Candy Cane Lane Tea


Normally, I wouldn't be buying a "Holiday Tea" in October, but normally, I wouldn't have just read that this tea can be hard to find, and thus been all antsy that I might not be able to find said tea around the holidays.

A review I read recently had me hankering for some of Celestial Seasonings' Candy Cane Lane tea (or "candy cane lane," since for some reason they aren't into capitalization over at CS). The reviewer talked about stocking up on this tea, which is a decaffeinated green tea, for one of her kids. What most intrigued me was that she said you couldn't tell from tasting it that this is a green tea at all.

Well, I'm always eager to find a tastier green tea, not being a huge fan of green tea's grassy taste, so I tried a box of this tea this week, and I have to say it is great! This is my new favorite settling-in-for-the-evening tea, and the fact it's decaffeinated makes it perfect for late night sipping. So please forgive me for rushing the holidays, but I just wanted to be sure that you, like me, know to look for this tea *early* if you are so inclined!

This stuff is awesome-I'm still hoarding a partial box from last year. I'm so glad to know it will be available this year. I'm not a huge fan of green tea, but I love this one.

The Candy Cane Lane tea sounds good. I need some decaffeinated tea for late in the evening and I'll look for it today. Thanks.

Thanks for the "heads-up". I will look for it.

Hmmm...very interesting! I'm not a big fan of candy canes in general, so maybe the tea version is better.

Would you believe I am still hoarding my last box that I bought last Christmas?

It is one of my all time favorites. I not only love it for myself but it's inexpensive enough I put it in a few gift baskets, along with homemade goodies, that I make for friends.
