From DAVIDsTEA

Call us stereotypical Canadians, but we love maple syrup. And this sweet and satisfying oolong tea is dripping with it. With buckwheat and roasted chicory, it tastes just like a stack of pancakes drenched in rich amber maple. Whether you sip it straight up or as a frothy tea latte, your weekend brunch will never be the same again.

Apple, oolong tea, candied papaya (papaya, sugar), raisins, buckwheat seeds, roasted chicory root, maple sugar, stevia extract, natural and artificial flavouring.

Price per 50g: $9.98

The original Oh Canada blend from DavidsTea has the best maple cream flavor and I have hoarded a large amount of it. The original has no chunks of fruit in it, just lots of rooibos, a few maple leaf shaped sprinkles, and tons of maple cream scent and flavor. The new Oh Canada is mostly chunks of dried fruit and has a weird cinnamon taste. Maple Syrup Oolong tastes closer to the original Oh Canada. Maple Syrup Oolong has almost no oolong pieces in the 100g I purchased, and it appears to be mostly dried apples, raisins and nut pieces (the chicory root?). So this gets closer to the taste of the original Oh Canada than the current iteration of it. It’s like a softer, lighter maple cream taste with nutty undertones. Reminds me a bit of Forever Nuts as well, because of that nutty impression. Still, I miss the intense maple flavor of the original Oh Canada.

I went over the border to Sarnia, and took it as an opportunity to be an innocuous liberal going to Canada for the sole purpose of organic vegan food and tea. I got a bunch of sachets of some of the staples like Forever Nuts and Cardamom French Toast, but I had this one to go. I didn’t expect it to be nuanced, but it was super sweet and tasty as you’d expect from a Maple Syrup flavored tea. Kayla, the person who served it, said it tasted like pancakes, and it did. This one would be especially awesome during the fall.

Iced Latte Sipdown

I brewed this up this afternoon and only really took a sip just now. It’s sweet but mapley. The chicory and stevia weren’t as offensive as I thought they may be but the sweetness is a lot.

This tea was not what I had expected – it had a fair number of other ingredients that I wasn’t expecting. However, it was pretty good. Nicely nutty and sweet; I’m not sure if I’d guess “pancakes with syrup”, but that’s ok. The stevia surprisingly didn’t bug me too much, but the tea was a little sweeter than I’d like to have on a regular basis.

This kind of tastes like caramel popcorn. Not really getting the maple. Yeah, this is the kind of tea I enjoy trying a sample of but would be fine with never having again. I prefer Oh Canada, which actually tastes like Maple and is pleasant enough to have frequently. But I guess I could leave a separate review about that.

I am a great lover of all things maple. I had a lovely maple porter with dinner this evening! So, needless to say, I had to toss this one in with my last David’s Tea order, because maple.

It’s not a great tea, but I really didn’t expect it to be. There is a nice maple flavor, and a bit of butteriness that takes it to a “pancake” sort of place. Overall, the flavor is quite artificial.

I do wish David’s would top putting stevia in their teas. As a person who never adds sweetener to tea, it’s a bit off-putting…

The base tea is slightly roasty, but otherwise not noteworthy.

I haven’t picked this one up yet, but am really disappointed to hear there’s stevia in it :( I felt it would either be a big hit or a huge miss… sounds like the latter. I’ll still try it though!

I often feel compelled to try anything and everything maple-y. Otherwise, I probably wouldn’t have bought this one as I am often too disappointed by dessert-ish teas. I have better luck with fruity flavors.

I honestly am not sure I’ve ever had a good maple tea, come to think of it…

First off, I’ll say that this tea is nice, it’s just not my thing. The artificial sweetener can clearly be tasted. Initially upon steeping, it tastes like nothing but butter, but after it slightly cools you can actually taste the rest of it. The maple is there but not overwhelming. The papaya is definitely being used as a sweetener and gives it a sort of bizarre overall flavour as a hot tea.

It’s very musty smelling, from the artificial butter-like flavour, but otherwise is good. It was pleasant – I just won’t be buying more of it. It’s really good as a latte, though.

I tried this hot, in-store, and I am still on the fence as to whether or not I should buy some tea to take home. The maple syrup aroma was very distinct, but the sweet taste of it was warring with other fruit flavours in my mouth, and mostly I felt confused after every sip.

OMG this tea is SO delicious as a hot latte! Tastes like maple syrup and pancakes. I got my boyfriend to try it and he said it tasted like french toast. I can see myself going through a lot of this tea-I hope this one sticks around for a long, long time!

Update: I tried this as an iced latte. It was good, but made as a hot latte is better.

Sipping on a mug of this one currently; it’s especially buttery today so that quality combined with the rich maple notes are making me think very strongly/clearly of maple or caramel popcorn. Sort of like Cracker Jack!? I’m greatly enjoying the cup though; there’s something very pleasant and delicious as well as comforting about that rich buttery maple note.

Friendly reminder that I do not numerically rate DAVIDsTEA blends as I’m currently employed there and it would be an obvious conflict of interest. Any blends you see with numerical ratings were rated prior to my employment there. These reviews are a reflection of my personal thoughts regarding the teas, and not the company’s.
