Yummm! Spent 3 hours waiting for gas today, watched a cop get suckerpunched in the face, and now I need to relax with a cup of hot tea. KallieBoo or Tattooed_tea sent this to me as a sample (I’m so sorry I don’t remember…it’s been hectic!). I love candy cane flavored and scented things. I’m a christmas freak :) So I was super excited when I was sent this without even asking.

The dry smell smells mostly of black tea with a hint of peppermint. Smells delicious, just not necessarily like a candy cane. Brews a nice dark brownish black color. Lightly sweetened with German Rock Sugar. Nice dark sweet tea with a hint of peppermint. Absolutely delicious, but does not really remind me of a candy cane. I think that I expected more of the peppermint taste.

I would highly recommend!

I hope you have a good book or music or something for those long waits.
People are in shock and don’t realize that gas trucks can’t traverse through impassable streets and the harbor until they are cleared of debris.
I’m glad you have power and I know you are doing your best as a nurse to help others. Bless you, and everyone working to restore food, water, shelter, transportation and hope.


Yep. The only reason that I am concerned over gas is because I work 30 minutes away. In that field I don’t like calling out because patient care definitely suffers when there is less staff. NJ and NY are strong states. I have no doubt that they are going to bounce back…just takes time. It’s never immediate. Thanks for the concern!

Sipdown tea #9!
This tea has a bit of a warmer note to it other then the candy cane aroma. The flavor is suuupppeeerrrrr minty. It’s sweet, and minty. That’s pretty much it…

Thanks Mitch for sending some of this my way.

This is my first Adagio tea yay. I’m just waiting for it to cool and it smells sweet and peppermint-y.

First sip the black base is pretty overwhelming and quite honestly I’m barely getting peppermint. The black base reminds me of the Kusmi teas I’ve tried, which I thoroughly enjoy. However, a tea named “Candy Cane” I expect to get some mint from. I’ll keep sipping away to see how it pans out.

By Odin, that’s minty! The tea smells more like candy canes dry. Not really the flavour I was looking for.

Not sure how I feel about this tea. It wasn’t what I expected at all but then, I’m not a big candy cane girl so I wasn’t expecting much. But I was expecting some mint. Sadly, my lip gloss with a mint tingle has a more easily identifiable mint than this tea. The mint here is pretty much limited to a fresh mouth feeling after a sip – just a little tingle (again, even my lip gloss is stronger). But that fresh minty feeling is quickly covered by something… musty? Not like attic musty but like wild musk musty. It is the taste that makes a muscadine differ from a white grape. That’s not to say this tasted like grape or muscadine, of course. It’s just that was the musky/musty flavor I was getting. Almost like a vanilla flavor but not quite. Vanilla bean maybe? Cream? I’m not sure. But it made for a much darker, heartier flavor than I expected from something named after a candy.

Did this tea have a sugary sweetness to it?


I don’t remember exactly but I know it didn’t hit me as anything remotely candy-like so I think I can safely say no. It wasn’t bitter but a bit too heavy in flavor (the vanilla or cream or whatever that flavor was) so I didn’t feel that it was sugary (or even overly sweet). If that makes sense. But you might want to ask TeaEqualsBliss… I think she had a more favorable experience with this one.

This tea has a bit more of a “fresh” feel to it than I would expect. I guess it’s from the actual candy canes that are in the tea. (Really! I saw several, with tea stuck to them, in the tin.)I think the thing I like most about this tea is that it’s clearly tea with peppermint in it, rather than a minty tisane that has some tea to it.

This tea is very minty, sweet, and creamy. More amped up than a plain peppermint black tea. I blended this with vanilla black tea and added milk, and it was heavenly! I’ll definitely reorder this during the holidays. And, I have to admit, I love seeing the cute little candy cane bits in the dry leaves :]

I’m on the second steeping, the first was 4 minutes and this one is 5.

I love that I’ve found a peppermint tea that has a black tea base instead of herbal. There was a piece of candy cane in my steeping about an inch long, which is why I opted for a second steeping.

The aroma is very strong. I have it sitting on the floor while I write on the couch and it’s still a delightfully strong smell. I can’t actually see the color since I’m using a dark mug (just trying to cover all the tasting basics;)).

While the second steeping is still quite minty, it’s not worth it except for that. Not much tea flavor leftover. It also appears to be a bit oily in my cup – is this the tea or something I’m doing wrong, you can see it on the side of the cup as I drink it down, too.

The tea is good though, regardless of the other stuff. I enjoy it and have given it as a gift, too. Regarding the note someone mentioned earlier (forgive me for not remembering) mine does not have a name attached to it but I do also have the peppermint candy blend which does have a name attached which I do not remember at the moment).

I made this cold. I thought it would taste better that way, but it tastes a tad better than hot, but not that much. From the tin, it smells like caramel. When i cold brewed it, It tasted like very sweet, minty, creamy caramel. I didn’t enjoy the creamy caramel part of it so much. It makes me want to gag just a little. I do love how there were bits of candy cane in there though.

I can’t wait until I’m through with this. I hate to have tea go to waste…


It might be one to throw into the Travelling Teabox, if you signed up for it. :)

The smell when I first opened it got me really excited about trying it. However, when I did try it I was unimpressed. There was very little candy cane like flavor and I needed to add milk and sugar just to get it to taste like anything other than slightly like black tea. I was very disappointed but relieved that I got it as a free sample and didn’t have to pay for it because if I had I would’ve sent it back if I could.
