drank Oh Canada! by DAVIDsTEA

At the risk of being tossed right off this board…

Prior to drinking this, I thought the Organic Grapefruit from London Tea Room was the worst tea I’d ever had. This topped that.

This smelled absolutely incredible in the bag. Yummy maple aroma wafting out of the bag. I was so excited I could hardly contain myself. I love maple. I love rooibos. Then I steeped it. I promise this isn’t hyperbole: this tea steeped smells like a house with too many cats. It tasted as awful as it smelled.

I’ll be sending an email to DavidsTea. Yuk.

NOTE: Removing my terrible, 1-point rating. We’ll see if the sample works out and I just got a bad batch.

D’oh! That is a truly unfortunate experience.

That’s really strange. This one really tasted like maple syrup to me; nearly the same as the aroma.

I tried it too. I think the rooibos is off. I did get a lot of maple syrup but I also got the undesirable flavor. There is burnt flavor to it that doesn’t mix right with flavoring. I wonder if you can chemically burn rooibos with flavoring stuff.
