Backlogging and sample sipdown! Going to keep this one brief…
This one smells a lot like maple, with hints of vanilla/cream and the black tea base.
Taste wise, this one was nice. It wasn’t WOW!, but it was smooth and tastey (which is sometimes all I’m looking for). The maple was probably the strongest flavor, followed by the black tea base, with just a hint of vanilla/cream throughout the sip. There is also a slight floral aspect to the cup. I think this would be a nice fall tea. Sweet, smooth, and warming. I’d try it again, but it’s not a cupboard staple. Maybe some cinnamon would make this a little more interesting?
NOTE: This one gets bitter very easily. The recommended steep time of 4 minutes is a bit high for my tastes.
