A winter tradition for Ottawa residents, sugar bush season! The silver lining to the cold winter months and a great introduction to spring. It is a chance to see the production of pure Canadian maple syrup and enjoy the many delicious uses. Possibly the most memerable part of joining in is the taffy in the snow where children (and people of all ages) get some warm maple syrup to pour into the snow and make their own snow maple taffy.

This Snow Maple Flavored White Tea from Shanti Tea is AWESOME! I love maple … and it’s been my experience that far too often with maple flavored teas that the maple flavoring just isn’t strong enough to satisfy me. That is not the case with this maple tea! This tea brings the maple, and brings it on loud and proud!
Well, as loud and proud as is appropriate for a white tea, which is, in itself a fairly delicate tasting tea. And the maple flavoring does not overwhelm the tea … but it is strong. This tea is less about the tea and more about the maple, but, I’m not minding that because I’m loving the way the maple is represented here!
It is sweet and deliciously maple-y! The white tea gives notes of earthiness to the cup that I think really accentuate the maple notes deliciously. It tastes warm and delicious – very autumnal! It is a very crisp and delectable maple tea.
If you like maple teas … this is one you MUST try! It’s oh-so-good!
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!
