This premium quality tea, flavored with all natural maple essence, is in perfect harmony. The maple does not mask the natural taste of the high grown Ceylon tea. Many flavored teas use overpowering artificial flavors which can be used to hide a lower quality tea. Natural flavors do not leave an aftertaste, giving this tea a clean and true character. It should be noted that natural flavors tend to be somewhat 'soft' with slightly muted flavors, but for many this is a refreshing change and a desired attribute.
