Wow! This tea is the one for me. I’m out, so I certainly hope it makes an appearance next Christmas.

Ever wonder how Santa manages to deliver all those presents in just one night? Well here’s the hush-hush formula. He uses a special combination of Chinese black tea, peppermint leaves and spices – all sprinkled with real little candy canes. It’s both energizing and remarkably soothing. All Santa needs is one cup and his motto changes from “ho ho ho” to “go go go”

I have to say I got attracted by the little candy canes we find it the tea mixture ! I love black tea, but this minty/candy cane flavour really adds a special ring to this tea. Best for cookie time/after dinner tea, every time you’re wondering with tea to drink, you just smell it and you’re done : you have to drink it ;) Be careful : highly addictive!
Okay, so somehow or another I ended up with a full David’s Tea tin of Santa’s Secret (a red tin, if y’all are curious).
So, after having countless cups of this tea hot and as a latte, I decided to see if cold steeping it would be a nice change.
Yes! SO. FREAKING. TASTY! I find the peppermint notes are much stronger and I get the caffeine without worrying if I’ve oversteeped it. (I find this tea is a bit hit of miss with my 4-5 min steeping time when it’s hot).
I made a pitcher of it. I left it overnight in the fridge, probably 12-13 hours altogether, and it was light and minty. I totally recommend this tea cold steeped. It’s still tasty hot, but I don’t like it as much.
Flavors: Peppermint, Sweet
A great morning tea with the peppermint and slight vanilla flavor that adds a touch of creaminess to your cup. Truly lovely on a cold morning (I drank this every morning in the winter). I can’t wait till winter for them to bring it back x3 I have only had this hot, I feel like it might be a bit strange iced xD maybe I’ll try it someday. FOR SCIENCE!
