Leaf Type: Fruit & Spice Melangé
Where to Buy: This tea is no longer available from Teavana
This herbal tisane tastes of crisp apples, toasted almonds, and cinnamon all sweetened with a rich natural maple syrup taste. Drink year round to remind yourself of chilly winters around the hearth.
I admit that I have a weakness when it comes to maple. So, naturally, this tisane was very appealing to me.
The maple flavor here is blended with the flavors of cinnamon and apple and a faint hint of almond. The combination is truly wonderful. The cinnamon notes are spicy, but not “red hot” hot – perhaps its the maple that curbs some of the spicier tones of the cinnamon. The apple offers a sweet smoothness to the overall cup – and it’s a bit like apple cider with a heavy infusion of maple flavor.
But what is wonderful about it is that even though it is sweet, it is not cloying. It has a wonderful, warming taste that is truly comforting.
A friend sent me some of this tea, and as I sit here sipping it, I can’t help but feel a little wistful that it is no longer available. It is one of the best teas/tisanes I’ve tried from Teavana.
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
