 (64 reviews)

type: oolong

origin: taiwan

caffeine: medium

price level: $$$$

The delights of maple are no longer bound by breakfast foods. You can now enjoy that delicious flavor you love, minus the sticky fingers! We've blended the smooth clean taste of oolong with the subtle sweet flavor of maple and rounded it all off with a hint of creme. Add a touch of your favorite sweetener (we suggest maple syrup!) and all you need to do is decide whether to drink this tea for breakfast or dessert!

Our natural creme flavor is vegan-friendly and doesn't contain any dairy ingredients. Steep at 212°F for 3-5 minutes

      Oolong teas are my types of tea. In this blend the maple is perhaps a bit too strong; however, the underlying complexity of the oolong tea is present and capable of mitigating the excess maple. Overall an enjoyable cup of tea steeped 3 minutes at 175 degrees.

      I've described this tea to friends as "like drinking pancakes" - surprising and delicious flavor!

      The maple flavor is not sweet in the tea unless you add some sweetener but this is how I prefer it that way I can control how sweet it is. The Oolong and the maple flavor pairs perfectly in my opinion. I also added a little maple dust sweetener from Plum Deluxe and that through this tea over the top! I bet a touch of cream would be so delightful!

      The addition of maple to any tea makes it a breakfast tea in my book. The flavors blend nicely!

      I'm generally not a fan of black teas and wanted to find one that I would be able to tolerate for days when I need a bit more of a kick. It's especially good with a hint of oatmilk and a few tea sugar crystals!

      Very nice balanced blend of sweet and spices. Very mild, almost chai flavor. But the black tea is stronger than the spices. If you want a milder chai, I would recommend this.

      This is so good . I drink it when I'm in the mood for pancakes.

      I love this one! Smells divine and so good with breakfast.

      I wish it were more maple forward but it's still better than some and woo-hoo no raisins.

      mmmmmmm this is so pleasant in the morning :) I don't eat breakfast anymore so this is just a treat every now and then.

    • 

      Subtle not at all full maple but the flavor is good for what you pay for.

    • 

      I was initially disappointed with this tea as it doesn't have any maple flavor that I can taste. Without the maple it is still a fine spiced tea, and is good with a bit of maple syrup as a sweetener. I would rate this higher if it were advertised as a spiced oolong, but it loses stars for not having the maple it promises in the name.

      Really good with just a touch of maple syrup as a sweetener.

      Honestly better than I was expecting. Rich and creamy, with just the right amount of maple flavor. My preferred go-to is to add a dash of sweet cream, it makes it taste so good!

      The cinnamon is stronger than I'd like however it's still a great tea to have in fall. It's also a deserty type of tea which is great!

    • 

      The slight hint of cinnamon really makes the maple flavor work with the oolong. A very good tea, and very pocketbook friendly!

      This is definitely a sweet, maple forward tea! Maple is not my favorite flavor, but my husband loves it and absolutely loves this tea. Adagio’s cream flavor is outstanding, and this is no exception.

    • 

      Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but I didn't get almost any maple flavor from this. I was looking for something as intensely flavored as Vermont Maple Ginger by Celestial Seasonings but as a black tea. My search continues.

      This is the sort of tea I want to curl up with after a long day. I love the smell of the maple and it has a nice mild taste.

      Very nice tea. The maple comes through but isn't overpowering, with weaker fruit notes. It's a very nice oolong blend that takes multiple steeps.

      Tastes like maple syrup but without much cream flavor. Sweet but heavy. It's good but not my favorite. If you're more a fan of dessert teas than I am then I absolutely suggest you pull the trigger on this one.

    • 

      Like a stack of hotcakes! Maple-y, syrupy goodness. Love the concept of this tea. Good with a touch of real maple syrup as sweetner.

    • 

      Brewed at 190°F for 4 minutes with rock sugar added.

      The flavors are exactly what you'd expect from the title given. It is somewhat close to a light chai with some maple flavors added. Overall, not a bad tea.

      The body on this is phenomenal. Overall, the maple is more present in the nose than the liquid.

      This was a really good tea to try once. I don't think I could drink this on a regular basis. A one or two time experience

    • 

      Perfect fall beverage. You could sweeten with maple syrup instead of honey or sugar. great for an autumn latte or weekend breakfast of waffles or pancakes.

    • 

      It's tasty and it smells wonderful, but whatever maple flavor there is is overshadowed by the cinnamon and cloves. Really more of a maple chai than anything.

    • 

      Yummy sweet dessert tea. Good both by itself and with milk and sugar.

    • 

      This is a fabulous tea. It resteeps well. I added some stevia and had a dinner of roasted potatoes and onion. Tasted like I was having bacon and pancakes with it. Wonderful!

    • 

      This is sweet and light. All of the flavors play nicely together, but the cup as a while is light enough to be the perfect companion to a big stack of pancakes. Highly recommend!

    • 

      I've gone through so much of this. My absolute favorite morning tea, perfect with cream and sugar.

    • 

      This is like pancakes in your mouth. I wish I had read the recommendation of using maple syrup as a sweetener. Will definitely try that next time. The flavor is mild, but it is delicious.

    • 

      The maple and oolong flavors went well together. I liked this one!

    • 

      This one smells super sweet, both dry and brewed, and it tastes amazing, with just a subtle sweetness. Not bitter at all, and it doesn't need any sugar

    • 

      Yummy! Nice creme flavour with a hint of maple. I like to brew mine for 10 minutes

    • 

      I think I am obsessed with this tea. Every time i am able to get a free sample with my order, this is the one i have been adding. Great flavor, delicious with cream and sugar.

    • 

      This was part of the sample box I purchased. Was unsure of how I would like it, but it was one of the better sweetened teas I've had.

      Awesome! It's like the comfort of a big stack of pancakes in a cup of tea.

    • 

      A wonderful full bodied tea. The maple blends nicely with the other flavors and the cinnamon adds a nice touch. This is the perfect breakfast tea. Best served hot.

    • 

      Full of spice, I don’t really feel the maple flavor. This is like spice tea

    • 

      I didn't expect to like this tea as much as I did! So sweet and perfectly autumnal.

    • 

      I found that the maple flavor was really light if not non-existent in this, and was overwhelmed by the cloves. It's nice if you want a general spicy tea for cold days that is lighter than a chai, but not sure that I would repurchase because I really didn't get enough maple flavor from it.

    • 

      My favorite Oolong. For a treat I add a bit of honey on occasion. excellent as a blending tea as well!

    • 

      This tea is like drinking a cup of autumn. Warm and comforting.

      It's alright. It tastes almost like a weak chai. Not my favorite. But it goes well with breakfast!

      This is a very good tea, with delectable pancake vibes. I prefer it in blends, but it can stand alone as well.

      I absolutely love this one! The smell is amazing too. Comfort in a cup!

    • 

      This oolong has a very complex flavor but it's delicious. Maybe it could use a bit more maple flavor, but I can still taste it and it blends well with the cream taste as well. A strong flavor, but not overpowering. Tastes like a chilly, November day!

      Many of my friends want this tea when they are over. Not being a maple lover myself, I have to take their word for how good it is and they love it, so I stock it.

    • 

      It's needs a little more maple flavor, but I still love the spice and cream taste that comes through. It's a good tea if you want those Fall flavors without overpowering yourself with spice.

    • 

      Kind of disappointing. I was hoping for just maple, but instead there's all these extra spices and the weird creme flavor, which I don't like.

    • 

      Pretty nice. Needs more cream and maple flavor. Not as strong as it smells. Maybe I should try adding a bit of syrup?

    • 

      This is a decent oolong tea, but I didn't get much of the maple or cream flavors.

    • 

      Very satisfying, yummy, and sweet, this tea tastes like a creamy maple flavored truffle in a cup, and none of the flavors taste artificial at all

    • 

      A smooth, creamy, straightforward tea that won't leave a bitter or potent taste on your tongue. An ideal breakfast tea, its moderate levels of caffeine keep it from becoming overpowering, and because it lacks the high sugar concentration of actual maple syrup, you can enjoy it without feeling guilt for catering to your sweet tooth. I enjoyed mine most with a sprinkling of brown sugar to complement the toasted, amber-colored flavor.

    • 

      This tea was very enjoyable, but neither the maple nor the creme were especially strong.

    • 

      This is a wonderful oolong tea. The maple doesn't overwhelm the oolong. It is a smooth tea and perfect for Autumn.
