Kids have loved candy canes for a long, long time. According to legend, the peppermint variety most associated with the holidays was conceived in 1670 by the choirmaster of Cologne Cathedral. Looking for a way to quiet children down during long church services, he asked a local confectioner to create the sweet peppery sticks as a sort of pacifier.
The candy was a hit. Soon candy canes could be found in sweet shops throughout Europe, making their way to North America sometime in the early 19th century.
These days, no Christmas Tree is complete without at least a good handful of red and white canes hanging from the boughs, waiting to be savored on Christmas morning. And now, thanks to Candy Cane Rush Black Tea, you've got the perfect beverage to pair with them.
Candy Cane Rush is made with real pieces of candy for a real blast of sweet mint. Serve this tea with a candy cane as a stir stick - Santa would approve. Tastes like Christmas morning!
