Dry leaf smells like pancakes, mostly syrup, but still yummy.
Steeped the smell is mostly tea with a hint of syrup.
And taste…well, I think boiling water was a mistake :(, because I pretty much just got the tea base.
Next time I’ll lower the temperature and that will likely fix things; and I’ll leave this unrated until then.

Definitely play with the perimeters . There’s maple and pancake in there that wants to come forth.

I know! I usually go around 205 degrees for blacks (I have a Breville which is the only reason I even know these things, haha) so I’m thinking that that will improve things muchly. :)

A few of my favorite teas (in no particular order):

*Dessert flavored blacks
*Breakfast blends
*Virtually any black tea (but lapsang/keemun!)
*Dancong oolong
*Sencha
*Dragonwell

When it comes to tea, I feel like the 10th Doctor says it best:

“Tea! That’s all I needed! Good cup of tea! Super-heated infusion of free-radicals and tannin, just the thing for healing the synapses. "
