Adagio Teas : Candy Cane Flavored Black Tea Review

An Interesting Tea That Really Does Taste Like Candy Cane

Summary : If you have been searching the world over for a tea that tastes like a calorie and sugar free candy cane, then you have found it, in Adagio Teas Candy Cane Tea.

Review : One great thing about Christmas is all the candy, cookies and other tasty things that suddenly show up. Christmas M&M's, exotic cookies, fancy caramels, unique chocolates and, of course, candy canes...all make their appearance after Thanksgiving. The problem, of course, is the heavy price you pay in terms of your waistline.

Candy Cane Flavored Black Tea Leaves

As such, I was quite curious to see what the Candy Cane Flavored Tea from Adagio Teas would taste like. After all, if this tea tastes like candy canes, what better way to enjoy a calorie free, sugar free mint drink...all year long.

Here is how Adagio Teas describes this tea on their website : "Premium black tea from Sri Lanka flavored with minty candy canes. This wonderfully smooth treat that will fill you with warm Christmas spirit and leave you jolly. Santa knows if you've been naughty or nice, so you'd better buy some for a friend, too! Give our Candy Cane Tea a try before Yuletide's end."

As you can see by the photo, this tea does indeed contain actual chunks of candy cane in it. While the aroma straight out of the tin doesn't proclaim mint all that loudly, there is never-the-less a slight mint aroma about it.

Once this tea has been brewed, however, this tea does indeed become a mint tea. And more specifically, a candy cane tea. And it is a really strong tea too.

This tea, quite simply, is probably about as close as you are going to get to finding the taste of candy cane in a tea. I was personally rather surprised by how closely this tea mimicked the taste of an actual candy cane.

Moreover, the taste was really, really strong. No fait taste of candy cane here. You take one sip of this tea, and bang, you know...just know...that this is a candy cane flavored tea. For this reason, if you arent' a huge fan of either candy cane or strong mint teas, you may wish to avoid this particular tea...as you may find the taste a bit overpowering.

Recommendation : Yes. If you like candy canes, the odds are quite high that you'll enjoy this tea...as it does indeed taste remarkably similar to a candy cane straight off the Christmas Tree. If mint or candy canes are not your thing, however, don't be surprised if the strong taste overpowers your tastes.
