What do skating, snowball fights and sledding have in common? They all call for tea. And this decadent blend is like a minty wonderland in a cup. Think creamy white chocolate drops. Rich, comforting black tea. Crushed peppermint candy cane pieces. And tons of cute little snowflake sprinkles. One sip of this sweet, icy-cool blend is all it takes to get you smiling from ear to ear – especially if you add it to your next mug of holiday eggnog. Could this tea be any more festive? We think not.

Oh, man. I’ve been craving a creamy peppermint tea, and this certainly hit the spot. I brewed it in oat milk on the stove, and added a shot of Candy Cane Matcha. So creamy, so minty, so delicious. I’m now out of CCC and nearly out of Candy Cane Matcha, which will have to change ASAP, as I want to drink this throughout the holiday season.

A cup full of candy cane peppermint bliss.
This cup of tea was smooth and had such a gentle but very full flavor. It almost tasted like a thin piece peppermint bark was melting on my tongue with every sip. The peppermint is stronger than the chocolate, but the white chocolate pieces give the tea a slightly lighter and cloudier appearance as well as a smooth creaminess. I found that the slower I took each sip, the stronger the peppermint was on my tongue, leaving a welcomed and flavorful lasting effect.
I could definitely see how some may find this too sweet, especially since it does have the white chocolate, sprinkles and the pieces of candy cane, however the sweetness was spot on for me. My critique would be that I would rather have more of the candy cane pieces instead of the sprinkles, just to boost the candy cane flavor a little, as well as to maintain the sweetness.
I discovered this tea on sale in late January, so I could not purchase a large quantity of loose leaf, just a few individual tea bags. I will most definitely be purchasing enough to last me through the whole year if/when it restocks this winter.
Flavors: Chocolate, Cream, Peppermint, Sweet, White Chocolate
Very candy tasting, reminds me of peppermint hot chocolate almost. The colour is very light, like if you added milk to it, which I suspect is from the white chocolate chips.
I’m hoping I don’t run out of it before it (if?) comes back!

This is another tea from my accidental Sips By box. I’ve had this one before in a Christmas collection from a few years ago, and I enjoyed it at the time. There are so many sprinkles and white chocolate chips in the bag that there’s almost no actual tea. They make the water super white and cloudy and sweet, but I still needed to add a little extra sugar to bring the flavor out. It’s just like a liquid peppermint candy. This is the sort of tea that some people hate, but I don’t mind one bit. The only think that I dislike is how weird and clumpy it becomes if you put it in the fridge. So definitely drink it all in one sitting! Based on flavor alone, this one is is very nice.
There is a whole lot of candy in this tea, which makes me feel a little uneasy about it. Is it really just candy canes crushed up and put on some tea? It tastes pretty good tho. The top of my tea is a little oily which is weird. It’s strange to have hot tea with a cooling sensation! The flavors are pretty well balanced, nothing strange in the finish. I would like to have a tea like this as a staple in my cupboard that doesn’t have a bunch of added sugar. Until then, I’ll enjoy this sample.
This tea is quite yummy! Black teas are my favourite, and peppermint is a fantastic Christmasy flavour that really gets me in the spirit! On its own this tea is fairly good, but I definitely prefer it with some milk or as a tea latte. Currently I’m enjoying it as a tea latte with eggnog, which, if you haven’t tried is incredibly delicious (you don’t need to add any additional sweetner). I haven’t really tasted any other candy cane flavoured teas, but this one will definitely remain a Christmas must-have for me!
