You want a sweet tea? I WILL GIVE YOU A SWEET TEA! Here it is; Oh Canada! Nothing could be sweeter than this cheery blend of toffee, caramel, maple syrup, more stuff that aren’t necessarily sweet, and a garnish of cute, colourful maple candies to top it off, how can you go wrong?! Of course, if you dislike sweet teas, this is a very sweet tea, but wow, is it ever fun!
I find this tea particularly wonderful for autumn (maybe it’s the little maple leaves, makes me see the changing leaves outside!) alongside David’s Tea’s Pumpkin Chai, but whereas P-Chai brings me to a mellow, calm, warm place, Oh Canada takes me on a sweet, bubbly ride through the orange-and-yellow forests!
Also, this cheers me up immensely when I have a cold; it’s absolutely a comfort tea, and while I wouldn’t have it every day, it’s still an absolute joy to have on hand!
I feel I should also add that this is one of the very, very few Rooibos teas I will drink regularly – generally I prefer a strong black tea that will pair well with (too much) milk without getting drowned out. But Oh Canada! stands on its own two feet, even paired with milk, and still pulls through more than admirably. I’m not sure I’ve found a lot of Rooibos blends that can say that, at least not ones I love this much. It’s a great bonus to a lovely tea.
