in my top 10 bagged teas as well!

mindala

Hmm, I can’t seem to find this anywhere. I’ve been to 3 stores so far. Perhaps its already been gobbled up by local tea fans.

TeaEqualsBliss

Bummer. Last year my local herb store had it and Wegman’s Chain Grocery Stores. What kind of stores/chains do you have by you???

mindala

I’m in San Antonio. I tried Whole Foods, Central Market, and HEB. Will try Sun Harvest next. I haven’t seen any of their holiday teas this year though… maybe they’re in a special display section.

TeaEqualsBliss

That could be. Good luck!

mindala

Hooray! I found it after asking a store clerk. It was, in fact, on a display shelf.

I’m not embarrassed to say it…THIS is my FAVE tea from CS! I don’t care if it’s bagged, I don’t care if it’s cheap…I LOVE IT! The only bummer…it’s seasonal and not available year ’round.

Jillian

Cheers! CS makes great holiday teas which makes up for their rather mediocre regular teas, IMO. I’m eagerly looking forward to when they appear in the grocery store.

LENA

hey, no shame in liking what you like!

tease

Haha, I see. Welcome to tea junk food! What exactly is this supposed to taste like? Never had it…

sweetpshirin

I almost never see this tea in any of my local stores so I put in a big order and stock up from CS directly so I can enjoy it year round.

Rena Sherwood

It’s the day before Thanksgiving and already the local grocery stores are nearly out of Candy Cane Lane.

Steeped two bags overnight in cold water. Should have stuck with 1 probably, as the toasted (almost burnt) rice flavor is a bit strong! Only 3 bags left and this one is gone! I’m pretty sure CS has discontinued their Saphara line. Let’s hope so. There’s a reason this was on clearance at the grocery store. Lesson learned! It was serviceable as an intro to genmaicha, but I’m ready to move on!

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

used a bag of this to make a simple ochazuke (green tea rice soup) for breakfast using some leftover rice & edamame. Mmmm…

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 3 min, 15 sec

I’d use a different green tea, but the general idea sounds good! But for breakfast?
