I am an Influenster and recently I received the opportunity to participate in a new VoxBox program. The latest VoxBox that I received was the Frosty VoxBox. I received the box with all the products inside of it free from Influenster for testing and review purposes. You can see my Frosty VoxBox post here. One of the items I received in my box was Celestial Seasonings Candy Cane Lane Tea.
I love peppermint teas however, I had never tried Celestial Seasonings Candy Cane Lane Tea before so I was happy to give it a try. In my box, I received a sample package that contained two tea bags inside. When I first opened it up, I immediately smelled the peppermint/candy cane. It was a really strong peppermint smell and it smells to good. These teabags don’t have those string tabs which I thought was different. I’m used to tea bags having those. Anyway, one tea bag for an 8oz cup of hot water.
Get your up of water ready. I heat my cup of water in the microwave or I just get hot water out of my Keurig machine. Then just drop in a tea bag. Stir it around in the water. I left mine sit for about 5 minutes and then with spoons squeezed the tea bag over my cup before tossing it. The tea smells really, really good. This is green tea so it is a little different than regular black tea. I don’t drink a whole lot of green tea so I was really curious about how it was going to taste.
The tea is a really great flavor although I still prefer black teas. I could taste just a very slight hint of orange. The peppermint flavor to the tea was really nice however, I wish it had a stronger peppermint taste. You can definitely taste the peppermint, it’s just not very strong. I tasted the peppermint more as an aftertaste than anything. It was really nice though because I could feel the flavor (I know, it sounds weird to say it that way, just not sure how to describe it) going down my throat. I also had a stuffy nose the first time I had some and it actually helped clear it up for a bit.
It’s a really nice tasting tea even though I wish it had more candy cane flavor to it. Other than that, I really like it.
