Oh my goodness! This tea could get 100 based on smell alone. This is quite possibly the best smelling tea I have ever smelt. It smells exactly like a candy cane. It smells sweet and minty. The mix of cinnamon and peppermint blend perfectly in smell.

The black base comes out at the front with quite the bite, its not something I have experienced in a black tea before. The candy cane taste follows directly after. It tastes just like I’m min Hong on a cane I pulled right off my Christmas tree.

I dont generally add anything to my tea, but I think I’m gonna try adding a rock or two of rock sugar to it.

I don’t think the rock sugar really did much for the tea and I don’t want to add more incase it ruins it. As the tea cooled it lost most of the bite from the black tea and kept the deli opus minty candy cane taste.

This is quite a special tea. I’m glad I took the chance on this company. And I wish you could all try this.

I’m guessing this isn’t available online :( Sounds terrific. My mom has a strange obsession with candy canes lol I would love to get her some. Sounds delicious though. I can’t wait for all the Christmas teas.

It actually is available online. It’s a Canadian company. You can find it at teastore.ca they’ve got so many interesting sounding teas. The names of most are the funnest part.

You just made my night lol. And my mothers, she got little kid excited. Thanks! Your review made me add this to my wishlist…

The Tea Store is pretty great! Any time I’m in Ottawa (which sadly doesn’t happen often, long trip) I try to stop by the byward market to go to lush and the tea store. It’s a lovely shop to visit if you have the chance.

This must be the candy cane that tattooed_tea sent me since shes the only one who reviewed it! Two different lovely steepsters sent me two different candy cane samples and I got myself all mixed up.

The dry smell of this is strong and delicious. A highly aromatic scent of peppermint, black tea, and cinnamon. I at first thought the cinnamon was an odd addition and wondered how it would mix in. It smells absolutely amazing while brewing…I almost didn’t want to wait for it to finish.

I liked this one a bit better than the one by adagio teas. The adagio one had more of a peppermint taste, but this one blended nicely with the taste of cinnamon. Again, I wouldnt say that it overwhelmingly tasted like candy cane, but still…it was amazing and reminded me of Christmas time. I would definitely add permanently to my collection.

I picked this up as part of my haul at the ottawa tea festival today, and decided it would be my first cup!

I was so intrigued by the smell of this (like mint mixed with hot cinnamon hearts), but was a bit worried about how it would taste. I did notice the leaves were larger than what I’m used to (as a tea newbie most of my teas come from David’s tea).

I’m happy to say this tea delivered! It was frankly one of the best black teas I’ve ever had. It was smooth and minty, and surprisingly not spicy like it smells.
I’m very excited to try the other tea I bought from here, and to visit this shop as soon as i can justify it!!
