From DAVIDsTEA

Need a little helper?
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”

Ingredients: Chinese black tea, peppermint leaves, candy cane sprinkles.

1.5 tsp of tea at 98°C / 208°F for 4-6 min

First post on Steepster, so I’m going to keep this somewhat brief. I received this tea in a Christmas sampler pack and in my opinion, it’s one of the better ones included in the mix. I drank this with a little bit of agave syrup, which was good, but I think it would be totally fine without sweetener too. Nice minty flavour, and not overpowering.

I ordered this tea on a whim when I prepared my DT order online. I’m not priviledged enough to have a store near me yet. This tea blew away any expectations I had. It was really nice to have on Christmas eve while curled up with some movies. Sometimes, I brew it and forget about it. I presonally like my tea boiling hot but this one is pleasant even if left for a bit.

I received this as part of a Christmas three pack with Merry Cranberry and Sleigh Ride. Sadly, I think Santa’s Secret is that I’m getting a lump of coal because I did not like this tea at all!

(Actually, if I’m truly honest my first reaction/exclamation was ’What foul trickery is this?!")

While it had a peppermint and (almost) cocoa scent that I’ve come to associate with other teas, I didn’t find that the taste matched the smell. It was a bit bitter, like a dark chocolate peppermint patty gone wrong. I’m glad I only got a small sample of this, because it won’t become a staple for me.

I normally hate any kind of mint including candy canes but for some reason I adore this tea. At first I hated the smell because of the strong peppermint, but once I brewed a cup all I tasted was the blend of black tea with a hint of sweet mintyness which I liked, despite my misgivings about a mint tea.

Try it! Even if you don’t like mint.

This is a must for every holiday. It has a fresh peppermint flavor that is not too overpowering, just right.

I got two of these in my advent calendar (which I started early hehe) for some reason. This is CHRISTMAS IN A CUP! Mmmmm so good and minty, kind of candy-like. Definitely worth getting more of.

This tea is the perfect holiday tea! The the black tea and the mint are nicely balanced. It is like Christmas in a cup =)

This is definitely one of my favorite Christmas teas. It’s got a sort of chocolatey minty flavor and is one of the few teas I enjoy black.
