From Tropical Tea Company

A Fall favorite, Maple Creme Black Tea is an exquisite maple tea with sweet caramel flavor notes and a twist of creamy smoothness. You will for sure need to stock up on this tea for the super cold days!!

I didn’t get huge amounts of maple from Tropical Tea Company’s straight Maple tea, so I suppose it is no surprise that I don’t get tons out of this one either. Instead, I get more… calendula cookie. Maybe with a little maple extract added to the cookie mix, but only to the point of making me think, “Hmm, what is that added flavor that makes this not your everyday, plain ole cookie?” instead of making me think “Mmm, maple cookie.” Obviously, I would prefer maple cookie.

Anyway, if this tea had been named Calendula Sugar Cookie (Without Much Sugar), I would have been fully on board and this log would have included the words “hit”, “nail” and “head”. But this is named Maple Creme so I’m just sort of eh about it. While the plain Maple isn’t knock-my-socks-off good, I definitely prefer it over this one.

Seems like a good tea but nothing terribly remarkable about it. A bit of a dry note to the aftertaste but not bad. Enjoyable, can’t really think of any descriptors for the flavor though – tastes like… tea.

I don’t taste any maple…just a really really slight hint of some sort of nutty flavor. It’s good if you just think of it as a plain black tea, but I wouldn’t run out and pick this up if you love dessert teas and fun flavors. Honestly, you pay $3 for 2oz of tea, so you get what you pay for. It’s a little almondy, which is pleasant.

Picked this up at a little tea shop in Long Grove, IL (Beans and Leaves) during Chocolate Festival (it’s exactly like it sounds). It smelled heavenly in the jar and I was sad they only had an ounce left.

I don’t know if there was something about the bag that smelled but when I got it home it started smelling a bit chemically and I’ve put off trying it because of it. Today when I tried it I got a little of that flavor, not enough for me to write it off completely, but it might be a while before I try it again. Some days I’m just sensitive to chemical flavoring as my Earl Grey Creme tasted off to me as well. Hoping it gets better.
