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.

Hello there! I’m Allie and I am no longer a Psychology undergraduate student! At this stage, I am trying to find a job and prep for the ever so fun process of applying to graduate programs. Wish me luck!

When I originally joined Steepster, I was trying to kick my coffee habit. This brought me into a love of tea. Even though I now drink both in moderation, I seem to go through coffee and tea phases. While I love coffee, tea is almost more fun. There are so many different kinds and blends to choose from! I tend to gravitate toward sweet and dessert-type teas, due to eliminating all sugar and grain from my diet nearly four years ago. I enjoy all types of tea though! The only types that tend to be hit or miss are green and pu-erh blends thus far. Otherwise I am still open to trying nearly anything!
