I was thinking how nice it would be to include candy canes in this adorable carrying case for these teas and then I DID find a couple candy canes on the bottom! How sweet. A tin of some rock sugar that Angry sells would have been awesome too. :D This is an awesome holiday type blend. I have had it from another tea company before but it’s a nice tea to revisit. The honey is accurate as there is a lovely honey-like flavor permeating throughout the cup. There wasn’t much on the nuttiness, though I did have at least one almond slice and pistachio in my infuser. I was surprised to see coconut and chrysanthemum on the ingredient list as they don’t come into play here at all. The honey black tea combo is fantastic though. Overall it’s a unique cup of tea that I’m happy to have found in the Advent calendar.
