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.

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

I love the smell of this tea. It’s peppermint-ey deliciousness got me excited for Christmas even though it’s only November. The candy cane flavour wasn’t lost when I steeped it, which was nice.I found the black tea flavour a little strong in contrast to the peppermint, so I added a tiny bit of agave to take some of the edge off and I much preferred it. It is very strong and has too much caffeine for me to even consider drinking in the evening, but I can’t imagine drinking something with so much peppermint in the morning. I’m going to give it another chance, probably closer to Christmas. I imagine it would be amazing with a little bit of almond milk!
Emilie sent me this and I was excited to try it. So when huffing the bag the smell was pleasant, minty almost. Nothing mind blowing. Brewed 3 tsp in 16oz of water in my ingenuiTea. Great cup, no bitterness to speak of, but limited sweetness. Its a black with mellow mint hints, which is good. But after my buttered rum experience, I think I held my expectations too high for this one. Definitely worth drinking again, but not a staple for my cupboard. I love mint teas, so it takes a lot for me to be wowed into submission.
this tea was so amazing – probably my favourite ever. I am so sad i’m finished it and i can’t buy any more (it was only out special for christmas!) I got it as a gift as I do not live near any David’s Tea Locations but it is so delicious, I only got a small amount in a christmas ornament type thing. Reminds me of mint chocolate chip ice cream. I would drink it with milk and agave nectar, but thats just how i like to take my black teas always.
I really enjoy this one! It’s a nice fun tea for Christmas with the candy canes in it. The minty taste is strong when it first hits your mouth, but doesn’t linger too much, so is quite enjoyable. I often find when eating actual candy canes that the peppermint taste just gets stuck in your mouth and throat, and after a while it isn’t enjoyable – not the case with Santa’s Secret. A fun addition for Christmas.
