drank Santa's Secret by DAVIDsTEA
75 tasting notes

After the disaster that was Cherry Potion, and considering that every new tea I try these days fails to please, I decided to brew up a favorite: Santa’s Secret. BUT, for the first time ever, decided to try and do it as a latté!

(Side-note: I add milk to all straight black teas, and chamomile, but have never done the heated and foamed up milk additive.)

Someone on Steepster or on the DT FB page mentioned how she uses a mason jar and a microwave to get some foamy milk. I am surprised how well that works! The foam is lasting as long as any from my cappuccino’s at the coffee shop, huh…

As for the tea itself? It’s hard to get used to something looking like a rich moka or café latté actually being a thin tea – I keep expecting it to have more consistency. And because i never add anything to my Santa’s Secret, I’m not used to the watered-down flavour. But, I think it’s interesting, and is something I will tinker with until I get just right .
