First time trying this tea and my first impression is it smells like campfire with a hint of maple behind it. Loose in the bag it looks very cute with the little maple leafs. once steeped it takes on the color of maple syrup which is kind of neat and the smells is increased 10 fold! the taste is pleasant, I might add some sugar to this as it’s not as sweet as expected but believe it or not i can feel the maple syrup in the back of my throat! All around good tea, I guess I do like Rooibos tea after all! I don think i would but a whole 100g tin of this but I might spring for another bag come sugar shack time and sweeten it with real maple syrup!
