This is a little unexpected, but in a very yummy way. What I expected was something more along the lines of a peppermint tea that has been jazzed up with a little bit of crushed candy cane. But, the vanilla adds a wonderful dimension to this tea that makes it more like a candy cane and less like a breath mint.

A very nice treat! I am glad that Frank found a few of these and added them to his inventory… because it is really YUM!

Nice review this sounds good I wonder how this would compare to candy cane land by celestial seasonings?

I would LOVE to try this one! You know my LOVE of mint!!!

@silvermage2000 ~ I was going to say the same thing! Sounds maybe a bit more flavourful than the CS blend but I’m curious how they compare.

For the age of what this one probably is, it wasn’t bad. Something was just off for me in the way I think the candy cane combined with the black tea. It just made a weird aftertaste I guess. I think I am having a candy in tea off day.

I prefer the Adagio one that I have a giant bag of, so this one will also continue on its traveling tea box journey.

Upping just a tad…I located a bit more of this and enjoyed this cup more than my last :)

This is not really as minty as I thought it would be. It is of course as always with 52Teas a good black tea, but I am just not getting any mint? The candy canes in the tea are super cute!

Try shaking the package next time you steep it, maybe the peppermint leaf has settled? I got mint with this tea, but it isn’t overwhelming.

Kristen

thanks I will try that

This was one of two that came from Frank’s Oops Week in March 2011.

I love this. I am not usually an Indian tea drinker, mostly because I have not tried many. I am guessing it is darjeeling, as I am such an Indian tea noob. The peppermint is light, which is perfect for me, and the hint of vanilla really rounds it out. The tea base is smooth. Very pleasant. I added a little sweeener to mine.

Kudos to Frank! And I just have to thank him for…well, being him, and doing what he does. He makes tea so fun!

I hope I end up with Candy Cane as one of my oops!

Oooooh, this sounds so tasty! Also, I’m very glad to know I’m not the only one who needs sweetener in her tea!

I gotta have it a little sweet…..I am trying to cut it back, though, slowly. Tea has been my replacement for sweets, and it is so working for me!

If you add vanilla to something, I’ll probably like it. This is nice because it technically has three types of peppermint in it. So three times the peppermint helps the peppermint flavor! I loved the smooth creamy flavor to it, which I was hoping was just from the melted candy cane pieces, but reading that description up there made me realize there is vanilla too. And black tea is a nice base for the peppermint. I didn’t like the initial unsteeped smell of this tea, so I’m happy the flavor is much better!

I got this for my husband over the holidays as a stocking stuffer. He allowed me a taste and I for one am not a fan. The Candy Cane peppermint flavor really wasn’t pronounced enough for me. It was a bit bland but it was smooth.

Have to agree…I can not get a real strong pepermint or minty taste from this one.

I’ve had this sample for quite a while and never got around to making it as I’m not into mint teas. But, I remembered I like mint teas with vanilla (when I opened this up it smelled a lot like DAVIDsTEA’s Santa’s Secret), and thought this might make a refreshing iced tea.

Apparently it did as my boyfriend drank the ENTIRE pitcher before I had a chance to taste it. Well, it looked and smelled good!

Not bad, but not a favorite. I couldn’t really taste the mint, but it was a nice smooth, slightly sweet tea. I only have enough for one more cup and I think I might try adding some extra candy cane bits or something to bring the flavor out a bit more.

Thanks for the idea … I always end up with peppermint sticks that just end up in the trash. Now I can recycle!
