Love this one! To me it’s just the right level of sweet for a dessert or treat type of tea. I steep it for about 4 or 5 minutes, and enjoy it “black” (although given the white chocolate, it isn’t really black at all, haha), with a splash of milk, or as a latte. It tastes far mintier to me than the similar Santa’s Secret does, but also much sweeter. Where Santa’s Secret is a nice sipping tea all through the day, Candy Cane Crush is more indulgent and flavorsome. The black tea taste itself isn’t very pronounced, but all the lovely mint and sweetness does get a nice malty background from it. Definitely a favorite and it’s hard to resist having it all the time, but this blend has quite a bit of sugar for it to be an ‘every day’ tea. Glad it’s limited edition for that reason, haha.
I can imagine it’d be lovely as a strongly brewed latte topped with whipped cream – maybe next Christmas I’ll try it like that.
