I’ve had this tea 3 or 4 times at a local tea room, and it’s been lovely. It’s nice clear, but it’s better with milk & sugar. I bought some loose leaf because I’ve enjoyed it so much, but first impressions upon opening the bag weren’t great. It smelled very smoky, and there was almost no trace of the maple at all. Tasted better once I’d brewed it, but I’m worried I used too much tea and brewed for too long.

The first steep was actually pretty good, although the smoky scent still lingered. I resteeped the same leaves about 8 hours later…bad idea, don’t recommend it. Had to add a ton of sugar and a bit of milk to make it drinkable.

My journey into the world of tea has only just started.

I grew up on Twinnings Earl Grey and Tetley Orange Pekoe, but new friends and interests have led me into the world of herbal teas, tisanes, and my first loose-leaf.

My tea-goal right now is to find a way to make the perfect Sweet Thai iced tea in the comfort of my own home. We used to have a Thai placed that would make it to-go, but sadly they closed and then re-opened too far away to go just for a drink.

As for non-tea things, I make chainmaille jewellery and collect ball-jointed dolls (BJDs)
