Big fan of having a tea in a drawer here at work now. I love being able to grab an afternoon tea and take that 5 mins away from my desk.

While i’m still not a fan of the candy and extra crap DT puts in their teas, this is a decent tea. I’m also a little surprised that i didnt’ rate this one back when i first have it. I suppose there’s no harm done though since i’d be upping the rating a little based on my previous comments. I wish there was a touch more vanilla in this to off sent the mint but it’s a reasonable cup of tea for this afternoon.

This is a great vanilla mint tea. Every time I have a cup I have a moment when I think, " Oh yeah… this really is that good." Love that. What I don’t love is that my bag is starting to look empty. I’m going to miss this tea when it’s gone.

I just had Santa’s Secret yesterday from DavidsTea, but that wasn’t enough peppermint for me. I thought I’d have this one so I can try and compare them.

It seems to me that the ingredients are near identical, except Candy Cane has chocolate and possibly more vanilla, while Santa’s Secret has more mint!

I think this tea is a little weaker than SS, but it still has some nice flavours. I wouldn’t associate chocolate with candy canes, but as a Christmas tea it works! Each sip starts with the base black tea, then makes way for the chocolate before I’m actually hit with a bit of mint. It’s extra nice if you hold it by your nose, while you curl up with a book.

I’m still not sure which I like better, which means I’ll just have to brew both at once and compare!

I wish we could add tags to our cupboard! It’d be great to add “christmas”, “core collection” or “pawn off on someone else” to our teas. :)

That’d be cool – tags or shelves even, in the cupboard?

I actually bought chocolate-filled candy canes tonight.. hehehe.

Cavocorax

I didn’t even know that was a thing! I’ll have to get some.

I really enjoyed this cuppa. It’s refreshing and kinda fun too. I taste candy cane and a hint of chocolate and vanilla. Wish this was a permanent one but I’m guessing it’s seasonal? Regardless, it was fun and delish! :)

I’m a day late on posting the Tenth Day of Christmas tea … but oh well! Yesterday was a very busy day for me, and I wasn’t on the computer very much (we celebrated our holiday yesterday since my oldest daughter wasn’t able to visit either today or tomorrow).

On the Tenth Day of Christmas, Della Terra Teas sent me this tea!

I really REALLY like this interpretation of the candy cane … I love the chocolate addition … it adds such a delicious dimension to the cup. Oh, ok, sure, it does interfere with the peppermint just a wee bit, and makes it taste maybe just a little less like a candy cane in the traditional sense, but, as for this chocoholic, I’ll take a chocolate dipped candy cane over the tradional candy cane any day!

YUM!

Figured I should have this this morning. I was trying to convince my brother last night to have some since the whole wisdom teeth thing has ruined food for a couple days. We got Italian last night and he had to wait for chicken broth and noodles to cook and went around smelling everyone’s dish LOL So last night he was “I want something sweet” and I’m offering him this, a couple other DTT ones I brought, a couple herbals after he said “I don’t think I like tea” and it never worked.

Oh well, he’s missing out cause this made for a great breakfast.

I do like Adagio’s Candy Cane better because it’s more like a straight candy cane. But the addition of chocolate in here is pretty awesome. Back in the day I used to like the chocolate peppermint candy canes but then one year they just started tasting like fake chocolate to me. So this reminds me of them, but way better.

I drank an entire 16 oz mug in no time. It’s not as heavily mint/chocolate as Swiss Mountain, which can taste like mint chocolate frosting amazingness, but the black base is more prominent and it’s a lot lighter, and definitely candylike instead. No need to add anything!

Today, this is perfect. A sample from Dexter3657 (thank you!) from a while back that got misplaced somehow. I found it a while back and put it in my bag to take to work making this the most “travelled” tea for sure because I forgot it was in my bag. Found it! Perfect timing too, it is exactly what I was in the mood for.

2 “perfect” spoons, 16 oz boiling water for 3 minutes. Added sugar and Belgian chocolate creamer — yes, it exists — and it is the perfect tea to have by the fireplace. It is cold in Toronto now and while I don’t want to turn the heat on yet (I have rules about when the furnace gets turned on for the first time) I didn’t see anything wrong with a little fire.

Fall has arrived. Although we’re few good weeks away from Christmas, this chocolate minty tea you can enjoy now since it seems the pumpkin teas are failing us for the most part.

I thought I’d perhaps had this before, but it appears I have not. This is similar to Della Terra’s other black teas with peppermint and vanilla and/or chocolate. In a word, amazing. I’m not a fan of Della Terra’s black teas without mint, but the ones with mint I just can’t get enough of.

It appears my black tea aversion has been cured, as, over the last couple days all I’ve been wanting is a tasty black tea. This has been a great morning in terms of that pursuit.

The resteep of this was also successful.

Woohoo! Back to normal!

I haven’t been on very much over this weekend due to a few family issues, nothing serious just a lot of negativity surrounding my husband. We were supposed to be decorating the house today for Christmas to start feeling the spirit but that hasn’t happened. Since it’s such a shame the house is the same and I’m watching Christmas episodes on tv I thought I may as well drink Christmassy.

I chose the right choice with this tea, I opened it up and took a sniff and smiled and closed my eyes in delight. It smells like creamy vanilla peppermint with a chocolate base. Delicious! My husband saw me sniffing and came to see what the fuss was about and even he said he wants one.

Tasting without milk/creamer or sweetener. Wow it’s simply amazing! Just as it smells, smooth and refreshing peppermint with creamy and fresh. It tastes like a candy cane but with more layers, not just the peppermint. The chocolate is more in the fragrance than taste as is the black tea but it gives more depth in flavour without much of the flavour. It’s so delicious!

This is just what I need right now. Christmas in a mug.

This came in a box of things from Azzrian awhile back. I have not been in the mood for mint lately, which is why I haven’t had it yet. My moods can really vary when it comes to tea! Maybe I like mint better in warmer months. Candy Cane was better than I expected. The mint was not overwhelming-maybe the chocolate toned it down? This was pretty good, even as it cooled down. Glad to have the chance to try it, thanks to Azzrian’s generosity.
