I brewed up a cup of this tea … maple is a delightful autumnal flavor.
Thank you to Ost for sending me more of this. I have tried this one in the past but it’s been years since I’ve had it so it’s nice to be able to taste it again.
Of course, I typed that before I actually took a sip of it. There is something … weird about this tea. Maybe my taste buds have become more “refined” – I chose this word instead of changed because it makes me feel better about not liking this tea as much as i used to. Maybe something is just off about this particular batch of Maple Tea. I don’t know. But it tastes off.
It tastes … like medicine. Maybe it needs to cool a little bit. So … I’ll give it a few minutes.
OK, five minutes later and I’m still getting a chemical, medicinal taste.
I’m very disappointed because I really enjoyed this a few years ago when I first tried it. And I love maple. But something about this isn’t working.
I had enjoyed it enough last time to give it a rating of 79. This time if I were rating it, I would give it a rating of much less… so in fairness to the fact that I did like it at one time, I’m just not going to give it any rating at all.
