'Twas the Friday before Christmas, and all through the house ... there was no Celestial Seasonings Candy Cane Lane tea, because I hadn't seen any this season. At all. Anywhere. And I'd looked. I could order it online, but the shipping cost as much as the tea and I just didn't want it *that* badly. And then, in a surprise find on the very eve of Christmas Eve, I nabbed the very last box at a Whole Foods store in Atlanta! This super minty green tea has quite a following and can be hard to find, as I learned the past two years.
My pink glass teacup and saucer with the elegant scalloped details was a surprise gift from Darlene of The Tea Enthusiast's Scrapbook in honor of the publication of my book last month! What a lovely and thoughtful gift—and one I have used to sip away at that box of Candy Cane Lane tea.
My friend Deberah gave me a box of old-fashioned stick peppermint for Christmas, and I made a cup of the Candy Cane Lane tea extra peppermint-y with the addition of a stick. Are you a fan of Candy Cane Lane tea? If so, did you find any this year, and where? I'd love to know!
