The thing that really hooked me in about this tea is the smell – it’s crazy good. I found it steeped best at the recommended time of 5 minutes – any less and it’s not quite strong enough to stand up to milk. But when it’s done right, it’s a delicious cup of tea. Best with milk and a bit of sugar to really bring out the maple flavour and add creaminess – it’s like dessert in a mug.
I really want to try boiling this tea in milk on the stove, the traditional chai way, to see how it tastes. I have high hopes!
This is a very nice tea. The orange makes this smell wonderful, though the flavor is more subtle then the smell. It’s not an overpowering orange flavor, and I don’t get much vanilla from this. I suspect that while I can’t taste it, that it’s there mellowing out the orange. Over all, I find this to be smooth, mellow, and very nicely balanced.
This is my first order from this company. It’s just a small shop in downtown Calgary and I’ve finally broken down and ordered. I really love the tins that thier teas come in. They’re free with the order and have different artworks printed on them…I think they’re awesome, and I’ll deffinately be hanging on to them.
I was really excited opening up the package. And opening up this tea…the smell just hit me. It smells just like christmas. I have no idea why, I can’t quite place it. But it totally reminds me of Christmas when I was a little kid. Smells so good it makes my toes curl.
The leaf is really super dark, it looks amazing. First thing I had to do was run to the kitchen and make some. I didn’t add any milk or sugar to this, I wanted to try out the flavor on it’s own first. It’s wonderfuly smooth. I can really taste the cinnamon and cloves…absolutely delicious. I’m thinking this is my new favorite tea place. Woohoo!
