Received this in a swap a while back. It’s enjoyable. I’m getting the nice baked notes of a pastry and can catch hints of the custard. No maple though. It’s ok though, it’s still pretty good!

“Tasty! Yes...not overly maple or creamy or anything but just tasty. It's sweet - mostly from the Rooibos and a pinch of smoothness but not milky or creamy, per say. I do think I can tasty more...” Read full tasting note
Continuing our tradition of bringing you guilty-pleasure baked goods in tea form, here’s our take on a custard-filled maple long john (one of my personal guilty-pleasures). Sweet, caffeine-free honeybush blended with marigold petals and natural flavors. Sweet, maple-y, bake-y goodness in a guilt-free, caffeine-free and 100% vegan treat!

I was really pleased to see this one pop back up again since I missed it when it was first blended. I love custard, pastries, maple and honeybush so this blend sounds like a dream!
Sipping… Yet again all I taste is honeybush with a very mild maple flavor and a bit of sweetness. I really don’t know where I am supposed to find the custard or long john.. but they’re definitely not in the cup. It’s not a bad cup of tea, but if I wanted plain honeybush, I’m sure that I could find it for less money.
As much as I love 52Teas blends, I really don’t think I’ll try their honeybush blends anymore since my tastebuds recognize them as plain honeybush. Disappointing.
Trying to backlog some today….This one I love love love. Maple is so delicious in tea. I love having this one in the evening when I am craving a sweet treat. (I have to say tea has definitely saved me some calories these days) Anyway I love Frank’s honeybush blends and this one is no exception. It is exactly what I have come to expect from him. If you let it cool just a little bit you really get the full maple longjohn flavor. Yum!
