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”

Love this tea! I find it is somewhat similar to read my lips but have more of a candy cane mint, rather than a peppermint flavour. I would recommend it if you like read my lips. It is great with a splash of almond milk and make you feel a little christmas-y even if it is a little early!!

I am beyond stoked that this tea is back in stock!! I didn’t get to stock up on it last winter and didn’t have enough of it throughout the year! It’s your winter essential ! It tastes amazing straight black or with sugar!! Also, those cute little candy canes .. MMHMMM !

I can’t wait for this tea to (hopefully) come back for the holiday season. When this tea quickly ran out of my local David’s Tea store, I quickly ran online and bought 500g to last me throughout the year.

The aroma of the peppermint is amazing and it gives it a sweetness that isn’t overpowering unlike Read My Lips. Even though it’s a seasonal tea, it was good enough to drink it year round!

Very similar to Read my lips.
Santa’s Secret feels “cleaner” when you drink it and that is just about the only difference.

They are both black teas, have peppermint and little shaped candies in them. The only difference is that Santa’s Secret has no chocolate in it. That should essentially make a difference, but not really.

This is one of my very favourite teas from this particular company. I have a big tin of it and it tastes great no matter how I make it, though lately I’ve been taking to dunking a bag of it in a cup of hot white chocolate. Straight, the taste and smell are warm and filling. I’m glad I got a tin of it before the winter collection left.

It’s minty, and sweet! Although I do like those two together, it wasn’t anything amazing to me. Just tasted like a sweetened mint tea. It reminded me subtly of “Read my Lips” sans chocolate. I’ll finish this tea of course, but it’s not something I’d go and buy again.

This was my favourite of David’s winter teas. I really wanted to order the 250g bag online, but I refuse to order David’s online unless I can spend the $50 to get the free shipping and I didn’t see anything else that I wanted. This is a lot like read my lips, but without the chocolate, so it is not nearly as sweet. It’s just creamy minty goodness.

This is definitely my most favourite tea ever! I could drink it any time, not just in the winter!! It is so comforting and makes me feel so relaxed! It is so hard to explain how this tastes…it doesn’t have an overwhelming peppermint taste but it is nice and creamy and definitely does taste like candy canes! The little candy canes included in the tea sweeten it just enough, I wouldn’t want to add any additional sugar to it. Best tea ever! I hope that it comes back again for next xmas…my stock will be depleted by then!
