From The Whistling Kettle

We were fascinated by the popular Canadian tradition of making Maple Taffys. Heated maple syrup is poured onto a layer of snow, which rapidly cools the syrup and thickens it. The result: a wonderful delicacy, which melts on your tongue! Of course, we have added real, dehydrated maple syrup and a hint of cinnamon to our creation. This sweet delicacy will also surely put you into the mood for a snowball fight thanks to the added white popcorn snowballs in this blend.

Ingredients: black tea, cinnamon pieces, dehydrated maple syrup, cinnamon rods, flavoring, popcorn, white cornflower blossoms.

For some reason I decided it’d be a good idea to buy 4 oz of this tea. The problem is that it has two very edible ingredients: popcorn and maple syrup bits that melt in your mouth. My boyfriend practically had to take the bag away while I’m eating the syrup bits like candy.

This tastes a lot more like a cinnamon kettle corn that it tastes like anything maple syrupy. Still tasty, but the cinnamon is just a bit too strong, and I could do without the popcorn. Next time I’ll try a cup without any popcorn and see.

Or I could add more maple syrup.

sounds delicious

I agree! It’s kind of strange that it has popcorn in it though.

I just tried it today and I bought a bag of it too! Yum!

Drank this at The Whistling Kettle this afternoon with lunch and fell in love. I tried it without cream and sugar to start. But this tea was WAY better with a little cream and rock sugar. The maple and taffy flavors just popped with the additions. I walked out of there with 4oz. :)

This was also my tea of the evening to enjoy while watching the season finale of Downton Abbey. I won’t say more about the episode. But I will say I enjoyed sipping this through the first hour.

It was definitely an interesting season finale. I’m ready for season four already!

This sample came from momo!

What a fun looking tea! There’s huge chunks of cinnamon sticks, bits of popcorn, and maple brittle bits. Oh. And of course tea.

This cup tastes a lot more buttery-cinnamon-y-tea-y than maple-y. The butter and cinnamon flavor is really good, though. Calming and smooth and the buttery flavor and texture definitely helps in capturing the essence of taffy. Unfortunately the maple comes up really light.

Luckily maple syrup to the rescue!

Oh my oh my. This is really delightful with the maple syrup and it doesn’t need too much. It retains the smooth, almost butteriness and it tones down the cinnamon quite a lot. But most of all, it adds maple. Yum.

Ever since I gave birth to my baby girl (6 months ago!), my love for tea has been on the decline. I haven’t had time to truly enjoy making and sipping tea. On top of that, my husband and I moved to my parents’ house. They have a keurig. I had succumbed to it! Recently, I have been getting into tea again.

Anyway, today I decided to try this sample. It pains me to have so much tea sitting around! This one smells faintly of sweet syrup. There was one piece of cinnamon and popcorn in this. I was very excited about that. Upon brewing, the cinnamon wasn’t very overpowering. In fact, it was well-blended. This tea didn’t need any additives at all. It was naturally sweet. The black tea base wasn’t overpowering either. Good tea blend overall. Next time I will try to brew this for longer and add milk to see if it changes the flavor at all.

I didn’t realize you had a baby – congratulations!

Thank you Amy oh ! :)

Maybe the problem is partially practical. Hot tea and a baby…dangerous! Try cold brewing loose tea. The hydration is good and tea can be calming.

This tea came in at my local tea shoppe, Gold Leaf Spice & Tea, the week before I moved. The owner posted it and I had to have it! So I stocked up on it! Anyways… I had this tea this morning and oh man are those cinnamon pieces large:D Half my thumb! I had 2 pieces of popcorn and one cinnamon slice in my steep and I loved it! I had it without sugar and cream and the second steep I added both! I have to say though I might add a little more maple next time because I could not make out the maple. It was a sweet black tea with a kettle corn and cinnamon addition. I really enjoyed this one and I see myself definitely having to make a call and have this shipped to me once I run out, or stock up when I visit:) Thank you Gold Leaf Spice & Teas for introducing me to this one!

I was scared of this one based on the scent of the dry leaf. I’m very maple picky and it smelled a little artificial! Also there are large pieces of popcorn?! Haha! Anyway, steeped up this makes a decent enough sweet breakfast tea :) Kind of reminds me of french toast. Neither the cinnamon or the maple is overpowering. Not something I’ll buy but it was certainly fun to try on this dreary Sunday morning at work all by myself! Thanks again BrewTEAlly Sweet for sending me so many fun teas to try. I love trying new teas!

There are pieces of popped popcorn in it? That’s different. :-)

This one is a sample from BrewTEAlly Sweet! thanks so much! I’ve wanted to try this one for ages. There is popcorn here! I woke up thinking butterscotch, and I was trying to think of a tea that might fit with that craving. This one works more than any other teas I have, I think! It’s maple, which helps. Also cinnamon. This is tasty but it brews too light for my brain to be awake to read these Tournament books! It’s sweet, it does taste like maple and cinnamon. I can’t really taste any black tea at all. A bit of flavor from the two pieces of popcorn that fell in my infuser. It’s good but it needs a stronger black tea base! It reminded me of another tea I’ve tried… and sure enough, Tealux’s Maple Splash even has the same description. ah well, I have samples of both teas then! (Which is fine since reading the tasting note for the other, it said I wouldn’t mind buying two ounces of it!)

I haven’t been reading tasting notes and I miss them! Trying to catch up on books….

Dustin

The only maple teas I have tried taste more like table syrup. Are the two you mention distinctly maple?

Tea Sipper

I don’t know… they’d probably taste like table syrup to you. Maybe I’m stretching my imagination. :D
