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”

So I have to be honest… I needed to get to a certain monetary amount in order to get the Timolino and this tea that came along with the ornament set helped me get there.

It has a smooth, flavorful texture. Surprisingly the peppermint isn’t as strong as I thought it would be. It’s more of an after taste that leaves you with a bit of a clean feeling. The tea base seems like it would be a bit woodsy. But with the added ingredients it’s creamy. If Santa drank tea this is probably what he would drink.

This is one of my favorite black teas so far.

This tea did not prove to be a distraction and is the perfect companion for a cozy reading day, whether it is warm or cold outside.

Books recommended for this tea:

The Hours by Michael Cunningham, After the Quake by Haruki Murakami, Fool by Christopher Moore.

This is my second tea from Davids and, so far so good. Honestly, I am comparing this to Teavana’s White Chocolate Peppermint. Sorry, not as enjoyable, but still quite pleasant. I sweetened it with equal. I don’t plan on stocking up on this one, but it was enjoyable.

I’m not as OMG over this blend as a lot of people seem to be, but it is definitely a nice tea to have around the holidays/the winter months. I have a little bit of this left from my Holiday Collection, but I’m not going to be rushing out to stock up – there are plenty of other mint teas out there to tide me over until when/if thsi comes back next year.

Day 24 of the advent calendar. I’m sitting here on Christmas Eve sipping away at a mug of this tea and watching Downton Abbey on Netfix. I like how smooth this tea is. A creamy mix of mint and vanilla. It’s simple and comforting. I’m glad I bought over 100 grams of it, so I shouldn’t run out any time soon. This is one that I can see myself cozying up to all winter long.

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?

Brewed up a pot of this after the green tea I didn’t care for. This is one of my favorite black teas! Smooth with just a hint of sweetness from the teensy candy canes. I ordered 100 grams of this fall/early winter because it’s a seasonal tea and I know I enjoy it. This one is always a winner for me!

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.

Added sugar to this one again. I find this to be a very tasty morning treat :) I absolutely love mint teas and this one isn’t overpowering so it’s nice to wake up with. It’s also kind of soft, if I can use that word to describe tea, and creamy. It’s like someone is wrapping a blanket around me.

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.
