Thanks to jessiwrites for sending me a sample of this :) I know it must have been difficult since you love it!
First a story. I am so frustrated trying to figure out all my necessary graduation requirements! The science advisor is a very nice person, but if anything, I leave her office more confused then when I went in. So I’ve been calculating and contemplating all day about what courses I need and what courses go where and gah! The worst part is I have an exam on Friday I need to study for but my brain seems to be in overdrive about graduation. End rant. Perhaps getting that out will help.
As soon as I poured the water over the leaves the scent of maple and pecan wafted out. It smells delicious, but also very sweet. Hopefully it won’t be too sweet for me.
The first couple sips are definite maple, but not too heavy, which surprises me. A few more sips in and I’m getting a nutty taste alongside the maple.
I’m finding it very sweet and at the same time not sweet at all. How bizarre. It’s delicious though, and that’s what counts right?
The second steep is great as well. It almost tastes sweeter than the first actually.
