drank Pancake Breakfast Black Tea by 52teas
1212 tasting notes

Ok, it’s been some time since I last had this. But I have a lot of it, so that’s okay. I just got these maple granules from Whispering Pines Tea, and so they are perfect to put in here! Extra maple without the syrup.

This is the best to go along with watching the first practice ever for the first United States Grand Prix in 5 years, eeeeee.

Black tea is all I want to drink today for some reason, and combine that with butter and syrup and a cakey taste and I am set.

Maple granules? Interesting. Can you buy them? Are they just crystallized maple syrup.

Maple granules sound incredibly dangerous for me. Like something I’d be eating by the handful during times when I am needing a sweet fix.

momo

Yeah, you can buy them from Whispering Pines and a couple other places. They’re dehydrated maple syrup. Of course as soon as I got them yesterday I had to try them out by themselves, so I know what you mean, LiberTEAS!

Have you ever had any of the maple sugar candy? It’s usually available in my local Whole Foods this time of year, and they are often shaped like maple leaves or something. Like these: http://www.maplecandyvt.com/store.php/products/maple-candy-leaf ???

Are these crystals anything similar to these? I love these candies!

momo

Oh those look amazing, I hope mine has those because I am going tomorrow looking for them. These are definitely different though, it’s almost like granulated sugar that tastes like maple syrup. So they melt in your mouth but probably nowhere near as nice and creamy as those candies would taste.

I went looking for myself, so I figured I’d share:

They also have honey granules!

I feel like I must try both. I also worry that, like marshmallows, these will end up in my gob long before they have a chance to sweeten my tea. [sigh] I am reigned by my sweet tooth.

Happy for you and the Grand Prix, you must be ecstatic!

Yes! I only wish I could be there!
