It’s funny that reading the other reviews, there are a couple comments about the base being really strong on this blend. I found the base to be rather watery tasting. But since this was a secondhand purchase, I don’t know how long the leaf has been sitting in its little baggy.
Other than that, I enjoyed this. The maple is strong, and you can never go wrong with a nice maple flavor. The cinnamon is the next strongest flavor and pairs well with the maple. I suppose I chose to drink this this morning because I wish fall were here, and the maple cinnamon is doing its best to help me pretend. There’s a buttery chocolatey kind of aftertaste too.
Maybe my palate is filling in the likely pairings, but I might taste a bit of clove? It’s nice, whether it’s there or not. The cinnamon sticks and the pumpkin sprinkles were a nice touch to making this blend fun.
