Sipdown! This is actually the third cup of my sample pack, and I didn’t log the other two yet. But this is another pretty tasty tea by Acquired Taste Tea! The dry smell is a deep, rich maple scent. I steeped for 2 minutes, and this one is a bit stronger than the others due to finishing up the sample pack, but it is still good! The flavor is like real maple syrup, a dark and rich taste, not too sugary, but definitely mapley. The aftertaste has the creaminess of caramel, and the base does well to support the subtle yet delicious flavors. This one might definitey be a re-buy, but I need to finish my larger packs of tea from this company first!

I love Maple. When I sweeten my tea, which I’m not doing much these days, I tend to use Maple syrup more often than stevia now. I especially LOVE it on almond flour pancakes. Yes, Please!

Yes maple is quite a nice flavor, this is my first tea that has a real maple syrup flavor, that deeper flavor rather than just all sugar, not as caramelly, and now I want pancakes at 8 in the morning at work lol :)

Bio

Hello all, I’m a newly graduated electrical engineer as of 2013 (read:NERD :D), who is a bit obsessed with tea! I discovered loose tea in 2011, DAVIDsTEA in 2012 and it took off from there. I really started drinking/enjoying tea because it’s excellent to take to class in the morning and because I can’t handle coffee! (unless it’s a really good cappuccino or latte haha)

I enjoy a variety of herbal, white, green, oolong and black teas. I have also tried a few pu’erhs and matcha I am a bit sensitive to caffeine, but I find that in moderation I can still indulge in black teas and matcha.

Oh, and I have a severe peanut allergy and try to avoid most other nuts, just to be safe. Limits my tea choices a bit, but that’s ok. However I recently tried almonds and found out I can eat them, so I have been trying a few teas with them in them.

(as of 04/19/13)

95+: Absolute favorite, will try to always have it in stock, and when I don’t I pine over it!
90-94: Awesome teas, will probably purchase again a few times
80-89: Very good tea, may restock at some point
70-79: happy to have tried and will gladly finish, but not restock
60-69: not horrible, but not the best, will finish if I have some though
50-59: not a favorite, probably will have a tough time finishing the bag
-50: yuck. I don’t want to have it ever again.

I am happy to say that my caffeine intolerance seems to be subsiding! This is allowing me to try a wider variety of teas :)
