Santa’s Secret from David’s Tea

Tea Information:

Leaf Type:  Black

Where to Buy:  David’s Tea

Product Description:

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”.

Taster’s Review:

Every year I try to tell my family that Santa would prefer tea instead of milk with the cookies we sit out for the jolly old elf.  They don’t believe me, but maybe this tea will convince them!

My first reaction – my first sip – was CANDY CANE!  It was sweet, minty and delicious.  Now that I’ve taken a few sips, it tastes a little less like candy cane (although that taste is still there), and more like a black tea that has been flavored with candy cane.  The mint flavor is just right – it doesn’t taste overly minty.  It tastes crisp and fresh and exhilarating with a sweetness that is not too sweet.  Perfect for dipping your favorite Christmas cookies!

The black tea base is strong without being overly aggressive.  It seems to be in perfect harmony with the mint flavor.  It is a very well-balanced cup.

I find this to be delightful as a hot tea and that’s just what I want this time of year.  It has a refreshingly sweet taste that requires no additions, although it might be nice with a splash of milk.

Yep, I think Santa would be a very JOLLY old elf indeed if you surprised him with a cup of this tea instead of a glass of milk!

Elf Help from David’s Tea

Tea Information:

Leaf Type:  Green

Where to Buy:  David’s Tea

Product Description:

Sweet and fruity with a dash of nutty flavour, this green tea is the saviour of elves everywhere. When they’re building to deadline in the workshop, they crave a drink that’s like dessert with a kick of energy. So we made a tea that tastes just like fruitcake in a mug. Add some brandy for the authentic cake experience – those tipsy elves always do.

Ingredients

Sencha green tea, orange peel, apple, papaya, raisins, barberries, freeze-dried cranberries, coconut, natural flavouring.

Taster’s Review:

Yum!!!  This is so tasty.

One quick glance at the ingredient list might lead someone to believe that this is going to be a very fruity tea – and it is – but, it isn’t SO fruity that it overwhelms the flavor of the green tea.

The green tea is light-bodied and light in flavor, but it adds a crisp, fresh taste to the fruit that is distinct.  It isn’t very grassy or vegetative to taste; if you’re one that doesn’t care for green tea because it does come off as too grassy or vegetative, this is an excellent choice for you!

There is a lot of different fruit tastes here.  I can taste hints of each fruit, but the two that stand out the most definitively to me are the orange and the cranberry.  There is also a certain “tropical-y” taste to this, like the Elves on holiday!

It is sweet (almost candy like!) and there is a hint of tartness toward the end of the sip.  Due to the sweetness of this cup, it is one that I recommend tasting before you add additional sweetener – you may find this one to be just right without it.

I can see why David’s Tea decided to make this a holiday-ish blend – it definitely reminds me of Christmas with its delicious flavor.  It does remind me a bit of a fruitcake (which I happen to like although sometimes I think I’m the only one who does!)

It is sweet, fruity and delicious.  A tea that I would recommend to anyone who enjoys flavored green teas – this one is one I could enjoy again and again!  Love it!

 

Secret Weapon from DavidsTea

Tea Type: White Tea

(Fruit/Herbal/White Tea Blend)

Where To Buy: DavidsTea

Product Description:

This blend just might give you the edge you need to stay healthy this fall. It’s a white Bai Mu Dan, so it’s naturally high in immunity-enhancing antioxidants. Plus it contains licorice and goji berries, a Chinese wonderfood reputed to have 500 times more vitamin C than oranges. The best part? The almonds and cocoa nibs. They don’t fight colds, but they make this an amazingly tasty weapon of choice.

Tasters Review:

Upon opening the package this smells like nuts!  Lots and Lots of Nuts!  Almost a peanut butter type aroma.  Underneath I can smell a little fruit and even less flower-likeness.

I’m not gonna lie…I stole an almond sliver before infusing…it was tasty!

After infusion this smelled like almond but more mellow. I can also taste the Goji Berries slightly.   The white tea itself has a great clean flavor!   I can’t really taste the licorice much…but that’s ok with me…oh wait!  There it is…it’s “on the assist” and on to the aftertaste…but only a hint!  It seems to squeak it’s way in there!

This is a creative and comforting blend!  It’s fun and unique!  I’m very happy about this tea it seems to be the full package!  Good and good FOR you!

This is such a FUN tea!  Elf Help Green Tea has VERY colorful ingredients and is highly scented!

I can taste the green tea, sure, but there is a fruit salad type quality to it that I just can’t shake!   I’m SO THANKFUL there isn’t Hibiscus in this!  Thanks for that, DavidsTea!

OH YEAH…and check out these ingredients:
Sencha green tea, orange peel, apple, papaya, raisins, barberries, freeze-dried cranberries, coconut!

The more I drink this the more I enjoy it!  It’s fruity without being TOO fruity on the tongue!   This is a GREAT offering from DavidsTea!  I have this one listed in my mid to upper 90 percentile on my personal rating scale!

Tasters Review:

Someone at David’s Tea must have done some checking up on me to know I have a weakness for minty teas!  Perhaps THAT’S Santa’s Secret!  He was spying on me!?

The Minty Goodness and the Candy Cane Goodness are separate but still yummy and still work together very nicely!  I LOVE the little Candy Canes in this!  So Festive!

I ALWAYS drink my teas plain but I might have to break down and try this one with some Soy Milk – just because!  BUT this IS lovely as-is!!!  So either way – plain or with additives – this is sure to be a treat!

Buttered Rum Tea from David’s Tea

Tea Type: Black Tea

Where To Buy: David’s Tea

Product Description:

Yo ho ho-conut
Hot buttered rum is so delicious we want it all day long. Unfortunately, most employers frown on workplace drunkenness, so we came up with this rich and creamy alternative. Toasted coconut and vanilla beans mingle with black tea in a caramelized caress of flavours. Decadent hot or iced, it also blends perfectly with dark rum, brown sugar and a dash of milk – so go ahead and indulge your inner pirate, off the clock.

Tasters Review:

Buttered Rum Tea!?  I’m In!  I should have posted this one on a Friday because it’s just THAT kind of tea!  It’s wild and crazy but also a nice tea to help take your troubles away after a hard day or week, even!

At first sip I could totally taste the rum comparison! After my first sip I started to notice some other things!  I could taste the vanilla as it cooled a bit but found it to be a bit peppery the colder it got, actually.  This wasn’t a bad thing at all! I think it contributes to that warm rum type taste without it actually being warm in temperature…sort of like rum would warm your throat as you swallowed it.

I also LOVE the coconut in this!  It completes the cup!  The buttery notes are wonderful, too!  If you ever have the opportunity to try this…please do!  If you are looking for a company to purchase from – David’s Tea has a nice selection!
