Today is one of those workdays where my brain decided to check out and leave me to my own devices (which usually results in me spending too much time wondering if anyone will notice if I go nap in my car). I needed a tasty pick-me-up to distract me from this terrible idea. I know the holiday season has long passed, but there’s just something magical about this tea that makes me continue to crave it. It has a mellow black tea base and a minty flavor, but more like a creamy vanilla mint with a hint of something richer. Caramel? Chocolate? I just can’t figure it out (maybe that’s why they call it a secret. Even the ingredients list is pretty tight-lipped). Anyway, whatever it is, it’s delicious. I was so sad when I finished that I continued to sniff my empty mug for the next half hour in an attempt to extend the experience. Damn, Santa did good!
