drank Maple Tea by Camellia Sinensis

2021 sipdown no. 48

This is a sad sipdown today, but I have to make room for the new CS teas! I completely forgot to add this one into my cart when I placed the order because I really thought I had more remaining than I did. Sigh, next order!

I really love this one. The maple is just maple sugar crystals against a great black Assam base and it just works perfectly. This is exactly what a maple tea should be in my mind.

We keep maple sugar crystals in the cupboard, so perhaps my remaining CS Assam Banaspaty will occasionally have those added in until I can re-order this one.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 4 min, 0 sec 3 g 14 OZ / 414 ML

I’ll have to put this one on my list of things to try from Camellia Sinensis. I love maple sugar in black tea but I usually add it to cheap grocery store tea. Maple sugar in better quality black tea sounds even tastier.

Bio

I live with my partner and our two bunnies: Callie and Ben, and two cats: Freyja and Ivan. I’m currently working on my MSc in biology and enjoying tea along the way!

I love straight and flavoured black teas and this is what I’m usually drinking.

I’m also happy to enjoy a cup of green or red rooibos (green preferable to red), herbals, oolongs, whites, and subtly flavoured greens. Other teas I’m happy to try at least once!

Likes:
Raspberry, rhubarb, passionfruit, and most fruits in general, maple, creaminess, cacao/dark chocolate, honey, coconut, and chai spices. I’m open to other flavoured teas but they can’t be cloying or fake/candy like.

Dislikes:
Any smokiness at all, stevia, too much blackberry leaf, flowers (rose and jasmine), and ginger (except in chai).

Flavours that can go either way:
Hibiscus, vanilla, and peach.
