Drink Me: Adagio, Candy Cane

I placed an order with Adagio a few weeks ago hoping to try some of their holiday flavors. The first of these was Candy Cane.

From the package, Candy Cane is black tea with candy cane pieces and peppermint leaves.

It is available in a variety of sizes: sample for $2, 3oz for $7 and 1lb (16oz) for $19.

When I opened the package, this tea smelled exactly like candy canes and I could see a few hints of red pieces in the blend.  Once brewed I got more of the black tea and peppermint leaf aroma.  I think I might have preferred a purely peppermint tea (as opposed to the black tea blend) but it did have a nice cooling peppermint flavor.

  1. I was just looking at Adagio’s “Christmas Cookies” collection online – have you tried any of those?
