YUM! This is so darn good and decadent tasting— its like a 10 calorie peppermint hot chocolate! This is one I’m going to be reaching for a lot more as we head towards the holidays.

Warm up to winter
Say what you will about winter, but it might just be our favourite season. We love getting good and chilly out in the snow. And warming back up with a comforting drink is even more fun. So we created a cool, creamy drink that brings together everything we love about the season. It has peppermint for a burst of freshness. White chocolate for comfort and warmth. And pretty peppercorns just to make you smile. Sweet, comforting and refreshing, it’s a warm hug and a cool winter’s day – all at once.
Ingredients: Peppermint, white chocolate, pink peppercorn, stevia leaf, natural and artificial flavouring

If you like mint tea, or white chocolate, this is the tea for you. It’s very minty (which I oddly liked) and has the slight hint of white chocolate (also, oddly, I liked; I usually dislike white chocolate). It’s creamy and minty and delicious without being overly sweet or overly strong. Good tea for a day of bad weather curled up with a book.
Very nice! And this is coming from a mint skeptic. It tastes a bit like a mint chocolate candy, although the chocolate is subtler than I expected from the ingredient list. I don’t taste any peppercorn at all, but that’s fine with me. It’s enjoyable as-is.
Peppermint by nature is very strong, but the white chocolate is sweet enough that it balances it out well. That said, I wouldn’t consider this a sweet tea. It’s actually a pretty weird one: it reminds me a little of pleasant toothpaste. It’s also oily, murky, and contains the dreaded peppermint (for some reason, it continues to be my least favorite mint flavor), and yet I’m really enjoying this cup. I didn’t expect to! Also eased my headache a little, which makes it a winner.
So I’m back! I went through 7 hours of surgery to remove most ..almost all of my brain tumor..no Ill effects except healing and a badass scar! Pretty much grateful to have survived and had the best care possible. My surgeon says I may never have to deal with it again ..knock on wood! So of course my friends and family spoiled me …with tea and the Breville tea maker!!!!! Oh yes it is as amazing as it sounds!
On to the tea!
Love the winter collection so far. Gingerbread being the clear winner of the year I think.
I love peppermint and white chocolate so the smell of this just makes me drool. It is cool and sweet smelling. Peppermint with a sexy layer of white chocolate just beautifully encasing it. As my gorgeous Breville perfectly brews it the smell is just wonderful. That is what Christmas smells like. Should smell like.
Once brewed it smells more minty. Peppermint pretty much owning the stage. Im hoping it doesn’t turn into an ordinary peppermint tea because that would be terribly boring and disappointing. As the brew cools the chocolate becomes lovely apparent again.
As for taste it is like an adult peppermint tea. Solid peppermint that warms you entirely then a wave of sweet sensual white chocolate and cooling texture. Beautifully balanced. Superior peppermint tea. No overwhelming peppermint. Bold yet soft. If you like peppermint with restraint like I do then this is right up your alley.
Perfect for winter, Christmas and people who love mint with chocolate.
I will thoroughly enjoy my stash this winter. Not necessarily a staple but worthy of getting a small stash to survive the holidays. Way better then ordinary peppermint tea which I tend to avoid.
So, I drive the hour to my nearest Davidstea to get a calendar, but of course, by the time I could get there, they were gone :(
SO! I decided that I must absolutely treat myself to a new colour-changing mug instead! It’s the tree one. So pretty!!
I also got a bit more tea than I had originally planned (oops!)
This one I got 100g. I’m definitely getting the peppermint, but I’m not picking up on the white chocolate that much. I’m not too sure why, but I’m really not tasting it. I am noticing that the peppermint tea is more of a smooooooth peppermint instead of the usual bam that peppermint has, but still… I don’t know…
But no worries! I have a full tin worth to enjoy and get to taste the chocolate. I’m sure I will notice it. Maybe it’s just that I’m in such a happy place with the new mug and the really good drive tonight… either way, I’m happy that I didn’t notice it the same.
While this one can be a bit on the oily side, its also one of my new winter staples.
I swear this one just gets me. Its delicious. It tastes like white chocolate and creamy mint. Yes there’s a bit of oily scuzz on the top sometimes while its steeping. Yes it turns a greenish colour that looks like elf snot. Does it taste good though? Absofreakinglutely. I have yet to try it as a latte, mainly because its so good just on its own that I don’t want to ruin it.
The name is super enticing, it literally sent a tingle down my spine.
Looseleaf Smell: The smell reminds me of those candies you get at The Keg that are mint with a chocolate centre and cut your tongue. You know the ones? They’re real good.
Steeped Smell: a minty potato…. but in a good way
Appearance: It looks like how a shallow pond would come across if a young sassy brook trout came whipper snapperin’ along the bank, y’know
Taste: provides the drinker with a mysterious foggy aura, and engulfs them in a peaceful state of minty aftertaste
Just tried this and it is very nice. I can definitely taste the peppermint. I wasn’t sure about the other flavours, but definitely tasting something smooth too, which could be the white chocolate, but reminds me of vanilla. I’m not getting any burn from the peppercorns, but the tea is very warming. I’d definitely have it again.
