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”

This is a delightfully minty tea, with sugar it is just like candy. It doesn’t get 100 because I feel it’s a tad weak at the recommended amount. Upon upping the loose tea though it is just bursting with candy cane flavour! Christmas here I come!

This is a much better option than DavidsTea Snow Day. It’s a blend of black tea, a bit of peppermint leaves and some vanilla as well. The scent is nice; not overwhelming or artificial. And it tastes exactly like what it is. The hint of vanilla is nice. The peppermint is fairy subtle but I plan to add some peppermint leaves of my own in the future to heighten the minty taste a bit.

This is an old sample from Shmiracles. Thank you! Why I haven’t tried it till now, I couldn’t tell you. Samples have a way of getting lost in my cupboard after a few months.

The brewed tea aroma is peppermint, sugar, and cream. Despite its age, this tea is deliciously minty! Wow, this is really incredible! It’s got a great balance of mint and vanilla. Add vanilla and cream flavors to just about anything and I’m sold! This is no exception. Plus, it’s got those cute little candy canes. :)

Mmm mmm! I am really enjoying this. I know it’s late to be drinking black tea, but this is hitting the spot. There’s a bit of an odd aftertaste that’s not too great, but the main flavor is so delicious that I think I’m going to pick up some more this holiday season!

“Eatdown”! No cupboard decrease, because I didn’t add it though.

This review is for the Santa’s Secret Infused White Chocolate Bar released by DAVIDsTEA for the holidays!

I’m not a fan of the tea plain; to be perfectly honest I just find it really flat as far as mint black teas go (or mint teas in general). However, I adore white chocolate so I had to give this a try. To be fair it’s quite delicious but basically it’s just a thicker white peppermint bark, with little ground up bits of black tea in it. I wont buy it again but I TOTALLY enjoyed gobbling it up in one sitting.


I actually liked this better as a chocolate bar too!

I love chocolate teas and peppermint teas alike, but all I could taste with this tea is watered-down mildly-flavoured candy…

My brother’s girlfriend got a package of this for me for Christmas (I opened it Christmas Eve) and I loved it! I had finished it all by Boxing Day and went and got myself a whole tin of it. I knew that it was a limited edition tea so I saved most of it for this holiday season. However, I’m hoping that they bring it back for another year! PS who’s excited for advent calendars!?

Okay, so somehow or another I ended up with a full David’s Tea tin of Santa’s Secret (a red tin, if y’all are curious).

So, after having countless cups of this tea hot and as a latte, I decided to see if cold steeping it would be a nice change.

Yes! SO. FREAKING. TASTY! I find the peppermint notes are much stronger and I get the caffeine without worrying if I’ve oversteeped it. (I find this tea is a bit hit of miss with my 4-5 min steeping time when it’s hot).

I made a pitcher of it. I left it overnight in the fridge, probably 12-13 hours altogether, and it was light and minty. I totally recommend this tea cold steeped. It’s still tasty hot, but I don’t like it as much.

A great morning tea with the peppermint and slight vanilla flavor that adds a touch of creaminess to your cup. Truly lovely on a cold morning (I drank this every morning in the winter). I can’t wait till winter for them to bring it back x3 I have only had this hot, I feel like it might be a bit strange iced xD maybe I’ll try it someday. FOR SCIENCE!

I am not really sure why I love it, but I do. In fact, I cheated my Davids Tea advent calendar just to try it. Once I did, I went and purchased more. Now I find myself buying whatever I can get my hands on through their web specials…in July!

I really like this tea during winter, it’s a mix between enjoying tea and having sugar cane!
