From DAVIDsTEA

What do skating, snowball fights and sledding have in common? They all call for tea. And this decadent blend is like a minty wonderland in a cup. Think creamy white chocolate drops. Rich, comforting black tea. Crushed peppermint candy cane pieces. And tons of cute little snowflake sprinkles. One sip of this sweet, icy-cool blend is all it takes to get you smiling from ear to ear – especially if you add it to your next mug of holiday eggnog. Could this tea be any more festive? We think not.

Price per 50g: $7.98

This is another tea from my accidental Sips By box. I’ve had this one before in a Christmas collection from a few years ago, and I enjoyed it at the time. There are so many sprinkles and white chocolate chips in the bag that there’s almost no actual tea. They make the water super white and cloudy and sweet, but I still needed to add a little extra sugar to bring the flavor out. It’s just like a liquid peppermint candy. This is the sort of tea that some people hate, but I don’t mind one bit. The only think that I dislike is how weird and clumpy it becomes if you put it in the fridge. So definitely drink it all in one sitting! Based on flavor alone, this one is is very nice.

This was good yesterday, but very sweet. Sweeter than I usually like, which is quite impressive since that’s hard to do. Hard to go wrong with a minty black tea though. I’ll finish the bag rather than give it up.

There is a whole lot of candy in this tea, which makes me feel a little uneasy about it. Is it really just candy canes crushed up and put on some tea? It tastes pretty good tho. The top of my tea is a little oily which is weird. It’s strange to have hot tea with a cooling sensation! The flavors are pretty well balanced, nothing strange in the finish. I would like to have a tea like this as a staple in my cupboard that doesn’t have a bunch of added sugar. Until then, I’ll enjoy this sample.

I quite like the Candy Cane green rooibos from Simpson & Vail. It does have stevia in it, but I’m fairly sensitive to sweeteners and it’s not too much for me. Plus, it’s not really a candy cane tea without some sweetness! ;)

I haven’t tried that one! I have a mostly hate relationship with stevia. Someone here suggested a particular source of stevia that didn’t bother them and that one is okay in moderation for me.
You are right about the sweetness with candy cane. It was a fun tea to try.

This tea is quite yummy! Black teas are my favourite, and peppermint is a fantastic Christmasy flavour that really gets me in the spirit! On its own this tea is fairly good, but I definitely prefer it with some milk or as a tea latte. Currently I’m enjoying it as a tea latte with eggnog, which, if you haven’t tried is incredibly delicious (you don’t need to add any additional sweetner). I haven’t really tasted any other candy cane flavoured teas, but this one will definitely remain a Christmas must-have for me!

Drinkable but meh. It brews up a light murky orangy pink. It has black tea in the mix but you cannot tell when it brews up that there is any black tea in it. I had to add sweetener to it to make it taste like anything which is odd given the amount of candy in it. Once sweetened I can only taste slick feeling peppermint but I expected some black tea flavor too. Sadly disappointed in this cute mix.

I remember liking this one last Christmas. But wow, it has so many sprinkles and white chocolate chips in it! It even brews up quite murky because of it, which is a little off-putting.

Well, there’s no arguing that it’s candy cane. The peppermint is strong, sharp, and refreshing. It leaves a cooling sensation on the tongue.

It does taste as if I’ve added milk to it, I assume because of all the white chocolate. It’s sweet but not terribly so.

I generally prefer my tea without additives, but I’ll likely keep this one because it is quite festive with a convincing candy cane flavor. I may considering picking out some of the white chocolate chips…

I can never decide if I love or hate this one. That’s part of why I never have reviewed it! My kids love it, so I definitely keep it around, but I don’t usually partake. The greasiness is definitely offputting to me in a drink. (Now French fries, or cheese, or burgers…)

I definitely prefer the green rooibos version from Simpson & Vail for a candy cane tea.

I love love love this one. But, sadly, I’ve sipped it down and have to hope DavidsTea will bring it back this winter. A sweet, lightly minty work tea that never fails to bring a smile to my face.
