Maple Creme Oolong @adagioteas #teaadventcalendar #adventcalendar2021

Today’s tea from my Tea Advent Calendar is Maple Creme Oolong. Sounds good, doesn’t it? I wonder if it’ll taste like a maple cream filled cookie?

The tea contains oolong tea, cinnamon, apple pieces, cardamom, maple flavor, cloves, natural creme flavor, and safflower. When I opened the packet, it smelled like maple syrup, but with a hint of vanilla.

I steeped it for 5 minutes in 8 ounces of 212ºF hot water.

It tastes quite good unsweetened. The maple flavor gives the oolong a little sweetness, which makes for a really nice black tea flavor without astringency. Then I added almond milk and sugar, and it kicked it up a notch. The milk gave it a nice mouthfeel and the sugar brought out the maple flavor more, as well as just a hint of the cinnamon and cardamom. A great tea!
