The Christmas candy cane allegedly began in 1670 when a Cologne, Germany choirmaster, looking to quiet his young singers during mass, bent white sugar candies into shepherds’ canes for the children to savor. It wasn’t until 1920 that the candies became a holiday favorite when U.S. candy maker, Bob McCormack, added peppermint flavor and red-and-white stripes. He first made them as a holiday treat for his friends and family hand-bending each candy. Luckily, his brother-in-law, Gregory Keller, designed a machine to enable mass production, launching Bob’s Candies and the candy cane became an international holiday tree decoration and sweet treat.

Ask a question about candy cane and have the Adagio Teas community offer feedback.
Is there coconut in this tea? It has a strong perfume of coconut (or vanilla?) and I'm allergic so I need to know the answer before I can drink it.

Is this sold all year long, or just during the holiday season? It's my new favorite tea, and I need to know whether to stockpile enough for the year.
