We have, I believe, three tins of this throughout our house. None of them are full – they are all nearly empty, waiting for November to roll around so we can restock.
This minty mixture is soooo nice – it’s a lighter, sweeter mint than you’ll find from a Marakesh Mint tea, which is perfect for a pepperminty experience in the wintertime, but with the same soothing effects. The little candy cane candies don’t add any flavour (in fact, you’ll probably never see them biodegrade while in your teapot) but they add to the festive charm of this tea. Definitely a lovely touch for the mint-lover, a great after-dinner tea, and just so perfect for a cold day when you want to be reminded that something sweet is just around the corner! My boyfriend is in absolute love with this tea, and I blame him that we’re always out – he just brews pot after pot after pot (he uses a small pot and never re-steeps!) and it drives me a little nuts, but I swear I’ve never seen him love a tea quite as much as he love’s Santa’s Secret!
