I actually really like the little wooden box this came in. I’m looking forward to emptying it out and filling it with more treasures.

On the tea though, I’m not blown away, the base was initially overwhelming, and I couldn’t find the maple. After the cup cooled down to just warm, it was a decent. The blueberry flavor was blueberry and not offensively artificial, and the sweetness of maple came through after the blueberry faded. Satisfying, but really nothing more.

Bread update: I soaked my cranberries over night in Vanilla Creme EG and brown sugar with a touch of vanilla extract. Bread is due out of the oven in 53 minutes. Smells amazing, though.

A review of Maple Blueberry Tea by Metropolitan Tea Company, Ltd

Company: The Metropolitan Tea Company
Tea Name: Maple Blueberry Tea
Tea Type/Varietal: black
Region: India
Steeping Vessel/Amt Leaf: cup/ tea bag
Liquor Color: reddish
Leaf Characteristic:

  1. Steeping:

1st Steeping:
Water Temp: 200 Fahrenheit
Time: 5 minutes
I like this tea for its wonderful aroma. I use one tea bag and placing this in my cup I add in the boiled water and leaving it to steep for several minutes. This tea brews a very bright liquor and the teas’ aroma is that of maple; providing for headiness in the maple and syrupy when tasted.


2nd Steeping:
Water Temp: 200
Time: 3 minutes
My second cup of tea is similarly the same with a lessening in the taste for the maple and tea is still very bright reddish color; like wine almost. I taste more of the maple than the blueberry since I am not one to consume blueberry I don’t anything to compare it to.


Overall tasting notes: This is a wonderful tea that is easily blended with the maple and blueberry making for a good cup of tea. Tea is naturally sweet with not a need for anything else.

Classification: Year, and region of production; Product of India

Cup’s characteristic: sweet, smooth with a good body and blends very well with the maple and blueberry

Liquor color: bright reddish brown

Taste: tea taste sweetly; naturally sweetened with the maple

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 5 min, 0 sec

I got this from culinary teas not realizing it is a different brand of tea. It comes in bags and not the fancy kind. The tea smells very blueberry candy-y dry. Once it steeped, I took a few sips and realized that this would be much better iced. It’s chilling in my fridge now and I’ll update this when I’ve tried it. Hot, it was very much an artificially blueberry tea, which was disappointing. I think it has good cold brew potential. I hope…

FYI whatshesaid this one definitely wasn’t worth the wait :-(

whatshesaid

Awww :(
No maple?? It was worth it to try I suppose! Cross it off the list, at least.
I had no idea it was a different company!

OMGsrsly

Yeah, I had the plain maple one and was seriously disappointed. :( I have a MAPLE!!!!! tea from Steam Tea House in Vancouver that is so good. I like it with maple sugar in it. :)

Happiness!! Today the new update for Minecraft came out and I was able to spend my morning having fun with all the new features. Later in the day I was told by Ben that my favorite board game ever (Summoner Wars) is planning on releasing a box set where factions are being blended together for new and exciting combinations of strategies to master. I was also able to get some new dark grey and black Perler beads, so the Pokemon Challenge continues, it was a good day to be a Geek.

Today’s tea is Blueberry Maple Tea originally by Metropolitan Tea Co. but sold by The Blueberry Store, a delightfully themed store! Made from a blend of Ceylon Black Tea and natural flavors, this tea combines the taste of blueberries with maple syrup, just like my favorite waffles. The aroma is very sweet! It is very true to its name, combining sweet blueberries and maple syrup, these tea bags are giving me a serious breakfast craving. Who am I kidding, I eat blueberry waffles no matter what time of day it is! There is a slightly malty black tea aroma as well, but mostly it is all blueberry and maple sweetness.

Once the bag has been steeped the liquid has much more of a malty aroma, making it more like a tea and less like food. Have no fear, there is still a strong blend of maple and blueberry sweetness that is completely mouthwatering.

The initial taste is faintly sweet and bright, blending strong blueberries with a hint of maple syrup. I decided to go for cream and sugar, because this tea just begs for cream and sugar. With the additive the maple flavor is much stronger, dwarfing the blueberry flavor, kinda like what happens when you dump syrup all over a blueberry waffle. This tea is not really nuanced or complex, but it is deliciously sweet, and perfect for when you want a sweet tea to guzzle down first thing in the morning.
