Time to start pulling out my Christmas themed teas. I’m watching ‘Orange Is The New Black’ on Netflix, very entertaining!
This smells sweet and minty, exactly like candy cane. The mint is quite distinctly peppermint but definitely more like sweet peppermint than pure, leafy peppermint.
Taste is nice and sweet with a refreshing peppermint but the black base is still quite strong. I like that I can taste the black tea, it’s smoky yet malty and dark which is a nice contrast against the sweet and sticky peppermint. If I was to be critical of this tea then I would say that the peppermint would have been nicer if it was just a little stronger but honestly by itself this is very tasty.
I have no idea why this doesn’t have any other reviews, it really should have. My first Christmas tea of the year and I have plenty of this one to celebrate the holidays with. :)
