I received this tea as part of a Christmas gift basket. I agree with other reviewers that calling it a herbal tea is deceptive as the yerba maté in the blend does contain caffeine even if it isn’t from the camellia sinensis plant. The tea smells like maple but the flavour is more like the sarsaparilla which is the first ingredient listed. Sarsaparilla has a sort of herbal rootbeer flavour which isn’t terrible on it’s own, but it really shouldn’t be trying to pass itself off as anything maple.
Such yum! My dad brought this back for me from a trip to Canada. Don’t let the word “herbal” mislead you – this has yerba mate in it. I kept it at the office for a nice mid-morning pick-me-up. The maple flavor here is perfection. I particularly enjoyed it with a splash of rice milk. The result was just a creamy, sweet, satisfying breakfast brew. Sadly, as my use of the past tense indicates, this was a sipdown yesterday!
Flavors: Cream, Maple
So, sometimes I just can’t help myself. I see these in the grocery store and usually pick up a few if they are on sale. It’s still a twenty minute drive through the country to get home from “in town” so I like to have a little something to drink on the way home. Sure this one has a ton of sugar still, but it somehow feels better than pop, ya know?
This tea is marvellous! When I first took out one of the bags, I thought it smelled a bit odd… wasn’t sure if I’d enjoy it. But once it hit the hot water it bloomed into the scent of real Canadian maple syrup. And the taste is just as nice. A pleasant surprise—I highly recommend it!
Turkey Hill Dairy is a Lancaster County busines that is most famous for it’s ice cream and lemonade. It’s been branching out into ready made bottled iced teas and hasn’t done a bad job. This tea in particular is very sweet and so you may need to water it down. After a couple of glasses, it does leave an aftertaste, but you’ll enjoy those one or two glasses.
I usually don;t like iced tea, but I do really like this.
