Unique blend of white tea, cool peppermint, and a hint of ginger. Adding a touch of sugar brings out the distinct flavors.

I’ve tried this one twice more. Most recently, I let it steep for a good 20 minutes. Even after all that time, I couldn’t taste the ginger. Just mint, but with a hint of warmth, presumably from the ginger. Have to admit I’m disappointed since I have multiple other mint teas and was really curious about the mint-ginger combo. Also, I definitely prefer this one without any sugar or sweetener added! White Christmas is good for a mint tea, but falls flat as a mint-ginger tea.
I specifically steep this for no longer than 2 minutes though to keep it tasting mellow. This is one of my favourite year long teas to drink, even if it is suppose to be a seasonal holiday tea. It was rather hard to find in the stores but I ordered a large box from Amazon. I drink it with milk, no sugar.
Wanted to add another tasting note. Even though this is called “White Christmas,” I decided to try it cold steeped because I was running out of bagged tea and I was too lazy to bother with loose leaves for a quick pitcher in the the heat.
So surprised. In the ridiculous heat we’re experiencing currently, this has a nice, cooling mint flavor. It’s too bad I probably can’t pick any more of this up until winter comes back.
