drank Oh Canada! by DAVIDsTEA
217 tasting notes

I got this in a swap…although I am not sure who sent it. (SORRY, but THANK YOU, etc. etc.)

I tried it 1.5 tsp/cup, boil, 5 minute steep and it was somewhat week. I LOVE maple and am going to give it another try. I want to get the MAPLE!!! flavor that other tasters found. I am not going to rate until I give it a chance…Does anyone else have any good steeping parameters for this one?

I’m pretty sure that that one is from me! :) If you’re trying to get more flavour I would say don’t be afraid to up the dry leaf per amount of water and the infusion time.

Yes, I think you are right! Thank you, Raritea! I will play with leaf amount tonight…

i love this one, but got tired of it.. I have a bag of it i can send you if you’d like! …. i also found putting a tsp of pure canadian maple syrup in it brings out the maple flavouring! (if I can find a way to include some for ya I will) .. I’m thinking maybe if i put some in a film canister?

Bio

I like all kinds of tea and am open to new things. I am learning about all kinds of new tea and am working on pushing my palate with new tastes.

Looking for new tea shops/houses/cafes and finding new teas to sample is often part of the adventure!

Bringing varied teas to work makes the day interesting

I live in Framingham, MA with my husband, a cranky orange cat and an oversized chihuahua.

I am open to tea swaps from around the world and tea meetups if anyone is in the Greater Boston/ New England area.
