drank Maple Taffy by Bayswater Tea Co.
2284 tasting notes

Ok, ok… I did it. I forgot CrowKettle’s teas at home (I’m so sorry!) and then bought lots at Bayswater.

This one ended up in my bag somehow at the last minute. It smelled SO GOOD! And luckily it tastes good as well. Yes, there’s cinnamon in it. And popcorn. And red peppercorns (actually related to cashews). It looks really similar to the picture of the same tea from The Whistling Kettle.

Although it smells REALLY SUPER AMAZING, I think I might prefer the Steam Maple Seduction better. (I didn’t stop there today because of the rain.)

Yep, I think I do prefer the other tea. I’m not saying this isn’t good, because it’s really tasty… but I like the other one better.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 3 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

Damn, I’m going to pick some of this up next time I’m there. Hope you two had a great time!

I can send you some, instead of putting it all in The Box!

We met up and did breakfast at Whole Foods. Heh. :) It was delicious, and also it was great to chat with the owner of Bayswater. She seemed pretty horrified about flavoured high quality silver needle, or even silver tip puerh. :) Might have to bring some fancy fancy stuff in for her. They also have a darjeeling that smelled AMAZING and I’d probably steep as a green…

Thanks! But I think I am going to make a trip to Vancouver once I get back from the Prairies. Her stuff is so decently priced. :)

Sounds like a good time!

OMGsrsly

That works too!

I don’t remember enough about Maple Seduction to know if I prefer it to this one, but in pinch this is good (and almost gone).

I think the owner needs a lot more persuading when it comes to branching out with white tea. Bring in some Watermelon Xylophone, White Rhino, etc. :/

OMGsrsly

Yes. More interesting whites and more interesting oolongs. I can’t believe that people who drink it for health benefits wouldn’t want it to taste good too.
