Definitely lives up to its name – maple and ginger scent permeates the packaging, and upon steeping, those are the major flavors this herbal tea delivers. The ginger is nice and spicy, and the maple is a tad on the “syrup” side but not overly sweet or artificial. I find double-bagging and a slightly longer brew time really brings out the spiciness of the ginger, which helps the maple not be overly sugary. It’s a good cool-weather option (I can’t imagine enjoying this iced). If you see a box and it interests you, I think it’s a pretty safe buy.
