What's today's tea? Coffee cake? That's nothing like Santa's Secret (mint).

I was wondering that! I haven't tried it yet, but the ingredients don't seem similar at all.


I had it in my timolino mug in the car without the lid today, and, everytime I got into the car (I was running a bunch of errands), it smelled like Santa's secret. With a splash of milk, it reminded me a lot of it.

Or, maybe I'm remembering Read my Lips?

Not bad, but I'm not a huge fan of chamomile so I won't be buying it.

i thought mango madness was just okay. probably the best white tea of tried, but they just aren't my favourite. maybe iced?

just looked at the price - nope, won't be buying it! i'd rather spend my money on the "love" teas.

That's how I feel! I thought it was more of a chamomile tea (I liked it).

I didn't get a ton of mint either. Just a hint. Which may be why I liked it.

I'm enjoying the Kokomo green today. Again, likely won't buy it, but I like it.

I really like this one but usually end up buying green and fruity which is quite similar.

I've been sick for a few days now and couldn't stomach tea. So I'm a bit behind.

I tried coffee cake today and it did nothing for me.

I have a tin of mother's little helper which I enjoy.

After trying coffee cake, my stomach is saying no to more tea so I won't try it today.

This is one of my favourites. I think that Marg was the one who originally mentioned this one and that was the reason I tried it a long time ago. Yum. It is one of my 'go to' teas.

I didn't love it last year. However, today, I'm on my second mug. It's yummy!
