Leaf Type: Black Tea
Where to Buy: Tealuxe
This tea is no longer on their website but the package states it was a result of the company’s fascination with the Canadian tradition of making Maple Taffy. The ingredients in this tea are as follows…black tea (71%), cinnamon pieces, dehydrated maple syrup, cinnamon rods, flavoring, popcorn, and white cornflower blossoms.

The tea I’m reviewing today is called Maple Splash Tea from Tealuxe. Maple Splash Tea from Tealuxe is no longer listed on their website but I thought it was worth a mention anyways. If you like Maple you will like this tea. Maple Splash lives up to its name that is for sure!
I love the aroma but that is because I love maple but I also adore the addition of popcorn in this tea. The tea leaves are a drab brown and are smaller in length while still being tightly dried and semi-twisty. Some of the wet leaves look like twigs while the others look like your typical small to medium sized black tea leaves.
After infusing Maple Splash for about 3 minutes I noticed the cinnamon aroma pop thru a bit better. The Maple aroma deteriorated a little but was still in the forefront.
This is a sweet, warming, comforting flavored black tea with Maple Splash, indeed! Maple Splash Tea is a ‘party in your mouth’ and I sure wish that Tealuxe kept it in their shop! Another noteworthy flavor to mention is the aftertaste of sweet-woody, too! The flavor and aroma linger and I like that!
