Our Tea of the Month is here, and of course it had to be something Christmasy! 🙂 Adagio Teas (the company I use to design my teas) offers lots of festive options, such as gingerbread, chestnut, and a Christmas spiced tea. I’ve used several of these in the past and wanted something different, so I decided to start with their candy cane tea. With the sweet peppermint flavor as a base, I knew I could go in two directions: further sweeten in with a chocolate tea or balance the sweetness with a bit of lemon tea. I tried both and loved it with lemon! Grab a tin of this for Christmas to share with friends, and if you feel your heart grow a couple sizes, don’t worry. That’s normal. 😉
This blend starts with the sweet freshness of candy cane, enhanced with a bit of peppermint herbal tea. The addition of the herbal tea increases the flavor without making the minty “cold burn” sensation overpowering. Each sip has a faint citrusy finish provided by a touch of lemon grass and lemon balm. It reminds me a lot of Tori’s Peppermint Tea (which is still one of my favorite blends), just with more mint. Brew a cup of this festive tea to serve alongside your Who pudding and roast beast! 🙂
You can order it here!
