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!

Sample from Zach S.

There was some of this in the Monthly TTB club box, so I decided to try the sample and see what I thought of it. It’s good. It tastes like creamy peppermint candy. It’s a bit on the artificial end, but I don’t mind that since it’s a candy flavor. It’s tasty, but I don’t know if it’s a tea I would drink often, so I will pass it along to the next person. I wonder if there’s an herbal version of this?

I finally tried this today at a party and it was actually really lovely (I’d been pretty disinterested in the winter collection.) A really nice balance of vanilla and mint on a pleasant black base.

I don’t need this in my cupboard but I can see why so many people like it.

Flavors: Creamy, Mint, Vanilla


Although I did not have any this winter, I do like this one a lot. I don’t tend to like a lot of mint teas, but this one works for me.


I have a bunch of this in my cupboard, but it’s so happy and Christmas-like that it almost feels wrong to drink it in March.

This is my go-to decadent morning tea. It is on sale right now, and I have had to restrain myself from overstocking, reminded that I have too much of some former “go-tos.” It is not so much that I am fickle as that I am new to loose leaf tea… so many wonders to discover. :) Plus I now have to limit my caffeine to about one cup per day (re steeping doesn’t count, though, right?), which heightens the importance of the morning choice…

I never regret Santa’s Secret. With a little cream, it is like a peppermint vanilla cup of hot chocolate, but better because it’s tea! Highly recommend for lovers of flavored blacks.

Flavors: Chocolate, Peppermint, Vanilla

I absolutely love this tea! A perfect blend of vanilla and black tea with a hint of peppermint. I crave this tea if I haven’t had it in a few days.

This smells so much like chocolate that I’m really surprised that it’s not in the ingredients list! My coworkers agreed when I brewed it at work today.

This tea is really delicious, the balance of peppermint and black tea is very good.
