It smells like dark chocolate and warms like chillies – what more could you ask for on a cold winter day? The warm, sweet, chocolatey aroma is right at home in this black tea. The taste is perfect on its own, so there’s no need to add sugar or milk. This tea is the ultimate warm-up and an instant favourite of mine.
I really love this tea. As others have mentioned this tea has licorice in it which is exactly what does it for me. Often I find with licorice teas the licorice is too front and centre and it becomes overwhelmingly sweet, but in this case it really is a great finishing note and addition to a great tea that I use on a stressful afternoon, or to help with allergies, coughs and colds.
After reading another tasting note that said that this gets better the longer it steeps, I tried it out again in my big glass teapot. This isn’t a very dark black tea, and similarly the taste is very light. The lime is zingy, but not overpowering. I enjoyed the hint of coconut, which was much softer than the buttered rum I had this morning.
There’s nothing bitter about this tea, so it’s nice to slowly sip at without worrying about oversteeping it. Even as it got cold it was still tasty, so I’m sure it would be lovely iced. Definitely a go-to for my long paper writing sessions!
That’s fucking awesome! I usually didn’t really takes the herbal tea seriously, but now… God damn! That’s the spring in da mouth!
The scent was really overwhelming but the taste was smoottth yeah, seriously a smooth grapefruit! What about the color? It’s really vivid! Finaly, for the last little smash, there the citrus!
I was hit with one of those awful mutant cold viruses just as the new year approached. It got to the point where my throat was on fire, I could barely breathe and had no energy. So I mustered up all the energy I could and went with my cousin to David’s Tea to see what stuff they had for sickness. The Cold Remedy tea was recommended and my god is it delicious. I love love love ginger tea and the combination with lemon was very soothing. After drinking about 2 cups a day for 3 days, I began to feel significantly better!
Now I know this tea is “technically” a Christmas tea, the name being Santa’s Secret and all, but I’d like to dispute this. I stocked up on this deliciously sweet blend during the holiday season after discovering how tasty it was, but I’ve already blown through my entire stash, leaving a sad and empty tin on my shelf where Santa’s Secret once sat! I’m a big fan of peppermint teas in general, which gives me a bit of a bias on this tea review, but the addition of orange peel, cinnamon and clove to this black tea gives it a kick worth raving about. I like to steep it till it’s quite dark, and then add a bit of raw cane sugar and some vanilla soy milk to top it off; it also makes a delicious latte. Even if you’re not a huge mint fan, you may still want to give this one a try: after all, who can say no to a tea with miniature candy canes floating around in it?
I don’t think I have ever managed to finish a cup of this tea. I love the taste, but it knocks me out! It’s a mystery because I’ve had lavender in tea before. And I’m not even a fan of coconut but somehow in this tea it just works for me. There is just something about this tea that relaxes me right to sleep and I wake up to a half full cup of cold tea.
I wasn’t expecting much from this tea mostly because I am not a big lavender fan. The girl at David’s Tea convinced me that I would love it, so I bought it. First sip… not bad I must admit, even though it smells like lavender, it definitely takes more like coconut and boy do I love coconut! It is tasty!
Hm, this one is not quite right this morning. Maybe I still have mouthwash taste going on from brushing my teeth, but it’s been a while. It’s surprisingly oversweet at the end of the sip, with the tartness of the hibiscus coming in right away but then fading off. Still yummy, but not my best mug of it. Maybe because it’s been steeping for an hour in my travel mug, but I do that often. Hm.
Upping the rating. Had a travel mug full this morning to start my work day. The sweetness of the fruits and berries mixed with the tart hibiscus is making my mouth dance. I think of it more as a summer tea than a spring tea, but that’s semantics. Mostly I just think of it as a delicious delight.
I don’t know anything about goji berries, but there is one really sweet juicy flavour, that I assume must be goji, since I don’t remember having it in any other tea. My only qualm with this tea is that it’s quite heavy, and therefore on the more expensive side. For now, it’s a lovely treat, and likely to be cycled with my regulars for take to work tisanes.
200th tasting note, brand new tea. Obviously the tea buying ban was temporarily lifted today. We had planned to go to Sawadee tea house, but ended up at David’s instead. The beau smelled this one and proclaimed we had to have it – and now we do!
Steeped a cup this evening. My tastes are still a little off (thank you, cold…) but I really enjoyed it. The hibiscus got a little too dominant for me, but paying better attention to the steep would really help with that. A dob of honey would probably do it too.
The smell is intoxicating, and the taste is delicious. Wish the hibiscus would back off a little bit, but it’s not too over-whelming. I found it on the middle of the sip, if that makes sense. Will try again soon when taste buds are re-aligned.
