Taster’s Review:

After having tried the Candy Cane Iced Black Tea from SBT last year and loving it, I had really high expectations for this white tea version.  Unfortunately, it fell a little short of the expectations I had.

Oh, this is still a really tasty iced tea.  It’s just not as amazing as I remember the black tea version.  Then again, it could be that my expectations were too high, so this was not going to reach those heights.

But this is – as I said – quite tasty.  The white tea is light and I like the crisp, refreshing flavor.  It has a sweet flavor that’s airy and hay-like and very fresh tasting.

This fresh taste melds well with the cool notes of the minty candy cane flavor.  It’s not just “minty” – there is a light sweetness in there too so this tastes more like a white tea flavored with a candy cane than it does a white tea flavored with peppermint.  There are hints of vanilla and a soft, almost ‘candy-like’ sweetness in there.  I like that I’m getting this really delicious sweetness but it isn’t too sweet.

It’s a tasty tea.  That said, if I’m going to be shopping for a candy cane iced tea, I’d probably be putting the black tea version in my cart before I’d grab the white tea version.
