It was one of the first holiday teas I ever tried from DAVIDsTEA. It is a lighter blend, not lighter as in a light flavor, but as in not too indulgent, because it focuses on the rich boldness from the black tea, a nice hint of peppermint not to weak, not to overpowering, and the subtlest hint of vanilla sweetness from the candy cane sprinkles. It's a flavor profile that works amazingly as a latter, or just black with no sweetener. Not too sweet at all and with a great peppermint flavor, Santa's Secret will forever be a holiday staple in my house.</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2019-12-12</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2019-12-12" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="https://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="275400140"> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="https://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">1</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author" itemtype="https://schema.org/Person" itemscope><span itemprop="name">Mandajoe</span></span> from <span itemprop="name">2023 RECIPE CHANGE</span> <span itemprop="description">Heads up to anyone who loves this tea as much as I used to: the recipe has changed. Rice flour has been added and it is now sickly sweet and just gets worse with every sip. Had to give up before finishing even one cup of the new batch. Even opening the bag I could tell something was different. It used to smell like Christmas, but now it just smells off. Couldn&rsquo;t taste the light notes of peppermint or vanilla. It used to be my absolute favorite, but now it&rsquo;s horrible. David&rsquo;s Tea&mdash;why would you make such a change?!

It&rsquo;s my favorite, and stock up each season, which usually gets me to July/August. So sad&hellip; Its horrible with the recipe change. It burns my mouth, esophagus, and stomach. I can still feel the burn as I type. They must have put chile. It now has a very unpleasant chemical taste and smell.

That light peppermint flavor is just enough to add a nice zing to this tea, and it smells so good. The little candy canes are so cute.

Perhaps the QC team was sick or did not have last year&amp;rsquo;s batch to compare. I drank my final tea from last year one day and tried to drink the new tea the next. Tried. Completely different.

As far as I know, this is the ONLY sugar in the tea. I&#39;m not sure it&#39;s enough to make a difference if one has diabetes, for instance, but if you&#39;re concerned about caloric intake, I can assure you, this will not make much difference if you&#39;re only drinking one or 2 cups of this a day. If you&#39;re making a latte, it may, because we&#39;re required to use three times the amount of regularly used tea in a latte.
