SO…I was at Davids again today, with my friend. She opted for the Merry Cranberry, and since I know I don’t like Sleigh Ride that much, I opted to try Santa’s Secret. I’ve always been a bit leery of mint teas, because I tend to find them either too medicinal, or I find them too cooling and refreshing to drink in winter (except for medicinally). But this tea, as a black base, holds the mint in balance, I think. It feels warming but refreshing, but not in a BRRR sort of way. Maybe the soy milk added then zen-like balance, I dunno.
I think I can say, I actually kinda like this. For a minty tea. I don’t know if I will get this one or not, but I think I might get some while it is available, and it will be a nice alternate to the very warming and comforting teas I have like Chocolate Orange or Alpine Punch, or one of the seasonal chai blends. I think that there could be a place for this on my tea wall.
