Tea Review: Candy Cane Tea (The Dragon's Treasure)

Candy Cane Tea
The Dragon's Treasure
Type: Flavored Black
Origin: Not Provided
Product Description:
Candy canes are a staple of any Christmas diet, and now you can enjoy them in tea form! This limited time holiday tea will satisfy all cravings, but be sure to get it before time runs out.
Temperature: 208° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 3 minutes

The dry leaf blend includes black tea, candy cane pieces, peppermint leaves, and natural candy cane flavor.  

The dark red infusion has a bold aroma of peppermint candy and vanilla.  The taste is boldly peppermint with candy-like notes, moderate astringency, and a long, long finish.

A little goes a long way with natural peppermint leaf and I found the results when steeping 3 grams of tea for 3 minutes to be a little overpowering.  Slightly less leaf or a shorter infusion time will help immensely.   I found that steeping for 2 minutes for the first and subsequent infusions was just right for my tastes; enjoyably bold, much like a candy cane.  This particular blend is seasonal and was no longer available at the time of this review.  Check back with The Dragon's Treasure closer to winter to stock up.

This tea was purchased by me.
