I got this as a sample with my recent order and I have been dying to try it. The leaves have a very strong maple fragrance. The tea itself is more nutty than anything. I had high hopes for maple, but it’s still a great tea. Sweet and light!

On closer inspection (my second steep) I realize I used boiling water. This is likely what altered the taste. In any case I enjoyed it so much I’m already planning another order around it, which may include a gaiwan.

Yipes, boiling water is a bit harsh with this tea. I did that once before. Its really easy to use boiling water since the leaves are dark like a black tea.

I didn’t even think twice about it. Which is weird, I even chuckled to myself when I found this sample in with my black tea samples. It was still really good though!

I’m glad it still came out good. :)

Bio

There are few things in life that I enjoy more than a good cup of tea and the company of my dogs.
I’m a down to earth person very true to my Virgo roots. I own two Boxers, Octane (male, 6 years) and Rally Rims (female, 3 years). I do not breed or show, they are an integral part of my family. I also have a loving husband in the Canadian Military and a beautiful daughter who amazes me with her wit and intelligence everyday.
I love Autumn, for it’s colour, smell and general ambiance.
I’m just a girl, looking for a good cup of tea.
