A cup full of candy cane peppermint bliss.

This cup of tea was smooth and had such a gentle but very full flavor. It almost tasted like a thin piece peppermint bark was melting on my tongue with every sip. The peppermint is stronger than the chocolate, but the white chocolate pieces give the tea a slightly lighter and cloudier appearance as well as a smooth creaminess. I found that the slower I took each sip, the stronger the peppermint was on my tongue, leaving a welcomed and flavorful lasting effect.
I could definitely see how some may find this too sweet, especially since it does have the white chocolate, sprinkles and the pieces of candy cane, however the sweetness was spot on for me. My critique would be that I would rather have more of the candy cane pieces instead of the sprinkles, just to boost the candy cane flavor a little, as well as to maintain the sweetness.
I discovered this tea on sale in late January, so I could not purchase a large quantity of loose leaf, just a few individual tea bags. I will most definitely be purchasing enough to last me through the whole year if/when it restocks this winter.
