So this is yet another tea from the Great Canadian Travelling tea box ( 1st edition). I am sort of late with posting these tealogs up here, but it’s better later than never. I consumed this tea on October 4, 2013.
Dry Leaf: The tea leaves are in a tea bag that is transparent. It has green leaves that give off a sweet scent, which would be due to the maple.
Steeped: The smell becomes grassy, and the taste is a blend of grassy and sweet, which would be the maple playing off of the green tea leaves.
So I originally gave this a rating of 5 and that was pretty damn harsh given it is actually not that bad. Mostly it is a mediocre black tea but the aftertaste is nice and mapley. Not a bad cup to sip on as I wait for my flight.
On a completely unrelated note, I am sitting next to a table and a plug by my gate at the airport. Despite there being seats everywhere, a young boy came and sat on the other side of the table. He then proceeded to lay out all the books he had in his backpack in a row and plug in his iphone to charge. Then, after playing with a motorized car for a bit, he would pick up the different books and go “HA” and read for a minute and then put it back down. After a while, he started talking to me but he was speaking French and I had to tell him I didn’t understand. He then proceeded to keep talking at me anyways. The moral of the story: children are pretty entertaining.
So are cab drivers. Mine decided to blare pretty intense Bollywood music the whole way to the airport. And if that wasn’t enough, he then proceeded to sing along. All in all, it has been a pretty interesting day so far.
I received this tea as a gift. I was skeptical at first becuase I didn’t think maple syrup would go with green tea. Surprisingly it is very good. It has a delicate green tea taste sweetened with just enough maple sugar. Its a Canadian must have!
The maple coffee is also delicious.
