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”

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

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!

Very tasty and a great breakfast tea. No wonder Santa was able to deliver all his gifts in one night!

I am in love. It’s because of this tea that I’m beginning to enjoy peppermint teas in general. For me, the sweetness of the candy cane sprinkles offset the chill of the mint in a way that reminds me of a peppermint mocha (without the calories or milk-induced stomach ache). And what could be more fun this year than a tea filled with tiny candy canes?

I am not a tea connoisseur, being a bit new to tea drinking. I live in North Dakota USA, which is not what you would call a tea drinker’s region. Here, when you ask people what kind of tea they drink, most of them will say Lipton’s. I think that pretty much says everything about tea in North Dakota.
So, when some friends from Winnipeg Manitoba Canada gave me a tea assortment from David’s Tea, I was hooked. Santa’s Secret was the first of the teas I tried. I really liked it! No bitter after taste, and it had those cute little candy canes in it. So far this is one of my favorite teas.

Smells like the holidays! Actually, christmas cookies or soemthing. Very strong peppermint and vanilla. Really nice black tea, and is great on its own without any added sugar or milk. Would definitely buy this one again.

Why is it that when I finally have a day off and decide to try to sip down some of my teas, the ones in my “drink me first” box don’t look appealing? Instead I reached for this tasty treat this morning. I do add two packets of Stevia to it, that’s just me though. It has a smooth, sort of coffee-like (maybe) taste to it. I don’t get much mint but overall I do enjoy this one.

Counting on the caffeine to give me the kick I need to make the most out of this chilly day off.

I decided to get my hands on a collectable tin of this.
Darn it! I’ve messed up another one! I really need to start standing and waiting for the tea to steep… the black tea base is too overpowering for the gentle vanilla and mint flavors. Oi vey. Well, for what it is right now it’s still not too bad, still drinkable.

I didn’t enjoy this tea. It didn’t have any mint flavor of really any flavor at all beyond plain black tea. It wasn’t bad, but it didn’t taste good either, nor as it claimed to taste.
