backlog from yesterday after work. I tried to pay close attention to the smell and taste of this tea so I could write it up today. When I smell it, I don’t get that same pancake maple smell that everyone else seems to get. It smells like raw pizza dough to me, no vanilla or tasty sweetness that comes with pancakes.

I also don’t taste the maple syrup. Brewed, the tea smells bland to me. I don’t hate this tea, I like it…but not as pancakes. As a simple black tea. It looks like I probably just got some from a less flavorful batch, because these reviews are amazing. I’m not going to put a number rating for this one, but I don’t get the syrupy pancake taste that I so wanted.

Bio

Born and raised in Connecticut, went to college in Vermont, and moved back to work after a year of service.

I love sweet, decadent, desserty teas the most but I also appreciate a strong refreshing cup of green or white tea. I recently started a matcha smoothie morning, sometimes mate or black tea, then black tea and rooibos throughout the day, and whatever my little heart desires most when I get home from work!

I’m obsessed with Della Terra, DAVIDs, and 52teas because they have the best dessert teas but also have a selection of some more straight things too. Recently tried Simpson and Vail and LOVE them too!!

I don’t have a rating system, I just kind of guess. I think I should make a rating system…

85-100 I want this in my cupboard always
75-85 I like it but I’m not rushing out to buy more immediately
60-75 Probably not going to want more than the sample
40-60 I don’t like this tea, I wouldn’t recommend it, and I won’t drink it again
0-40 This wasn’t even worth the sip.

Ok let’s try that for a bit now.
