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”

A great morning tea with the peppermint and slight vanilla flavor that adds a touch of creaminess to your cup. Truly lovely on a cold morning (I drank this every morning in the winter). I can’t wait till winter for them to bring it back x3 I have only had this hot, I feel like it might be a bit strange iced xD maybe I’ll try it someday. FOR SCIENCE!

I am not really sure why I love it, but I do. In fact, I cheated my Davids Tea advent calendar just to try it. Once I did, I went and purchased more. Now I find myself buying whatever I can get my hands on through their web specials…in July!

I really like this tea during winter, it’s a mix between enjoying tea and having sugar cane!

This is one of my favourite black tea for when I am at work. I really like it! Not too sweet, little kick in the but, perfect for a morning rush when I need to get-sh**-done :)

There’s just something about the smoothness of this tea that gets to me…is it the hint of mint maybe? Who knows…I just love it!

Sample from Zach S.

There was some of this in the Monthly TTB club box, so I decided to try the sample and see what I thought of it. It’s good. It tastes like creamy peppermint candy. It’s a bit on the artificial end, but I don’t mind that since it’s a candy flavor. It’s tasty, but I don’t know if it’s a tea I would drink often, so I will pass it along to the next person. I wonder if there’s an herbal version of this?

I finally tried this today at a party and it was actually really lovely (I’d been pretty disinterested in the winter collection.) A really nice balance of vanilla and mint on a pleasant black base.

I don’t need this in my cupboard but I can see why so many people like it.

Flavors: Creamy, Mint, Vanilla


Although I did not have any this winter, I do like this one a lot. I don’t tend to like a lot of mint teas, but this one works for me.


I have a bunch of this in my cupboard, but it’s so happy and Christmas-like that it almost feels wrong to drink it in March.

This is my go-to decadent morning tea. It is on sale right now, and I have had to restrain myself from overstocking, reminded that I have too much of some former “go-tos.” It is not so much that I am fickle as that I am new to loose leaf tea… so many wonders to discover. :) Plus I now have to limit my caffeine to about one cup per day (re steeping doesn’t count, though, right?), which heightens the importance of the morning choice…

I never regret Santa’s Secret. With a little cream, it is like a peppermint vanilla cup of hot chocolate, but better because it’s tea! Highly recommend for lovers of flavored blacks.

Flavors: Chocolate, Peppermint, Vanilla

I absolutely love this tea! A perfect blend of vanilla and black tea with a hint of peppermint. I crave this tea if I haven’t had it in a few days.
