Celestial Seasonings Candy Cane Lane Decaf Green Tea - Influenster Product Review


**all items received free from Influenster for review/testing purposes

Tea time anyone?  Another product in my Influenster FrostyVoxBox was this 2-pack of Celestial Seasonings Candy Cane Lane Green Tea (decaffeinated).  YUM!!! I wish that a whole box had been provided, it was that good to my taste buds.  
I find the flavor of plain green tea to be mild overall so the "pep" of the Candy Cane flavor made this one perfect for my taste.  I rarely add any sweetener to my teas, unless it's plain black tea, and this was no exception to my rule.  The candy cane flavor was the perfect amount of peppermint-y sweetness.  Even when I did my normal tea brewing of leaving the bag in the cup until I've drank every last drop, it was still just the right amount of peppermint flavor.  I really liked that this didn't have any caffeine in it so I could drink it shortly before bed and not be kept "tired-awake" like some caffeinated beverages can do to me close to bedtime.  Green tea is supposed to be good for the body so it was my perfect combo of peppermint goodness and beneficial green tea.

The ingredients of Candy Cane Lane are: peppermint, decaffeinated green tea, orange peel, natural vanilla and mint flavors with other natural flavors, cinnamon, milk thistle, blackberry leaves, roasted carob, roasted chicory and vanilla bean.  If you're concerned about gluten in your diet, this states it is gluten free.

The only downside to this sample, besides the size, was that this particular blend is a Holiday Tea so as much as I've been searching for it the past month, I haven't been able to find it.  I sure hope it comes out again next winter season.  I know that as soon as I spot this next winter season (provided it returns), I'm grabbing a box (or 2).

What's your favorite tea flavor?
