Product Review: Celestial Seasonings tea in Candy Cane Lane flavor (Influenster Frosty Voxbox)

Through the Frosty Voxbox I was introduced to Candy Cane Lane green tea by Celestial Seasonings. The flavored green tea is a mix of peppermint, but also contains vanilla and hints of cinnamon - recreating the true candy cane flavor in a warm cup of tea. I just love the flavor because to me it seems like a sweet peppermints flavor. While I occasionally drink peppermint tea, the flavor is not one of my favorites and I always need to add sugar to sweeten it because otherwise the tea seems really bitter to me. Candy Cane Lane by Celestial Seasonings is naturally sweet, I assume due to the addition of vanilla flavor and the hint of cinnamon also adds more complexity that takes the bitterness out of the usual peppermint flavor.

Overall, I like seasonal flavors and the Candy Cane Lane green tea by Celestial Seasonings is definitely one flavor to watch and since I was given a coupon with my Voxbox, I may just have to get the whole box of tea at my next visit to the store.
