Mom and I had this blend in the David’s Tea Holiday wheel, it was a nice treat. It wasn’t sweet like some of their other blends and it was minty without being too much.

It wasn’t as minty as I would like it to be, I steeped it for about 4 minutes and I used 200 degree water like it said, I also used one perfect spoon. I’m trying it Iced now which it tastes a bit better but it makes a really weird white film on the top of it.
So I had this from my holiday tea sampler for the very first time and was looking forward to trying it. There was a similar blend from Teavana years ago I think. Smells great, tastes great, indeed reminiscent of whatever blend that was. But oooof, the stomach ache I have now is a bit much from just tea. After looking at the ingredients which admittedly I should’ve done before, white chocolate is the second one listed after the tea itself which means there’s quite a bit of it in there. Drat. I’ll take a lactase pill next time.

Day 6 of my DIY 24 Days of DAVIDsTea!
I really didn’t expect to have Santa’s Secret & Candy Cane Crush back-to-back… what an ironic coincidence. But I suppose that was bound to happen, right? Candy Cane Crush tastes like the result of combining white chocolate and candy canes, then liquifying the mixture. It’s sweet, creamy, minty, and as a latte, it’s such a rich, festive tasting beverage. As a fan of both candy canes & white chocolate, my thoughts on this tea are already pretty biased. But just like Santa’s Secret, I don’t ever really crave or reach for CCC outside of the holidays, but still enjoy wholeheartedly when that time goes back around.
Flavors: Creamy, Peppermint, Sweet, Vanilla, White Chocolate
The flavor of Candy Cane Crush is overall extremely minty and sweet. The flavors blend together well to produce a creamy, dessert feeling sip after sip! Personally, I like to enjoy a few cups of Candy Cane Crush each winter season, but its rich flavor is strong enough to satisfy my craving of mint chocolate with a single cup.
Flavors: Chocolate, Cream, Creamy, Mint, Sweet, White Chocolate
First and foremost, the dry tea itself is adorable. Upon steeping it, however, it turns a ghastly opaque warm gray, with a frightening sheen of oil on top. The flavor isn’t bad, but isn’t really spectacular. It just tastes like a peppermint tea with a bit of funk to it. Every sip of this tea leaves a thin oily residue on your lips reminiscent of a fresh application of lip balm. Fantastic tea for those with dry lips.
