This was a bit of a letdown. I usually love every Della Terra tea I try. This one was okay, but nowhere near as good as the Candy Cane tea from last year. Very similar in flavor, but less minty. The popcorn did nothing for the tea except make it look interesting. I was hoping for a genmaicha sort of toasty-ness to the tea, but really it’s just a milder version of Candy Cane. Sadly, this will not be a “Christmas Tradition” in my house.
I was thinking about what sort of amazing flavor Della Terra could come up with next. If they took the marshmallow caramel dreaminess of Eight Candles and blended that in with a good genmaicha, it would be the most heavenly caramel popcorn flavor ever! Just a thought :)
