Oh, my does this smell awesome or what? I am pretty enthusiastic about maple syrup. But I am also very unfamiliar with maple syrup, so feel free to disregard my impressions.

This tastes nearly as awesome as it smells. I can not really tell apart the caramel from the toffee taste and those two tastes from the maple syrup. To me, maple syrup taste is wonderfully exotic and plain wonderful, full stop. But and there is a but, there was something a bit artificial, a bit cloying about the scent, it lingered and lingered and seemed one-note rather than complex.

The tea base underneath is green rooibos with honeybush and just does not have the same strength, depth than red rooibos. It might be a better base for non-rooibos fans.

Lovely idea, a good tea, though it somehow misses being a perfect hit with me. Perhaps my opinion will change as I brew the rest of the package and I am sure I will and won´t take too long about it.

Inconstant tea drinker – I mostly drink tea when not too hot. I hang around steepster much more frequently in (northern hemisphere) cold season. Experimenting with cold steeping, for summer.

I like all sorts of tea, flavoured and unflavoured, though I am picky.

I am one of those people who actually loves Lapsang Souchong. I am not crazy about Earl Grey, in general. I don´t quite get Darjeeling teas, but I am exploring.

I like rooibos, though not all bases. I loathe hibiscus. I do not like fennel/liquorice/anise in blends or teas with chicory. I am picky about what I consider true cinnamon.

As you can probably tell from my cupboard, the brands I find more interesting right now are Mariage Fréres and Thé-o-Dor.

I am always willing to try anything new. I am now particularly interested in single origins.
