Oops. I was in a rush when I prepped this tea and forgot about it until class time, so it was way over-steeped. This would probably be why it was way too cinnamon-y.
This one’s really a hit or miss — although the same can be said of my tea steeping skills. Sometimes, it’s perfection and sugar mixed together in a heady, velvety cup, but other times it’s nauseatingly sweet and fruity.
huh, not bad. this one was recouped from my winner’s tea expedition yesterday. it’s been a long time since i’ve had a bagged tea and honestly, i’ve become enough of a loose leaf snob that if i’d been using my literacy (notice i say IF) i likely wouldn’t have bought. i grabbed this one and a blueberry. really….. not bad. both teas carry a distinct cookie quality. i used two tea bags for my 16 oz mug and a 3 minute steep.
it has layers. the maple is more olfactory when it’s screaming hot, but becomes more tangible as taste as it cools.
don’t think i’ll buy again, but i have had far, far worse in my life!!!
Now, I bought this tea quite a while ago, thinking it would actually taste like maple. until this evening, I have only ever drunk one cup of this tea, and I’m considering putting the rest in my compost. I’ll tell you why:
It smells delicious and inviting, even when it’s brewed, it smells strong super maple-y. But the taste is nothing like maple at all! Overall it is very bland and a bit bitter, like regular orange pekoe. This tea does not live up to its name at all! What a shame…. now excuse me while I go give the rest of the tea in the pot in my plants.
I had this one today, but I know that I let it steep far too long. I found it to be a bit too strong for me. I think I’ll have to watch my steep time next time. I didn’t notice the maple flavour too much… but again, I think that’s because I let it stay for far too long.
I’ll rate it when I try again.
I had this tea for the first time the other day and I fell in love! I just can’t find it online I live in the states so I’m bummed I can’t find it. As for those of you who don’t like it (Indigobloom) I don’t know why you found it untasty. You must not like simple teas like black tea. The icewine tea I found is tasty with just a little scoop of sugar. It brings out all the flavor and makes it robust. And as for Gramarye I didn’t find it to have a bad after taste at all that only happened when I left the bag in too long and it broke. As for me it will be a regular in my cuboard if i can find it again. :-)
Fruity, definitely fruity, and even winey. Just not tasty! I couldn’t even finish the cup. That makes three cups of tea that went unfinished today! I need to stop experimenting… (hahahaha as IF I could even attempt such a thing)
Not much else worth saying about this one. I was tempted to try it with milk but I doubt even that could save this.
That said, if anyone can find a use for this(cooking perhaps?), I have a bunch waiting to be used up!
The first time I have a new black tea I like to try it plain first, even though I usually put milk and sometimes honey into mine. It’s sort of so I get an idea about the flavour without anything else messing with my perception. Yeah, I’ve got it all down to a science. ;)
This one is pretty plain actually, the Ceylon base is mostly what I taste, although there are sweet hints of maple syrup. It’s not harsh-tasting, other than that it’s a pretty generic Ceylon.
I became addicted to drinking this tea in the morning. It’s the perfect maple flavored tea that is not too sweet. I’m in the U.S. and, unfortunately, with shipping, it’s a bit too expensive to order from Canada.
I bought this at a gift shop while I was in Banff. After I noticed that there was a tea collection at this shop, I just had to take a look at what they had. They were mostly ice wine and maple teas, so I had a hard time choosing which one to buy, but I ended up buying this one. It is a Ceylon tea that has a sweet maple scent which isn’t strong or weak, perhaps just right. The flavor though was a bit weaker than what I had expected, so I added some maple syrup to bring it to life and it sort of worked. It is somewhere between medium to heavy bodied, but feels light in terms of caffeine content.
An almost perfume-like taste shows the presence of icewine flavouring in this bagged tea. The icewine adds a faint note reminiscent of Darjeeling, though to be more accurate it falls somewhere between the aftertaste of raisins and cream sherry. Probably not a tea I will seek out again, but good experiment for a few bags’ worth of variety in the daily cup routine.
Delicious: fruity and velvety, to match a mellow-yet-uplifting mood that can only be brought about via the combination of pure premium Ceylon tea and Canadian vin de glace.
