From DAVIDsTEA

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”

OH MY GOD! This is the BEST tea I have ever had. My all-time favorite. I wish it was available all year round. PLEASE make this available all year! My sister and I both love it and will gladly get others on board :)

Bought this one after the holidays last year during the Boxng Day sales. Have enjoyed it a couple of times throughout the year, and today’s review is also my sipdown. Santa’s Secret is a pleasant black tea with peppermint, vanilla and candy accents. There’s a nice creaminess and sweetness that makes it quite enjoyable without the need to add anything further to it. The little candy canes mixed in with the black tea and peppermint leaves are perfectly adorable.

I LOVE Santa’s Secret!

First off, this tea smells amazing. It smells like Christmas morning.

Second, this tea has mini candy canes.

I don’t need to say anymore.

A great mint-y tea to sip on all year round. The black tea compliments the mint very nicely in this one.

This one wasn’t too bad but there’s something about it that kind of irritates me…maybe it’s the fact that it tastes weak and I was expecting a stronger peppermint punch. Anyways, I’m glad I only got a bit-might just see if one of my friend’s wanna try it out. Pawn it off that way lol

This has now replaced the Bigelow peppermint tea that my mom used to keep regularly stocked in our cupboard. The ingredients list is minimal, but regardless, the tea’s description made me expect something special. You can just barely taste the hint of vanilla that’s promised, so I’m not sure if that is the ingredient that endears this mix to me or not. At least, if you like peppermint (despite the tone of this review, I do), then you should have no complaints.

Wonderful, the smell is intoxicating on its own, but then you taste it! As soon as I saw it was on sale online, I ordered 300g of it! So delicious…

Holidays TTB

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

I buy this every holiday season as I love the chocolatey-mint flavors. I do find the strength varies a bit from year to year and sometimes I end up a bit disappointed by weak, watery tea. However, I keep buying it as I can fix the problem by using more tea to get the strength I like.
