Made a big cup of this in my new DavidsTea mason jar…holy cow this sucker is huge! But onto the tea. I agree with the other reviewers who said it’s like a creamier Read My Lips, but it doesn’t have the chocolate aspect, which makes me very happy. The girl in store told me it tastes like Santa’s Secret, which it does…to a point. The mint is more…minty than Santa’s Secret, and it doesn’t seem to have the same vanilla creaminess. So I guess it’s more creamy than Read My Lips but less creamy than Santa’s Secret. I only get the faintest hint of coconut. Overall, I love it and if I ever run out of Santa’s Secret, I’m glad to know I can fall back on this. However, I won’t be stocking up any time soon, because I already have so many teas that are so similar (Read My Lips, Santa’s Secret, Cocomint, to name a few)

I smelled it in the store and was a little underwhelmed – it just didn’t seem like anything special to me. Glad you liked it though, I might just give it a try next time!

I’m actually kind of surprised they even came out with this one, since you’re right, they already have quite a few similar ones.

Yvonne, I’m a sucker for mint, I had to try it, but like Fjellrev said, there’s already quite a few similar ones in their line up. Still, I did enjoy it! It’ll be no hardship to drink what I have.

I’m personally not overly crazy about mint, and would rather just keep Bigelow’s Mint Medley around the house because I grew up with that, so it’s got a comfy feeling.

I have tons of tummy troubles, so having a variety of mint teas on hand helps keep me sane. I love food but food doesn’t love me LOL

I don’t know you at all, but saw you have dT’s mason jar, and I already feel as though we’re kindred spirits because how can’t you love that thing. Now I’m also going to try this tea.

XD I love it! But I would warn everybody not to try a new tea in it because if you don’t like it, you’ve got three cups of it, ha! But it’s even edging out my elephant perfect mugs as my favorite mug. So much love for it!

My tastes in tea have changed, so I should update this as well. I find myself leaning more towards rooibos and herbals, if only for their great ability to chill in my travel mug for hours and not get weird on me. When I have time to properly brew a cuppa, I lean towards white teas (which I only steep for 30 seconds) and black teas (which only get 2-3 minutes from me). I cannot stand green teas, they’re too fiddly for my tastes. Oolongs are great, but a bit fiddly as well. However, I love watching oolongs open up in my looseleaf brewer. I’m slowly discovering mates and falling for them…there are many I look forward to trying!

So…yeah. That’s me and my tea!
