drank Santa's Secret by DAVIDsTEA
450 tasting notes

I made this in my new timolino to take to work today, and I’m nearly done drinking it already. I suppose that says something about my liking the tea, and I do, in a vague and generic sense. It just seems like a very basic, black mint tea, and I was hoping I’d like it more than I do. I think I’ll easily finish my sample packet, but this won’t be a restock (it’s just as well that I’m not in love with a tea that’s only available seasonally, anyway). I actually prefer white chocolate frost, which is actually less likely to make a repeat appearance next year, so there’s that.

But I placed my first Harneys order!! yeah!!

I prefer white chocolate frost because it’s more unique. I think Della Terra has a tea that’s similar to Santa’s Secret – Peppermint Bark (http://steepster.com/teas/della-terra-teas/34440-peppermint-bark). So there are options for peppermint chocolate teas. I haven’t found as many like White Chocolate Frost, although I do like Teavana’s version too!

Yes, I think you’re right. The white chocolate and peppermint combination is unique, and DT’s version is quite delicious!

Ooo oo oo! What’d you get from Harneys?

keychange

4 oz (!) tins of: rose-scented, Queen Catherine, Boston blend, fruits d’alstace, and hot cinnamon spice! I’m so excited!

Nxtdoor

No Florence? No soho blend? Gasp :)

Cavocorax

Those are great choices! (Well, I haven’t had rose-scented, but I like the rest).

Hahaha thanks cavo! I love floral tea, so I’m hoping to love rose-scented. And nxtdoor, nope, neither of those LOL. They’re chocolate-oriented if I remember correctly? I’m surprisingly not a huge chocolate fan haha.

Bio

Well, it’s been slightly over six months since I’ve joined steepster, and I can’t say enough wonderful things about this community. Like many of you, I began my foray into the world of loose-leaf tea by discovering David’s Tea, and although I’ve ventured out and have discovered many other companies that I’m extremely fond of, there are still many of David’s teas that I hold close to my heart and I will always appreciate it as a starting point for my journey.

As for my preferences, I tend to prefer bold black tea, flavoured and unflavoured alike, and I almost always take my blacks with cream and sugar. This isn’t to say that I don’t enjoy a good, flavoured white though, and I’m slowly making my way through the incredibly confusing world of oolongs and greens. I am also not a fan of rooibos, although I am starting to suspect green rooibos may be ok, but you know how it is: when you’ve decided you detest a certain ingredient, you’ll notice it everywhere—perhaps even where it doesn’t exist!

Things other than tea: I’m engaged to be married to my best friend, and feel like the richest woman on the planet because of it. I am also a veracious reader, and I also happen to have an obsession with fragrances, and have amassed quite a collection, although it pales in comparison to some collections out there! As a result of this obsession, I also follow several fragrance blogs, and am always up for a chat about scent. I’m also almost completely blind, and this does indeed mean that I come complete with a guide dog, who unlike me, hales from the sunny California campus of Guide dogs for the Blind. I think I’ve rambled on long enough, but if there’s anything you’d like to know or if you just feel like chatting to someone, please don’t hesitate to send me a message.
