Thank you whatshesaid for this sample! The name of the tea intrigued me as well as the concept of popcorn in tea. Popcorn is one of my weaknesses and I don’t eat it often after going low carb three years ago.
The scent is a mix of popcorn and maple with something a bit earthy. I was good and did not eat any of the popcorn in the tea, though it was tempting! This brewed up pale yellow in color and I steeped it for seven minutes in order to get all the flavor out of it. I prefer drinking this in one of two ways: The first is with nothing added to it, because it tastes almost just like buttery popcorn. The second is with no more than one Splenda mini tab to slightly enhance the maple flavor. This makes it taste more like kettle corn. I do not get any apple notes from this tea unless it is cold and has been sitting around for a while.
Overall, I am happy with this flavor! It is not one that I will be drinking regularly, but it’s good to have around when I get a popcorn craving at night.
