drank Candy Cane Crush by DAVIDsTEA
22 tasting notes

Day 22 DavidsTea 24 Days of Tea advent calendar — Candy Cane Crush. What a fun tea! Looks cute in the steeping basket, though it brews up a bit muddy looking. With a dash of milk, it’s a fine, fun holiday/winter beverage. I’m not into actual candy canes, though I recall liking them a lot as a child. This tea calls to mind that nostalgic vibe from the candy while not being actual candy. The super strong mint keeps the sweetness in check and the chocolate gives it a grounded base, so it all just works. It’s got a bit of creaminess, but I found it did need milk to give it the more satisfying heft it seemed to want.

Just picked some of this up during the annual post-Christmas sale. Not sure if I’d buy it at full retail price, as I tend not to reach for heavily flavoured teas very often, but at 40% off, it’s a winner!

Flavors: Chocolate, Cream, Peppermint, Smooth, Sweet

Tea lover, number cruncher, gin reaper, clown wrangler.

New to the world of tea, only been drinking it regularly for 2 years and spent the 1st year mostly just enjoying a few nice oolongs from a sampler someone gifted me and the odd breakfast assam, not experimenting really at all. My tastes are, overall, in tea and in life, both undeveloped and unrefined, though I have always tended towards unadulterated or, if flavoured, lighter fruity teas. Not a sweets person in general. Still discovering what I do/don’t like in the realm of tea. But when it comes to my other liquid love, gin, I do know I’m all about the herbaceous, the earthy, spice, citrus, and unexpected flavour profiles, but almost never sweet or floral. So, I’m gonna guess odds are that my taste in tea may prove to run along similar lines.

Joined Steepster largely to document my adventure into the world of potpourri dessert teas, also known as the 2017 DavidsTea 24 Days of Tea advent calendar. Bought it on a whim & am ready for a journey of … some kind. Could be delightful discovery. Could be daily disappointments. We shall see!
