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 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.
