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!
I didn’t pick any of this up around Christmas time because I really disliked Adagio’s Candy Cane and figured this would be similar. But this one is actually quite good and kind of a more caffeinated, less chocolatey version of Tea Guys’ Peppermint Chocolate Vanilla. It’d probably be fantastic with chocolate chip cookies.
It’s minty, but similar to Andes candies, the mint doesn’t take over, there’s some creamy notes to it and it’s comforting in a strange way. It really enjoy this one because it’s actually blended quite well and you don’t get the whole picture in one sip.
Flavors: Cream, Mint
Advent Calendar catch up!
While drinking this, it has that familiar DAVIDs Tea mint that I’ve never been fond of. I still don’t know what it is about it; I’m sure I’ve had other brands of mint tea that don’t make me feel this way. HOWEVER, the aftertaste of this is a delicious, sweet, creamy mint that I’m absolutely in love with. Plus there seems to be a hint of dark chocolate! It was so good, I was tempted to buy more (like I need more tea right now). In hind sight, it probably wasn’t THAT good, but it is by far the best mint-flavoured tea I’ve had from DAVIDs.
Flavors: Creamy, Dark Chocolate, Mint, Sweet
Since I came across this tea, I drink it every Christmas. With the black tea in it, it gives me a little kick of caffeine I need to get through winter afternoon slumps. I’m also a sucker for the peppermint and sweet little candy canes.
This wasn’t everything I was hoping it to be. Maybe I let the hype get to me and high expectations, but I found this tea to be weaker than I would have liked. The black tea just didn’t live up to the peppermint. I will say, the peppermint sprinkles were incredibly adorable.
Flavors: Peppermint, Smoke, Smooth
My favorite Christmas tea! At first, I was tired of the black tea + mint combination since I have a few … but this one is by far my favorite!
What makes this tea more unique (and Christmas-y) is that it’s not so much mint as candy cane peppermint in this tea. It’s a sweeter (and I guess technically more artificial flavor since candy canes don’t taste at all like real organic mint) tea but definitely one of my favorites.
The tea smells like a forest after it rains, but with sweet notes of mint within.
I add milk and sugar to my teas.
The tea was very nice. It was smooth and creamy, not astringent or bitter in any way. The vanilla was soft and the peppermint wasn’t overpowering. It was a nice mix of both.
