Unearthed this one which I bought a year ago at our local tea festival. Conveniently, it was still in the tea festival shopping bag which made it easy to locate and as our annual festival date is rapidly approaching again, I needed to get busy. With my tea situation being the way it is, I am indeed starting to wonder whether I have any business at all going to the tea festival this year.

Now that I’ve covered the context, now about the tea. Mostly smokey, but nicely so. I don’t detect any maple, not even when I squint, though that might indeed be what is softening the smoke. I am guessing that the base here is a blend of Lapsang and possibly Keemun. There is the slightest bit of sweetness on the tail end of the sip. And the sweetness creeps up as you continue on with your cup adding legitimacy to the maple concept. I like it and will not have any difficulty finishing off the rest of the bit that I have left.

Happily on steep number three.

If I do end up going to the tea festival, I might just seek out more of this if the vendor is there.

An interesting one this is! I wish I knew what the base tea was. Maybe Tj gave me a card with it? I need to sort my bag.
Anyhow. A bit too astringent/sourish yet very easy to drink. The maple is more of an impression than a flavour note. I think that may be where the sourness comes from. It was ok, I didn’t mind that.
I couldn’t stop myself from going back for more infusions. I made it through four, each one better than the last. Fifth infusion is sitting in my fridge now. Noms!
Second infusion was good. I experimented and added a quarter teaspoon of smoked honey. it paired quite nicely, adding further depth and a touch of sweetness that enhanced the maple.
My fave so far is the last infusion, with the astringency giving way to a freshwater note that pairs really well with the faded smokiness. Overall a winner.

Good to know. I haven’t even opened that bag of things that wandered home with me. If I wait a few more days, it’ll be like Christmas. :)

hehe. You have more selfcontrol than I!
