Maple flavoured oolong sounds pretty sweet to me, but “Maple Syrop” is actually quite balanced. However, I don´t know whether the pieces of real walnut and almond really make a huge difference in taste. (Maple) syrop-y in nose, in mouth this oolong reminds me a lot of a caramel flavoured black tea very popular (or at least it was popular 20 odd years ago) in France, called “Marco Polo”. I used to enjoy this Marco Polo a lot, especially on a Winter´s afternoon, and so, I can only rejoice in Maple Syrop being available in my tea cupboard.

From Bruu´s website :
Canada in a cup – fine walnuts and the flowery Oolong tea, the sweet maple flavour unfolds to its fullest. This composition promises exceptional indulgence!
How our drink hits the senses: Whilst sitting dry in its container waiting to become your BRUU; One sniff, I’m in Canada eating pancakes loaded with maple syrup.
As the drink is BRUUing; After the initial syrupy hit, the earthy Oolong and nuts come through.
The taste journey; It’s sweet, it’s nutty, it’s smooth – what’s not to love here?!

Not really sure if I want to try it, as I am trying to avoid sweet flavours, but… the nuts?!

Ilse Wouters

they make the loose leaf tea beautiful, don´t know + not sure whether they have an impact in taste.

Nuts are a surprisingly common addition to maple blends; maybe because “Maple Nut” is a pretty common flavour combination in Canada? Maybe because some nuts, like walnut, actually have a slight natural maple-ish taste? I’d be curious to see if this maple flavour would get a Canadian stamp of approval, though. I’m not sure I’ve ever had a maple tea from a non-Canadian company that’s really nailed the flavour…

I can agree with you there…and it works for the personal taste as well : all the Canadians I know just love maple syrop, for the other people around (like me) it´s nice once in a while, but we get fed up with it quite easily, I think. As a Belgian I´m always completely stunned by how the North-Americans treat our waffles when we only add a bit of glacing sugar or a bit of butter.

Bio

Introduced to tea by my sister-in-law in my country of birth = Belgium more than 30 years ago, I still love tea, mainly black, which I enjoy without sugar or milk. Having lived in UK, near good tea shops (e.g. Betty´s all over Yorkshire), I tend to buy most of my tea in bulk from tea shops (as such, most of these are not represented in my on-line cupboard). Nowadays, I live in Spain where tea gives me another sensatory bliss (as wine or beer or coffee can give me too).
