I’m not generally one to squee over candies in my tea. I like flavored teas, but there’s something about having actual candy in there that just feels like a step too far. This tea is the exception though. The little multi-colored maple leaves are just charming. I love it.
The smell of this tea is very maple. The color is dead on for maple syrup. Early in the cup, I wasn’t impressed by the flavor. It tasted overwhelmingly of rooibos with only a faint hint of maple. As I kept drinking, a bit of syrupy film built up on the roof of my mouth (in a pleasant way) and the maple flavor drowned out the rooibos. This definitely hits the spot for something sweet! Quite enjoyable.
