Oh Canada! This is my little cup of patriotism.

This Rooibos infusion is heavily spiked with Maple everything, again another infusion for those on the caffeine free kick, doesn’t hurt if you are craving something sweet too.

Dry this tea looks kind of like a bunch of little twigs or something, was my first Rooibos so I am assuming its just the type of plant. Weird looks aside it had a powerful maple smell that I fell in love with. Since I was a kid I was always a sucker for Maple, especially those Maple Cookies.

The final brew is golden brown, maybe even slightly reddish. It has a strong maple aroma to it, one could easily confuse it with maple syrup, heck if it was a bit thicker it would be great on waffles!

Tea, Earl Grey, Hot!

I will attempt to taste and comment on each and every blend offered from DAVIDsTEA and of course anything else that comes across my path.

I only drink tea brewed from loose leaf tea, and tend to sweeten my teas with a teaspoon of raw cane sugar per 8oz of tea and consider a cup either 12oz or 16oz depending on what mug I want to use.

I generally do not put milk in my tea’s; however sometimes I may make a ‘London Fog’ style drink or add milk to herbal infusions to add a bit more creaminess to it.

And I generally enjoy drink a nice hot tea while relaxing listening to some Led Zeppelin or Pink Floyd.

I am quite liberal with my Tea ratings, I take the smiley face to heart for judging. If I really like it then it will score a high grade regardless of the brand or if I can keep it in my cupboard or not. But to break it down further a bit more check this out:

0-10 – Wouldn’t drink it if I was dying.
10-20 – Are you sure this didn’t come out of a bag?
20-50 – There is hope for this tea…somewhere but not here
50-60 – Drinkable, but not stockable
60-70 – Ok, were onto something here!
70-80 – Wow you gotta try this
80+ I freaking love it, where can I buy it?
