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”

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!

It’s a great minty tea if you want something different that’s not Read My Lips.

I drank this tea almost every morning during the holiday season! It’s delicious and the perfect refreshing mint tea to have in the morning. I feel weird drinking it outside of Christmas time, but still want to! Might have to buy a tin just to have around for cold SF nights.

I love this and drink it almost to the exclusion of anything else throughout December. The mini candy canes are a nice touch. It’s sweet and minty and evokes all kinds of delightful flavours that I’m not entirely certain that it should. It alternately reminds me of cinnamon, vanilla, and caramel. It’s sweet, it’s minty, it’s fun, it’s holiday cheer in a mug. Yum.

This brings to mind mint chocolate chip ice cream on smell, and I was pleasantly surprised to see it tasted the same. This could also pass for mint cocoa if I didn’t already know I was actually drinking tea.
