drank Santa's Secret by DAVIDsTEA
1350 tasting notes

I adore this tea, so what better way to test my travel press a second time than with this one I’ve been hoarding since the end of February. Minty and sweet….yum. My favorite hot cocoa is a candy cane white cocoa, and this reminds me of that, but with the added goodness of tea! I had this yesterday on our way downtown to celebrate our anniversary and we had an unintentional tea crawl, hitting up four tea shops by the time we were done.

Oh, and remember that interview I had Saturday? Well yesterday I was called to schedule a second interview, which is today! squee Wish me luck again, dear friends!

Good Luck. And Happy Anniversary. I am looking forward to the Christmas Teas from Davids since I only found them in the spring.

Thanks and thanks! I found them right as they were being discontinued, so I have a small bit of each. But I’m telling you, if this comes back, I am buying a wall tin of the stuff.

Ah, tea. My love for you is ever changing. At my last update, I was all about the rooibos and now I hardly drink it. I only occasionally had an oolong and now I have one just about every day. I’ve learned the art of resteeping and coldbrewing and kombucha. I have a lovely little tea pet named…well, I haven’t decided on a name for him yet. I also have four live pets, a tabby cat named Rosabella Francis (Bella for short), a ginger cat named Orange Julius Pekoe (Pekoe), a white and grey cat named Earl Jean Grey (Earlie), and a red foot tortoise named Da Hong Pao (Pao). So if you see me referring to my girls, I don’t have kids, just animals.

As for tea, I love oolongs, herbals, and black tea. Since I am no longer working, I no longer feel the constant need for a mate energy boost, though I do still reach for it from time to time. I also drink less matcha, though I do throw a spoonful or two in when I’m making smoothies. Most of my tea I drink coldbrewed, and since I discovered coldbrewed rooibos was giving me headaches, I’m drinking less and less of it. Straight pu-erh is not a thing I enjoy, but there are a few flavored blends I like. Greens are still too finicky for me to bother with hot, but they make great cold brews.

I am by no means a tea purist. I greatly enjoy flavored teas and I put sugar in all of my teas. It’s just how I do.

I think I’m going to name my tea pet Mr. Turtle. Even though he’s a tortoise.
