I added the to the EG version to this one and steeped them together, trying to hide the EG.

Yeah it worked – maple no EG!!! That worked for me. I think this is just ok – the maple is really simple – just sweet maple – wish there had been another note to break up the sweetness.
Thank you TheTeaFairy for sending these to me.

huh, not bad. this one was recouped from my winner’s tea expedition yesterday. it’s been a long time since i’ve had a bagged tea and honestly, i’ve become enough of a loose leaf snob that if i’d been using my literacy (notice i say IF) i likely wouldn’t have bought. i grabbed this one and a blueberry. really….. not bad. both teas carry a distinct cookie quality. i used two tea bags for my 16 oz mug and a 3 minute steep.

it has layers. the maple is more olfactory when it’s screaming hot, but becomes more tangible as taste as it cools.

don’t think i’ll buy again, but i have had far, far worse in my life!!!

LOL Too funny, I saw this one at my Winners today but didn’t buy it. I did buy a box of Mighty Leaf Tea – Organic African Nectar – it says “whole leaf pouches” but that might be just a fancy name for teabags. It’s funny how when confronted with a “wall” of tea we forget everything we’ve learned and just buy randomly. :)

i think i saw that one, lol. literacy was working there. apparently the word ‘pouches’ was working, but the word ‘bags’ was not. the blueberry from this company is quite nice…. haven’t gotten around to rating.

The first time I have a new black tea I like to try it plain first, even though I usually put milk and sometimes honey into mine. It’s sort of so I get an idea about the flavour without anything else messing with my perception. Yeah, I’ve got it all down to a science. ;)

This one is pretty plain actually, the Ceylon base is mostly what I taste, although there are sweet hints of maple syrup. It’s not harsh-tasting, other than that it’s a pretty generic Ceylon.

I bought this at a gift shop while I was in Banff. After I noticed that there was a tea collection at this shop, I just had to take a look at what they had. They were mostly ice wine and maple teas, so I had a hard time choosing which one to buy, but I ended up buying this one. It is a Ceylon tea that has a sweet maple scent which isn’t strong or weak, perhaps just right. The flavor though was a bit weaker than what I had expected, so I added some maple syrup to bring it to life and it sort of worked. It is somewhere between medium to heavy bodied, but feels light in terms of caffeine content.

Overall I feel this doesn’t taste as maple-y as it should. Maybe I’ve just been drinking too many herbal teas lately? I feel like there’s this maple tree earthiness I’m missing out on. I definitely taste the black tea in there though, and its delicious! At one point I was addicted to this tea.

I had this one today, but I know that I let it steep far too long. I found it to be a bit too strong for me. I think I’ll have to watch my steep time next time. I didn’t notice the maple flavour too much… but again, I think that’s because I let it stay for far too long.

I’ll rate it when I try again.

A friend gifted me a tin of this for my birthday. I don’t often drink a lot of bagged teas, but this one wasn’t bad. On her advice, I tossed in just a little sweetener to keep things interesting. When I pulled the tea bag I was, honestly, a bit concerned. The base was bitter, the maple absent, unimpressive.

However, as the tea started to cool, the base really receded and the maple flavours began to shine through. I think there may be something really interesting to this tea, I just need to play with it a bit and see what I can get it to do for me.

Now, I bought this tea quite a while ago, thinking it would actually taste like maple. until this evening, I have only ever drunk one cup of this tea, and I’m considering putting the rest in my compost. I’ll tell you why:

It smells delicious and inviting, even when it’s brewed, it smells strong super maple-y. But the taste is nothing like maple at all! Overall it is very bland and a bit bitter, like regular orange pekoe. This tea does not live up to its name at all! What a shame…. now excuse me while I go give the rest of the tea in the pot in my plants.

I became addicted to drinking this tea in the morning. It’s the perfect maple flavored tea that is not too sweet. I’m in the U.S. and, unfortunately, with shipping, it’s a bit too expensive to order from Canada.
