When you add the word “maple” to tea or blend’s name, it has a pretty high chance of going home with me!
Description: “This decadent herbal blend has rich notes of maple syrup with hints of walnut and apple. You’re left with a sweet smoothness reminiscent of maple candy!”
Instructions: 1 teaspoon | 6-8 oz boiling water | 4-6 mins
Review: I love maple candies. The flavour is just delightful! When I visited Tealish with a friend, this blend caught my eye (and nose). It was nutty, sweet, and floral. The dry blend was a nice mixture of large pieces of walnut, apple, oranges, etc., along with a scattering of floral petals. After a 5 minute infusion, the wet blend smelled mostly of apples and was mildly tart. The yellow amber liquor also smelled fruity, with a hint of nuts.
The first note for me was nutty, followed by roasted, fruity, and caramel. The liquor had a slightly thicker syrupy texture and the nutty walnut note lingered on the tongue. I found that when it cooled, the liquor tasted more “maple” like. This blend definitely fell into the dessert category and I liked that it was herbal because that means that I can enjoy it at any time (3.5/5 rating)!

Question of the post: Do you like dessert teas?
I don’t like dessert teas! They’re just too sweet for me! I try to make them iced teas but it doesn’t always work. 🙁
That is fair! I generally shy from them but this one wasn’t overly sweet which is why I liked it! I think it would be a nice iced tea as well.
