As usual, I am a day late on my tasting for the 12 days of Christmas swap! This is one of the 3 Day 3 teas from Liberteas, sadly the only one I’ve had a chance to try thus far. It’s been a busy week—my boyfriend is in the hospital so much of my time has been spend traveling & visiting. I actually brought Day 4 with me today but the water they gave me was icky and tasted like coffee :/ So I am going to cold brew it and the French Vanilla from Day 3 to bring to him tomorrow.

Anyway, this tea! I love maple and this is scrumptious. It’s not a heavy, rich maple but quite light without losing that inherent maple texture. It’s not quite as maple-y as the Tea Guys blend so it’s quite nice for an afternoon tea, not something that has to be relegated to dessert status. It’s a bit malty too with some caramel notes, perhaps a hint of vanilla? Nicely complex, especially given how overwhelming maple can be!

Tea has always been a passion of mine, though I got away from it during college. A lack of cupboard space and a constant influx of people into my suite made me pretty much abandon my teas at home. But now that I’m done with school, it’s definitely come back with a vengeance—to the point where I’ve purchased about 65 different kinds in the past 3 months!

I like most kinds of teas—yes, even peach, which I used to think I disliked!. Oolongs are definitely my favorite, and I’m an avid fan of earl grey, floral teas, and chai blends along with anything melon. The only kind of teas on my “no” list are rooibos blends (which gives me headaches) and banana flavored ones since bananas are public enemy #1 in my mind.

The best thing about tea for me is how you can be passionate about it and still have it integrate into all of your other hobbies. I like a lot of things: writing, video games, books, sewing, figure collecting, astronomy… it’s a long list. But whatever I’m doing, I can have a cup of tea in hand!
