Maple?


These teas can resemble virtually any flavor imaginable.

Maple?

So way back when, someone gave my mom some somewhat fancy bagged tea that was maple flavored. She split it with me and it was pretty darn good. Anyway, I'm still a sucker for anything maple flavored and wondered if anyone had stumbled across maple flavored tea and where?

Duh, I didn't think to do a search. :roll: Where was my head? Thanks for the link - and the reminder about the joys of the internet! :)

This might sound a little weird, but you could always try adding a bit of maple syrup (in place of sugar) to a black tea. I just might have to give that a try myself!

Ooh, I like that idea... I mean, it'd have pretty much the same consistency as honey. I think I will have to try that too.

Maple syrup in black tea is really tasty. I tried it this weekend with some that we had left over from breakfast. You get a bit of the maple flavor and that brings out the natural sweetness of the tea.

What type of black tea did you drink it with? I have some keemun and some ceylon. I don't think it would work too well with the keemun but wonder if it would be too strong for the light fruit flavor of the ceylon, so I haven't broken out the syrup yet. Of course, there is always PG Tips. I do have some of that.

Lupicia used to offer a tea called Kuromitsu Kinako. I think at one time they called it Sweet Tokyo, but it looks like by either name it's gone from their lineup now. It probably got pulled during the thinning of their tea lineup. It is a flavored green with kinako, brown sugar, and maple syrup. Or at least that's what it tastes like to me. If you want some I still have some left. (I'm not terribly fond of it)

I used a no-name ceylon from the local organic store. I put just enough maple syrup to lightly cover the bottom of the cup. My cup has a small base though, so that measurement might vary. The tea itself was brewed for about three minutes. The maple syrup that I used was the good, natural stuff from a maple farm nearby so it wasn't overpowering.

Yes please? I would love to try some. Though if I get hooked, not being able to find more would be very sad!

Thanks for the info - I will have to try that. I've got a lower grade ceylon that I'll try it with.
