I think I may be the last to try this, and if I hadn’t tried Santa’s Secret first, I probably would have enjoyed it much more. But I have to disagree with the description on the website; the world’s best chocolate tea it is not (nor is it better than an actual dessert. Unless we’re talking about a mediocre dessert). It’s a sweet minty black, but I’m not getting much chocolate or any hint of peppercorns.

I enjoyed my rendez-vous with it, but I just don’t see a future together. Santa has a creamier flavor and a certain je ne sais quoi that still has my heart when it comes to minty blacks (and now that I’m moving away from highly flavored teas, I only want to keep the super awesome ones in my permanent stash). Thanks whatshesaid for the chance to finally try it!

Bio

I recently discovered loose leaf after a long and uninspiring relationship with teabags. I’ve been in love ever since (sorry bags, I just don’t feel that spark anymore).

Food is a passion for me and my love of scents and flavors has translated into an excitement for trying new teas. I’m trying to expand my palate with all different types, and currently my favorites are oolongs and greens.
