Hum…this tea is different. It’s really mapley. Good but I initially made it too sweet. Have to be careful. Think I want to drink this with breakfast…bacon and eggs and maple tea sounds good. Love the name. Would be fabulous steeped a long time and added into a desert recipe as a water replacement…might cook some squash in some and see what happens.
What a fun tea! Open the pouch and it’s Christmas! The smell of candy canes and chocolate is so delightful that I saved the first tasteing to share with my 3 young grandsons and my daughter on St. Nicholas Day Dec. 6th. They live in the country and it had snowed. The tea was ready and the smell…..WOW…what eye rolling yumminess! Tea for me is taste and aroma and experience. The Joy of the moment. This is a true experience maker. Drink with friends and add cream or stick a candy cane stir stick. Do Sweeten with agave. No tepid water and steep at least 4-5 minutes.
I grew up in Silicon Valley,California…and there were a couple of Good Earth Resturants that when you walked in the door the smell of this Good Earth Tea (the original) almost knocked you down. It brings back so many memories! (this was almost 30 years ago) Anyway….classic no sugar needed …super spicey with some citrus…serve it hot in a mug on a cold day …with a slice of whole grain zucchini bread GOOD TEA! Trust me I’m a GRANDMA! Don’t serve this tepid or weak let it go 4 minutes for the bite.
I like this tea. Has a great spicy bite to it. Doesn’t fool around and play with your tastebuds but says CHAI TEA and then whispers….a sweet honey note on the end that I love. I drink without milk but would be fine either way. Not an iced tea candidate. Drink steeped for about 4 minutes.
I picked up some Celestial Seasoning flavors when I went on a tour of their facility about a 45 minute drive from my home in Colorado. This tea is actually one of my favorites. I steep it pretty strong and add coconut milk (the kind you use on cereal or coconut coffee creamer which is better) to enhance the Thai curry memories that I love. Sweeten with sugar or agave but not honey because you don’t want to detract from the subtle coconut flavor.
This tea has a citrus smokey taste. It is sweet without being bitter. I tried it with and without cream and prefer it without. Also too much sweetener makes it taste like candy which is way too much. A little agave is fine or honey. Brewed with spring water…1 TB for 2 1/2 cup pot. The flavor is interesting and unusual. I would not like it weak or iced or over steeped. I did not taste definate rose or chocolate.
Well, I keep going back to see if I am going to change my mind about this tea. After 4 tasteings using Spring Water to brew…a 2 cup pot…using 1 TB and letting the tea steep for about 5 min. also with sugar instead of honey or agave and cream instead of milk. I love this tea!!! The roasting of the leaves is just enough to give a subtle smoke like the experience of chicory coffee at Cafe du Monde in New Orleans. The mocha note with orange is just and not cloying. This is not too girly. Solid robust flavor.
This is such a beautiful girly tea. Small rose buds…perfect and sweet but not perfumy. The taste is more of fruit and rosehip with a nose that brings on Springtime. This is definately tea party tea. Steep 5 min. at 212 degrees 2 tsp per 8oz water. Good 2nd pour. Lovely aroma and flavor. Milk works well.
