In my mind, I’m running through clichéd polarities to describe where I sit with this brew.

Dry bag smells sickeningly sweet, dark and very spicy molasses gingerbread.

The steam is pretty similar but much brighter. Spicy ginger and fake maple (think donut icing) and something fruity like dates. I wonder how much of a role the monkfruit plays in this.

Taste is… It’s pure aroma. The only thing I truly taste is spicy, warming ginger and watery sweetness. I do taste spicy, woody cinnamon at the bottom of the cup.

Strange aftertaste kind of reminds me of Bengal Spice. Ginger burps. The aromas are stuck to my face and hair and in my nostrils.

I can’t figure out why I think I might like it. I drank two teabags in a row.

Edit: Definite nope.

Two tea bags I received from derk. Thank you!

In aroma it indeed reminds me maple syrup, at least that one I was lucky enough to try in Finland (cheap stuff, it was said it is from Canada, supermarket brand). It was my first and last experience with it, and it is actually 4 years old one. But when I smelled it, it was exactly that. Ah well Vaahterasiirappi .

Anyway back to Czech Republic. It’s quite cold, around 10°C only, cloudy and I need some tea which reminds me this! And this looks most promising.

The aroma, as I said, reminds me maple syrup. Little bit of ginger, but luckily not that much.

Taste is more watery than I thought. But it is maple-y for sure, little heat of ginger is there as well. Quite sweet, but somehow expected. Warming inside, smooth and coating the throat which is welcomed in this chilly weather. I feel quite chilly as well though we are heating up.

It is pleasant tea to these days.

I have one box of this at home and one at work. It’s been so hot in Missouri, your weather sounds pretty delicious right now!

White Antlers

Martin, so glad lad derk sent you some of this tea! I had you in mind when I sent it to her. : )

White Antlers

Oops. Mis-type. I know that derk isn’t a lad.

Martin Bednář

I can imagine gmathis, I would do the same, if it was available here quite well. I can’t order several boxes from Amazon and keeping it all at home (as a student who don’t work yet).

White Antlers: ah, it’s from you then actually? Then thank you applies to you as well. It was written with derk’s handwriting, double wrapped so it won’t affect other teas with its aroma. I need to check out, if I want to travel to Vermont as well. Where is Vermont actually?

White Antlers

Yes, Martin, that was part of the big box of Sweish Death Purge teas I sent to derk. I asked her to make up a package for you, but I did not specify what she was to include. I assumed she knew your tastes better than I did. Vermont is on the East coast. It’s one of the New England states-the others being Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Connecticut. Coastal, lots of history and incredibly beautiful. Put it on your list! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_England

White Antlers

That was supposed to be Swedish Death Purge. I’m typing too fast today…

derk

Haha, we had the same tea today :)

Martin Bednář

White Anters: as I said, thank you for that! I guess I never had chance to try it as ordering few boxes from Amazon is quite no for me, especially when it is something I never tried.
As of Vermont & New England, it was rather rhetorical question — I had some common thought where it could be, but not exactly. It certainly looks like nice place to visit (as lots of US and other countries as well); I wanted to see Maine mostly because The Fort by Bernard Cornwell I read in Finland.
derk: apparently so; but why not? I just expect you had warmer day though!

ashmanra

Growing up, I never knew of anything but maple syrup or brown sugar syrup my mom used to make for pancakes and waffles. She heated water, brown sugar, white sugar, and a touch of vanilla on the stove and once even bought maple flavoring for it. My father liked Dixie Dew syrup, which was a cane syrup and is sadly no longer available,

What do you put on waffles and pancakes there, Martin? Berry syrups? Sugar syrups?

Also, a big treat at night now and then was to mix a little hot maple syrup (or pancake syrup) with peanut butter, stir together well, and dip bread in it. A big glass of cold milk accompanied it!

Martin Bednář

ashmanra: we don’t eat much of waffles here, so what I recall, mostly it’s only vanilla ice cream here. But I had waffles only once and that was in carnival park. And pancakes — well, we have them bit different. It is rather like French crêpes than thick American ones. And we fill them with jams, chocolate cremes or other cremes; berry syrups would be nice as well.

That peanut buter and maple syrup sounds great!

Thanks so much for the swap, AJRimmer!  I like this one!  It might be up there with my CS favorites.  It has a sweetness to it that doesn’t seem like stevia to me, as far as I can tell.  And then there is a SPICY kick which must be only ginger?  But the ingredients in the teabag were like a fine dust, so maybe more of the spice of the ginger is imparted that way?  It seems simple, but it’s different.  Not really MAPLE but what tea is ever actually maple?   The second steep had less of a kick, but plenty of sweetness. With the kick, I’m glad I only used one teabag at a time.
Steep #1  // 1 teabag for full mug // 18 minutes after boiling  // 2-3 minute steep
Steep #2  // just boiled //  3 1/2 min

I discovered this over the winter months and really like it.

When I first reviewed this last year, I noted that it’s maple first, then ginger. Allow me to reverse the order. (Hey, if you’ve read my reviews over the years, I’m nothing if not inconsistent!) Gently sweet, but not overdone.

It’s still a very nice autumn option, which I need to try with milk. This would latte nicely.

ashmanra

I would prefer maple first! I wonder how it would be as a latte sweetened with maple syrup?

gmathis

Couldn’t hurt!

teaqueen

I adore this one. Perfect low maintenance fall blend.

gmathis

I am all about the low maintenance.

Inkling

I’m not usually a fan of CS, but this one actually sounds pretty tempting!

This one has that familiar strong licorice background that a lot of bagged herbal teas seem to have. The other main flavor is the ginger that isn’t strong enough to be spicy, but it’s very present. In some sips, I feel like I can taste a bit of maple, though I’m not sure if that’s just my imagination. I bought this tea looking for a strong maple flavor, so I’m a little disappointed. It’s easy to drink, but nothing special. Whenever I drink it, I do find myself wishing I were drinking other teas instead.

This was a test try, hoping it would not be a pricey fail. It wasn’t. I think its a wonderful tasting tea. I got it mostly for the Ginger and my allergies. Its one of my faves right next to Vanilla Fireside

I’ll be in the minority on this one, I guess— I love it.
It has just the perfect amount of maple sugar in it to give it the woodsy, butterscotchy maple flavor without being sickeningly sweet.
The ginger is warming and gives it a nice spicy edge.
You can’t really oversteep it— it’s very low maintenance and suitable for busy work environments, like most CS teas.
I brewed this with hot water from the office coffee machine in my Tervis. I’m drinking this decidedly autumnal/ wintery brew in the middle of summer for the anti-inflammatory properties of the ginger. This honestly tastes loads better than a straight ginger or lemon ginger infusion, or the turmeric ginger tisane I’ve tried (although the turmeric ginger tea works the best medicinally).

It smells a lot stronger than it tastes, and there’s something artificial about it, yet I find it goes down easy first thing in the morning, I think because it smells so sweet. I use one teabag in my giant travel mug, so it’s very dilute. Brewed in a regular-sized mug, the fake flavor is way over the top.

16oz to one teabag, 195f, i didn’t take the bag out. I don’t mind this, but I did leave it to cool significantly before indulging. The maple scent is strong but only adds a touch of sweetness. The ginger is not too spicy, but is present. I would not sweeten this tea, but I will drink it again.
