I picked this up at a little tea shop the last time I was in Cape May. I thought it would be nice to have this autumn, and then, of course, I brought it home and forgot about it. Me thinks perhaps I need a better storage/organization system for my teas. But I digress….
This tea is good, but not great. There’s a nice maple flavor, and the base tea has a slight maltiness that’s nice. There was no creamy note as far as I could tell, so I added a touch of milk. The result was a perfectly enjoyable cup, but also an easily forgettable one.
I’m going to try to remember to use up the rest of this tea over the next few months because I think this is a tea that’ll lose its flavor and body if it’s not used in a timely manner. Now if I could just remember to remember!
