Where to Buy: Shanti Tea
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!
