This tastes very similar to other candy cane black teas I’ve had in the past, especially a Davidstea one…I can’t remember which. It’s basically what you’d expect. I taste a lot of sweet, creamy mintiness, along with the black base. It’s nice with milk, but it doesnt stand out front the crowd. I usually make my second steeps pretty concentrated since I don’t trust flavored teas to have much strength left. However, I accidentally made a full sized resteep of this, and it was fantastic! So minty and fresh, maybe even better than the first steep. I didn’t use milk for that one.
