It completely slipped my mind that BrewTEAlly Sweet sent me “a little something for the upcoming holidays” when she packaged up the tea I purchased from her. I wish I would have remembered before I tore the house apart looking for the samples that came with my DAVIDsTEA Steeper. This was one of the samples they included and I’ve been really looking forward to trying. It’s starting to bug me that I can’t find those silly samples I know they’re in the house somewhere…
Either way, thanks to BrewTEAlly Sweet I can enjoy this tea while sitting inside watching all the snow come down, and pretend that I don’t need to go out soon and start up the snow thrower.
I’m not sure what I can say about this tea that hasn’t already been written. It is a great holiday tea; I really enjoy the candy cane sprinkles, even though I’m fundamentally against sprinkles in tea. Sprinkles and sparkles may not belong in my tea, but they’re just so fun looking, aren’t they? I tend to make exceptions for them this time of year, I know, I’m a little fickle.
Della Terra has a similar version of this tea, in previous years it was called Candy Cane Lane, and I’ve gone through quite a bit of their version since I enjoy it so much. This is one of the few teas from DAVIDs that I would order again. I’ve been allergic to several of their teas so I don’t tend to buy from them anymore, even though I do enjoy some of their seasonal selections such as this one.
