teaguys-maple-sugar.jpg The vender website describes this tea as a "rich black tea blend
flavored with authentic maple syrup." Surprisingly enough, this was an accurate description-definitely rich with an authentic maple flavor!

The scent of this tea had a fantastic captivating aroma. It's strong
maple scent was homey and comforting just as it was exciting-it was
difficult not to instantly want to just brew a cup just to have a sip,
just to see if this was real! The aroma was so promising, it almost
confused me-maple sugar tea that actually smelled like the name? Well..

As I first took a sip without any additives-no milk or sugar-I thought
"well, this kind of tastes like maple." It was not exactly the flavor I
was expecting. While sweet, the rich flavor I had expected was lacking,
almost watered down in a sense. I would comment on how the tea generally
tasted at this point, but it was a bit difficult to gauge if I liked the
basic flavoring of this tea or not at this point considering that it did
not meet my high expectations.

Then, I added the milk and sugar. This tea was made for milk! The milk
and sweetener complemented this tea perfectly. The only way this tea
would have been even more perfect was if I had some sweetened condensed
milk on hand.

As far as I am concerned, this is not a low-calorie beverage! Unless if
you use a zero-calorie sweetener and milk or creamer, this tea can get
pretty calorie laden if you add sweetened condensed milk-I could even
see this tea pairing well with vanilla ice cream!

The soothing rich flavor of maple is perfect for the evening as it may
compel you to curl up on a comfortable couch as to fully enjoy a moment
of solitude.

With the additives, the tea had a creamy maple flavor that, to my
pleasant surprise, was very rich and authentic. I was afraid that there
would be a fake element to the taste, but that was proven to not be the
case.
