I’m starting to realize that 52Teas has a very distinct maple flavour; it’s syrupy and sweet but with a roundness to it that I quite enjoy – it’s a bit boozy, too. I like it a lot here when paired with this more roasty tasting oolong. The body and mineral notes of the tea compliment that top note sweetness really well; and there’s just enough of a nuttiness from the oolong that it kind of makes me loosely think of a cheesecake crust. Add to that a perfect kiss of creaminess, and this is a pretty darn good stab at a Maple Cheesecake. Regardless, I love this maple flavour and even if it’s not the most accurate it’s very tasty!
