This was from a little sampler stack I bought from the Davids sale! Sometimes I’m happy with simply enough tea for 2-3 servings. I just want to try it! This blend is full of sugary goodies. At least three kinds of sugary goodies… and that is what it tastes like. The brew is one of the muddiest brews I’ve ever seen. And it certainly tastes like liquid candy canes… with a hint of stevia. I like it, but I could do without the stevia. Can you even make candy canes with stevia? I don’t think I’d eat them. The second steep looks just as muddy, even though it looked like the ingredients had all dissolved in the first steep. But it was a much lighter color of mud this time around. The description calls this a “rich” black tea, but I’d hardly call it “rich”. Throwing half a candy cane to melt in a good black tea works just as well.
Steep #1 // 1 1/3 teaspoons for full mug // 20 minutes after boiling // 2 minute steep
Steep #2 // 3 minutes after boiling // 5 min
